This universal bluetooth kit is for BMWs that are prewired for telephone in all markets. This lower cost bluetooth kit is for all year and model E38, E39 and X5 cars that are prewired for telephone and is specific for BMWs built BEFORE 03/02. This lower cost bluetooth kit is different from our other bluetooth kits as it does not include the Bluetooth eject box in the center console, however uses a pairing button located in the rear compartment of the car used to pair your mobile phone.
This bluetooth kit is a simple and quick plug and play, However IF your BMW was manufactured before 09/01 production and DOES NOT have the DSP amp, you will need to splice in the booster amp for this kit to operate properly.
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 and videos 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 available on our other bluetooth kits There is no eject box included with this bluetooth kit. If you would like the full bluetooth kit with ability to use the BMW snap in adapters please see the other bluetooth kits on our website
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 E38s either with Navigation or without Navigation.
