I was wondering if anyone has hooked up their cell phone to the new universal interface MB is now offering to those of us that do not have the phone option.

How much does the interface cost?

Thanks for your comments.

Never heard of it. Is this a bluetooth interface? Does anyone know anything about this?

Here is the text of an article from infoSync World (http://infosyncworld.com/):

infoSync World : Motorola, Mercedes-Benz interface on phones



Motorola, Mercedes-Benz interface on phones
By: Jørgen Sundgot, Monday 17th March 2003, 10:42 GMT

"With the introduction of a new product that will be available
in Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the CLK, SL, C and M series from
June 2003, Motorola will provide a universal interface for
mobile phone use in cars. For the first time, Mercedes will be
providing a Universal Handy Interface (UHI) developed by
Motorola, aiming to make it possible to use mobile telephones
from various leading manufacturers in one vehicle."

"To use the system, a mobile phone is placed in a special
cradle which is connected with the telephone control unit. The
mobile phone is then linked with the on-board network and can
be operated using the multi-functional steering wheel,
hands-free system and a proprietary operating system developed
by Motorola called COMAND. An additional display system
(combi-display) will be placed on the dashboard of the
vehicle, and allows for reading and editing of SMS messages
through COMAND."

"Additionally, a hands-free system will operate using the
vehicle's on-board audio system which the two companies say
will provide improved speech quality courtesy of an integrated
microphone underneath the interior roof light. Upon replacing
their mobile phone, customers will be able to obtain the
appropriate cradle from Mercedes-Benz Accessories and exchange
it themselves. Installation of the Universal Handy Interface
into other Mercedes-Benz automobile series is planned for 2004."

Here's a picture of the universal handy connector factory installed in the CLK. One just buys an adapter for any of the compatible generic phones from MB accessories. My dealer charged EUR 109 for it (for a Nokia 6310i).

Wolfgang, could you check for me the firmware version of your 6310i because ain't working [:(]

I have a 6310 normal that seems to work but the phone that MB sold me with the car won't connect to the internal mic in the car.

All the functions work except for the mic [?]$

PS: to check the firmware on a Nokia type : *#0000#
