Upgrade Old Car player

currently own a 2011 radio version https://www.jeepsareus.com/sku/82212615.html for my wrangler. My question is how can I upgrade my player and add Bluetooth to it without buying a new player?

its usually not possible to add something that is not part of the radio spec. so if a radio did not originally include blue tooth, and u want to add it, its likely not possible, but i read the specs of the link you posted it says it has blue tooth audio so check the manual and see how to enable it

Bluetooth to FM adapters are available that plug into the cigarette lighter outlet. Some support bluetooth 5.0 and have extra features such as USB charging ports, hands free phone support and Siri support. I found a popular model made by VicTsing for $22 on the big online store. These types of devices can suffer from FM interference. If the radio has an audio in plug, there are similar devices that convert bluetooth to line audio. The issue with those is the dangling audio cable.
