2008 e92- i dont have bluetooth but...........

Hi guys.

after some help.

I was cleaning my 2008 e92 with no idrive but bmw prof headunit with usb/aux input.

now as far as im aware i dont have bluetooth, have phone buttons on steering wheel and on the prof headunit.

i was hoovering the boot out and lifted the carpet, to find a box under the carpet at the front of the boot with loads of wires going to and from and a big bluetooth symbol on.

does this mean i have the gear in place and just need to add something to get it to work or is there anyway i can retrofit it.

cheers

jamie

Id be very surprised to find it doesn't have bluetooth. Have you not gone through your menus in the head unit? It should be in there.

I think that the box is the telematics unit, and has the GPS receiver in for the sat nav, i think it also supplies the usb interface

Greer4411,
I found the same "box of tricks" in the boot of my car (an `08 320d Editions SE) and was told by a forum member that as I'd spec'd the USB option, this box is the USB hub controller that is also the controller-unit for bluetooth.
What you need is a "retrofit-kit" from BMW, but I knocked the idea on the head after learning the retro-fit kit was 430 from BMW PLUS an hour or so's labour - recoding of the car.
