Radio w BT Bose

I have a Jenson VM9726BT radio in my RV. Is there a way to use a Bluetooth Bose speaker also?
I like to use speaker outside and do not have outside speakers. Thx, dennis.

Folks, I looked at the radio instructions and it shows it has:

"A/V Input Accepts a 3.5 mm jack through which signals from various audio/video devices can be applied to the unit. "

After searching more on radios and Bluetooth speakers found the Bluetooth adapter. Does it go in this plug which hopefully is output also? I didn't really know full capability of that plugin.

Thx, Dennis.

Do you want to use the speaker as an additional output to the dash radio? (e.g. play the dash radio on the bluetooth speaker?)

If so, I don't think that is possible. Most dash radios are made to use bluetooth as a source (e.g. pair your phone and play your tunes on the radio's speakers).

The A/V input is an input only.. You can plug in a bluetooth receiver to play audio SENT from other bluetooth enabled devices (phone, etc)...

To use a bluetooth speaker - you would need an OUTPUT - if the radio doesn't support bluetooth out - would need to go to a bluetooth transmitter that would connect to your subwoofer. Not sure what your radio has - likely on the back of the unit...

Appreciate the input but called Jenson and they said no and then said u could go by Best Buy and see the auto audio tech in the Geek squad. Did that today and he said really no way to do he is aware of w/o and actually output coming from the radio.

Don't buy this radio folks VM9725BT Jenson if you want to do that. He said hard wire only into another set of speakers if I could. Thx but no thanks.
