  • A friend (Pedro Monteiro) told me about a solution.

    Volkswagen has an interface that allow HFP (Hands Free Profile) that allows you to use iPhone and others without RSAP-
    The reference is: 000 051 473F and costs around 314.72€ + VAT and can be ordered in any official Volkswagen dealer.

  • I've ordered 3 VW two weeks ago for the company, and after reading this full post I have asked the salesman about this issue. He has confirmed that on the new cars they are suppling it is possible to connect iPhone.
    As I pretended to be totally sure as all three cars are going to be used with it's iPhone, I went to the dealer and I have connected my iPhone 4 and.... IT WORKS!!
    At least on new cars, VW fixed the issue.

  • One more confirmation: I had the new module installed (that actually replaces the original CAN-BUS module from VW) about a month ago in my 2008 Tiguan equipped with RNS-510, and it basically works. The module is from a company called mObridge (go to http://www.mobridgeinc.com/ and look for CAN Bluetooth for VW, Audi, Skoda). They actually use the chip set / technology from Parrot, which guarantees broadest GSM support you can possibly get.

    A word of caution however:
    - GSM reception is not as good, as you are simply using the iPhone as the GSM (the rSap module IS a complete GSM, with greater power and an external antenna - yes, the original idea was not half bad; until nobody but Nokia themselves supported it)
    - the microphone is not as sensitive (even with "mic gain" on max.)
    - most worrysome, we had the whole in-dash system crash a few times when placing calls, loosing route guidance and everything at that time (usually this happens on the worst possible moment, such as in the middle of a snowstorm on a German highway at night, just before a highway crossing). mObridge's reply: "can't be our fault" - while the system never had this until the module was installed. AND they suggested to have THEIR system patched with an upgrade. Go figure... I'll keep you posted if this evolves into something better / worse.
