That adaptor is only a canbus converter to generate lights, speed pulse etc. It does not allow the radio to talk to the DIS. Unless I'm reading it wrong. I've used similar many times when fitting non Audi HU's into cars.

Not unless the radio supports it. I bought a 3rd party unit that did put the radio on the DIS but it's audio integration was terrible with loud clicks and pops on every button press. Had to send it back for a refund.

The three things you want are can bus MFSW steering wheel integration, signals such as ignition, lights speed and then DIS integration.

Hello S8Craig

Apologies to highjack this thread a little bit, but I've been reading elsewhere on this forum, that you know your onions in terms of Audi electronics and retrofitting / upgrading MMI systems etc?

I would have PM'd you, but the forum doesn't seem to have the feature, and the website that is linked to your profile is dead. How does one get hold of you?

Regards

Richard

Problem sorted - in the end I bought a Kufatec Bluetooth module for my A6, which was largely plug and play sitting behind the glovebox mounted CD multi-changer. It did require a code to be changed in VCDS to activate the functionality of the device, and small teething problem getting the music streaming activated, but Kufatec's support was good and swift.
