    [iPhone Users] Anyone updated to iOS 7.1 (Bluetooth Question)

    Has anyone updated their iPhone to iOS7.1?

    Theres a feature there that I have been looking for, for a long time in my A3... its something called HFP (Hands Free Profile).
    What is HFP you ask? It allows the phone to dicatate the directions through the A3 even when the phone is connected just as a handsfree device (not audio player).
    So theoretically you could be playing the radio or listening to music via the SD card and then if you have your iPhone navigating you somewhere (only with Apple Maps though) it will dictate the directions through the AMI system going back and forth between music and the voiceover.

    The reason I ask is because I've always had issues upgrading to newer versions, so I would rather verify the function works on the A3 before I upgrade the fw.

    Updated to 7.1. This feature works as described - what's weird is when active it shows the phone icon with your own name displayed ,but only while it dictates. The rest of the time the mmi display is as normal, which is sort of disappointing as there is no way of knowing if the feature is working or not .

    Press the speaker icon on the bottoms right side of the screen.
    Be aware it'll only be displayed when connected to a Bluetooth hands free.

    Maybe it could be that applications never supported it? I've been using iPhones for years in various cars.. Never seen it before

    My iPhone has done this since I had the iPhone 4. I'm pretty sure if you didn't have HFP you wouldn't be getting bluetooth connectivity even for calls in any car. Normally when connecting you get two for: Hands Free Profile and Audio Source Profile.

    The usual one is Headset profile actually, rather than Hands Free.
