The Kanex AirBlue is in fact capable of making a connection up to 38ft away, however, objects such as walls, furniture, or any other obstacles in the way of sight will cause the range to decrease.

I'm very interested in your device and have a question. When paired and playing music, if a phone call comes in will my bluetooth headset kick in and disconnect from the AirBlue (I have an iPhone 4 and this may be more of a function of the phone than your device). Thanks!
No, it should not disconnect from the AirBlue when receiving a phone call, however the music will stop playing when an incoming/outgoing call is made. In Theory, when receiving a call, you would usually select the device in which you would like the audio to come out of.

I have a USB connection in my glove box to my car stereo. Can I connect the AirBlue to this instead of the AUX audio jack? Will it also charge the AirBlue through the USB cable in my car?
The Aux audio jack is require for audio output. Yes the usb will charge the AirBlue and the LED will turn red which indicates charge.

My car has a usb connector that I can plug my iphone into to charge as well as send music through. Can I use the usb connector to charge the device as well as send music?
