The long awaited bluetooth upgrade has been launched.
Volk-L is the brand name for the VW dealer installed Bluetooth Handsfree system. The system is fully certified by Volkswagen allowing fully integrated handsfree communication with excellent audio quality and music streaming through your car stereo. The phone button housed on the steering wheel (when available) can be used to control your phone call – the button acts as the answer/green phone button and the end/red phone button.
Some key characteristics of Volk-L are;
o Volk-L is available for purchase and installation ONLY through an authorized VW Dealer
o Volk-L will NOT void your factory warranty
o Volk-L keeps it simple. It is designed to be compatible with a comprehensive number of Bluetooth enabled cell phones
o When Volk-L is installed it is not visible inside your Volkswagen. Your steering wheel phone button* is used to control phone calls and the microphone is concealed in your vehicle
o Volk-L mutes your stereo automatically when you receive a phone call, no matter what mode you are in – radio, iPod, navigation, satellite radio, etc
o Volk-L can also stream your music over Bluetooth (A2DP) from a compatible cell phone – in stereo (radio dependent)
