2005 MCS stereo upgrade and phone/Bluetooth question

Hi All,

This is my first post and my first MINI. 2005 MCS which has the multifunction steering wheel. I can control volume and skip/search with the OEM deck. Phone controls/Bluetooth does nothing, probably because the option was not installed from the factory.

If I upgrade the OEM cd player with an aftermarket deck with all of the bells and whistles, I understand that there is a module that will allow volume control and skip/search with the steering wheel like it is with the stock deck.

Will I also have the ability now to use the phone/Bluetooth buttons on the steering wheel with an aftermarket deck if the deck has those features?

Thanks!

Jason

Just checking back in. I'm planning to check out some car audio shops this weekend and I'm hoping somebody can answer my question about the phone/Bluetooth controls on the steering wheel.

Thanks,
Jason
