Hello all,

I've been trying to find some info on the pre-wired phone components in the C230. I'm trying to put in my own phone, since the $$ MB wants for their phone is a bit excessive.
Some forums have hinted at the fact that the black cap right by the rearview mirror is actually a microphone; does anyone know where this goes? There's a connector in the armrest, and another in the trunk, I'm guessing it goes to one of these, or maybe both.
I realize I won't be able to use all the cool features (like caller ID on my dash display... cool....), but I'd be happy with a hands-free type setup, WITHOUT one of those big plastic things hanging off my cigarette lighter.
Thanks for any help you guys can provide...

Ivan

The black "button" is a mic. Do you have the Tele-Aid system? That's what it's for - because obviously the TA system uses built-in cellular equipment. I ordered the V60 phone system (having it installed tomorrow actually) and the parts guy asked me if I had Tele-Aid and the mic near the rearview. I'm sure they'll integrate the phone with that mic.

You're right though - it's an EXPENSIVE phone!
