I haven't heard that one before. FWIW, my 530iT has a dealer-installed K40 radar detector. I've been using my dinky little portable cell phone in the car for 18 months with no problem (after removing the useless factory analog-only cell phone).

Hope this helps,

I just bought a 1995 525IT and see in the handbook that I am not supposed to use a portable cell phone, or a radar detector. Is it true that using either one could damage anything electronic in the car? I have a friend who uses both in his & hasn';t noticed any problems.
I'm sure this has come up before on the forum, but I can't find it & I am new at this.
