Bluetooth provides wireless communication.
Yes, you need a compatible bluetooth phone.
With a compatible bluetooth phone, your phone will integrate with iDrive.

That website doesn't seem to discuss bluetooth, but rather the cpt9000 phone system.

In a nutshell, Bluetooth is a wireless standard and it allows a wireless connection between two electronic devices assuming they meet the standard of course. I forget the speed of data transmission for bluetooth. :google: will get you more than you care....

It works great when you can get it to work and stay on. I am using a non listed phone but it does not synchronize my contacts to the car and it turns off unpredictably. I have tried two different phones and my third try will be the razor(bmw compatible), hopefully that will work. :thumbup:

I just paired my Razr last week and it seems to work great...now I'd like to find the built in power and sharkfin antenna leads under the center console and have someone make me an adapter that can plug into the razr.

I have yet to try the razor, but my phone only works sporadically and my wife's phone works but the contacts don't synchronize. Although with her phone at least I get a caller name but no phonebook sync.

bluetooth is basically a way of wireless networking. It was originally designed in mind to network computers within a 30ft+ radius. Basically, it allows duplex communication between client and server. However, with new wifi technologies emerging bluetooth no longer remained a logical answer. So, it was integrated into small appliances such as phones and PDAs. As a result of their low power consumption and reasonable speed they have taken off. With your new BMW and a phone equipped with bluetooth you can talk through your car rather than having to talk through your phone. It provides better sound quality, and increased safety. Plus, its cool!
