Bluetooth Module install

I purchased a Bluetooth TCU unit form Paper with free install and we finished up the programming today. It works great. With my phone, it automatically loads my phone book, and tells me when text's are coming in and I can verbally answer them. I know newer cars probably do that, but it's a new toy for my old 2005. Thanks Paper

I do it all the time.

All I do is touch the microphone icon on my text screen (iphone 5), the music stops if it's playing, theres a beep and I begin to speak. When it's done, hit send. That's it. All done through the cars microphone system.

True. When a new text comes in, the music stops and my voice prompt tells me who the text is from and then ask if I want to answer or ignore. My phone is the windows Nokia 822.

No special coding? Then must be prob with certain phones not being 100% compatible with the bmw Bluetooth sys. I'm using HTC oneX on ATT, it downloads my phonebook fine and shows missed calls, but nothing like what you guys describe with the messages.

Thanks for your input...

Bluetooth Module install

I have hot to get the next steps done on my ride. Cars been sitting idle too long. Hey Paper not sure if you remember but I picked up an 07 MMI from you last summer. Do you think if I got the Bluetooth module it would be plug and play for this.

Thanks and good info.

Your phone has to be capable of the function
& the TCU & MMI must have the text message
Options set to aktive .

I have the SMS function set to aktive on the MMI already, I see the ''SMS" option in the communications menu...but I cant select it, and I just checked my telematics .trc file, and the only line I see with "sms" are these:

TIMER_SMS_NACK
wert_02
GATS_SMS_DESTIN_BACKUP
atxus_prod
GATS_SMS_DESTIN_DEFAULT
atxus_prod
GATS_SMSC_OR_AMPS_BACKUP
atxus_prod
GATS_SMSC_OR_AMPS_DFLT
atxus_prod

I have a 08 750 and the daten file being used in my telematics unit is: TCU15MOS.C12

Can you shed some light on this for me?

((In no way am I trying to hijack OP thread, just hoping it could be discussed here since OP said he has it done and loves it...rather than start new thread.))

-Thanks Paper!

1'st = is your phone a smart phone with the features discussed ?
if your answer is yes & your SMS is indeed aktiv then .

sit in your car , make sure your phone is paired .
have some 1 text you , you should then know if your car
is set right , & phone has the feature & capable

That was my buddy's car not mine. ... and actually the cable he got and the adaptor from Apple Store like you said was enough to make it work....

Sorry if you got mad because he made an appointment or something, but it's OK man I will found another solution I guess.... I'm not in the habit of beg for something that I'm going to pay....

Thanks anyway.

& I'm not in the Habit of waiting for some 1 that does not have
the common decency to call & cancel .

Also remember it was you who called me & said you were on your way , & then never showed up .

AS for getting mad for you wasting my time , well yes !
I could have had some 1 else who had been waiting for
me to work on there car come .

You could have at least called me back & said you & your Buddy were not
coming after all .

3rd call from him = leaving dealer & wanted to know what else was needed .
informed him to stop at Apple store or Best Buy for item .


1st call from his buddy = At Apple store wanted to know what to purchase .
gave him info needed .

2nd call from his buddy = leaving Apple store with items .


4th call from him = on freeway on the way to your shop .
Informed him I would be waiting .
