I see that on numerous aftermarket radios and navigation systems, they offer a "bluetooth" adaptor kit for around $200. Has anyone found anything like this for Cadillac vehicles? I know there are numerous aftermarket systems that can be installed but who wants another LCD screen added somewhere on the dash? I get frustrated when I see all the new vehicles with built-in bluetooth and their phones work through the nav. screen along with their address books. And, these are not high end cars that have it. Please let me know if someone has found something.

Aftermarket

I have installed bluetooth adapters on two other cars in the past - Acura MDX and Honda Accord Hyprid.

They were Sony Ericsson models and worked fine, although the technician could not figure out how the stereo muting circuit worked on the Honda, so I had to manually turn the volume down on the stereo when a call came in.

On then other hand, I just took delivery on a Mercedes ML500 with a factory installed bluetooth adapter. It is sweet. The contact liust from the phone downloads to the cars electronic display and you can scrool through your contacts on the dask. The call is answereed with a button on the steering wheel and calls can be made form here too.

I wish GM cars had this, but suspect that becasue OnStar has a cell phone function, they will be slow to adopt.
