Cool What is the best aftermarket device for bluetooth?

I just bought my 04 X5 4.8is...LOVING IT!! But I want to use my iPhone's capabilities with it. do you have any suggestions? I'm looking for models that will allow for handsfree talking, and allow me to play my music. Thanks

I have been looking at the DICE 1500 unit. I have a lot of things going on rt now and cannot quite get to the Bluetooth mod I would like. I have to sell my 2004 3.0 that I drove for 7 years and replaced with *my* 2004 4.8is. Post some pics of your 4.8!

As an aside, my college roommate is named David and lives in Atlanta. Until last month, he was in the 404. (Now he's out near Brookhaven.) Weird, huh?

I installed the pioneer avic z1110 bt double din dnd bluetooth works great. Once you set it up it automatically connects to your phone. I have used blackberry, iphone 3, 3gs & 4 with no issues.

I'm considering the Dice Electronics Mediabridge. I can connect my iPod and bluetooth cell and use the steering controls for the music and calling and receiving cell phone calls.
