The optional quadband GSM telephone module offers convenience and excellent reception. With a SIM inserted directly into the integral SIM card reader of the PCM system, calls can be made using the hands-free facility. For even more convenience, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls via the SIM Access Profile (SAP). Once the connection has been established automatically, the mobile phone’s aerial is switched off to conserve battery charge and the phone operates via the car aerial. Depending on the mobile phone model, this gives access not only to the numbers on the SIM card, but also to the phone’s internal memory. Depending on the phone, it can also be controlled using PCM, the optional multifunction steering wheel or the optional voice control system, without it ever leaving your pocket.
The telephone module also enables you to establish a Bluetooth® link with those mobile phones that support only the Handsfree Profile (HFP). In this case, the GSM connection is always established through the aerial of the mobile phone. PCM acts as a hands-free system and you can leave the mobile phone tucked away.
On request, a Bluetooth® handset for the telephone module is also available. Stored in the centre console, it features a display and keypad. However, the handset cannot be used for Bluetooth® links established using the Handsfree Profile (HFP).
Mobile phone preparation is available as an option so that a Bluetooth® connection can be established with those mobile phones that support only the Handsfree Profile (HFP). This function also enables you to leave your mobile phone tucked away. The PCM system is able to control only the basic functions of the mobile phone. The GSM connection is established through the aerial of the mobile phone.
* Mobile phone preparation or telephone module in HFP mode: The use of a mobile phone inside a car may cause an increase in the interior electromagnetic field strength and, accordingly, in the electromagnetic radiation to which passengers are exposed. If a cradle is used to mount the mobile phone, the field strength in the passenger compartment can be reduced because your phone can be connected up to the external aerial (feature depends on how specific mobile phones connect to the cradle). For information about the availability of a cradle for your mobile phone, please contact an independent accessories retailer. The use of the telephone module for PCM via Bluetooth® SAP connection or with inserted SIM card prevents exposure to electromagnetic radiation as only the car’s external aerial is ever used.
