Alright folks, after numerous emails and posts on the subject I think it's time we try to compile an active list of cell phones which are known to be compatible with the RNS-E & BT Tech Package offered on the various Audi model line vehicles. Please comment on the thread and I will add your phone data to the list in the main post.

Phone: Blackberry 8700

German Driver,

Thanks for this Sticky!

Cingular 3125: Works great
Cingular 8525: Connects to Bluetooth then disconnects, problematic
Cingular Samsung i607 aka "BlackJack": Works only as Blutooth Phone, no Phone Book, Call list, etc., waste of time in my opinion since the car features are not usable!
Treo 650: Favorites only
Motorola Razer: Works very well

Great stuff! I'll be trying out the Treo 750 this evening, but here are my experiences with two other Cingular phones:

Phone: HTC/Cingular 8525
Compatible: No*
Phone Book Directory: No
Received Call Log: No
Missed Call Log: No
Incoming Call Log: No
Outgoing Call Log: No

* As mentioned above, the device actually completes handshake and connects, but disconnects after a few moments. It will inermittently reconnect and disconnect repeatedly thereafter. This is true even with the latest (v1.38?...I can't remember) South African firmware release. The issue has been tracked down to the v2.0 Bluetooth chipset and/or OS driver. It is not a function of the M$ v2 Bluetooth stack as this piece works fine in the Audi in other phones. Namely...

Phone: Samsung i607/Blackjack
Compatible: Yes*
Phone Book Directory: Yes*
Received Call Log: No
Missed Call Log: No
Incoming Call Log: No
Outgoing Call Log: No

From a basic functionality standpoint, this setup rocks. Range is easily 25', which is convenient if you keep the phone on your belt or in your pocket. I get my complete contacts list, but it's a pain to scroll alphabetically, hence the asterisk. The reason I'm trying the Treo 750 is that the battery life on the Blackjack is absolutely abysmal. I'm running the extended battery and am lucky to get 12 hours. Granted, I run bluetooth and OMA constantly, but this wasn't an issue with the 8525.

Update on the Treo 750.
No good. Same exact issue as with the 8525. I'm bummed!

A fully compatible 3G phone - just make sure you don't have any contacts with a phone number of type "Other", if you do the Bluetooth connection will break.

2006 S4 avant and Treo 700w with Verizon

BT connection works sometimes (usually best when the phone is charged). Once connected via BT you can dial and receive calls via the phone. The phone book doesnt work at all. The TREO 700 speed dial settings are recognized by the car but when you select one to dial out the system mutes the music but the phone seems to lock up and wont complete the call.

Sorry to hear... I had the exact same experience with a 750....

When I looked around in the 'net a bit, I found that the Treo 750 is built by HTC who happens to be the manufacturer of the 8525. I had very similar connect / disconnect / reconnect issues with my prior PDA, which was a Siemens SX66 and ALSO built by HTC.

So... maybe HTC devices are just not compatible with the Audi BT setup...

I am, for now, keeping my Treo 650 which really works like a charm with the car's BT.

Interesting - I didn't know that the 750 was an HTC device. So Palm is just slapping their name on it?

I've got my 8525 configured to be 'good enough.' Meaning it connects, disconnects within a minute, and then reconnects within 30 seconds....all automatically. I'd still prefer it to be like my wife's Razr, which just flat out works, no questions asked, but this will do.

FYI - my 8525 works like a charm in her Lexus - no issues whatsoever.

Compatible: Yes
Phone Book Directory: Yes
Received Call Log: No
Missed Call Log: No
Incoming Call Log: No
Outgoing Call Log: No

This combination really works very well for me. My only concern is how long it takes to scroll through my phone book using the scroll button on the steering wheel... but that's due to how many entries I have.

I REALLY like the BlackBerry Pearl as a regular phone / PDA / Email monster. -RIM's BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) isn't real great though, it is not (in my opinion) real push email: I am using the BIS to forward email from my own email server using an IMAP4 connection. BIS won't / can't use the IMAP protocol's native ability to do event-driven email notifications. In stead, BIS polls my server every 15 minutes. To me, that's not real push email.

All in all, the combiation of car and device is very very good though. The Bt connection between car and device has so far been rock solid.

