Convenience that is also fun. On the Toronto 420 BT it all begins with hands-free phone calls, thanks to Bluetooth, using the integrated microphone along with the existing car speakers. And because you can synchronize the mobile phonebook with up to 1000 entries, you will always see immediately on the display who is calling. The highlight: For all those who occasionally don't want to listen to any music while driving, phone calls can be accepted even if the Toronto 420 BT is switched off completely. As soon as there is an incoming call, it immediately switches on automatically and the phone call can be accepted in the usual manner. Once the call is finished, the device automatically goes back into sleep mode - until the next phone call. It can adapt to even the most unfavorable installation scenarios using the additional microphone connection on the rear of the device, with which you can perfectly position an external microphone in the vehicle interior. But what would a car radio be like without music: From transmission from a cell phone via audio streaming, through the connection of mass storage media or your iPod via one of the USB ports, per memory card, CD, audio in or, not least radio reception - the choice is all yours. The fact that all these options are still so easy to operate, is of course all that you would expect of a Blaupunkt radio. The large 15-character display always ensures that you're in control while you make your music selection or change the settings with the second adjustment knob. In this, the separate volume adjuster is always available in parallel, which is safe and practical - for instance when fine-tuning the 3-band equalizer or making an individual selection of the next song you want to listen to. You're going to enjoy it.

I bought it to put in my Mercedes W124, because I wanted to replace my CD changer with a modern iPod-compatible unit, but most stereos look like they were designed by someone too blind to legally drive. This on the other hand is restrained, nicely square and elegant. it matches the interior style well. There aren't too many pointless buttons either - all the set-and-forget stuff is hidden in easy-to navigate menus, leaving the fascia free for radio presets, source, volume, etc. The quality and finish appears to be high. I don't know why it is not sold more widely in the UK.
Fitting it was a piece of cake, as it's one of the few modern devices which still comes with an ISO connector instead of something proprietary. This means that as far as wiring goes, for most people it's simply a case of unplugging the old unit and plugging in the new.
The sound quality is really good - better than the Kenwood it replaced.
It's easy to store radio presets too, though the reception on some could be better, maybe that's my car aerial to blame?
The selling point of this stereo is its USB and aux inputs iOS integration. it has USB inputs front and rear. I plugged a standard iPod cable into the back and it charges my iPod Classic and iPhone whenever I plug the device in. It also displays track details and if you get a call it tells you who's calling. The sound quality over this connection is great, but there are a couple of small niggles.Read more ›
I mainly use the car stereo to play CDs. I thought it was time to update my cheap and old Kenwood radio and chose this Blaupunkt mainly becasuse of its looks. Also, having Bluetooth was a bonus as I didn't have that on my car. So 5 months ago I bought this beautiful Blaupunkt Toronto 420BT
After only a few days of use I realized there were two problems with it, both related to the CD player:
1: The haptics of the selection wheels is awful (absolutely the worst I have ever seen on any car radio... ever) and it is imposible to know how many tracks are you changing while driving. Think on when you want to play that song again or you want to jump a couple of tracks? No way you can do it without looking at the screen. And even then it is not easy...
2: Randomly, it would stop playing the song, while the screen will be showing the exact second of the track you are playing and then, after a while (somewhere between half a minute and half an hour) it will all of a sudden continue playing (but not on the exact point where it stopped, just seconds later). Also, related to this issue or not, the response when changing tracks was a little bit too slow (it would take 4 or 5 seconds to start playing).
Apart from that, everything worked good for a radio on this price range: connectivity is good, radio, USB, settings, sound quality... Maybe I'd say the microphone for the bluetooth system is not very good as soon you'll find yourself screaming so they can listen to you, but I'd say that's normal as the radio is far down on the console (and that's what the accesory microphone is for).Read more ›
had problems starting the car, but on making sure the radio was turned off prior to trying
to start the car, no problems.
Once I got the car started and turned the radio on, no problems, until whilst travelling along,
when the radio goes into signal search mode, all the instruments went off until it found a good
radio signal then they came back on.
I contacted Blaupunkt about the problem, and they told me to disconnect certain wires, which
seemed to be something to do with the instrument panel illumination wiring, once I had disconnected them,
One other problem, on a sunny day, you cannot see the display on the radio panel, at night or on darker
days no problem, contacted Blaupunkt, they said "that's the way it is, and there is no fix for it".
One good point is that even when the radio is switched off, and a phone call comes in on the Bluetooth
it will automatically switch on so that you can answer your call, and switch off again automatically when
All in all a good radio, Bluetooth streaming is good, and the aux input port on the front is handy (I
plug my little Roberts Sports DAB 2 radio into that, and it works well, even on the move).
I would recommend the addition of a remote microphone to assist in the quality of outgoing calls
It does not suffer from the same going off station that other models in the range do
The sound quality is superb
I do not work for the company but I can not speak highly enough about this model.
It has exceeded my expectations
