2006 A6Hi All,
Checking to see if anyone got the iPhone to work with Audi A4 (mine's 2006) to work with bluetooth? I'm having problems.
I had to screw with mine a bit to do this the first time. Try shutting BT off on the phone, powering up the car (after it has been off for five minutes - I think the car is only discoverable for the first bit of time after it's been turned on) then turning BT on, and watching for the Audi. Worked for me.I'm having trouble getting my iPhone to even find the BT connection in my 2007 Q7 (just keeps searching). Anyone else having this problem?
Woo Hoo! Worked! - Thanks for the tip.I had to screw with mine a bit to do this the first time. Try shutting BT off on the phone, powering up the car (after it has been off for five minutes - I think the car is only discoverable for the first bit of time after it's been turned on) then turning BT on, and watching for the Audi. Worked for me.
As far as the larger problem, how is this nonsense possible? Did Apple not beta test any of this?
I got the car charger for iPhone from ExtremeMac and don't have this problem. I plug in the FM transmitter (in headphone jack), charger and then start the car and it all works.One more data point on this: it seems that if I plug my iPhone in before I put the key in and start the car, I don't get a Bluetooth connection. I have to wait until the car is on and the Bluetooth gets recognized, then plug the iPhone into my car charger, then all is fine.
I think it has improved mine as well. will take a few more days to be sure but it seems better than it was on my 2006 A6OK - I haven't tried it too many times yet, but I think that the new update has fixed all of my Audi-BlueTooth issues.
I was having all kinds of issues and I kept having to turn BT off and on, and change passwords, etc. But now it's been just fine, with or without being plugged in while I'm driving.
I've got my fingers crossed.
Mine also came from the Apple address book.Are you doing anything special? All I see on that screen are the directory assistance, PayBills etc. Do you think it has to do with how you downloaded the contacts? Mine went through the Apple address book. What about you?
Thanks for the continued help....I checked my phone and all my contacts have numbers. I even tried adding contacts with only numbers. Saving them differently every time as main / mobile / home. They still don't come up. I have an 2005 Audi A6. I was able to get my Palm treo to work, but so far no luck with the iPhone. Any more advise?Mine also came from the Apple address book.
As I recall, entries from the address book that did not have a phone number (or a number in the right place) do not appear on the Audi screen.
so, for example, address book items that are there only for street addresses, email addresses, etc. do not show up.
otherwise, the items that have a phone number show up and I can dial them, etc.