My wife and I each recently aquired Treos with the intention of linking them with our new Audi A3. I was looking for maximum pairing so chose the Cingular 680 (per Audi). She his a loyal Verizon customer (best coverage in our area) and took a chance on a 700P. Here are the results:

Phone: Palm TREO 680 (Cingular)
Compatible: Yes
Phone Book Directory: Favorites and sim only

That's interesting about the 700P - I had the impression it was an identical phone to the 680.
They do look similar. 680 is GSM and is listed on Audi's compatibility chart. The 700P is CDMA and is not listed. IIRC, either Palm or Verizon indicate the 700 series is not compatible with the Audi OEM car kit. Will verify when I get home and check my files tonight. My wife decided to take a chance on the 700p.

You can initiate calls from the phone (as well as from the MMI) and they'll get directed to the MMI.

Well, the saga continues:

I have a Treo 680.

The device itself works great with my A4's Bluetooth.

However:
I also have GoodLink on my Treo, and as part of the security profile of Goodlink, the device locks itself after the regular inactivity timeout. When the keypad is locked, I can't dial using car's BT setup.

Having spent about 1.5 hours on the phone with Cingular and Palm, I now know that a Palm Treo 680 CANNOT be dialed using Bluetooth when the keypad is locked.

That is sooo stupid!!!!! [headbang][headbang]

Are you listening Palm? Why the BLEEP did you design you BLEEP'ing device so BLEEP'ingly stupid!!!!!!

So, If I want to make a hands-free call, I have to get the 680 out of its holster, enter the password to unlock it, and THEN place the call. So: The Treo 680 can't be hands-free with Goodlink. and: Goodlink is not oficially supporting the 680.

Man, comprehensive, widely adopted, robust standards are SO needed in this space!!!!!

* - to make a full sync with the Address Book - you need to have all your contacts added to the CarKit category in addition to their original categories.

Also - if you want to prevent the disconnects you need to disable the power savings features and not have the screen locked. Just let the screen dim but not lock.

My Audi UHV 1675 system automatically reads contacts from my BB8800. Unfortunately, it only reads the first 500 contacts on my BB8800. I tried to have the phone only send a limited number of contacts by having the phone transfer only selected categories of contacts in my address book. I did this by 1) creating a group in Outlook and attaching select contacts to this group and 2) Setting the phone to only transfer the contacts in this group by going into Bluetooth Options on the phone
Unfortunately, this didn't work. When I try to transfer address book from my phone, I get the following message on my phone: "Unable to locate Object Push Server See the manual for your Bluetooth handsfree device."

Any suggestions?

I saw the same limitation when I at one point had sooo many duplicate entries in my BlackBerry Pearl's address book, I think I was over 600. The cutoff was exactly at 500 entries. It could look like it's just the limitation fo the BT kit int he car.....

Okay, I have a couple of phones that I think that I can add some data on here, but I'm a little lost on this. I don't have Nav, just the Symphony II+ with the BT module. How much of this data is applicable? The info in the stereo manual is super limited & I have no BT specific manual.

nwnerd
12-01-2007, 09:43 PM
Well, with no replies I'm going to go ahead & contribute what I can. Keep in mind that I'm Symphony II+, with no nav to test these on. The only 3 things on the list that I can figure applies are the phone, compatibility & phone book.

Phone: Razr V3 (Unicel)
Compatible: Yes
Phone Book: Yes (took a bit to get it to import, but no problems after the initial import)

I hated the Razr, the only good thing about it was how well it worked with the Audi's BT. It never, ever dropped out & that was with about 9 months of steady use. But the layout of the phone & sync software (Motorola Phone Tools) sucked.

Phone: Nokia E62 (Unicel)
Compatible: Yes
Phone Book: No

This phone has a really nice clean layout with great reception, but unfortunately didn't work too well with the Audi. The phone book would never import at all & over the course of about 3-4 days of use I had frequent disconnects with the BT. It was incredibly frustrating to use in the car after so long with the Razr that I had to look for something else. Otherwise I'd still have this phone, it was a joy to use with great software that synced nicely with Outlook.

