    This probably was mentioned before but would like to be sure That I'm doing all correctly
    I have iphone 5 and cannot pair it with my w221
    - Car will find my phone,
    - no problem I can authorise it
    - but pressing connect on phone itself will pop a message "not supported" ?
    Any thoughts guys ?
    Is it that software updates all the time on iphones playing games?

    Is it a Mercedes HFP, or Mercedes SAP, or ViseeO bluetooth adapter?
    Are you trying to use bluetooth handsfree or bluetooth audio A2DP?

    No adapter in centre arm rest? So that's the problem isn't it?

    If you say so
    How come then car sees my phone and does authorise it too?
    Doesn't look like I have a socket in arm rest to plug anything in
    Hmmm

    The W221 comes with bluetooth as standard, but not for handsfree - it's for using a headset with the car kit.

    There's a connector in the arm rest for the additional bluetooth handsfree module.

    Bluetooth on in the car and phone
    Search for devices in the car
    Once car looks up my phone I press authorise
    Car Asks me for code (do my 4 digit combo)
    Same appears on my phone, putting code as on the car
    Car says authorised
    On my phone I can see cars bluetooth but once I press connect it throws "not supported" message on my phone

    Yea that's it. That's the problem.
    I think you are connecting to the iPhone as a headset, not the other way round.

    How do you mean the socket for the bluetooth handsfree module is "blanked off"? It should just be a cover that you remove to expose the socket.
