    It will work. But you may/might get noise, especially if you charge your phone while using it. And the price is obscene for a no-name brand.

    Go to Amazon and buy the MPOW MBR2. It's a known brand and comes with a noise isolator, which will eliminate weird noises while charging. Also, it's $3 cheaper.

    Wow. This device is amazing. Once I installed it it synced right away. I can now play music and podcasts static free. No more cable from the AUX port running to the phone. I can still use the steering wheel controls to answer a call OR the button that comes with the kit! Thank you for the recommendation!

    Are you able to use your steering wheel controls to control volume or change tracks?

    I can use the steering wheel volume controls but to change tracks must use the device.

    I have this item and agree it is a nice addition. I also purchased a AC/heat vent mounted magnetic wireless charging pad for my cell phone. I added the metallic adhesive mount to the back of the phone case. Now, I hop in the car, pop the phone onto the mount and it starts charging. I have my phone set to launch Android Auto when it connects to the bluetooth so AA comes on and I can play music, audiobooks, podcasts, etc while on my 60 mile work commute.
