phone in C230

I am a new Benz owner and i am just curious as to how the whole phone thing works. There is a cradle of some sort inside the armrest, but nothing to go in it. What goes in that cradle, the phone or the MHI Bluetooth Interface Module?

thanks for any help

Where are you from, from the US? Which model year is the car? Can you find the part number for the cradle?

There is a bluetooth adapter which will fit in the phone cradle. The cradle was for a MB branded phone. At least that is what I was told. I got mine on eBay.

A US 2005 C-class should have the MHI connector. Perhaps this cradle in the car then:
MHI Cradle Info
And a BT adapter would fit too.

There should be a button on the cradle you can press to release it. Depending on orientation in your car, cradle either slides back or down to release. Button should be on top left or forward left area of the cradle and it may be nearly invisible.

The Bluetooth adapter will slide onto the mount in same way.

Your current cradle appears to be Q6820920 (rest isn't part of part number) and is a cradle for a Motorola V710. An option is to find one of these--Mercedes enabled--compatible with your service provider. There is no adapter that fits this cradle, rather you take it out and replace it with a Bluetooth device. Instructions here: http://www.wireless4mb.com/user_manu...10_usa_Web.pdf

Latest Bluetooth adapter is B67875878 which is $369.75 here (don't enter the B)

Information at Home as to phones, cradles, and which phones work with the Bluetooth adapter. Phones in cradles rather than wirelessly connected via Bluetooth benefit from charging via car electrical system and by use of car's phone antenna.
