Mein Auto: 2002 745i
Question Bluetooth and Satellite Radio

1. Bluetooth- I was looking for or how to use my Iphone 4 in my 2002 745i. In the armrest there is a connection for some type of phone. Am I suppose to purchase a phone that goes there or am I suppose to get someone to exhange that phone connection wire with a IPhone connection?

2. Also, I really would like to have Satellite Radio in the ride. I was told by a specialist that he can take away that WB Antenna and replace with Satellite Radio Antenna. Has anyone done this already. I am trying not to get Satellite Radio and have it play through FM stations.

By "call and make arrangements" he means that you have to call Sirius and tell them that you want to activate your radio...

alot of the cars were prewired for sat radio, U can usually find the modules used and they should plug right in.

Thanks, I will have to order the CPT.. My ride didn't come with the SAT as an option. I do have WB. I was thinking they can change that WB Antenna with SAT. Thanks

Being pre-wired shouldn't there be an open connection in the trunk somewhere to plug it in to?

If you have done the Ipod conversion, use the Iphone app for Sirius or XM.
