Mercedes owner June 2003 (sorry to mention name) has small article about new universal mobile phone interface that Merc has released / or is about to. The article goes on to say the electronics could interface with either command or the steering wheel controls to allow similar funcitonality to factory fitted mobile phone. Has anyone heard similar ? Needless to say local dealer (Gatwick/Malaya) unable to comment. There is a small photo attatched to the article that looks puckka.

New MB universal phone interface
Motorola, Mercedes-Benz interface on phones

With the introduction of a new product that will be available in Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the CLK, SL, C and M series from June 2003, Motorola will provide a universal interface for mobile phone use in cars. For the first time, Mercedes will be providing a Universal Handy Interface (UHI) developed by Motorola, aiming to make it possible to use mobile telephones from various leading manufacturers in one vehicle.

To use the system, a mobile phone is placed in a special cradle which is connected with the telephone control unit. The mobile phone is then linked with the on-board network and can be operated using the multi-functional steering wheel, hands-free system and a proprietary operating system developed by Motorola called COMAND. An additional display system (combi-display) will be placed on the dashboard of the vehicle, and allows for reading and editing of SMS messages through COMAND.

Additionally, a hands-free system will operate using the vehicle's on-board audio system which the two companies say will provide improved speech quality courtesy of an integrated microphone underneath the interior roof light. Upon replacing their mobile phone, customers will be able to obtain the appropriate cradle from Mercedes-Benz Accessories and exchange it themselves. Installation of the Universal Handy Interface into other Mercedes-Benz automobile series is planned for 2004.

Zoid,
Thankyou. I thought it was going to be too good to be true - but this sounds interesting. I wonder if it will install into C208 2000 CLK or wheter they mean the newer model .:)
