My car only supports the Headset profile. I would like my iPhone 4S to be able to send Music, Podcasts etc. to the car's headset profile so that I can hear those thru Car's speakers. Is there any APP or a technique that allows me to do this ?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1

    No. There is not magic that will allow you to listen to audio via bluetooth if the system does not support A2DP.  If you have an auxiliary port, use a cable.

    An app that could do that would seriously compromise the security and stability of the phone. In order to pass audio via bluetooth to a device that does not support the A2DP profile, the app would have to 'take over' the phone function in order to get control of bluetooth audio that way. That's not a good idea and Apple doesn't allow it.

     

    Can you do it on android devices? Probably... but then again, you can do lots of things with android you can't do with iOS... like get malware and viruses, for example.

    In order to do that, the app would have to have access to functions of the phone that are sandboxed.

     

    It's impossible to write an app that will do what you want that will pass Apple's requirements. It would never make it to the app store.

    Not true.

     

    Google Search does this. When you try to search using voice, voice is redirected as a call.

    As well as Voice Memos, which are redirected as a call using A2DP in Bluetooth.

     

    But..., is there any music application that supports this?
