Just received an email from Palm stating that the much anticipated Palm Treo 700p smartphone update v.1.10 for Verizon has just been released and is now available for download. This is the first update for the 700p on Verizon since its launch. Among the items being improved:


Bluetooth(R) wireless technology enhancements:
* Increases list of supported/compatible Bluetooth wireless carkits, including BMW and Toyota/Lexus (Denso).
* Improves overall user experience with supported Bluetooth wireless carkits and headsets (e.g. allow user to manually connect and disconnect to a Bluetooth device).


So, I will download and install this update tonight and report back if it does indeed make the Treo 700p fully compatibility with the BMW's E9x bluetooth interface. For those of you who own a Treo, you know that the phonebook does not transfer in this exchange, only the Favorites or Quick List items.

Here is the link to the Verizon update download page:
