Siri in 2012 Touareg

Anyone with an iPhone 4S that can check and see if you can activate the siri function from the steering wheel as opposed to pushing it on the actual phone?

Thanks

I've tried it but can't get it to work... just holding down the button for now and waiting for her to beep via bluetooth.

I've tried it with my 2011 and no luck. I've got the phone mounted just to the right of the steering wheel and can push and hold the button on the phone to activate Siri. The results are less than spectacular. There is too much noise in the cabin and Siri has a hard time recognizing what you are trying to ask it to do.

It works best for me when using a bluetooth headset in the car. With this method it works very well and it is the feature I was waiting for going on four years now.... .

I totally ditto that m1kefries! That's how I have mine mounted.... just to the right of the steering wheel and experience the exact same issue with cabin noise. It makes her crazy but in a bad way... Have also tried the Bluetooth Headset and you're on the money again, works way better but it defeats my listening to Pandora through the Tregs Sound System so I just limit my use of Siri while driving.

I've got that solved by using an iPod extension cable so I can extend the connector in the glove box out and over to my phone mounted on the dash. Then just close the glove box door on the cable. I have to turn the bluetooth on the RNS850 off, but then I can stream music via the cable and still use my headset to operate Siri.

Takes a bit of fiddling each time, but I normally set it up this way in the morning and then put it all back at the end of my work day. The added benefit is I've always got a good charge on the iPhone. Where there is a will there is a way......
