I wouldn't even worry about the list from AWS... My phone is not on the list, Sprint PPC-6700 . I have found a bluetooth stack that makes all the functionality of the phone work. Phonebook, missed and received calls, and outgoing call will all show up on the command. You can even use voice command dialing.

The name of the product is Jetware.. JETware Mobile Software

The build is a beta but Jim should be releasing it in a few weeks. I am extremely pleased with product and their support for the product is great. They have a data logger that logs all communication between the command and the phone and if any problems arise you email the data log to support and they are usually back to you in a day or so...

Anyone that has a smartphone or Windows Mobile 5 phone should definitely check this product out if your phone is not completely syncing with your command...

Update - Treo Compatibility

The compatibility post above has been updated. NOTE - Update, June 26 2007: Some folks are reporting success using the Treo 680 with the new Bluetooth puck - part number part # B 6 7 87 5878. No information yet on other Treo models, or on service providers or firmware versions that are successful.

C230 Getting STarted

Just purchased my first MB. 2004 C230 Kompressor. I'm a little stumped by the phone thing. It has the stuff on the steering wheel and the plug in the center console glove compartment. No cradle though.

How hard/expensive is it to install a phone? I've read through the post and it looks like my car is already wired . . .so is all I need the cradle and then the bluetooth adapter? Is it possible to just put the phone in without the bluetooth?

Is there anyplace online that has a complete reference manual on this system?

Thanks.
Stacey

Benzreel,

Your car is has a D2B fiber optic bus, and would originally have been equipped with a V60 phone system if it had one. You cannot assume that all you need is the cradle and Bluetooth adapter.

The information in the third post above : CONVERTING TO BLUETOOTH, MY ‘00- ’04 (except ’03-’04 E and ’04 S-Classes) is as complete as it gets, and contains links to the phone bulletins that will help you identify what you have - or don't have - and show you how to install the basic V60 equipment for plug-in. Once you know what you have, you can identify what you still need, and determine costs. It takes more than a casual read.

Once you have the V60 plug-in equipment, then you need is a V60 puck and a compatible cell phone.

If you have a bit of experience installing car audio, even a complete installation of equipment in a prewired car (see the discussion of the meaning of prewired in the first post) is easy. If you have never done it, you may find the installation confusing.

vision135,

Your information on what phone you want to "hook up" is skimpy.

You may be able to buy a 3rd party kit for hands free operation of a plug-in phone from your cell service provider.

If you want a bluetooth connection, you need something like a Parrot device; several models are available.

Skylaw,

You are definitely a font of information. Iam new to this forum...just drove home an '00 S500 and have been all over the internet regarding phone solutions, iPod interface, Sirius satellite addition,...the list goes on and on.

I went ahead and ordered the Argos system as the people at Argos assured me it would be fully integrated w/ COMAND. However, it was $800.

As I see it now, as a Sprint customer with a TREO 650, it is my best option except for buying a phone from MB ($500?) and adding a 3rd line to my existing system. Your thoughts?

Also, I'm waiting to talk to MB about the integrated iPod before getting an after market item. I still want to use my CD changer. Depending on what MB tells me, I may get the Dension setup.

I also believe you (or someone else) know the answer to these questions. The firmware upgrade for the COMAND...is that only available from MB? Does MB have an integrated Sirius package for methat works through COMAND? Lastly, RDS...is that available?

Thanks.
