2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Bluetooth Audio

A little while back I discovered our long-term 2011 Toyota Sienna SE was ordered with Bluetooth audio. I was a little surprised by this because:

1. It's a van
2. It doesn't even have Navi

Previously I didn't think Bluetooth audio added much value over an iPod cable, but I liked the convenience of not having to hard-wire connect my phone all the time to run the music. It didn't have a lot of functionality due to the lack of Navi display, or perhaps I couldn't figure it out.

And if there's a degradation in sound quality (there must be, right?) I didn't hear it.
(I'll save the "I hate compressed digital music files" manifesto for another day.)

How about you? Is Bluetooth audio a fav feature of yours or on the wish list?
