My car has a StarTac phone in it that I've not used. Can a newer type of cell phone be installed in the car - is there an adapter for later phones? If so, any recommendation who to get them from?

THanks

I had the CPT-8000 in my '00 M5 and replaced it with BMW bluetooth.

Check out http://www.bimmernav.com - He sells a conversion kit that is plug and play.

You will need to get the Bluetooth ULF from another source, as he doesn't provide that piece. My total was about $600, and it was working in 1/2 an hour.

The bluetooth module also comes with voice recognition - a nice add if not already optioned in your car.

There is a good forum dedicated to bluetooth retrofits here:

You might want to research which phones work best, as not all phones advertising BT support are compatible with the BMW solution. I have a Moto v551, which works great ;)
