How can I find out what kind of system i have?
I have the SA633 Radio & Navigation system with BMW Assist included. The BMW Assist is active and working for 2 months. My Bluetooth handy and snap In adapter are two weeks old.
Is the matin system working together with the bmw nav and is the cradle "compatible" or is this complete seperate. Do i have to buy a new radio?

The fact you have BMW Assist means you have the Bluetooth/Assist Combo unit manufactured for BMW by Motorola. This is the unit I have, and also have the same problems with the W810i

You could remove the Combo unit, and replace it with the Bluetooth only unit (manufactured for BMW by Visteon - the one Martin sells at http://www.bimmernav.com) .. however you would loose BMW Assist functionality.

There are also multiple versions of each unit. I "upgraded" the combo unit in out 04/'04 because the bluetooth didn't work and we wanted to retain assist. The new model which was the '05 part worked, but at some point the Assist portion failed. BMW replaced it with a newer part (also a motorola part I believe) and I noticed signicant improvements with the newer module. The first was the time it took for the intial phone book transfer. With the old module it took a very long time i.e. over 1 hour, with the new module it was just a few (~10) minutes. With the older module, when the phone was paired with the car, you couldn't use the handset (it would take forever to respond to key strokes). With the new module it behaves as I would expect it to...
I really want to get the W810 and a snap in, but I don't want to buy it and have it not work with the car. When Cingular picks up the phone here in the next couple months, I'm going to see if I can test one out with the car before I buy it.

I also found problems with my k750i in the UK and receiving / making calls with it in and out of the cradle. In the end, I re-paired the phone with the car but loaded the phone into the cradle before pairing it....this seemed to resolve the call answering / dialling issue. I think it comes down to the profile changing with the phone is put in the cradle and the options within this profile when the phone is in the cradle.
I have now also discovered that not all contacts are uploaded to the car but my wife has a 2006 Z4 with BT and it works 100% in her car...so into the local dealer on Tuesday to look at this. Hope I can convince them to replace the ULF and see if it works.
