i did not buy the bluetooth option during the purchase of the vehicle but it is capable of having the feature. when you press the TEL option on the dash, it would show TEL NOT ACTIVATED on the screen. Thanks for responding first of all.Would you mind explaining what do you mean by "the phone feature"? I'm afraid you are making assumptions that do not hold.
Did you read the sticky at the top of this forum (from Skylaw)?
Welcome to the forum!
Yes. For about $2200 at a Benz dealer. If you want an OE-type Mercedes installation that is. But if you have the Harmon-Kardon head unit, you can buy a Parrot Evo3000 and associated CP147 adapter harness - and do it yourself for about $350. You'll also need a 6' monaural audio extension cable to get the microphone all the way up to the driver position. Six bucks at RadioShack.it is capable of having the feature.
As from the previous message, the car is capable of having a lot of features, unfortunately "activating" the feature means purchasing (often expensive) parts, not just some star diagnosis coding. Dealers should make it clear for car buyers if "BT option" means the BT adapter or the basic HF kit plus the adapter.i did not buy the bluetooth option during the purchase of the vehicle but it is capable of having the feature. when you press the TEL option on the dash, it would show TEL NOT ACTIVATED on the screen.

As I stated above, the Parrot EVO3000 coupled with the QuickConnections CP147 harness interfaces with the steering wheel buttons and car speakers. But it's only designed to plug into the Harmon Kardon equipped W211. About $350 if you do it yourself.one option i was suggested was to use a Parrot technology - EVO system. However, it will not use the MB Command System. Its a separate speaker system and controllers, will have to be drilled on the dash?? Any other ideas that could use the COMMAND SYSTEM itself??
Or you can have a same as factory installed system for about 700.00 instead of 2200
I guess you were referring to the MB OEM approach in your first message? $700 sounds reasonable (to reduce the cost, the antenna cable loss compensator can be left out).Please do a google search for iTronic BT
