Why doesnt my iPhone bluetooth support RSAP ? Without RSAP I cannot connect to my BT VW car kit.
Is there any way to enable RSAP on iPhone ? any app ?

I don't understand how a top notch phone doesn't support RSAP.

Can someone from Apple explain whats the problem here ? is it hardware or software related ? Is it difficult to implement ?

3 months have passed and still no reply. :(

I don't understand it either.
I have a VW Tiguan and every Nokia phone my family member have works fine with it, but my brand new 3G iPhone doesn't connect. Is there any way to contact Apple Support team and ask them to solve this problem now??? Joäo is so right... it's been 3 months and we are unanswered...

Same problem for me, perfecly in sync with my Nokia Phone but the iPhone 3G is "invisible" with my RNS510 car system (VW-SKODA)
Shame on Apple Dpt.

It doesn't and from what I have seen online the new v3 software for 3G iPhone won't support it either (suggesting either the hardware isn't there or they will want us to buy the new v3 iPhone which is due sometime soon)

Guys,
Swap the BT module in the car to VW part number 1Z0035729B which uses HFP rather than rSAP and IS iphone compatible. Should be a straight swap even though it's actually a Skoda part.

I rthink its stupid change the rSAP module from your car to install a simple BT like a headseat this is not a solution.

Iphone 4S ( mine ) should work in my VW phaeton, and it doesn't my Bberry works perfect the Bberry of my wife too.. Nokia HTC etc works also fine.. only Iphone doesn't .. I will change it .. i cannot suport such stupid thing from apple.

No solution in FW 3.0 as far as I can tell.
It should be easy for Apple to solve the problem, but apparently it is not an important issue for them.

VW and Skoda Switzerland confirm that , the iPhone cant connect with rSAP .
Here (Switzerland and Germany)is a lot of car drivers with this problem and actualy without useable solution (or need to buy a second SIM chip for a Nokia wich stay in the car)
As again, shame on Apple because Bluetooth are a "standard technology" on ALL recent Phones.

You ́re right. BT is a standard technology. But rSAP isn ́t it! It is an concept of Nokia and besides NOKIA there are only a few mobiles which support rSAP.

As I have an iPhone too, I ́m also waiting for a solution.

We should all let apple know we aren't happy with the lack of rSAP profile in the iphone bluetooth, they may change their "mentality" and include it in a future upgrade:

There`s no solution for rsap this or next year because it`s a nokia standart. Beside Nokia it`s not allowed to use rSAP by other cellphone industries

Hi VW CC DRIVER.

That is not true. rSAP is supported by a large number of other manefacturers as well. It is a part of Bluetooth standard 2 and as such should be supported if you want to sell mobilephones to carowners!!!

We must get VW, Skoda, Audi, Seat and Mercedes Benz- or perhaps VAG involved to get rSap software updates ready for not only Iphone, but also Nokia N900 and Nexus One! They are the culprits, building Bluetooth beyond specification in their cars.
It's a German problem!

I've had this problem since a year and a half, and still unable to pinpoint exactly what goes wrong where and why. It seems the VAG kits are actually made, or based on products of... Nokia! Which would explain why Nokia phones work well. My Windows Mobile device (HTC TytnII) however "sorts of" worked with WM 6.0 (but had to install extra app + activate it each time), while in WM6.1 they had "incorporated" the missing rSAP feature - and it is as good as non-functional for all intends and purposes. I can get it to work in about, say 15 minutes (!) by continously making and breaking the BT connection when the carkit tries to get control over the SIM card. Timing problem? Bad implementation of the BT rSAP profile on WM? Nokia trick to keep users locked in to Nokia phones? No idea, but pissed off I am still (after having spent 1300+ Euro on carkit and phone). An opportunity for Appple to prove they can do it, but one Apple chose to ignore evidently...
