I'm a little confused about the Bluetooth interface part numbers:

8E0 862 335 <MY 2005.5 A4 (US) - no BT
8P0 862 335 <MY 2004 A3 - Basic functionality only
8P0 862 335 A MY 2004 A3/A4 - Basic functionality only
8P0 862 335 D MY 2005 A4 >8E-5-533 000 - Basic functionality only
8P0 862 335 E MY 2005 A4 8E-5-533 001>>8E-5-600 000 - Basic functionality only
8P0 862 335 C MY 2006 A4 8E-6-000 001/8E-6-800 001>>
8P0 862 335 B MY 2006 A3/A4 (US)
8P0 862 335 F MY 2006.5 A3/A4 (Europe)
8P0 862 335 G MY 2006.5 A4 (US)
8P0 862 335 H MY 2007 (Europe)
8P0 862 335 J MY 2007 A4 (US)
8P0 862 335 M MY 2007.5 (Europe)
I am about to install RNS-E (4B0 035 192 P) into the B5, i'm in Europe.

Is it the case that the Bluetooth interface 8P0 862 335 M would be the *best* one for me to get as it's the latest, or is the *C* version just as good for example?

What is meant by 'Basic functionality only' on the earlier models?

Thanks, sorry if this has been covered before, I searched ut couldn't find the answer I needed.

I'm not sure the bluetooth module will work in a B5 as I believe it requires can bus communication with the instrument cluster which the B5 does not have.

yes it works in the b5 if you have a later car with digital clock in the dash insert.

these ones have can-bus

sorry i cant answer about the bluetooth module though - i fitted a C unit to my 2001 b5

:) I have the digital clock (facelift model).

From further reading it seems that the later the model the later the phones it may /may not support.

Weird that Audi didn't create some interface to upgrade the firmware!

Dunk,

do you get 'full' functionality (phonebook etc) with your model?
Where did you install the bluetooth interface?

Cheers, Rich

Bizarrely, the newest EU Bluetooth interface is actually the H, not the M!!!

If you want to be able to control your phone from your RNS-E and swap calls lists and stored numbers "extended functionality" then you should get a C, F, H or M version.

Thanks for the tip!

So would I be right in saying that the C, F, H or M versions are EQUALLY as good? As in no advantage going for the 'H' as opposed to the 'C' for example?

I've been quoted £203.63 + VAT for a brand new model, either 'M' or 'H' and the part numbers list M as being 2007.5.

The part number list here is wrong. The "H" version IS the newest, it replaced the "M" version last year.

When trying to decide, consider this: Audi would not have changed the part number suffix unless something changed inside the module. The thing that changes is the software and if you get the newest module then you also get the newest software. There is no way to "update" the software inside the bluetooth module. What you buy is what you get.

Thanks.

So 'H' is the 'best' one to get I take it?
If "best" for you is "most recent software version" then yes. For me the "best" would definitely be H.

Thanks, guess I'm still confused of the difference.

Mainly does the latter version support more phones?

So many questions!

i used the C version with the rns-e in my 2001 b5

i get full functionality depending on the phone model - i used
a variety of smartphones and currently have a SE800i which
works fully

i put the bluetooth module under the passenger seat and ran the wiring under the
edge of the central console back to the rns-e

i have the canbus clock module by the relays below the steering wheel

i dont know but presume that later modules after my C may have more
or different phone support or more likely the hardware was made to
the same spec but by a different manufacturer

some things have changed in the software over the various revisions. One example is how the newer modules will remember contact lists from phones after the first pairing. Then on subsequent pairings, the phone and the car will do a short "handshake" and the car will just pop up the contact list and make it available. This is in contrast to the old way which required the bluetooth module to download the contact list everytime you turned the car on. This is a small change but it does save a few minutes of "pairing" time during startup.

Also, part numbers do not change with different manufacturers. I have seen "J" and "H" version bluetooth modules made by separate companies.
