This string addresses the following cell phone upgrade issues for North American specification Mercedes cars: 1) How to add a compatible plug-in phone to replace Star Tacs or Time Ports or V60 phones when a service provider will no longer register them; 2) How to convert a Star Tac, Time Port, or V60 system to Bluetooth, or to add a Bluetooth system from scratch, in a Model Year ’00 through ’03 Benz; 3) How to add a cell phone to an ’03-’04 E-Class or ’04 S-Class; and 4) Cell phone options for plug-in and Bluetooth for MHI equipped cars (’05 and later).It also briefly addresses 5) compatibility issues and 6) a Tele-Aid digital replacement.Beginning in MY 2010, the COMAND 3.5 used in the S-Class and the CL-Class had Bluetooth built into the COMAND unit, and did not use a separate puck.I have updated this post as of late April 2008 to account for new equipment such as the "Universal PSE" and the "Cradle eliminator" cable that will aid owners of 2000-2003 cars in equipping their cars for the many new state "hands free" laws.The new equipment will eliminate the need to find older equipment such as "Autosense" PSEs and V60 cradles, which are sometimes in short supply.I thank the contributors who took the time to bring these new devices to my attention. Please note that in most cases you only need to read several of the first seven posts!!The only thing you need to add is a compatible phone (unless a prior owner has removed the puck).You can see the link for covered models and compatible phones at Mercedes-Benz Bluetooth Connectivity (thanks for pointing that out, lkchris ).
The MHI system continued to be used in different North American models through 2009, though beginning with the '08 C-Class, and continuing with the '09 CLS, SL, SLK, and S-Classes, Bluetooth was standard equipment and did not have to be ordered separately.
While post #11 at little but history and background, it may help some to understand the rather complicated posts below just a bit better. Most of the critical information needed is in the first seven posts in this thread.
If you don't know which fiber optics type your car has, the first page of the phone bulletin for your model and year (pdf below), will tell you (See the "Notes on D2B" or the "MOST Notes" paragraph - the notes tell you which fiber optics system your car has).
So that one does not have to read through useless information, each of the six matters is addressed by a subsequent, same-numbered post in this string.
If you are searching for information on A2DP music streaming, this thread doesn't address it.
If you don't know if you have a Star Tac, Time Port, or Autosense PSE, check the parts list toward the back of the bulletins.
