Hi
I have SL500 2002 and would like to have the Bluetooth phone system fitted. Can anyone tell me if this works with Blackberry Bold 9000 and also where to go and how much it will cost??

Hi Emma - in my personal opinion, I would steer clear of Mercedes options - overpriced with built in obsolesence. I just googled your blackberry device & "Parrot" - plenty of returns. My SL has a MB phone cradle (not bluetooth) but I use a Parrot bluetooth system. It was fitted before I got the car, but it is extremely neat & works perfectly. It also didn't cost an arm & a leg!

There are plenty of Parrot installers across the UK so you wouldn't have a problem, but best bet is to identify the device, work back to make sure it is fully compatible with your Blackberry then go do the best deal

Good luck

Hello Emma, and welcome do as drmw says,,mush better and not a silly price where you end up selling the car to pay for a phone, that you will no longer need as you sold the car, I think that I got that right:rolleyes:

I have a BBerry Pearl and it was very poor at connecting to my wifes Parrot Bluetooth - constantly losing the id link and needing to reconnect. I was told that Parrot was not the best match for Bberry.

It did work fine on just about every other phone though - grrrrr !

Hope this helps.

I have paired many blackberrys with the mercedes bluetooth cradle and had no problems at all.

If i remember correctly the blackberry bold is on the mercedes approved list of tested phones to be compatible with each other
