Adding crap in cars like this is stupid. In two or three years time bluetooth will be outdated and so will the car. Just like a laptop you bought last year, not up to date this year. I hate computer cars.

Post Nokia 6230i and Bluetooth with telematics

Hi All,

My lovely new shiney BMW 5 series (E60) has just been given a present of a lovely new shiney Nokia 6230i !!!!

I can make calls, I can receive calls.
My contacts book updates whenever I reconnect the phone.

Should I also be able to receive SMS messages on the i-drive screen ?

Thanks

Huh? So in two or three years, I'll get another car Or I could wait a couple years to get a new car, so I can have the latest options. But then I would have to wait another couple of years for the next set of options. But then I .... oh, nevermind.

Thanks!

My T-mobile MDA pocket pc phone works flawlessly. All functions work except that I have not tried the SMS thing from the car. As a mater of fact I have linked it several times without any issues. I was also able to link the Tmobile SDA smartphone. and all functions worked but I exchanged the phone for the current MDA

Will a Nokia 6128 or 6125 work with the Bluetooth?

Will a Nokia 6128 or 6125 work with the Bluetooth in the 5 Series without issues?

Reason for asking is because, I had issues with my previous car (X5 4.4i 2005). The bluetooth module froze up and I had to get it reset by the dealer. Using a Blackberry 7105t worked fine.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Bluetooth Compatibility in 530i (2004)

I have a Nokia 8800 which pairs successfully with my car. However, the connection usually drops a few seconds later and when you do make a call the sound does not come through the cars speakers. As a result everytime I want to use the phone in the car, I have to put my simm card in my old Nokia 6230i phone which works perfectly in the car!
My local BMW dealer has said I should bring my car in for a day with my phone so that the Bluetooth software in the car can be upgraded. I got the impression this will be done under warranty. Has anyone had this done?

X5 bluetooth Verizon treo 650 setup

Does anyone have any new news on setting up the verizon Treo 650 with the X5? I have paired it up to my X5 and then the phonebook starts to download and then it resets my phone. Is there anyway not to download the phonebook? I would appreciate any help.

What does Barely allows the handsfree mean?

returned the N80 to nokia they said that they would be surprised if any Nseries worked with bmw. I think its symbian OS phones that is the problem becuase the SE P900 will not work either. anyone have any experinece with any smart phones besides the mda , smt , or 2125?

The phone is very similar to the oh so popular Razr phones but it is a smartphone.

Has anyone and any experience with a Nokia N73?

I just returned a Nokia E60, Firmware version 1.0610.02.15. Besides other problems it would get in an endless loop of connecting and disconnecting.

Car model: '06 330i, No iDrive, Delivered 7/26/2006

Phone model: Nokia 7610, Firmware V4.0421.4, 22-05-04
The 7610 will on occasion fail, getting into and endless connect/disconnect loop. I then have to power cycle the phone. This does not happen very often.

[ ] phone book automatically synches to car

Phone model: Nokia 6810i
The phonebook will download into the car and the entries can be selected
via the radio buttons but if I attempt to use voice command I get an error that
the phonebook is empty.

I've used several verions of Motorola's V series including the v60, V600, V551 V635 and now the V557. They all worked fine except in order to get the phone book to display on the Nav screen I first have to select Dial and then Directory. If I press Directory first the system just hangs. No SMS but everything else.

What does Barely allows the handsfree mean?

Just returned the Motorola Q phone which worked very well with the bluetooth inmy car, but the batter life on that phone doesn't last enough to be worth keeping. Anyway returned it for a Palm® Treo™ 700w (Verizon Wireless) and all features work except SMS messages. The following problems I have found are

1. I noticed was when I get a phone call the caller I.D. uses the previous number called instead of the actual number calling.

2. The antenna/signal strength display does not show the strength. it only shows a antenna, so am not able to tell what my signal strength is until I look at my phone.

Phone model: Palm® Treo™ 700w (Verizon wireless)
Car model: '07 525i

[x] Caller I.D. shows previous caller I.D.

Hope this helps.
