So I recently picked up a 3.0 tdi and I love everything about it was checking how to set up the Bluetooth and I have the phone book and can make a receive calls can also pull up numbers and that all works perfectly but I can’t stream music from my iPhone X I’ve gone to setting and media and it shows “enable Bluetooth Audio” but it does not show the option to choose Bluetooth in sources when it is connected to my phone through the Bluetooth I’m beginning to think I just don’t have the capability but let me know what you guys think :crying:

I’ve got a 2009 as well and i think the same as you. But hopefully someone is proofing as wrong and tell as how to do it 😩. I still got the original radio in it, but think of change it because of this flaw

From everything I’ve read the Bluetooth audio settings only apply to phone calls, not audio streaming.

I picked up a Bovee Tune2Air adapter on Amazon, ~$80, and it plugs in to the MMI adapter in the glovebox. Works great! The headunit can take a few seconds to switch back from phone call back to streaming audio, but I’ve had it for a month now and really like it.

I just picked one of these up and I am not too happy with how its been acting... constantly disconnects from my phone... then will reconnect with the volume at full blast. Definitely an unpleasant experience haha

I believe the RNS 510 radio in the 2009-10 Touaregs do not support Bluetooth for music. Only phone calls. The later RNS 510s support it but I'm not exactly sure how to find these specific 510 models with the added bluetooth capability. Many on eBay but no specific info on if it's music capable or not.

This will solve your issue if wanting to stream BT music.

Sadly, I wish I knew about this before ripping out my RNS510 and selling it on eBay so quickly thinking the Android unit was gonna work perfect (it did on my 2008 Passat).

Now I’m stuck with the Android unit and just need to figure out rear camera video feed issue with OEM camera already installed.

So, to update where I’m at on this topic, I got more and more frustrated with the Bovee Tune2Air and have returned it. Connection was slow to initiate, it wouldn’t recommend reliably after hanging up a phone call, and I was frequently unplugging/replugging it to reset.
I bought the Chelink Bluetooth adapter from Amazon, for roughly $20. It doesn’t do music tagging or display song info but the connection is WAY better. I’m looking for one that does do music tagging, but for an inexpensive Bluetooth solution it works well.
Unfortunately, when I checked amazon today it looks like they’re out of stock.
