I think this is where the standard Audi bluetooth phone thingy should go.
Phone cradle like this AUDI genuine phone holder for Nokia 6230/6230i | eBay
There are limited number cradles that Audi supports, I'm sure there is a list somewhere if I find it I'll post it up.
£5 for the cradle and about £20 for the phone. I'll be happy with that to fill it up.
I'll take a look for that list.
Be interesting to see what options I have.
Audi In Car Entertainment - Phone Cradles - Stoke Audi Parts
Going by this link, I got a Gen II phone prep.
Audi Nokia Phone Cradle - Stoke Audi Parts
Which is good to know.
Just need to work out what cradles I can get and what phones I can get.
I'm not really looking to have a 2nd phone for making calls but something to fill the gap................I wonder if it could play music.
I like this.
Genuine Audi Bluetooth Remote SIM Access Profile Adaptr | eBay
That would work if you wanted rsap, that module is no longer in production guess it was not very popular!
I believe gen 1 was the old Motorola phone prep.
That holder only gives 2 advantages, the first is it charges the phone the second is it uses the cars amplified aerial so you should get a better signal.
The Audi bluetooth system you have will not stream music off any phone.
Just been reading up on that.
That's a shame.
I wonder if the Audi phones you see on ebay still work?
I guess they do if you can find the correct cradle?
I believe they are for the Motorola phone prep only, don't believe they will work with the GEN2/3 BT units.
That Motorola phone prep is the one that goes in the arm rest.
Might keep my eyes open for RSAP cheap.
Unless I win the nokia one for a pound. lol
I think I need a new centre bit.
New centre bit?
The big below the arm rest.
To fit that better looking Audi phone. They use a different cradle (obviously).
Ive not been able to find one yet.
To fit that better looking Audi phone you have to rip out the GEN 2 BT module and fit the Motorola phone prep, never seen that done before, I'm sure you can but its a bit of a downgrade.
Here is the Motorola module you will also need. #7262 Audi A8 D3 2005 Motorola Phone Control Module ECU 4E0862333 | eBay, I think you can buy the harness for kufatec.
Little gain if you downgrade to the motorola!
I only want something to fill the gap that's own and looks better.
Rather spend the time and money on a solar roof.
If I were you i would just fiberglass something for that gap like a mobile phone holder or coin holder etc and get dension bluetooth that will stream music and phone.
In fact I would even consider just taking it out and line the bottom to fill the holes.
In mine I had the controls for my Bit 1 processor remote but I moved that to my front ashtray and hard wired in a lead to charge my mobile whilst i'm driving. i piggy bagked it off the cigarette lighter and the lead comes through to where your cradle should be. When I'm drivnig i put my phone there under the arm rest charging.
Chatting to my dad about mobiles and what I'm trying to do, he said he has two 6020/6021 phones in a box not doing anything that I can have.
I went on ebay and picked up a 6020/6021 cradle for the car.
Just got to wait on the phone now.
Going to take the bin out and give it a proper clean.
