SORRY - 997.2 - Bluetooth / Spotify question......again

I've just purchased a 2011 - 997.2 with what I presume is PCM 3.0
It has Bluetooth Telephone connection which works perfectly but no USB / Ipod sockets in the centre consol so I cannot play other music apart from Radio or CD. This also means I have no AUX button. I have CD / Radio, Nav etc etc
 
What is the definitive answer to allow me to stream Spotify music to the unit from my iphone?
I realise there are so many posts regarding this but in every case all the other cars appear to have the sockets in the centre consol area.
Thanks

    I use this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bovee-Wireless-Bluetooth-Interface-Integration/dp/B00B52LLJ6/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=bovee&qid=1560333236&s=gateway&sr=8-1
     
    it plugs into the cable which would otherwise plug into the iphone and just works :-)

    Hi again,
    I've looked at the product you mention which says I have to connect the gizmo to the 30 pin connector. I don't appear to have any connectors, inputs etc so what would I wire the Bluetooth Music Interface Adapter into?
    THis really is an issue I want to overcome as soon aspossible but there are so many different versions.
    I may have also read somewhere that you can send your PCM unit away for a software change???
    Thanks

    Are you looking for a wired or wireless solution or does it not matter to you?

    "Thanks Joe, that's really helpful... I appreciate you going to the bother of sharing links to the products i need but I don't seem to have any sockets in my centre console."
     
    Ah OK, perhaps try reading your manual to check if you are looking in the right place?

    Ideally Wireless
    I've seen loads of bits on the Tranzit Blu but not sure what it plugs into on the back of the PCM if I don't have an AUX facility

    Fair enough.  The sockets are located in the armrest behind the hand brake not the centre console where the stereo sits.  I thought all were delivered with the sockets...

    Your going to love this one Joe.......I don't have any in the compartment behind the Handbrake......I don't have any anywhere. The phone connects via Bluetooth but I can only listen to Radio or CD which gets a bit limiting.

    I would think the only option would be a FM receiver bluetooth module that connects to your phone by bluetooth and then can transmit at a preset FM frequency on your radio. There are many available and usually plug in to your lighter socket for power.
    You could also go to an OPC and have the universal adapter/ aux option fitted, but unsure if cost would make that option viable.
