In today’s society, we are very technology-oriented and staying connected all the time has become a top priority for many. This includes staying connected while driving. While using your phone in your car is not recommended and even illegal in some states to text and drive, technologies such as Volkswagen’s Bluetooth system, allow drivers to use their phones through their VW’s infotainment system. With this feature, staying connected is safer for drivers and more convenient.

    Hallo Carlo. I have a similar problem. The car does not find the contacts that I have in my telephone, nor does it find any posts for missed or made calls. I have a WV Tiguan and an Iphone 5. I can use the Bluetooth link between car and phone once a call is established, but I have to use the phone to dial the number etc.

    Hello, I have an iPhone 6 Plus and a 2012 Passat. I had to get a new battery for my car, and when I did it it deleted the phones. Now it will not connect to my phone at all. It won’t even find the phone. Yes, my Bluetooth is turned on. I’ve done a hard restart, but nothing works. Any suggestions???

  14. Shubnit says:

    I just bought used VW cc 2.0 2012 . it has Phone switch on the multimedia but i coudnt able to connect my phone.

    Moreover that “phone” button is only working as a pause for radio…which creates doubt that may be there is no bluetooth in my car.

  15. Samuel Miller says:

    Your cars bluetooth is out dated . Most likely you have to purchase a new bluetooth kit for your car. Most cars that were made before 2014 will not be able to connect to any newer phones

  16. Linda Barfield says:

    I have paired my iPhone to my VW Passat and it works fine except that now when I crank the car, the radio comes on and then stops shortly after and shows “system starting” and then goes to BT Audio. I have to press “Band” for the radio to come back on. This issue started only after I set up my phone. Any ideas why this is happening?
