As convenient as the integrated BT was, a $25 Motorola BT speaker was a much smarter move for me.

TCU failure is pretty common, and apparently there's a list of "approved" phones to use with the BMW BT link so ya know....sorry to rain on the parade, but be prepared.
First, we'll see if it works or not.
I have a Motorola device (but probably a touch more expensive than the one you recommend). It is useless for because, when the top is down and I'm driving along, I can't really understand what people are saying and they for sure cannot hear me clearly. So this may be better.....
