    Audi connect question

    Hi


    I write from Italy and I congratulate you for the wonderful forum

    I'm going to order an A3 sportback 1.8 TFSI Quattro Stronic and I wanted to put the optional Audi connect, but the dealership did not seem very safe and the responses they give me.
    I ask those who have the 'it ..... but you can also call putting a sim that over the data service also works as a phone?
    Today I own an A4 TFSI Quattro Av Stronic and putting in the MMI navigation plus a second sim, it becomes a car phone in all respects without bluetooht and using the external antennza, improving the signal and resetting the electromagnetic waves inside the cockpit.

    As an alternative to the A3 c 'is the audi phone box ... that is connected to an external antenna via planar should simulate what I just described. (Less Sar and best signal) for 700 € ... but honestly I do not understand much utility except that the reduction Sar.

    thanks

    You cannot order the Audi phone box with Connect, at least not in the UK. Pretty sure it would be the same everywhere though.

    I'd be happy if I can connect with audi call from sim
    If so I do not need bluetooth connection for phone calls.
    But with Audi connect, the sim has an external antenna for phone calls?

    Yes, there's an external antenna. It can use the SIM in the glove box, or your phone through the bluetooth remote sim access protocol (RSAP), which essentially does the same thing but with the sim in your phone instead.

    i'm sure I read that too, apparently LTE was introduced in Italy in late 2012 (according to google at least) so one would assume that The Italian version of Audi Connect is LTE compatible as a matter of course, might be worth checking though.

    Hi Cemerson

    So it works as a car phone in my A4 TFSI, just have a second Sim card that supports both 3g/4g and voice telephony.
    At this point, you no longer need the 'AUDI PHONE BOX P to have less radiation Sar.
    Right?

    The phone box's main purpose is to boost the signal by using the car's external aerial. If you use the SIM card in the car (or RSAP over bluetooth - although not available any more it seems) it'll do that anyway.

    Cemerson I thank you and I go to Audi to make me confirm what you said, since according to the Italian audi audi connect you can not call. I'm confused.
