7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

We had to get a "BMW" labeled V60 for full functionality - something that others have agreed with. Our's is an '04 and later models may have more options.

Mein Auto: 650i
Treo 650 Works

I have a Verizon Treo 650. Once I upgraded the 2006 750 BMW software to version 19.2, it Bluetooths to the phone fine. Note, however, that it only stores the numbers in your favorites.

this is a very conservative, "BMW officially approved" list. there are a lot of other phones which work and work well. for example, my 6230 (and any 6230i) will work. in fact, there is a cradle for 6230/6230i giving you improved reception and charging the phone while in the car.

i also find BMW UK to have a much better list of bluetooth phone that will work (since bluetooth software used in europe and in USA is the same):

2006 750i, European Delivery , De-badged , 20" style 32 BMW wheels , hardwired V1 , Nokia 6230 (fw 5.50) paired and cradled. Options/Pkgs: Sport pkg, Luxury Seating Pkg, Convinience Pkg, Premium Audio Pkg, Comfort Access, Power Rear Shades, Sat radio. European front plate

2003 996 C2 Cab 6spd. Power seats. Heated Seats. Xenon. Bose. SmartTOP. RemoteTOP. ROW-M030. V1. Evo V-Flow. GIAC ECU. Aspheric mirrors. Turbo Bumper. GT3 Console Delete. Tint. SSK. PSE mod. Suncoast headers.
