For 451, other than the factory Bosch highline radio with navigation, are there other options for hands free Bluetooth phone connectivity for the 451? I've seen pictures of the elusive Bluetooth dash pods, but I haven't seen them for sale and I don't think the Bluetooth pod will work with Electric Drive 451.

I have the 2013 451 with the highline radio. Even though I much prefer tactile buttons for basic radio functions, I do like the seamless bluetooth connection. When the radio is on, it will automatically pair with my phone via bluetooth.

I noticed it's quite hard to find a 2014 and newer 451 with highline radio. If I were to buy a newer 451, can I remove the highline radio from my 2013 451 and install it on a 2015 451?

Not sure about that. I haven’t pulled my high line radio on my 2013. I believe you’d also need to pull the gps antenna as well as the microphone. Might be cheaper/easier just to replace with an aftermarket unit.

I went for a JVC unit with CarPlay for my electric drive.
