How to Sync Your Phone with the Bluetooth in a Mercedes Car

By Neil Edwards

Bluetooth compatibility is an option on many luxury cars, including several Mercedes-Benz models. An integrated Bluetooth module provides hands-free communication without the need for a wireless headset or speaker, and uses the car's speaker system to ensure that calls placed in the car are loud and clear. Models with stereo controls on the steering wheel allow users to control their phones without taking their hands off the wheel.
