Customer Question

Is there a way that I may use my Bluetooth connection (or other) between my iPhone 6 and my vehicle, 2013 Mercedes GL450 to play audio through my vehicle's speaker system?There's an older 30 pin connection in the storage console between the front seats, but my iPhone has the newer Thunderbolt connection, so I was hoping I could use Bluetooth.Thanks,Richard

Hello, Richard, can you give me your vin please? most times only an ipod can be used as the car can connect directly to the music where if you connect a phone it cannot access the music as easily electronically but if you get me your vin i can see if there is an updated cable to get you fixed up, thanks, ***** *****

Sure Lou. Here it is:4JGDF7CEXDA126247I believe when I purchased it, the dealer told me that I could plug in my iPhone, but at the time I had a iPhone 4 or maybe 5 with the older 30 pin (I believe it's called) adapter.I was wondering too if it could connect wirelessly just like I do when making/receiving cell phone calls using the Bluetooth pairing. However, maybe Mercedes has Bluetooth usage limited to just phone calls and not to be able to play music or other content like Audible's books on tape through my iPhone to the car's stereo using Bluetooth.I really appreciate your help!
