Hi, please can anyone advise me how I can play music from iPhone via Bluetooth. I have a 2004 CLK320 which has cd changer in glove box and another box with wires and a Bovee 1000 attached. I assume that the previous owner was using it. Bovee connects to my phone and if I press the cdc button and hold it the screen in the car shows aux input. Have downloaded a music track to phone and turned up the volume but nothing plays. I have no idea what to try next. Please can anyone tell me what I’m missing. I was hoping for plug and play as I’m not the most technically minded. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You probably have to create a Bluetooth connection between the Biovee and your phone.
 
Hi, have gone into settings on phone and it shows that it is connected to Bovee 1000. When I go to iTunes it is there at the bottom of the screen where the air play button is and is ticked so should be selected but nothing is playing. If I tick iPhone instead the music is playing through the phone speakers. Have turned up volume on phone and car but still nothing. Do I maybe need an older iPod rather than my iPhone in case the problem is caused by mixing new technology with old?

I'm an Android user not iPhone but it certainly does sound as if you at least have the bluetooth pairing sorted.

It also sounds like you're using the right (Aux) input for the Bovee.

The only other obvious thing would be any cables; are they all properly connected?
 
Looks like they have been properly wired in as cable goes into a hole at the back rather than having a plug that you can disconnect. Just tried again and still no luck. Maybe I need to borrow an android phone to see if it is an iPhone issue. Everything looks like it should work which is really frustrating.

Don’t really want to try taking things apart myself to check wires inside.

Any idea what the other wire might be for? Sorry I’m a complete novice with these things.
 
Is there a separate socket (usually a round 3.5mm type) in the glove box?

Apple products can be very fussy about connecting to Bluetooth devices.
 
Not that I can see. My 2005 CLK had socket for jack plug and worked with any mp3 player. Did have to plug in to power from cigarette lighter which was a bit of a pain but it worked ok.
 
Maybe I can find something in the service history that will explain what everything is. Think the previous owner had every extra including a garage door opener fitted. History file is amazing so there might be a clue there.
