I'd like to use...

I'd like to use my android phone in my 2006 cls500, but it says "INSERT PHONE" on the dashboard and menu, but doesn't tell me HOW or WHERE to insert it.

look in the center console . there should be a phone cradle or adapter. I will send over an info of how it looks.

if you do not have this then you do not have the phone kit installed.

I have included the install instructions so you can see how it all looks, unfortunately if you do not have it installed then you cannot. they are discontinued . hope this helps.
