Default Bluetooth Audio

Hi All,

I have bluetooth fitted in my A8 - it comes up as 'kufatec fiscon'.

The bluetooth works fine and reads text messages etc.

When I play music on my phone and turn it up the phone seems as if it's turning the volume up on the bluetooth as my phone says kufatec fiscon is being turned up. This seems to me as if the audio should play through the bluetooth but I've tried every button on the dash and still the radio plays and not the music off my phone.

Does this bluetooth play audio or will I need ami - when I Google kufatec fiscon it says it is capable of playing bluetooth audio through mmi high which I thought I had..

You need to select the interface, if you press the CD/TV button and then press source you should see the kufatec.

it is also possible the version of MMI software is too old to support the interface. The MMI software can be upgraded but it is not without its risks.

The interface shows up as an additional CD changer if it's working properly. You can then play/skip tracks from your phone from the mmi controller. The Album/Folder would have to be selected on the phone itself.
The module is usually fitted under the carpet in the passenger footwell if you need to find it.

Thanks for your help, I checked and there is nothing listed when I press source and also the CD changer looks to be an actual CD changer.

I've read about the update and possible issues.

Looks like I will be best purchasing an ami - it would of been nice to find a way to get the kufatec working but no probs.

Thanks again

Presuming you tried activating A2DP as per the Kufatec manual, it might be worth trying a different phone. The manual mentions that not all phones are compatible but doesn't list which ones are or aren't.
I think i had an iPhone 5 at the time i had the D3 and it worked 100%.

I don't have the manual, maybe I can find it online.

I'm trying it with a Samsung S9+ so maybe it only works with older phones.

A bit off topic but maybe useful, my S6 connected with my S8 but my S9 won't, maybe a tech issue?

I already posted a link to the Kufatec Fiscon Pro which is the correct module for a D3 and is what i had fitted to my old D3.
I presumed this was the Bluetooth module you have.
