  1. Hi Richard, if you added full leather, navigation, colored crests & the designations we'd have the same 911's & 2003 RR's! My '03 Range Rover, like yours, has all the non-functioning phone buttons on the steering wheel. The '05 US Range Rovers & LR3's have or will shortly have available any one of 4 Nokia Bluetooth candy bar GSM phones integrated into the vehicle without SIM card removal. With GSM sevice being locally quite inferior to CDMA, I am intending to install a power & antenna wired phone cradle for my Verizon/Motorola v710 Bluetooth phone either to the right of the screen in the upper console or in the console bin of my 997 arriving mid February. I intend to operate the phone through my Bluetooth headset or a Motorola Bluetooth hands free set up. I will post pictures of the install. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  2. It's for a 997, so I don't believe those illustrations apply. The 997, has a slot under the number pad that slides out and allows for a SIM card to be popped in. The PCM manual doesn't mention a handset at all, everything seems to go through the PCM with that SIM card installed. I don't believe bluetooth has actually been mentioned for the 997, or atleast there's nothing I can find -- that would be awesome if it did do it. But I'd love to see the SIM activated. Thanks.
  3. Sorry, it is US-spec, but I'm unsure of the option. That's really my question, is it an option/part that needs to be added? And is it available on a US car? I know my Range Rover has all the buttons, but the integrated option isn't available here in the US. I'm wondering the same about the 997, has anyone gotten it installed? Thanks.
  4. My salesman said it wasn't available - didn't really go into more detail then that. And I didn't start to play around with it until tonight. Do you know if it requires additional hardware? Thanks again.
  5. Hi, I picked up my 997S earlier today - I was able to get about an hours drive in before the snow started. It is awesome!! My question is regarding the built-in cellphone - does anyone have any info on getting it working or if they think it will ever actually work. I love that little SIM card drawer. I tried one of my cards, but it didn't do anything, of course. But if anyone knows anything, please post it. Thanks, Michael
