My understanding is that the phone doesn't transfer anything over to the vehicle module, rather, it's reading the information on the fly. That's been my experience. Both my wife's and my phones operate identically. Which ever phone the car sees first, it tethers to and all the contacts, and other information is available. I've got a Blackberry curve and she has a Samsung slider.

Ok, so I am a new owner of a 2010 JSW, with navigation. And after reading the manuals and pressing the various buttons in the car that things are not fully functional. So after reading alot of posts here, and now becoming a member to this forum, let me see if I have this straight:

If I want the full range of bluetooth functionality (absent the streaming audio), I would need to buy a new bluetooth module (part 1z0 035 729 c I think?), have it programmed correctly for my car, install it, and then find a VAGCOM owner to reprogram my car to interact with the new module appropriately.

Am I correct?

Thanks all!

yeah, i think something is up with my phone setting or some sort then, as i can see the recent names off calls in the MFD, but when hitting the call button on a recent call from the steering wheel it says call failed, like the bluetooth can't connect to the phone, it's like 4/5ths of the way there. Also all calls displayed on the MFD are just phone numbers not the names in my phone book.

If the module purchased is coded correctly you do not need to have VAGCOM handy for it to work.
I got one off Fleabay for $300, plugged it in and everything works except the voice command button on the steering wheel and the control module in the ceiling of the car does not function any more except for microphone. (no AD2P) but it is functional.

woofie, when you got the 9w3 and replaced your 9w2, did you have to run the new 9w3 microphone and antenna or did you just plug the old ones into the new module?

It was a simple plug in of the module. I did not have to change the wiring or microphone, nor have I adjusted the Vagcom coding of the steering wheel yet.

my friends Motorola Driod paired fine, all contacts transfered over, i was able to call out from the steering wheel, so i guess verizon neutered my LG or I need to find some hidden check box some place.

I stopped by the local verizon store, they were clueless, they said to stop by when their ubber geek was in and he'd love to look into it.

Over in the GPS forum I help run, we get VZ BT questions all the time. The consensus is that VZ does more to cripple BT on their phones than any other carrier. Theories abound as to why, but tinfoil helmet stuff aside [g], the fact remains that VZ phones can be a royal pain with BT.

With Garmin GPSes, it sometimes helps to delete all profiles and try the pairing starting from "the other" device, meaning phone first, car second if you initially tried it the other way around.

I also find my iPhone will once in a while fail to re-connect if the car is running and then I get in. If the phone is on, then I get in and start the car, it works 100% of the time so far.

The BT menue in the car is pretty non exisitant, it's almost as if its always broadcasting for new BT devices. I'll give it a try.

Maybe there is some sort of software hack that can free up the phone.

Don't have the book in front of me, but I think I recall my salesman showing me how to zero out the BT and put it in discoverable mode by holding a button in the roof console.

Default Open a case with VW to Demand a Course of Action to Get VW to Respond

I opened a case with VWOA as I purchased a 2010 TDI sportwagon on 1/2/2010 and here in the people's republic of oregon - the Oregon Regulatory Statues 811.507 state:

811.507. { + (1) As used in this section:
(a) 'Hands-free accessory' means an attachment or built-in
feature for or an addition to a mobile communication device,
whether or not permanently installed in a motor vehicle, that
when used allows a person to maintain both hands on the steering wheel.

As I pointed out to VWOA, the JSW module 9W2 forces me to take hands off the wheel and interact with the phone and distract my attention. (Read: non-compliant with the spirit of the law)

I recommend that other owners with the "9W2" module contact VWOA at 800-822-8987 with your specific case and ask for the problem to be resolved.

There should be an easy fix if we on this side of the pond can let the VW techs in the white labs coats know we want a solution....plug in a play...

United We Stand!

(Thanks Google search engine and "starbucker")

I'm pretty sure that the law won't help you since it's not mandatory that you talk at all on your cell phone while in the car. The law will tell you that it's your responsibility as the driver to comply with the law and just because your car can connect to your phone via Bluetooth, doesn't mean that you have to use the phone. If you break the law by operating your cell phone in your car because the car doesn't have a completely hands-free Bluetooth device, the onus is on you. There are plenty of states where using a cell phone in a car without a hands-free device is illegal. There are also plenty of cars sold in those states that have Bluetooth devices similar to the '10 Golfs and JSWs.

I understand why people are upset and the fact that various other VW models do offer a completely hands-free Bluetooth experience makes the knife in your back twist that much more. But c'mon, filing a legal complaint against VW? Oh the U.S. and our ever more litigious society. Must we always blame someone else when we're unhappy?

I digress!
