Hi all.

Quick question:

I have an A5 without the telephone add on. There's still a 'speech' button on the steering wheel though that when pressed, says 'button not in use' or something similar. Is it possible to program the button to do something else?

I attach a pic demonstrating the button I'm on about!

Cheers

Chris

Well... some aftermarket solutions tap into the steering wheel controls, it might be possible to use one of them (I know Parrot products have been installed in Audis).

Such as this:

You could always retrofit Bluetooth to get phone and thus voice control for the phone. The instructions below are for MOST/full MMI cars (2G, not 3G), but many basics are similar for Concert/Symphony radio if you have that, so you get some feel to what is involved, only thing different is that with Concert/Symphony there are no optical cables to wire, just different kind of CAN/K-line wiring... contact Kufatec.de for a kit.

I have not heard of any solution (VAG COM or otherwise) to reprogram the speech button to do some other in-car function, though.