Phone: HTC S621 (Unicel)
Compatible: Yes
Phone Book: Yes

I just got this phone yesterday & I love it. It has all of the contacts grouped in such a way that each contact has 1 entry in the phone with all of its phone numbers within that entry, but the Audi BT is able to pick them all out & individualize them in the car's phone book. So sweet! (One thing that drove me nuts with the Razr is that I'd have multiple entries for people that had more than one phone number, it makes the list soooooo much longer.) Not only that, but in the car's phone book it has a little notation after each name that denotes what type of phone it is - work, mobile, home, etc. This is something that even the Razr didn't do. (Some phone numbers such as "other" wouldn't import to the phone from Outlook, but if you use something that the phone has an entry for then it will import.) It also seems to be a very solid connection with Audi's BT, which is the icing on the cake. Also, no extra software other than Activesync & it syncs beautifully with Outlook 2003. It took a while to customize Windows Mobile to my liking, but with Facade it's now where I want it. I highly recommend it!

Bump.

I just got a Razr V3xx. It pairs easily and solidly with '06 A4 standard audio system.
The problem is that the phone list does NOT load.
I've tried every method of power up/power down, connect, but nothing has worked.

Audi does list the V3xx as compatible and that it will download the phone book.
Well, it doesn't.

My previous Motorola V551 does connect and does load the phone list and it too was solid. I did have a few occasional BT disconnects, but it was rare.

I also have tired a new Nokia 6085. It too works great. Connects solidly and it loads the phone list.

Voice commands work well with the Moto V551, and RAZR V3xx. I didnt' try the
Nokia 6085 with voice.

I really need to find out why Audi lists the V3xx as being able to download the phone list. I like the V3xx, but I won't keep it if I can't use my Audi's full phone capabilities.

If the V3xx doesn't work out, I'm thinking of getting the BB Pearl, the LG Shine, or the Sony W580i.

Can anyone offer some insight as to what's up with the V3xx?
And, can anyone offer experience about the Shine and/or the W580i?

Thanks.

anyone try a Nokia E51, E61 or E90?

tried e51 with the 2008 model TT with nav (well, it's one of the first ones, was mnfd in 12/2006). my e51 had the 200-series firmware (flashed it to the 300 yesterday, but won't be coming back to my car for another week) -- it paired and always stayed connected just fine, I would see the incoming calls (don't have the caller id feature with my greedy provider) i could dial as well, but i couldn't sync the phone book. read online that some n810-syncing software would help, tried it, but it didn't.

would love to hear if anyone got better results with new 5800 xm.

apologies for the shortcomings of my post, it's done from a nokia internet tablet.

One very annoying issue is that when the BB bluetooth is connected, you lose the ability to voice dial through the phone itself. That is bad. I guess it is expecting to be able to hear your voice thorugh bluetooth, as if you were using a headset. Apparently the Audi system does not send your voice to the phone for this feature to work. Very very disappointing. If this worked it would allow you to simply bypass the "talk" button on the car, and go directly through the phone. Maybe if I have a headset connected at the same time it'll work?

Hello all,

I recently bought a Samsung Omnia and I'm having trouble getting my phonebook/contacts loaded to my car. I have a 2008 Audi Avant and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if there is something I can do to fix it and load my contacts to the car. Everything else works in terms of receiving calls and making calls.

Thanks

Haven't messed around with it too much but I was able to pair mine no problem. Tested with a few phone calls.

After a few more days of use the 9700 (T-Mobile) works with the car but no access to phonebook.

Hi all,

Just to let you know about the issue with all Blackberry's that have the BES (Black Berry Enterprise Server) enabled and setup, this is down to memory allocation and the PUSH settings in the BB vs VAG BT. The VAG BT unit cannot handle the ammount of data that the BB wants to push to it so it allocates what it can, this means that your phone book will be transfered last (and in most cases not at all!).

Happily there is a work around. If you clear all phone logs, dialled numbers, text and email messages your BB will at least transfer your phone book. You will need to do this every time you pair the device though.

I have had so many BB's Pearl, Curve, Bold etc and ALL work fine until you enable the BES system, my tip would be, if you can live wityhout the BES then live without it your VAG BT will work fine.
