Fosgate Bluetooth dongle not working

Recommended Posts

pknappe

I have the Fosgate 5500 black box with the stock Maliview Bluetooth. I just bought the Fosgate Bluetooth dongle, RFXBT3, and it doesn't work. I can connect to it with my phone, but no music comes to the head unit. I can still connect via Bluetooth on the Maliview Bluetooth. Do I need to disconnect the Maliview Bluetooth? If so, where is this connected? At the black box?

I believe it should run through your black box, through one of the inputs

It is hooked up to the black box.

I have tried all the sorce modes on the head unit. None of them work.

I was told by the dealer this is the wrong blue tooth dongle and that the right one was $350. That's more than a new black box! The stereo guy said even if I got the Fosgate Bluetooth working I could still not control the tracks from the head unit or the transom remote. Seems sort of lame.

Just got my boat back after the dealer replaced the black box. Now the Bluetooth dongle works fine and I can change the tracks from the head unit and the Maliview screen.
