Mobile Phone Facility With Motorola Universal Interface Now Available In Various Mercedes-Benz Automobile Series

HANNOVER, Germany, Mar 14, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- CeBIT -- 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, the automotive division of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) has once again proven its competence in the development and supply of high-quality automobile electronics.
For the first time, Mercedes will be providing a Universal Handy Interface (in brief: UHI) developed by Motorola. This will make it possible to use mobile telephones from various leading manufacturers in one vehicle. The mobile is placed in a special cradle which is connected with the telephone control unit. When purchasing a new mobile phone, customers can obtain the appropriate cradle from Mercedes-Benz Accessories and exchange it easily themselves.

This means that the mobile phone is linked with the on-board network and can be operated using the multi-functional steering wheel, hands-free system and COMAND. An additional display system (combi-display) on the dashboard ensures optimum operating comfort. Reading and editing SMS messages is problem-free using the COMAND operating and display system. The hands-free system operates using the vehicle's on-board audio system which provides improved speech quality thanks to the integrated microphone underneath the interior roof light.

Installation of the Universal Handy Interface into other Mercedes-Benz automobile series is planned for 2004.

...unfortunately only in Germany so far. What happens is that you buy an adaptor (which isn't very expensive) for your cellphone which integrates into the generic UHI port in your car. It is quite neat!

RE: It is available but...

Has anything changed recently with respect to the universal phone connector? Do you have to purchase the Motorola phone option as well? Anyone in the US get this yet? THX

I just bought the UHI kit from Germany and should have it next week. I will install it and let everyone know how it goes. It works with the Motorola v60 GSM phone, most Siemens, Nokia 6310i. It will work with more once Mercedes makes more cradles for them. The PSE remains the same.
