    contact a local dealer with the vin no/ chassis no and they should be able to tell you if the vehicle has been prepped for bluetooth

Even if you have the handsfree kit installed (a little mic above the steering wheel console + the nice little bluetooth button on the steering wheel next to the radio controls) it does not mean you actually have bluetooth. Check your trunk. If you have the bluetooth module, it will be a black box, about half the length of a VHS and visible against the wall seperating the trunk from the inside of the car. The wire usually leads from the center console into the trunk and on some occassions, the module can be hidden under the mat you have to take out when accessing your spare.

Hope this helps!

I cannot paire any phone thrue bluetooth with my x5 BMW 2005

I know that 2004 BMWs used a Bluetooth protocol that is now obsolete. There are no longer any cell phones made that will pair with a 2004 BMW unless you get a very expensive upgrade to your Bluetooth module from BMW. Not worth it. When my wife got a new phone several years ago, she had to switch to aftermarket Bluetooth devices because as I recall, it was something like $2k to upgrade the Bluetooth in her '04 330i.
I was under the impression that 2005 BMWs use a more current Bluetooth communication protocol, but I don't know that for sure. If your car is an early 2005, I would suspect that perhaps it uses the same protocol as the '04s.

Hello, I have bought recently a MBW X5, 2004 the date of manufacture, face lift and it writes me on the panel ''arrival...'' and I do not know what does mean. And a second question how should I active the...

on the end of your turn signal stalk, there will be a button. push this and you can scroll through different items on the dash (eg, avg mpg, distance to empty, avg speed, arrival time, stop watch, speed limiter, etc). i usually leave it on MPG or DTE. arrival is to enter a time you want to arrive at a certain destination and the computer works it backwards to see if you are still on schedule or not. should explain it in your owner's manual.

i don't believe the 2004 models are ready for bluetooth. i have a 2004, have the button on my steering wheel, have the mic by the sunroof, but i don't believe i have the bluetooth "brains" in the vehicle. give a BMW dealer a call and provide them with the last 7 digits of your VIN and they should be able to tell you if you are fully wired for bluetooth or what is missing to make it complete.
