Bluetooth streaming audio codec (2013 model)

Wed Oct 02, 2013 5:11 am

Does anyone know what type of streaming audio codec the latest Leaf supports for Bluetooth?

Wikipedia: "A2DP is designed to transfer a uni-directional 2-channel stereo audio stream, like music from an MP3 player, to a headset or car radio.[1] This profile relies on AVDTP and GAVDP. It includes mandatory support for the low-complexity SBC codec (not to be confused with Bluetooth's voice-signal codecs such as CVSDM), and supports optionally: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AAC, and ATRAC, and is extensible to support manufacturer-defined codecs, such as apt-X. Some Bluetooth stacks enforce the SCMS-T digital rights management (DRM) scheme. In these cases, it is impossible to connect certain A2DP headphones for high quality audio."

Means it has to be SBC, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AAC, ATRAC and/or apt-X. Anyone knows?

IMO, bluetooth has always been a transfer method, so it wouldn't matter for that!

It would be the receiver's (head unit) that would determine what audio codec it could use and decipher!

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
