What is the Bmw Bluetooth Retrofit

By: Wayne Hemrick

If drive a BMW 3 or 5 series or X5 built between 2002 and 2006 and want to bring your car's sound system up to date, consider a BMW Bluetooth retrofit for your automobile.

What Is Bluetooth?

You've probably heard of Bluetooth, but may not know exactly what it is, how it works or why you should equip your older vehicle with a BMW Bluetooth retrofit.

Bluetooth technology (named after a rather despotic Scandinavian king of the late Viking Age) is really a type of electronic protocol - an industry standard that allows different electronic devices such as personal computers, printers, cell phones, and a wide range of digital devices to connect to each other and exchange information without the need for cumbersome cables and wires. It operates in a manner that is similar to a short-range radio frequency.

Uses and Capabilities

Bluetooth is highly effective for small devices that are in close proximity (up to 100 meters apart, depending on whether the device is Class I, II or III). this is one of the reasons that a BMW Bluetooth retrofit is ideal for the small, enclosed environment of an automobile interior.

If you're like many busy people, you have a mobile phone with you and activated most of the time - including drive time. However, use of a cell phone while driving is unsafe, and actually illegal in many places. By installing a BMW Bluetooth retrofit in your classic vehicle, you'll enjoy "hands-free" communication when receiving an important call while behind the wheel. You won't even have to remove your cell phone from your pocket!

Taking It To The Next Level

A BMW Bluetooth retrofit allows you to integrate your cell phone into your vehicle quickly and easily. One of the most useful aspects of this is the ability to activate your cell phone and dial a number using voice commands. If your phone is equipped with this capability, you can simply speak the number you wish to dial, and your BMW Bluetooth retrofit allows it to dial it for you - automatically!

In addition, newer phones and navigation systems can display information right on your vehicle's own digital displays (i.e., the instrument cluster).

No More Missed Calls

You probably enjoy playing your radio or CDs while commuting. You'll be glad to know that the BMW Bluetooth retrofit automatically mutes the music or other audio programming when receiving or making a call.

Get Started Now

The BMW Bluetooth retrofit is designed for simple installation using the original manufacturer wiring. It really is as simple as "plug and play," and afterwards, you'll be able to control all of your cell phone's functions using nothing more than the steering wheel controls, radio knobs and of course, your own voice. Look around and find out how easy and economical it is to update your vehicle with a BMW Bluetooth retrofit.
