Timeport Phone Upgrade

I recently replaced the old Timeport phone setup in my 2001 SKL with the v60 bluetooth module. The dealer said it couldn't be done but that was incorrect. I had to replace the PSE in the trunk and the cradle in the console. It cost me about $350 for the PSE and the cradle plus another $300 for the actual puck. The system works good, not as great as the old Timeport, but good. I have an unlocked GSM razr V3 and the phonebook downloads, voice quality is good at both ends, and I don't have to remember to take my phone with me when I leave the car..... it's already in my pocket! If you are thinking about the upgrade, it's well worth it for $650 of your hard earned cash and maybe an hour or two for the retrofit.

Thanks Dodman.

It is a little $ pricey. I have gotten use to using my bluetooth earpiece lately. I have to carry a phone for my business so I already have the Razr and earpiece...

Pricey

It's not cheap but I really like the integrated systems. I have an earpiece I use in my truck but still prefer the MB phone setup. It works well plus I get a kick out of proving the Dealer wrong.
