netbook to car stereo SD card using bluetooth?


I have a unique problem that I was hoping my Ubuntu Linux netbook and bluetooth adapter could help with...but I'm not sure. My car stereo (Dual XDMA6540) has bluetooth and an input for a 16 GB SD card along with a flash drive reader. Now the problem is that the display on my stereo stopped lighting up text (it just shows a solid color now) 2 days ago and that's the only way to visually navigate through radio frequencies and to see what song is being played on the SD card. The sound is still fine.

Now I'm wondering if my Ubuntu 11.04 netbook can use a bluetooth adapter (I have a trendnet USB adapter model TBW-105UB) to help me navigate the SD card?

Probably not. A quick qoogle on the specifications listed the bluetooth functions as hands free phone and receive audio streaming. I doubt that there are any remote control functions available. Now you could probably set up your netbook to stream music.

I don't know why all of a sudden the stereo display went blank...I'll try to call the Dual customer service when they open tomorrow and see if there was a recall on this unit or if they'll replace it since it's a little more than a month old. I may wind up just streaming music from my netbook if they won't do anything!

I would hope the unit is still under warranty...
