What is JagDroid-BT?
JagDroid-BT is an upgrade to the Jaguar factory CD, Cassette or MiniDisc player which adds Bluetooth audio streaming capability so that you can pair your phone or other Bluetooth device and play music through your Jaguar audio system. JagDroid-BT was formerly known as JagDroid-CD and JagDroid-Cassette.
It is a fully integrated solution which allows use of the existing steering wheel controls and front panel buttons to skip tracks (See limitations in the note below) on your Bluetooth device, and no additional wiring or external buttons are involved so the modified unit is plug and play and looks absolutely factory.
JagDroid-BT uses AptX technology and the latest Bluetooth version 5.0 to offer CD-like audio quality, and as it injects audio directly into the Jaguar audio system the sound quality is far superior to alternatives such as an FM transmitter.
The original player still works as normal, and you can switch between CD/Tape/MD and Bluetooth audio by pressing the A.MEM button with media in the drive while it is playing.
JagDroid-BT does not support handsfree telephone calling, only music streaming.
Which Jaguar models does it work with?
It is available for the following Jaguar models:
- Jaguar XJ (X350 & X358), S-Type and X-Type 2003-2009 model years, for touchscreen or non-touchscreen systems, CD player, Cassette or MiniDisc, with Alpine Premium audio or Standard audio systems
- Jaguar XJ (X308) 2000-2003 model years
- Jaguar XJ (X308) 1997-1999 model years
- Jaguar XJ (X300) 1994-1997 model years
- Jaguar XK8 & XKR (X100) 1996-2005 model years
It is a simplified alternative to the full JagDroid system for those who do not need the full Android experience, but do want to play music from their phone or other device through the Jaguar audio system.

Please note that JagDroid-BT does not support handsfree telephone calling – you must use the original Jaguar bluetooth module to handle telephone calls. Your phone should be paired with the Jaguar bluetooth telephone and JagDroid-BT devices at the same time, and it will automatically use the correct device for music or phone.
