    How does the Bluetooth work on the new A3, phone wise

    I have a IPhone 4S

    I understand it links with the car via Bluetooth but does the car have a microphone somewhere or do you just shout at the phone in its holder lol

    I can't comment on the Audi yet as I'm patiently waiting until the 1st March :D

    But in my current car it works like one big handsfree kit. The speakers play the sound and you talk normally, a microphone by the interior lights picks up everything you say

    I have a 4S too - works flawlessly :)

    There's a directional microphone in the overhead console and the quality is pretty good from what I've been told by people I've spoken to from the car. Incoming sound uses the car's speakers obviously.

    Had a real chuckle about this - not because of the valid question but the thought that went through my mind about shouting at the telephone...

    Trigger Happy TV anyone? HELLO???

    Does no one here own anything that isn't Apple?

    We have 2 Samsung phones paired to the car, however it only pairs to one of them, the phone that was last paired takes priority. So if I last used the car my phone would be paired. If my wife and I went to the car my phone would be paired still, but if just my wife went to the car hers would pair and would take priority if we both went to the car together afterwards. This can be easily overriden.

    Out of interest, does which key you use affect the priority?

    It does it automatically. Once you have paired the phones whoever gets to the car first by about 10 seconds whist it registers gets the full bluetooth experiance. To overide it you enter the phone section in the mmi and highlight the phone you wish to use connected to the system. I was impressed when the car developed a fault and the repair man arrived, before getting to the car and whilst opening his computer he told me my phone needed charging. Since then a message to that effect appears.
