Audi A4: Introduction

Applies to: vehicles with telephone

You can operate various telephone functions easily through the MMI in your vehicle.

Depending on the country and the vehicle equipment, the following options may be available:

  • Connecting a cell phone with Bluetooth
  • Using two telephones
  • Using the Audi phone box

WARNING

  • Medical experts warn that mobile devices can interfere with the function of pacemakers. Always maintain a minimum distance of about 7.9 inches (20 cm) between the mobile device antennas and the pacemaker.
    • Do not carry the mobile device in a pocket directly over the pacemaker when the phone is switched on.
    • Switch the mobile device off immediately if you suspect it may be interfering with the pacemaker.
  • Do not use the voice recognition system* in emergencies because your voice may change in stressful situations. The system may take longer to dial the number or may not be able to dial it at all. Dial the emergency number manually.
  • Switch your mobile device off in areas where there is a risk of an explosion. These locations are not always clearly marked. This may include gas stations, fuel and chemical storage facilities or transport vehicles, or locations where fuel vapors (such as propane or gasoline vapor in vehicles or buildings), chemicals or large quantities of dust particles (such as flour, sawdust or metal) may be present in the air. This also applies to all other locations where you would normally switch your engine/motor off.
  • The demands of traffic require your full attention.
