Bluetooth streaming or possible new heat unit
Iíve fallen in love with the A5 and am about to buy a circa 2013 Black Edition. The one hesitation I have is about audio streaming. The ability to play my music in my car is pretty much a deal-breaker for me. The problem is that I listen to Spotify almost exclusively so need to be able to stream playlists to the head unit, and ideally skip tracks via the steering wheel. The ability to choose playlists would be a bonus, but itís not essential. Iím also getting into podcasts so want to be able to stream them too. There is a third requirement, to use Waze as the nav Ė ideally via Android Auto Ė but I can find a workaround for that if needs be.
I have two questions. First, do I need the tech pack advanced to stream via Bluetooth and if so, is that standard equipment in Black Edition models built around 2013? Second, are aftermarket head units any good, are they heinously fiendish to install (by a pro) and do they devalue the car at resale? If the answer to the second question is yes, no, no, do you have any recommendations, the Dynavin perhaps?
