Re: Stop the Presses - Bluetooth Upgrade is Here

The bulletin says about 1 hour of labor (which is consistent with what I read from across the pond), so it all depends on what your local dealer charges for labor... Around here it's $125+/hr. :evil:

Doesn't look like there's much difference with the Palm Treo features that I already have working. Still says partial compatibility and that the address book won't upload. Too bad beacuse the BT in the LR2 was fun. :(

Have all the new LRs model lines now out (FY'08) have that new Motorola BT system in them that is in the LR2?

I think it would be expensive for LR to design a new BT module around the tightly integrated "legacy" MOST infotainment system installed in RRS, LR3 and 05+ FFRR. The LR2 is newer technology with a different infotainment system (navigation and sound included), so they benefit from a more up-to-date interface, including Bluetooth... I read that MY09 RRS may get a more advanced BT system, but I wouldn't bet on something much more user friendly than what we have presently until MY2010, when the new Jaguar-like infotainment system we have seen in spy pictures recently will probably make its debut in LR's cars, and will surely include far better BT integration (and hopefully real iPod integration and a few other gizmos we lack in our cars today. :wink: )

So, do you guys think if I get the upgrade in my 06, it'll allow my Blackberry Pearl (8100) to transfer all of my contacts to my BT? Is there a limit on capacity (ie i've got my entire company in my bberry which is 1,000+)...

I would check your phone's model and carrier using the weblink Umberto posted above.

I wouldn't mind seeing LR put a hard drive in the entertainment system either. So that you can transfer and store music directly from your MP3 player, etc without having to drag it along with your phone whenever you go out. For $60K, what's a few hundred dollars more for an installed 30 gig hard drive? It's definately going to be the wave of the future for all cars. BT is the hot thing right now. IMO I think Chrysler/Dodge is on to something with their "MY GIG" systems.

Just to let you guys know...My wifes '07 is due for its 1 year maintenence next week so I asked her if she would like this upgrade. She said she already had it and uses it all the time. I checked it out myself and its true. Her phone book can be viewed on the radio display. Also, when somone calls thats in her phonebook, it flashed the name thats in her phone book on the screen. Her '07 must have been about a March/April '07 build because she got it end of April and it was a factory order. So those with '07's might want to check this out because you may already have the update.

Although the user manual doesn't say, I think there is a phonebook transfer limit of about 200 entries according to posts I read on the UK forum.

BTW, the MY09 Owner's Handbook can now be browsed on the ownerinfo web site. Indeed, the Bluetooth system looks to be the same as in earlier model years. :( However, heated steering wheel is coming on 09s! :D

Ok - I told my buddy about this update and we brought both our RRs today for the upgrade.

I got a call from the dealer this afternoon - the cars aren't ready because the techs are having problems uploading the new software on both 06 vehicles. They are calling LR Tech support on the issue and we'll know more tomorrow.

I'll let you know outcome tomorrow.

You may want to give the dealers some time to sort this one out. Seems as if LR tech line is having some trouble as well getting the new software to configure. Will keep you posted. :?

Back in late October 07 the same upgrade TSB was issued in Europe, and then "recalled" a short time later due to technical difficulties in upgrading some modules. Since the TSB came out just a couple of weeks ago here, you'd think Land Rover would have figured this one out by now. Don't their people talk to our people? :?

The key is recalled due to technical difficulties with some of the modules. That is exactly what is happening here. It can be done, just a little more than what it says. :D
