Bluetoothe Works Great! Treo 650 & -522

Let me first say special thanks to Marting at Bimmernav..for awesome customer service......The Finest.....
He got me all the stuff I needed and then I went to work following the directions that came with the package....No problems...until the Address book would not transfer....The Treo 650 paired ok...made calls but no address book....
Then I went online to where else but the X5world forum and I found this post :

my ENTIRE CONTACTS (459 in all) to the vehicle. This makes sense to me
because with my Motorola E815, I also had over 400 numbers in the
Bluetooth memory. I have a 2005 X5 4.8iS, a Motorola E815 (Verizon) and a
Palm Treo 650 (Verizon) and they all work great. Here are the steps:

1) CLEAR ANY “TRUSTED SOURCES” from the Treo 650.
2) Initialize a BLUETOOTH PAIRING
3) Perform Bluetooth pairing (but once the session is complete and the
BMW gives the confirmation BEEP, do not power cycle the car, leave as
is)
4) Go to contacts (here you can do whichever category, “ALL”,
“BUSINESS”, etc) and drop down the menu and choose “SEND CATEGORY”.
5) You will see the Treo 650 “PREPAIRING” and then “SENDING” with no
error messages. (Note you can also send just individual contact if you
want, but again, they must be done in the initial pairing state.)
6) Power cycle the car and now you should have your entire phonebook (I
have 459 contacts so far and did not have any problems). Special Note:
Special characters which loaded fine with my Motorola E815 such as
accents on name will not load with the TREO 650, instead, it will give a
“(M) WINDOWS1252” message, but again, no error messages.


It worked....
My address book is transferred I made a change toa contact on the phone..powered everything down and re-started and whaala....the change was updated to the car......Awesome...

Thanks to all of you who make this forum a place where information can be passed on and shared with other BMW enthusiasts.....

Special thanks to Martin @ Bimmernav

I just wanted to report that this work for both my 1st gen ULF in my 530 and the 389 ULF in my X5. I was concerned about not being able to transfer the address book. Another feature I like is that I can now tell the difference between Home Work and Mobile number on the MID. My V600 and V635 would simply display the name mutliple times. I am using the most recent firmware on the Treo....this site ROCKS!!!
