    BMW Bluetooth Upgrade Module(BTUM)

    Dunno how legitimate this is, but it's being sold by a BMW Dealership. .

    Here is the link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=5863377273


    And here is the copy from the listing:

    BMW is pleased to announce a revolutionary new product that allows customers with any CPT9000 hands-free phone system to update their vehicles to use Bluetooth® wireless technology with one simple device. The Bluetooth® Upgrade Module (BTUM) is shaped exactly like a CPT9000 (Motorola V60 series) phone and is installed into the phone cradle in place of the original CPT9000 handset. It provides the link between an approved Bluetooth® phone and the vehicle’s original phone system. Up to 2 different phones can be paired with the BTUM; however, only one can be used with the system at a time. The BTUM allows the customer to continue to use the original functions of the phone system in the vehicle but now with a BMW approved compatible Bluetooth® phone.

    These features include:
    • Multi function steering wheel telephone controls (MFL), if equipped, to send or end a call

    • Display the address book of an approved phone and dial a stored number (500 contacts per phone)
    • Telephone dialing via the on board radio controls or iDrive (as equipped)
    • Voice recognition SES (if equipped) dialing and name tags
    Important: The BTUM module does not power or charge the phone handset or provide a link to an external antenna. Please refer to owner’s manual for additional important information. While Bluetooth® wireless technology is a global standard; there are a variety of profiles that manufacturers can choose to implement in their Bluetooth® devices. In certain cases, the BMW BTUM and the Bluetooth® mobile phone do not share the necessary profiles to work together as a hands-free system. For this reason, not all available Bluetooth® phones are compatible with the BTUM.

    The list of compatible phones that have been tested with this system are provided below:

    Motorola E815, Motorola V3c Razr, Motorola V551, Motorola V330, Nokia 6230, Sony Ericsson T637, Sony Ericsson S710a.

    I just grabbed it on a whim, we'll see if it is true!

    I did some more digging and found out that the same module is also being qualified for Jaguar as well, so it looks kosher.. the BMW part number is: 84 11 0 410 145 and it is supposed to retail for $295.00

    Anyone else know if this is for real?

    Re: BMW Bluetooth Upgrade Module(BTUM)

    Just confirmed w/BMWNA that this is true.

    I can't wait to get one.

    It was released on Thursday.

    295 MSRP.

    What a simple solution!

    Sorry Aardvark. Too little, too much $$$, too late.

    BMW BTUM

    I read the PDF link and noticed its written for the E60 (5 series). Does it work on the E65 (2004 745i)?

    Hopefully there will be something for those of us with the CPT8000 that came in the 2002 E65's

    just ordered one!

    I just placed an order with my dealer...They did not know about this but the number did come up in the parts system with description "BTMU". It is on national "hold" orderability status right now.

    Re: BMW BTUM

    The actual BMW document is not vehicle - specific. It simply references the CPT 9000 and the compatible BT phones.

    I am glad i was proven wrong


    but to be fair to me, i think this product was developed completely by motorolla and not by BMW - they will just be selling it.

    now i want to be proven wrong about iPod kit :)

    02/CPT8000 question

    I never upgraded by phone from the 8000 to the 9000 since neither phone was very compelling...does anybody know if this upgrade will be required to make the BT upgrade work? and if so, any estimate on cost? TIA

    Doubtful, way to cheap

    The ones from the dealer for factory equipped Bluetooth can run around $1500.
    In your E65 you will/may need wiring for the blutooth antenna along with the antenna, then a dealer willing to install it.

    So far I have not heard of any Buetooth for 745's, but I can check into it.

    It looks like it is only for the 9000, according..

    ......to the PDF file, a 8000 user would have to do a retrofit to a 9000 first to get the correct cradle.

    I confirmed that this is legit with BMWNA

    The rep was only told about it on Thursday.

    What a cool solution. No coding. Just pull out the old phone (anyone need a Verizon v60?) and pop this baby in.

    Interesting dealer pricing

    Called my local dealer. The parts guy looked up the part and quoted me a price of 345. I told him that the bulletin says 295. He said he could do that. Then I said I was BMWCCA member and he told me I would have to come in and show my card for the member discount.

    Butt=ole.

    Re: It looks like it is only for the 9000, accordi

    How would one go about getting this retrofit for the cpt8000? If there were an issue with the current cradle, would that be covered under warranty?

    Nice. "He could do that"...

    Nice of him to agree to sell you a part at full retail price and not hammer you additional $$ for the privilege of patronizing his employer's business. Unbelievable.
