Video Overview


Our Range Rover Bluetooth retrofit kit was designed specific to the Rover and based on the latest BMW X5 Bluetooth system.  This Range Rover Bluetooth kit has the proper wiring configuration specific to the Rover and works perfectly in the 2003-2004 US Range Rovers and 2002-2004 Euro Range Rovers (as they were designed by BMW and based on the BMW X5 navigation computer system.)   The photos on this page show the system in Bluetooth operation in the 2003 Range Rover.

Bluetooth is a new function of the latest cellular phones that allows you to wirelessly connect your cellular phone to other accessories such as a laptop or wireless headset.  BMW's Bluetooth system takes advantage of this functionality to allow you to use your standard Bluetooth enabled phone in your Range Rover providing safe hands-fee operation while driving, plus some additional features such as voice control of your cellular phone and navigation system (if equipped).

The nice thing about Bluetooth is you do not need to physically connect your cellular phone to your Range Rover.  You can keep your phone in your pocket or purse and still use all of the functions.  Any of the pictures showing the cellphone phone in a cradle are just illustrating the optional charging and the boosting of your cellular phone antenna using the optional Snap in adapters.

 

With the Bluetooth system you can use the Range Rover steering wheel and Navigation controls to navigate your cellular phone phonebook, dial numbers, increase volume, etc.  The system also allows for the voice control of your cellular phone, voice control of your navigation system and notepad (to save a message to yourself for later replay).  The system operates just as a factory installed phone would operate in a BMW with the added benefit of voice recognition and voice control of phone and navigation.    

NOTE: Our Bluetooth Kits come with the latest Generation BMW ULF modules Available as shown in the BMW Compatibility matrix (and NOT the problematic first generation 84 21 954 552 others are selling,   Be careful on getting older ULF modules as some people have had difficulties and incompatibilities with the old first generation ULF modules.  Why use Our Bluetooth Solution?

Range Rover Bluetooth Installation instructions

The installation is very straight forward, and should not take more than about 45 minutes - 1 hour.

If your Rover was previously equipped with a Rover phone system, Please indicate when ordering so that we can provide you with the correct replacement eject box.  If your rover was equipped with phone it will look like the image below.  Range Rover kits are typically shipped with the standard pairing button.  If you desire the eject box for your installation please indicate when ordering.
