    You need to get a hex net. If you PM Uwe he will advise you of a trade in option.

    There is no Bluetooth dongle for VCDS. The HEX-NET uses WiFi.

    Matt already has a HEX-V2. As it is a current interface and universal to all VW/Audi, we don't have an upgrade program from HEX-V2 to HEX-NET.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    HEX-NET is the only option offered by Ross-Tech that will allow a phone to speak with a car. There are other products out there. They do use Bluetooth. They are not discussed on this forum. Please search for info on them in other places. Good luck!

    I think it wasn't entirely clear what you were asking for.

    If you're looking to use VCDS-Mobile, then you need a HEX-NET interface (which also fully supports VCDS running on a PC), but the HEX-NET uses WiFi, not Bluetooth.

    If you're looking for something that really used Bluetooth, there are a number of other products out there that come with their own apps, but this forum is probably the wrong place to ask for a recommendation.
