The vehicle mount is a ProClip. (www.proclipusa.com) The model number is 833597. The device holder is the Pro Clip Iphone 3g passthrough holder. The model number on that is 915246.

The cable attaches the bottom of the device holder. I also hooked up my daughters nano and it works w/ that too. Im very happy w/ this setup.

I've had a bit of a nightmare with the install... got kit from bimmernav.com and it only had the TCU and BT antenna. According to the dealer (and this forum) it looks like I need to order more parts to make it work (I don't have the SOS button, speaker, bracket, nuts, etc)

Question 1) the directions I received make no mention of the backup antenna, where does that go?
Question 2) what is the speaker for?
Question 3) I already have 2 mics in the overhead console because I have voice command with iDrive, is the mic listed necessary?

fwiw, tischer did not know the answers to any of those, already asked.

Thanks!

1) Funny you should ask. Its still in a box, and doesnt seem to matter. Bluetooth works!
2) Have no idea. I wanted to make sure that I had every part listed so no part excuses could be used.
3) Dont know.

Amazingly after I had the bluetooth retrofitted, the non dealership I used didnt activate the BMW Assist. So when I took my car into the dealership today to get service, the BMW Center actually setup BMW Assist, coded the car for it, and did all the paperwork.....FOR FREE. Couldnt believe it. My service rep is awesome. He even comp'd the inspection fee. Now I have another 2 years of free BMW Assist (4 years from date of purchase). Now for a brake job in 7k miles!

On a side note, the tech who worked on my car today was one hot chick. Makes me want to take my car in for work more often!

One last piece of advice. I would HIGHLY recommend using a dealership to install this stuff. The place I used had old progman versions and had one hell of a time coding the car. They just weren't used to newer BMW's. Love my Bluetooth. So awesome I can't imagine not having it. The bottom line about BMW bluetooth vs aftermarket speakers and such is if it isnt easy, you arent going to use it. BMW Bluetooth is easy and awesome. Nothing like speaking a name or number and having the car dial for you.

Tischer is going to have the cheapest prices. If they went up there, then they went up everywhere.

What is that little TCU speaker for? I thought phone calls came through the car stereo speakers?

Has anyone tried the Dice Electronics solution? Based on the info on their website, it looks like a great solution for cars w/o iDrive. Price seems to be good as well.
