    I just found out that the Treo would load the Address book into the MINI Bluetooth module every time it was connected to the cars Bluetooth. Over time this will kill the Bluetooth module.

    I wonder if we are in for the same problem with the Pre.

    Anyone sync your Pre up with a MINI Bluetooth system?

    How many phone numbers did it transfer?

    The Treo would only transfer the phone numbers associated with shortcuts.

    Is the Pre doing the same thing?

    Update this problem does not affect the BMW, just the MINI.

    i have synced my pre with a BMW, and it transferred over all contacts that have phone numbers, including duplicates from facebook and gmail, which are synergized on the phone (slightly annoying).

    I don't know if the contacts are transferred every time.

    I did nothing special, they transferred over all by themselves.

    I don't know how many contacts transferred over, I didn't look

    I had my Bluetooth module die on my Mini. Turns out that PalmOS Treos reload the contacts every time they connect. Eventually the Mini Bluetooth module dies and can't be fixed.

    Mine died just before I got my Pre. Had it replaced under warranty. Apparently there were several failures - took a while to get the backordered part.

    I've read that the Mini Bluetooth module can only handle about 1000 contacts. That seems about right. Mine choked about in the "R"s.

    I need to clean out obsolete address book entries. I've read that deleting address book entries on your phone does not necessarily delete them in the Mini.

    Ah, how simple it is using standards like Bluetooth :>

    well now, I was driving around yesterday, and tried to use my contact list in my car, and now it says the phonebook is empty, even though it was not empty only a few days ago. I don't know why this happened, but I will give it a few mroe days and see if it shows up...

    Not sure if you have seen this. The PDF lists the BMW models that are compatible with the Pre including date of manufacturing.

    I just tested on a 09 M3 covertable and OS 1.1 worked perfectly.

    Thank you
