I'd like to play mp3/audiobooks from my phone through my car's stereo without using wires.

My car has a 3.5mm aux input ('06 civic) and my phone has a2dp (android 2.2 on a captivate). I'd like to believe there exists a gadget that will receive a2dp bluetooth signals from phone and then pipe them out to a 3.5mm port. I would then have a short wire that goes from this gadget to my 3.5 aux input.
My ebay/amazon searches turn up units that will play music from bluetooth through an fm transmitter (i think) but i'd like to have a solid connection.
Is there a name for such gadget?
If somebody has such a unit, is it worth the trouble? How does it handle incoming calls?
