To enable a Bluetooth® connection for those mobile phones that support the Handsfree Profile (HFP), an optional mobile phone preparation is available. It allows you to leave your mobile phone tucked away. PCM is able to control only the basic functions of the mobile phone. The GSM connection is established through the aerial of the mobile phone.
The optional quadband GSM telephone module offers convenience and excellent reception. By inserting a SIM card directly into the integral SIM card reader of the PCM, calls can be made using the handsfree facility. For even more convenience, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls via the SIM Access Profile (SAP). 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.
On request, a cordless Bluetooth® handset for the telephone module is also available.
* 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.
