Hi all,

Am dead chuffed,,,, just picked up my new (well late 2007) E220 CDI Executive.

It has the Audio 20 Radio,,,,,, and I was expecting Blue-tooth in it - alas, it isn't.



I want blue-tooth but:

1/ I can't afford the best stuff around,,,,

2/ I don't want a 'gadget' looking thing,,,



What choices are out there to suit my criteria ?



thanks for reading,,,,,

Glad to hear you are pleased with your new toy.

If the car does not have the wiring in the armrest, you have 2 options.

1. Contact Alfie @ comand.co.uk who will tell you the costs/ logistics of installing/ coding or;

2. Buy a decent after market kit (Parrot etc.) and mount somwhere discreet (mine is in the ashtray).

Thanks for your kind reply RPE,
The car does come 'pre wired for telephone', but am not 100% certain what that entails - yet.
There is something in the armrest to do with a phone, but I think it's only a bracket,,,,, will have a better look tomorrow.

I don't know anything about Parrot, so will look into that.
I have a Motorola K1 at the moment (worst phone & back-up i've ever had).

I'll also drop Alfie a line for advice.

Thanks again

Thanks for this info RPE, unfortunately, my e-mail was returned as undeliverable. I took out the spaces each side of the @. Am about to play with the address & try again (including another 'M' in command)

Cheers

I have the Parrot CK3100 which was around £200 including professional installation a couple of years ago. I think you can buy the kits for around £90. It mutes and plays back via the cars stereo and supports the address books of 4 or 5 different handsets. The audio quality is really good and I've had no complaints from the calling/called party. I believe Parrot now do a separate module (MULTICAN) that integrates with the steering wheel controls.

Hi there, if your car has telephone pre wire then all you need is a blutooth module, these clip in to the centre console inside the storage bin. There are several sorts, all around £2-300 but they all bluetooth including downloading the phone book if you have a compatible handset. Go with the factory fitted kit if you have pre wire.
I purchased the SAP module and I think it's a great system.
Paul.
