I'm hoping to find a way to use my iPhone 6SPlus with the existing system in my 2006 XJ8.

I called Jaguar customer service and they said that the Jaguar Voice phone/[COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]bluetooth[/COLOR][/COLOR] option is only compatible up to iPhone 4.

Is there a way I can upgrade it? I don't want to have to plug anything into my cigarette lighter, and I would like to be able to just use the voice button on the steering wheel.

It pairs up so fast that all I do when I get a new phone go into Bluetooth settings on my phone and it finds the Jaguar car instantly and then I put in the 4 digit code and its paired. No more of that messing around trying to make it work. I did that last year and it holds as many phones as you can connect to it. I have a IPhone 6S and my wife has a Galaxy 7 Edge and they are instant hook ups. Find a wrecked car and buy the module out of it. Trust me its worth the effort.

Is this the module you were talking about? Newer Factory Jaguar Bluetooth Phone Module Kit for s Type x Type XJ8 XJR VDP | eBay

Someone wanted a picture. What you are looking at is the rack unscrewed and up ended so you can see the back.

On the bottom is the Bluetooth module, next one up VACM( Voice Activated Control Module), next two are NAV and CD changer.

All power connections were already there, just taped flat against the harness.

I was wired for ICE ( In Car Entertainment) and that was simply looped with a short fiber optic cable. All the fiber optic cables were marked with yellow tags.

This is an "old" view as I have since replaced the kluged cable antennae with a BMW antennae that was mentioned in this forum.

I would be most appreciative if you could tell me how to pair my iPhone 6S plus with my 2006 jaguar XJ8. I tried looking in my manuals and couldn't find anything. Thank you so much!

You can also download your phone book from your smartphone into your car's phone directory. Let me know if you need help on how to do these 2 things.

I have done this - with the help from many others' posts - in my 2000 XKR.

I used this eBay item: 182404216360

My present 04 xj8 seems to have newer setup for pairing with any external phone via Bluetooth. Are these two completely different systems for talking on a phone in a jaguar? If I took pictures of rear chamber of my car and its empty wiring plugs, will that help determine what exact box I need? If I push a phone command button now, screen says PHONE NOT FITTED same as the 02 screen would say. If someone who has a working factory Bluetooth system with nav screen and cd changer in boot would post image of their rear chamber with the connectors showing, that would help me a lot before I spend money on a box that might not work in my car.
I have the same vehicle, 2004 XJ8 VDP w/ nav and the cd changer in the trunk..... i would love to know if you ended up with a working Bluetooth system that allows the use of the steering wheel controls and factory speakers with the latest iPhones

How can I get bluetooth streaming for music in my 2004 Vanden Plas with Alpine radio? I heard some cars you can tap into the CD changer in the rear. Worst case I want to at least have the AUX jack so I can listen to music in the car. Thanks.
