BMW NAV 5 question

I do not use a headset or any communication gear. I do, however, want my NAV 5 to flash/display if someone is calling. Is there a way for it to do that. I link my iphone via bluetooth. I know I cannot answer the call, I just want the heads up someone is calling so I can pull over if I want to.

No Headset paired = No Phone support.

You might have placed this in one of the two NAV5 threads.

Thanks, and sorry for not using the NAV 5 threads. If you linked a cheap bluetooth ear piece and just kept it in the tank bag, would the call be displayed?

Yes. Just make sure that the device supports HFP and/or HSP.

I know on my Zumo 660 I can pair the phone to the Zumo, no need for the headset. So it would ring through the Zumo 660 and show that a call is coming in. Can this not be done with the Nav 5?

I bought a 10 dollar bluetooth headset at Walmart. It pairs with the NAV 5 which pairs with the phone. Keep the headset in my tank bag. Now when anyone calls I can see it flash on the screen. Works fine now.
