: Bluetooth phone compatibility

03-17-2007, 11:59 AM
Hello everyone. I have a question concerning Bluetooth phone compatibility on my 2005 X3. I have a Motorola V710 that works fine but I am looking at upgrading to a new phone. According to the BMW***8217;s web site select newer phones have compatibility issues. One example is that the Motorola Q works only with 9/05 and later production models.

My question, is it possible to upgrade the software and/or hardware in my 2005 X3 to be compatible with the new generation of Bluetooth phones?

FWIW Mine was built in 6/05 and I have some bluetooth compatibility issues with my Treo 700W. Since it's not supposed to be a compatible phone, I asked the dealer if they could just upgrade my firmware. Answer: no. But I'm not convinced they even listened to the question after they figured out that my phone was not on the list.

I had also asked my dealer about a hardware or software upgrade and received the same answer....NO.
