BMW Pro Radio... I think we are not only talking about a headset. I
guess we are talking about a handsfree car kit. I am also planning to
pair my FR to my Mondeo, but did not try it yet, because I heard that
Hands Free Profile is not fully supported yet. I planned to do something
in this area but did not find the time yet.
