Pairing a phone to the 2005 Bluetooth ULF

Contributed by: X5World

Pairing Bluetooth Phone on 2005 with Assist

Starting with model year 2005's, BMW has installed an integrated Assist and

Bluetooth module as standard equipment. The only option you need to
purchase is the Voice Recognition (VR) module, which is now a stand-alone
device. In order to pair the Bluetooth phone, do the following:

1. Enable Bluetooth on your phone (this is phone-specific)

2. Press the R/T button on the steering wheel. The vehicle will

ask you for the Bluetooth passkey. Enter the passkey that is located on the
white laminated sheet that came with your BMW. (note: it should also be
located on the Assist/Bluetooth module as well)

3. The phone will pair with the vehicle and you will get the following
message displayed on the phone: "BMWXXXX" (BMW & the last 5 digits of your VIN).

Pairing is a one-time activity, so after this the phone will automatically

pair and update the address book every time you enter the vehicle. There
is a maximum of 4 devices that can be paired with the BMW Bluetooth ULF.
After a fifth device is paired it will bump off the first one paired (FIFO).
