Music requires a substantially higher bitrate than the phone/voice-guidance features. Currently have to use my cell phone for music listening purposes, the Nav IV is "unlistenable".
It may not even be the chip. When Bluetooth devices connect, they negotiate the bitrate. Often the low bitrate is intentionally hard coded to improve reliability of the connection. A simple software change could improve the quality. The mp3 player is so inconvenient I'd use my phone anyway. For example, if I have more than one album by the same artist, Zumo wouldn't play the albums in sequence, but arranges songs from all albums in the alphabet order.
