    Hi folks,

    I own a W163 and have retro fitted command. I do not have a cradle in the centre console and wondered what was the best way of connecting a phone

    Ideally I would like to control it through the comand

    Cant give a phone model as this will change periodically

    Regards

    Pete

    You would be best off with a D2B phone kit which will give you UHI. You can then attach a cradle of choice for the phone, including bluetooth if desired.

    The parts with prices can be found from the Comand Online link above. Just find the D2B kit as Alfie suggested.

    If I remember right, I did not find an ML (163) completer kit listed, better to ask Comand Online or other sources directly or install the BT adapter to the glovebox as suggested. The BT adapter can be found from Comand Online too.
