Bluetooth music streaming
A quick review, in case anyone's considering adding a wireless music streaming from their phone capability to their boat's stereo... I bought a Bluetooth transceiver from Crutchfield.com (I have no connection to them) for about $40 named "MIL-BTREC". This particular device is available from a lot of outlets. It's marketed for autos, and that's where I installed it, but the box says "Marine" and it does seem to be packaged in a fairly water resistant manner. The only connections are for 12V power and line-out left and right audio. So far it works without any hassle. I'd add one to my boat but my old stereo is so cheap it has no line-in or auxiliary plugs. This device does not (as far as I can tell) enable phone calls through the stereo. Devices to do that as well as stream music seem to be going for more like $100 and include a wired microphone. That's all.
