Hello. I am planning on installing the new Navi+ in my 2004.5 A4(B6). My car came equipted with the Audi Telematics system which included pre-wiring for connecting to an Motorolla V60c mobile phone (for hands free integration with the Bose radio) and OnStar (which is also hands free.) The entire system is useless to me because i have a newer phone and i don;t want to pay for Onstar.

But i was wondering if it i can use any of the equiptment in my car to enable Bluetooth with Navi+? I already have a telemetics unit (shoudl i check the model #?) and I have a mic located in the interior light cluster (in front of the sunroof.)

Any thoughts? anyone try messing this this yet?
Thanks, -gregtay

A lot of people got it installed already ;)

Mostlikely you will need new Telephone interface with Bluetooth. Also wiring for new interface will be different. Not sure about mic ...it is very possible that you could keep existing one.

So far nobody has reported that he did the retrofit. I'm going to try this upgrade in the near future. The OnStar Telematics interface sits in the same location as the BT phone interface, the microphone is the same as well and all the required signals are already available at the Telematics interface. The only issue is that the interface is located under the passenger seat and it kind of tricky to get to.

There are a couple of questions left, one being whether or not the 42 pin connector at the Telematics interface is using the same pins as the 54 pin connector at the BT phone interface. If I can't find the answer in advance I will remove the passenger seat and see myself what pins are used.

The other question is whether or not the connector for the V60 cradle can be used/modified to a 2006 cradle (in my case a Treo 650 cradle). I know nobody understands the reason for a cradle when BT is used but for me (or better my Treo) getting charged while in the car is a nice feature. And using the GSM sharkfin antenna will likely improve reception. But this will be the second part of this project, the interface is a pre-requisite first.

Thanks for the info and let me know if you discover anything. I haven't installed a nav yet.. so i am just in the begining of my project, but i will share anything i find. Would be nice to actually put part of the telemetics package to use.:)
