I've been calling my Dealer, and they seem to be clueless about it.
Ideally, I'd like to find a website where it can be downloaded.
I know the phone is charged while resting in the cradle, but I have no idea if the shark fin antenna has anything to do with the cradle. Does that antenna function (transmit/receive) even if the phone is not in its cradle but is working over the BT module of the car?? Anyone have an idea?
lol, the 'shark fin' antenna on the top of te car is for BMW assist and has nothing to do with the bluetooth! The bluetooth phone does not have to be in the cradle to work. Thats only to charge it! good luckand enjoy!

I dunno know about BMW Assist (don't have one), but I'm pretty sure the shark fin antenna transmits and receives mobile phone signals, GSM in Europe etc.. (for example : here )
I think you misunderstood my question. I know that BT will work even if the phone is not in the cradle, but the question is, will the shark fin function as a GSM antenna if the phone is NOT in the cradle?
