Users Manual for the Voice Control System (features included in bluetooth retrofit kit)
The Range Rover Bluetooth system is a BRAND NEW system from BMW that allows you to use most any Bluetooth compatible cellular phone in your 2003-2004 US Or 2002-2004 Euro Range Rover. The Range Rovers manufacturered within this time period were based on the BMW system and incorporate the BMW computer system. This system can be easily upgraded to the BMW bluetooth system using our custom retrofit kit.
Bluetooth is a new function of the latest cellular phones that allows you to wirelessly connect your cellular phone to other accessories such as a laptop or wireless headset. BMW'sBluetooth system takes advantage of this functionality to allow you to use your standard Bluetooth enabled phone in your Range Rover providing safe hands-fee operation while driving, plus some additional features such as voice control of your cellular phone and navigation system (if equipped).
The nice thing about Bluetooth is you do not need to physically connect your cellular phone to your Range Rover. You can keep your phone in your pocket or purse and still use all of the functions.
With the BMW Bluetooth cellular phone system you can use the Range Rover steering wheel and radio controls or navigation controls to navigate your cellular phone phonebook, dial numbers, increase volume, etc. The system also allows for the voice control of your cellular phone, voice control of your navigation system and notepad (to save a message to yourself for later replay)
Bluetooth uses a short range wireless (30 ft) system to communicate between your compatible Bluetooth phone to the Bluetooth phone system allowing you to place and receive calls, initiate voice recognition commands for phone (such as voice tags or numeric entry), navigation (if equipped), and notepad. Complete phone and navigation controls are detailed HERE. The system will fully integrate into your Range Rover without the need for a wired connection between the phone and BMW. Images such as shown above are with optional "snap in adapters" that charge and boost the antenna signal to the roof antenna. The Bluetooth system shows your Bluetooth Phone's phonebook, last numbers dialed, SMS and call details on Navigation screen, Radio Display plus phone book on the instrument cluster if the proper hands-free protocol is supported by your Bluetooth phone (some older Bluetooth phones do not include all of the Bluetooth profiles see BMW approved list HERE). Since our Bluetooth kit uses BMW Original Equipment, your Bluetooth phone will be fully integrated into your Range Rover's system allowing you to place and receive calls via the steering wheel or other Range Rover phone control buttons. Our Bluetooth system fully integrates into your Range Rover to operate just exactly as it would if the car was manufactured from Land Rover with this technology.
The system uses most of the new Bluetooth phones available from your cellular carrier. BMW approved phone details can be found HERE.
