Parrot bluetooth kit

Im looking to get a hands free bluetooth kit for my E46 which has an OEM CD player.

My question is, when you recieve a call does it say PHONE on the head unit? I believe this is critical as if it does not, then the speakers are only muted meaning the CD/IPOD will continue to play. If it does say PHONE, then it pauses the CD/IPOD.

Anyone able to answer?

If you only have the OEM CD player I don't see how it could pause your iPod, unless you have an iPhone and then your phone will pause the music.

How my OEM bluetooth works; when synced, if I recieve a phone call, whatever is playing is paused (if AUX is being listened to it will be muted) and the head unit will make a ring out of the speakers, you can then press the talk button on the steering wheel to answer. Your music will remain paused/muted unit the phone is disconnected.

Depends on the device I guess. I know for a fact my grom bluetooth will stop music playing via bluetooth and ring then you press track up and it answers it.
