Just bought an 09 (58 plate) a3 Tdi 170 Quattro SE, with a Chorus 11+ stereo, A3 is fantastic but wanted to fit bluetooth phone and ipod/iphone connectivity.
I don't really want to go to expense of upgrading to RNS e and AMI. I have been looking at the Fiscon basic and Dension 5, does anybody have any experience with them? or any other options?
Ideally I want to be able to use the steering wheel controls to access phonebook on iphone and make and receive calls (does Fiscon do this? or can it just access call list?) and ideally access ipod/iphone music information such as artist album etc and chose music that way, not just via playlists which seems to be the case with AMI
I think Fiscon can do the phone side pretty well, but uses bluetooth connectivity to play music and you have to use iphone to select tracks, artists etc? and bluetooth quality is not as good as cabled connectivity, I believe the Dension 5 can do everything (via display on dash, not stereo) but think its reliability is suspect?
I also believe you need to get car recoded for both? not sure what this entails and costs either?
Would really appreciate peoples advice before I take the plunge, and apologies for so many questions.
Many thanks in advance
