ConcertoneZX85/Genisis2 bluetooth wireless speaker recommendatiions?

I have not been particularly happy with the sound quality of the outside speakers on our 2012 ROO. I have looked into upgrading, but am now leaning toward utilizing the bluetooth feature of the ZX85 to power a wireless speaker.

We have already use it to stream Pandora from our android phone with OK success as long as the phone is in the camper, but I am wondering if anyone has had success with a bluetooth wireless speaker outside the camper?

1. What kind of range do you have?
2. Did the ZX85 pick up the bluetooth signal easily?
3. Is the sound quality superior to the stock outside speakers?
4. Recommended brands/models that work well and price?

I would like to stick under $100.00 and have found the following:

Logitech Z515: Amazon.com: Logitech Wireless USB Speaker Z515: Electronics

Creative D100: Amazon.com: Creative D100 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (Black): MP3 Players & Accessories

I like the Logitech because it is rechargable, but smaller and maybe not as good of sound quality. I want one that will improve sound quality. If anyone has experience with either or other suggestions, I would like to hear them. Something to keep me busy until camping season!

Are you wanting the ZX85 to send it's sound to the bluetooth speakers you are atlking about? I don't think you can do that. I think the bluetooth is to connect a smartphone to it to stream music or answer your phone.

If you still want some bluetooth speakers, they are more than your budget but check out the Bose ones. I heard them at my Verizon store and they were real good.

Yes, I was assuming that since the ZX85 has bluetooth that it would detect the bluetooth speakers. Is this incorrect? I'm not familiar with how it works since we have no other bluetooth devices.
