Need a new mobile compatible with my Q5 set-up - no SatNav, but have "Mobile telephone preparation - Bluetooth interface" (Order code 9ZX, page 41 0f the brochure) and multi-function steering wheel. My dealer has very little information on compatible phones. Considering a Nokia 6303i. Has anyone had success with this one? Any other makes/models recommended?

iPhone 4. Works really well with the Q5.

Thanks, Josh, fabulous phone, one to be proud of, but thinking of something well under ?100 since it will spend a lot of time in the storage box between the front seats.

Hi

Got my car coming April,so will this phone work as an Ipod also, so I can plug into the interface and will it also work with a Bose docking speaker, or do I need to buy a phone and Ipod.

This is all new to me,

Not tried it yet.....but I understand it does work as an ipod......but if you do then the iphone will not work as a phone via bluetooth in the car.

Personally for music I would use a seperate ipod or sd card or put your music on a hard drive or the car's hard drive. All of these routes are not that expensive any more

Don't know about Bose. Give them a call.

Had exactly the same problem with lack of 'approved by Audi' status on most current 'phones. Very little information from the dealer so took a punt on the Nokia C5 - works well in the Q5 but my new TT can only read directory entries in the 'phone memory, not on the SIM.

Thanks a lot, I know once I get the Ipod I will sort it out, but I do find all this a bit daunting

why use the gadget in the center arm rest. i have had both Nokia and the iphone both work great with the bluetooth prep and through the steering wheel controls. Unless you have the MMI i found the ipod does not sound great throught the cable. I Have put all my music on an SD card and you can also bring that up on the screen in the dash. I dont have sat nav or MMi Either.So you should be in the same boat as me.

good luck

Thanks for that - by chance opened your reply just as I am in the middle of burning albums to an 8 gig SD card!
