OEM Bluetooth adaptor 2008 CLS 550
Newbie here and happy to discover this forum.
I purchased an OEM bluetooth adaptor which plugs into a connector housed in the center console. When I initially start the car, I can see the adaptor go into discovery mode via the flashing blue lights. However my cel phone, an iPhone X, does not "see" the adaptor for pairing. Eventually the blue lights quit flashing and when I press the pairing button (on the adaptor) the unit doesn't re-enter discovery mode. Restarting my car DOES initiate discovery mode. My question is whether or not my iPhone X is compatible with the OEM adaptor? Is there an actual list of compatible phones with this particular unit installed? Finally, if anyone knows, what name would show up on the list of devices on my iPhone (e.g. MBZBT, etc)?
Input is certainly appreciated.
