Im Auto ist es ja bekanntlich verboten das Handy auch nur in die Hand zu nehmen. Um Siri aufzurufen, muss ich aber trotzdem den Home button drücken, obwohl eigentlich das VW Multifunktionslenkrad diese Funktion haben sollte. Vielleicht habe ich diese Funktion aber auch einfach noch nicht gefunden.
Aber als Alternative gibt es einen ‚mobilen‘ Bluetooth Button von der Firma Satechi®. Bisher habe ich diese nicht auf dem Radar gehabt, finde aber das Button / Remote Angebot interessant.
Mal schauen wie lange es trotz Poststreik dauert bis ich meine Bestellung bekomme. Glücklicherweise kommen die Pakete ja zumindest noch zeitnah.

„Now you can carry a multi-tool built right into the case of your iPhone. Sixteen of the most useful tools engineered into a thin and trim package. And at 89 grams TaskOne adds suprisingly little weight to your phone.
Utilizing quality hardened tool steels, aircraft aluminum, and polycarbonate, TaskOne is the next generation of multi-tools.
Not only is TaskOne functional, but it is also stylishly designed. Its total thickness is as thin or thinner than many other cases, and comes in a variety of brilliant colors, including Slate Grey, Cherry Red, Jet Black, and the Indiegogo only color Orange Flame. TaskOne does not sacrifice performance, yet is elegant and beautifully integrated with your phone.“
In combination with the VW radio RCD-310 my Golf 6 Team Edition can use the iPhone as the media storage device. When buying my car a USB to Media-In-Adapter was included.
The radio button are used to control the iPhone media and the hands are free for driving. When connecting the iphone with the media-in adapter in the middle console the external device was detected, but an error appears on the iPhone screen that the external device is not verified by Apple and can result in sound problems.
Volkswagen has an update on the website to update the radio.
I’m still locking forward the day we can update our car with an new firmeware by ourself.
Personaly I haven’t experienced any sound or other problems. It’s still low priced an can be bought for 36,20 online at the VW e-shop or the local VW dealer.
After 3 month experience with the Iphone 4 I’m really happy to upgrade from the Iphone classic. Only one time in Bern/Switzerland calling wasn’t possible, even with the bumper. But this was maybe a roaming problem. And the retina display is extraordinary beauty.
That’s cool, on http://blog.section9.co.uk/2010/03/iphone-rfid-reader.html you can see the work process in pictures. The RFID chip is from http://www.id-innovations.com/new%20launch.htm.
„The idea behind this project is to see what the iPhone’s serial is capable of and to try and have a little fun with RFID along the way. This reader works with the low frequency (125Khz) tags but I have a half working version for MiFARE Hi-Frequency as well.“
