Great auto, 3rd world bluetooth
By rmcmilla on
2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
I have been following the TDI for a year and finally purchased one recently. Impressed with the zip-ability of the TDI and the DSG is the transmission from heaven (really, it is that good). The big surprise was to find my common Verizon cell phone will not connect to the VW bluetooth system. It works great in my Ford's Sync system but it is not on the short list of acceptable Verizon phones that work within VW. No where in the VW literature (that I can find) nor on the auto's window sticker state the Bluetooth's connectivity is so limited. Big disappointment, now I need to purchase dumber phones to work in both autos.
Engine and transmission.
Sorry to seem so petty but hands free connectivity should not be a big deal, Bluetooth is Bluetooth, make it work. Besides, it is the law in California. iPhones can work only as a phone but can't stream music and many phones can't work at all. VW is really behind on this technology front.
