Mercedes iPhone 3G(S) Phone cradle without cable
|The genuine Mercedes iPhone 3G(S) telephone cradle is for connecting an iPhone 3G/3GS to a car with phone wiring. |
This version of the iPhone 3G(S) cradle does not have the cable for connecting to the iPod kit or Media Interface and thus fits in all current models (SL/CLK post mid 2004 facelift only) including the A/B which the cradle with the cable will not fit, and the SL, and E (W211)/CLS(W219) without COMAND which can't have Mercedes iPod kits.
** There are issues with iPhone O/S 4.0 and address book transfer which may be garbled when using this cradle **
This will not work for the non 3G iPhone, but does work with the 3GS (and V3.x software on the 3G). This cradle does not work with the iphone 4.
It charges the iPhone 3G(S), thus meaning the iPhone's 3G battery won't go flat on you and is slightly cheaper than a Mercedes HFP cradle.
Note, it will pair with the iPhone 4 but the iPhone 4 will not fit in the device - address book download with OS4.0 will be garbled.
The phone need not be in the cradle for it to work.

Please note that although the cradle uses bluetooth, it will only pair with the Apple iPhone 3G/3GS.
Please also note that we have had 2 reports (out of hundreds of users) of people having problems after upgrading their iPhones to iPhone IOS4.3 where the address book doesn't function properly. This is an issue caused by changes in IOS4.3 bluetooth, but can possibly be worsened by old versions of firmware in older cradles or in the vehicle's phone system, and by non english characters in address book entries. Firmware in the car can be updated by your Mercedes dealer, firmware in older cradles can be updated by Mercedes or by us, and you should check the address book entries (name, number, email address) for non english characters. We have alerted Apple to this and urge any affected users to do the same.
