| | 2008 Audi A4 Bluetooth - Pearl Compatibility
Please Login to Remove!
Hoping someone can assist with this - I've seen some other posts that are similar.
I just picked up a new Audi A4 2.0 'Progressiv' model. It has voice command Bluetooth that I've managed to get working intermittently. When it works, it works great.
My first (and biggest) problem seems to be that the car->Pearl Bluetooth interface seems to cycle on, off, on, off, repeatedly. I can get the phone to pair successfully, then after about a minute or two of non usage it de-pairs. Then it pairs again without warning a few minutes after that. Then de-pairs again. And the cycle continues, which is really quite frustrating. In short, the Bluetooth connection remains completely unstable, cycling on/off/on/off, etc.
Second, and this seems to be a more common problem in other posts, but one I haven't yet seen a solution for, when I try to transfer the address book from my Pearl to the car, I receive a message on the Pearl saying "Unable to locate Object Push Server. Consult your manual...". Suffice it to say, the manual hasn't been much help in this regard.
The second problem, the address book, I can live with and can figure out a work-around. It's probably something to do with address book size.
The first problem though seems to be a hardware-middleware interface issue and is truly going to drive me batty. I'm led to believe from other posts (and from the really great guys at Mark Motors) that this is a Blackberry-Pearl issue, as opposed to an Audi issue. More plainly, the problem and solution are both on the BB side of the fence.
Has anyone else experienced this interface cycling on/off/on/off problem?
Thanks so much,
Ben in Ottawa.
