As soon as I collect all cables and wires I will start Parrot CK 3000 install for RNS-E. Does anyone else have this module?



I would be also interested in anything that works with RNS-E TEL directory.

Just found some additional info:

Audi hits the road with Bluetooth onboard
Car maker Audi will be using CSR's BlueCore technology to bring Bluetooth to the road with the world's first car to be offered with a GSM car phone and cordless handset both Bluetooth-enabled.

Editor's note: Readers of the free Electronicstalk weekly email newsletter will have read this news the week it was announced. Click here to request to be added to the circulation.
Car maker Audi will be using CSR's BlueCore technology to bring Bluetooth to the road with the world's first car to be offered with a GSM car phone and cordless handset both Bluetooth-enabled.
The Bluetooth equipped Audi models are rolled out throughout countries supporting the GSM network in Europe and Asia starting this month.
The Audi Bluetooth enabled telematics control unit (TCU) combines an embedded GSM module and an embedded Bluetooth module with a powerful CPU.
It is connected to the multi-media-interface (MMI) through an optical MOST Bus system.
The system is also equipped with an in-car rechargeable cordless Bluetooth handset which allows the passengers to place and accept calls directly through the TCU Bluetooth link.
The user is thus able to place calls over the Bluetooth handset and to transfer that call to the Bluetooth enabled hands-free phone system in the Audi.
One of the eagerly awaited benefits of Bluetooth, possible with this system, is the ability to also connect a Bluetooth-enabled portable PC or PDA to exchange emails and surf the Internet via a cellular system while connected through the TCU.
Bluetooth in-car hands-free kits are likely to play a key role as hands-free operation of mobiles becomes preferable, and increasingly, legally required in the near future.
Industry experts estimate that up to 70% of all mobile phone calls are made from cars.
Bluetooth hands-free systems provide a safe, convenient alternative and are set to become the first killer app for automotive Bluetooth.
Audi identified the benefits of Bluetooth and took the step of integrating the wireless technology into its vehicles ahead of the competition.
Ken Noblitt, Business Development Director for Mobile Phones and Automotive applications in the USA at CSR added: "To match Audi's stringent quality, reliability and interoperability requirements, the Bluetooth equipment had to be guaranteed to withstand Audi's in-cabin automotive requirements".
Noblitt continued, "At this time, only CSR's BlueCore offers such a guarantee to operate or exceed the necessary range of -40 to +105C for in-cabin electronics systems.
Automakers and automotive tier one suppliers can not afford to rely on anything less".
CSR provides everything necessary to assist automotive designers in developing a fully featured Bluetooth hands-free system, including a reference design, circuit descriptions, a complete BOM and all software (including the embedded Bluetooth stack).
The hands-free profile runs in external Flash memory but the circuit design may be easily converted to a ROM-based single chip solution.
CSR is the only automotive grade Bluetooth solution available which can run the complete Bluetooth protocol stack and application software on-chip, without the need for an optional external microprocessor.
CSR's mature, single-chip automotive Bluetooth device is also produced under very stringent QS-9000 and PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) automotive requirements and is available in a 0.8mm pitch package for low cost printed circuit board construction.
In the future, CSR will make available implementations of new automotive profiles for vehicle diagnostics, streaming video and MP3 file streaming for multitmedia and info-entertainment.
CSR will also work towards further extending the guaranteed temperature range of BlueCore2-External and future products.

I have the CK3300 installed, very similar, but it has the LCD display. It works with my old D navi and the new RNS-E.

It does not display anything on the RNS-E, it only mutes the radio whilst making calls.

I'm getting ready to do the same type of install. I just ordered the Audi telephone install kit for my B5 A4.

The only reason I ordered it was because I want to mount a proper holder in the car.

I have a Motorola V710 with Bluetooth. There is a cradle available with an external antenna adapter. I'm going to disable everything in the cradle except the antenna adapter and the charging. That way the phone will still charge but work with the Bluetooth. Since the 2000 A4 comes pre-wired for a phone I have an outlet in arm rest already. I'll use it to power the cradle.

I'll adapt the Audi center consol phone holder to hold the new cradle and mount the rest of the kit in the trunk where the factory phone harness is. I can get the car speaker mic and all the power from there. (Yes I have put a little thought in to this)

The only thing left to do will be to mount the LCD from the KIT and I won't know what I doing there until I get it so I can see the size and so forth. If it's small enough I may rig it up into the cup holder so I can make it invisible if I want.....

Anyways If you get yours in fist which you probably will let me know how it works out for you.

Here are a couple of links from Audiworld on installs of regular kits.

To be honest Phone system start to work without any mods. I just plug the cables and it's working.

Doesn't show phone on the display but I was suspecting that.
I think I would need OEM Audi bluetooth system to get it to work with RNS-E interface. But I think I can live without this little green phone icon :D lol

Still haven't got around to doing mine. More than a few items to get in place. I'm having to modify the phone cradle to fit properly on the Audi mount in the center consol. Now since the only cradel for my phone is for an in car kit I have to modify that as well. I want to use the antenna input and charge the phone. Beyond that, there is no use for the additional functunality of the hang up cup.

I will post once I finish and let everyone know all the little things I did to intergrate it.

OEM Audi Bluetooth part number?

All I want is to use my bluetooth phone (motorola V600) and used the US RNS-E to dial from and it's mic and speakers. I don't need a cradle to charge or hold the phone. Mainly I want the integration of my bluetooth phone with the RNS-E display and sound.

Has anyone installed the OEM audi bluetooth module with the RNS-E nav? Do you know the part number?

Thanks
Paul

There is a post about it here with part #s etc.

http://www.navplus.us/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83

Parrot works with RNS-E pretty well but I doubt that you will be able to dial directly from NAME directory bacuse this is OEM kit function provided via additional wires (probably EXT control Connector).

Since I have my Parrot connected and working, I will check VAG code settings for TEL line and see if PHONE icon will pop up when call is made.

STG 17 (Instrument cluster) -> Adaptation -> Function 10 -> Channel 62
+01 - Radio
+02 - Telefon
+04 - Navigation
+08 - Telematics

STG 56 (Navigation System) -> Coding -> Function 07
0xxx?xx: Telephone/Telematics
1 - no phone
5 - Telematics Europe
6 - Telematics US

I have just had a parrot kit installed in my a4 2.0tFSI QUATTRO S Line but the mut function on the RNS-E has not been enabled therefore when the handfree kit recieves a call there is not audio.
I know someone with VAG.com and has offered to help but he needs the code, do you know what the code is or how i can get it?

Has the MUTE signal been connected from the HF to pin 11 of connector D on the RNS-E
And the audio from the HF connected to pins 6 & 12 of connector C?

Make/check those connections first.
