I have a Sony Ericsson w995a and a car stereo that does not have bluetooth capability (I dont want to replace the stereo)
The stereo has Audio in which allows me to connect the stereo to the phone via cable, however I want to be able to do this via Bluetooth.

I have a Sony HWS-BTA2W that allows me to connect the Stereo to the Phone via Bluetooth which supports bluetooth audio streaming which is what I want, however it does not support hands free so I still need to hold the phone in the car.

Can I connect a portable bluetooth hands free kit so it picks up the calls but ignores the audio streaming? If so what device would I look for?

Or is there a device (thats not to expensive) that will allows audio streaming (with audio out to connect it to a car stereo) that also allows me to connect it to a 12v source as well as allowing hands free?

I hope that all makes sense

IME a earpiece and a stereo headset connected together end up doing what you are wanting to do some of the time, other times the audio goes to the stereo headphones and uses the mic in it.

The 2 parts of it (headset and a2dp) dont seem to be able to be connected seperatly on a phone like you can in windows.
