Bluetooth Features and Functionality

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's Bluetooth system takes advantage of this functionality to allow you to use your standard Bluetooth enabled phone in your BMW 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 BMW. You can keep your phone in your pocket or purse and still use all of the functions. Any of the pictures showing the cellphone phone in a cradle are just illustrating the optional charging and the boosting of your cellular phone antenna using the optional BMW snap in adapters.

With the BMW Bluetooth system you can use the BMW steering wheel and radio controls to navigate your cellular phone phonebook, dial numbers, increase volume, ect. 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). The system operates just as your BMW factory installed phone would operate with the added benefit of voice recognition and voice control of phone and nav.

BMW Bluetooth Systems are for BMWs either with Navigation or without Navigation.

NOTE: Our Bluetooth Kits come with the latest Generation BMW ULF modules Available as shown in the BMW Compatibility matrix (and NOT the problematic first generation 84 21 954 552 others are selling, Be careful on getting older ULF modules as some people have had difficulties and incompatibilities with the old first generation ULF modules.
