Ok.
So it's my understanding that 02's and 03's came with CPT8000's or Motorola Timeports (looked like a Star-Tac).
This is verified by opening the center console, and you should have a coiled cord which attaches to the phone.
Model year 04 and up, get a CPT9000 or a Motorola v60.
This has a cradle/dock thingie.

so if I have a 2004 745 with the cradle/dock thingie, yet a V60 will not fit in it... what does that mean?

means you have a 2003 manufacture date which did not include the v60 model but the timeport.

so does this make a BTUM install a bit more difficult?

you can use the cpt 8000 instead of the cpt 9000

Welcome at least you should get it to work now. Also the older phone cradle is longer than the new which use a puck.

I got it. It is the 9000/ v60... there was a 1/2 in spacer that was stopping it. It wont recognize the phone (meh). But it fits and charges.

you should get the 9000 and use ANY phone with bluetooth
