2010 Touareg: Bluetooth Upgrade for iPhone Music in 2018?

I have a 2010 Touareg that has bluetooth that works with phone calls and automatically plays any VMs or other app audio output through the car speakers, but it DOES NOT play music through iTunes app or Spotify/Pandora. Strange...

Anyways, what are my options for upgrading bluetooth so I do not have to run an AUX cable into the dash?

Thanks everyone!

Check Settings -> Bluetooth -> Bluetooth Settings that bluetooth audio (A2DP) is checked off

So my Touareg has no setttings option for Bluetooth as you describe. It’s just a basic radio unit. I have attached an image to this of the radio.

WHen you say "Other app audio" what apps? Some apps will play audio as a phone call, your Treg may not have A2DP audio.

If this is the case, see if there is a bluetooth adapter that will plug into the AUX port.

UPDATE:

I ended up just buying an FM to Bluetooth audio converter that plugs into the cigarette lighter. It was $20.00 and it works well enough!
