    New A3 owner advice please....

    hi guys purchased an a3 sportback on a 56 with symphony 2 bose setup, controls on wheel & no phone cradle in the phone holder. i run a ipod classic atm whats the best way of connecting to it, ive heard of a denison unit, your thoughts? also if upgrade my htc phone to iphone & buy the 100 quid cradle can i play music through the stereo whilst having the phone on bluetooth and charging thus killing 3 birds with one stone?? how do i connect my current htc to the car, when i press the control on the steering wheel it just says connect to cradle??? i heard it should just detect it or am i confusing ami with mmi?? cheers in advance you v.clever lot

    Well the A3 with symphony has neither AMI or MMI.

    You can pair the HTC with the car for bluetooth, put the key in the ignition and turn to 2 position, use your phone to search for the car's bluetooth. You should find AudiUHVxxxx and the passcode is 1234

    As for a cradle, well the Audi systems do not supports music over bluetooth in the current A3.

    Get a Dension gateway 100 CAN fitted for your Ipod music and you can use that charge your Iphone and play music in the future.

    You will have bluetooth with or without a cradle.
