Default blue tooth on e500

Hey,

Is it possible to buy an blue tooth adapter for the phone jack that comes stock on an E500? particualrly to make it work with the stereo/number pad on the stereo.

I've also considered buying a new head unit for since i dont have navi, was thinking about the stock navi system with command.

Any advice is always greatly appreciated. =)

i don't know much about blue tooth except for the later version nokia. besides, i don't have any idea about your car year model and options.

if you can provide your VIN, then i can know the right navigation system to install.

It is possible to retrofit a DVD comand - with or without navigation drive - in a 03/04 E-class (W211). However, depending on where Playaplaya is located, he may need some additional stuff, like Audio Gateway and such...

It is NOT possible to retrofit DVD comands in earlier E-classes (W210s), but you can install a CD-rom based comand in those cars. You do need to replace your current wood panel then!

Bluetooth phones are highly overrated! There is nothing Bluetooth-wise which can or will work in your MB... for now... if ever...

You should probably try and find a UHI phone kit for your car, although I know we (MBenzNL) are not yet able to offer complete self installation kits for W210s and W211s. We need to do some test installs first...

greetingz,

BigSis

thanks for the all great replies guys. the car is a '03 E500. Not sure how it worked in other parts of the world, but in the US (new york), if you purhcased the navigation package, they gave you a coupon and basically a new car when naviagation becomes evailable. I didn't do that, so i got a the standard stereo with the 6cd indash changer... I really want to make the motorola razr work with the car =/... the dealer is telling me that i can't add an '04 navi in there, and they're saying that tehre are no blue tooth adapters for mb yet in the US...

i'm too lazy to go outside right now and get the vin #, but thanks to everyone for their help so far... anymroe comments are always appreciated =),

merry xmas and a happy upcomming new year =)

yes you can install a navigation in the 2003 E 500 and you can install the dvd command if you like Mercedes for got to install the navigation harness in the trunk only in 300 cars all the rest of the E class should have the harness all you will need to do is plug in and play if you like more info WWW.MBDOCTOR.COM

It's like MBdoctor says: if you have a 2003 US spec W211, it is possible to get a comand head unit; either a US spec which is capable of adding an original MB SAT radio, or a Euro spec head unit which is capable of playing movie DVDs and MP3.

A navigation drive in the trunk can be installed as well, but you may need another trunkliner. That depends on the extra options your car came with from the factory...

If I am not mistaking, MBenzNL may be able to offer the UHI phone kit as a custom install within short.

greetingz,

BigSis

PS: Happy New Year to all of you!
