    Hi, I need a little audio advice and hope you guys can help.

    I have a Concert II + Bose factory fit stereo in my '09 A3, I also have the MFSW & BT Low prep w\ voice dialing. My iPhone connects to the interface automatically on ignition ..but it doesn't allow for BT Audio (A2DP). I'm considering upgrading the headunit to the RNS-E or a different make entirely, but would prefer a factory unit if the features are rich enough.

    So does the RNS-E allow BT music playback or is it limited to calling functions only, the same as my current system? Also, will my Aerial need upgrading if I go the RNS-E route?

    Thanks.

    You can get A2DP if you get AMI and the optional bluetooth dongle

    You will need the newer 193 model RNSE for AMI though (afaik)

    Thanks for the reply.

    Will the AMI cable plug into a Concert II headunit or is it RNS-E fit? also important, with the BT dongle will I see track\artist info & be able to select tracks\playlists via the headunit?
