I currently own a 2005 A6. MMI version 07.5.0 0439; navigation was updated with the 2012 DVD refresh. I have built in Bluetooth in the MMI, but as I understand it, that is solely for making calls.
The previous owner installed this Dension Gateway 500
in the glove box. Present is a 30-pin iPod connection, USB, and the little black box.
I tried using hooking up this 30 pin bluetooth adapter
in the glove box, however, it did not work. iPhone connected to it fine, but no output to audio system.
The USB input works for thumb drives with audio on it, but that looks like it. I tried plugging in my phone to the USB to see what would happen, but all I got was a continue charging--disconnected--charging loop.
Any functioning solutions to getting BT audio streaming to work? Any known 30-pin dongles that work with the car/MMI?
Thanks for any help!
Hi Geglamash and welcome to the forum.
Here are my thoughts on your ask. First your MMI s/w is ancient. The latest ver is 46.1.0! Also, the latest nav DVD is 2014...so get updated
As for the BT streaming ask. I too have the Dension 500 and am evaluating getting the following http://www.viseeostore.com/products/...r-wma1000.html
if you do a search for this type of A2DP adapter, it's supposed to work with the Dension system and actually be able to stream audio (music) vs. calls only.
Let us know how it works out.
