Audi A4 Bluetooth Questions
Three days after I drove the car out of the showroom, I was told by the salesperson that the Bluetooth only worked with certain phones--a short list of about six phones. One phone on Audi's approved list--which I was shown only after I leased the car--was a Motorola Razr. I called Audi HQ and complained about the problem but was told that nothing could be done.
Last week, I upgraded my phone to the new Razr Maxx. This phone synchs up most of the time with the Audi, but not always. This is atrocious.
A $55,000 luxury car should have Bluetooth compatibility. Bluetooth 1.2 and 2.0 is a standard for headphones, headsets, computers and all kinds of devices. There is no excuse for Audi not to make this work right.
I'll call Audi next week and report back here on the company's response. In the meantime, if anyone else in the group is experiencing similar issues, please post here.
Audi should have told me BEFORE I leased the car that its Bluetooth wouldn't work with too many phones and that I would need to buy an outdated phone to make it work. Audi should also fix the problem if it is as widespread as I suspect.
By the way, both of these phones synch up with my wife's 2007 Mercedes E350.
