* Due to old age of Audi 3G MMI system, there is inevitable mic echo when you are using the device's bluetooth for handsfree. It is NOT possible to eliminate it completely as it is Audi's 3G MMI system is too slow to be used with newer smartphones. (3G MMI was designed in 2007~8). To avoid echo, you are required to use Audi's original Bluetooth handsfree. You should connect 'Autokit' BT first to establish the wireless carplay connection, and then required to manually connect again to Audi BT for handsfree and music streaming. After, you must remain Audi Bluetooth as a media source in your MMI to listen and use Audi handsfree. Occasionally you are required to manually switch the phone call speaker or media playing source by clicking speaker button in call or airplay button while playing music over the bluetooth. For Android phones, this is customizable in Bluetooth setting. However, this 2 way sound path setup will result malfunction of Siri or Google voice command. This has to be fixed by Google or Apple by allowing Siri or Google Assistant to hear your voice and answer back through Audi BT. Again, this is something that we cannot fix as the problem is in Audi 3G MMI system. PLEASE DO UNDERSTAND THE LIMITATION, AND THIS IS NOT A GOOD SOLUTION IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR OEM SYSTEM GRADE INTEGRATION FOR HANDSFREE/MUSIC STREAMING WITHOUT ANY OPERATION ON YOUR PHONE. EVERY AFTERMARKET SOLUTION FOR AUDI HAS THIS PROBLEM AND IT IS NOT ANYONE CAN FIX UNLESS GOOGLE OR APPLE FIX IT. CONSIDER RSNAV S3 SYSTEM INSTEAD WHICH HAS BETTER SUPPORT AND INTEGRATION WITH AUDI 3G MMI BLUETOOTH SYSTEM.
* Android Auto Wireless is only available to certain Android Phones. Check with your phone maker for Wireless Android Auto support.
