With my phone I just enter the phone book, select all entries (or all I want to transfer) and then send all as a business card (vCard) to my COMAND. The whole phone book can be transferred in one go. It may be a bit different with your Motorola phone but the idea should be the same.The manual doesn't say anything helpful. I've got a new C300 with Multimedia package and a Motorola W385. Can I get my phone book into Comand directly or do I need to enter each number manually?
That isn't completely accurate. The US W221 for example does have a local phone book. You can store phone book entries that are available even if the phone was not in the cradle (in the car). I did not check this really for the W204 but I'm pretty sure it has the same functionality (and some more).USA Mercedes Command systems download the phonebook from your phone everytime the system is powered up and/or a phone is "connected." You don't do anything. Command does not "save" anything from your phone.
If yours doesn't work, it means your phone isn't compatible.
True, of course when you say it but what Kent stated was like all US Comands behaved like that. This was not accurate as the later versions of US Comands do have a local phone book and they can store phone book and address book info.Kent is describing the way my phone and older COMAND interact - the COMAND reads the phone's memory and just displays it on the screen. As far as I know, there is no data transfer and no memory in the COMAND itself.
I did not know about the newer versions so thanks to Diesel Benz for the information.
I don't think this would be a compatibility issue, at your phone or at the COMAND. It is just a phone user interface feature allowing to send multiple visitor cards on one go. Perhaps you could find it from your phone user manual (my Nokia certainly has the feature, it may not be that straightforward to find from your phone, perhaps it even does not exist but I would have a look at the manual).i guess my phone isn't compatible. I had to send them over one by one using bluetooth. Only took about 15 minutes. Next, I need to figure out voice dialing.
