I use a Motorola Bluetooth® Hands-Free Speaker T305 which clips to my visor in my cx-7. I don't talk much on the phone in my car so this $79 item works just fine for me. It holds a charge real long (recharge it every 2 weeks or so). As nice as it would be to have integrated bluetooth.........it was not a big issue for me.
#6 of 14 Planning to install Parrot Bluetooth Hands Free

The hard part is figuring out how to remove the plastic bezel from the center console. Does anyone know how this is done?
From what I've learned once the plastic cover is removed you just remove the radio using a universal DIN tool (two wire U's $4 at parts store). To interface with the Bose radio it takes a $150 cable and harness from Quick Connect Products and the Parrot 3200 LS unit $150 - $200 from there it's just plug and play.
I bought the 2008 CX7 workshop manual, but it didn't have anything on removing the cover. Does anyone know which manual does, they manuals are ~ $100 each.
Thanks in advance

That's not how you take it out at all, you need to pry open the bezel and then it's just four screws that hold it in.

Looking for Bluetooth? I do believe the 09 CX-7 will have Bluetooth as an option.

Any updates for this? I am in Canada and have a 2007 CX-7 with navigation, but from what I am seeing on the post boards, I will not have any luck operating throught this. Sounds like best bet is an after market handsfree completely independant of the nav system. Not interested in the large fine for not being hands free for driving, but can not help think this is a large oversight for a high ticket vehicle

I'm sorry to say that the factory head unit in the 2008 (and earlier) CX-7 is not compatable with bluetooth. The factory head unit does not have the reciever to accept the bluetooth signal. My understanding is that the 2009 CX-7 has the same unit as the CX-9 and now has bluetooth capabilities.
#11 of 14 Can I sync an IPOD on my bluetooth
Mar 14, 2010 (7:07 am)
I just leased a 2010 Sport CX7 and love it. The dealer said it had a 6 CD changer/player in it. However, I found out later it did not. I do not own an IPOD or MP3 player yet so am wondering if I get one, will I be able to sync it with the Bluetooth in my car. As silly as this is, I love the 6 CD changer as I have a special needs daughter who loves to listen to various music. It is awkward to change out CD's. Any thoughts or help on this would be greatly appreciated. My sister has a Mazda 3 and my nephew was looking for a way to hook up an IPOD and the only thing we can figure out is through the bluetooth.
#12 of 14 Mazda CX 7 Bluetooth Issues
Feb 05, 2012 (4:40 pm)
I just bought a 2010 CX 7 Touring with bluetooth phone and audio device compability. I immediately connected my phone and everytime I got in the car, it found my phone and automatically turned my MP3 within my phone on. A couple of times, I had to reset and pair it again until a week ago I couldn't. Then I went to work angry because I couldn't make calls. It's been almost 2 weeks and I can't pair my phone with my car. Before taking to the dealership I tried my friend's phone which worked. Then I called T-Mobile and they suggested an upgrade on my phone's baseband version from A6 to B5. Then I was able to connect it with my computer but I still cannot connect with the Mazda. Has anyone out there with similar problem? I want to find out if the problem is with the phone or the car...

This might help you:
Dealer might fix it for free. Hope it helps.
#14 of 14 No BEEP after "PHONE" pushed?
Mar 16, 2013 (2:49 pm)
I bought a used 2010 Mazda w/NAV a couple of months ago and programmed the Bluetooth to work with my iPhone 4S. Have used it several times - love it! However, this morning for some reason I pressed the PHONE button to answer an incoming call, and the caller could hear me, but I could not hear the caller (found this out later - it was my husband). I tried making a call out, and when I pressed the PHONE button, it was dead silent - but the NAV screen said "LISTENING", and then said "HELP". I checked to see if it was still linked, and it was. I tried turning the car off and then on again - no change. It was almost like the speaker quit working or something. The reason I am asking this question on the forum before I take the car into the shop is that this car has an awful lot of "bells and whistles" compared to the car that I drove for the 10 years prior to buying this one, so I am wondering if I accidentally turned some knob or flipped some lever that disabled the Nav/handsfree speaker. Is this problem familiar to anyone? If not, I'll take it in to the dealer and get it fixed.
