VolksWagen Passat 2005 with Bluetooth SIM Access Profile
Posted on 6-Mar-2005 17:52 | Tags Filed under: News



The new Volkswagen Passat will come equipped with the Premium handset integration product from Nokia Automotive. This makes Volkswagen the first automaker to offer its customers a factory-fitted automotive communication solution that supports the Bluetooth SIM Access Profile.

The product, called Nokia car phone with Bluetooth technology allows the user to enjoys the benefits of a car phone with external GSM antenna, and handsfree mode, while maintaning the GSM identity - same phone number and SIM card as the mobile phone.

Many applications can be controlled via an external alphanumerical keyboard, the multifunctional steering wheel or voice dial. At the same time, the Premium handset integration product provides the ability to access personal contact data stored in the mobile phone using Bluetooth wireless technology.

Via the Bluetooth SIM Access Profile, the system can access the SIM card of a compatible mobile phone and log onto the GSM network. As soon as the user gets out of the car or presses a certain button on his mobile phone, the receiving mode is deactivated and the mobile phone automatically logs back onto the mobile network.

Optimally integrated into the vehicle environment, this solution includes key functions such as radio mute and downloading of phonebook entries from compatible mobile phones via Bluetooth wireless technology, as well as additional basic functions such as voice dial, taking and ending calls, and redial.

The product is available in the new Volkswagen Passat during summer 2005.
