The drive is that much nicer when you’re able to listen to your favorite music, whether it’s by accessing your favorite radio stations quickly and easily, or listening to music using Bluetooth streaming or the media device interface. To select and save a preset on your GTI, press the “Band” infotainment button to toggle between FM, AM, or Satellite Radio. Use the tuning knob to select your station of choice, then press and hold any preset station soft key until you hear a confirmation beep. To save another preset, use the tuning knob again to choose a station and repeat the steps. While station presets are displayed in groups of five function buttons, you can save up to 15 presets for each band. To change the station preset groups, tap one of the three “Dash” function buttons on the touch screen or slide your finger across the screen. Streaming music with your Bluetooth phone is just as easy.First, your phone must be paired to the vehicle. To begin the pairing process, the vehicle should be in the Accessory Mode, with the parking brake applied. Now, from the Bluetooth Menu on your phone, search for new devices and select “VW BT,” with the last four digits of the vehicle’s VIN. A connection request will appear on the infotainment display. Press “Connect.” The infotainment display will then show a PIN. Some phones may require a four-digit PIN of 0000. Make sure the same PIN is displayed on your phone, then press “Yes” in the infotainment display. Now press “Pair” on your phone. You will see an icon showing the transfer of data between your phone and vehicle. When pairing Android devices, you will receive a prompt requesting access to address book information to be automatically synchronized every time the phone is in the vehicle. Once the phone is paired, you must make sure that the Bluetooth streaming is enabled in your Infotainment System. Press the “Phone” infotainment button, then select “Setup” on the touch screen and “Bluetooth.” Select to activate Bluetooth streaming. Now you can stream music from your Bluetooth device.Tap the “Media” infotainment button, then the “Source” soft key and select “Bluetooth Audio.” To navigate through your music, use the “Play,” “Pause,” “Previous,” and “Next Track” soft keys. You can also connect your iPod music player or iPhone to your GTI’s Media Device Interface (or MDI cable) that’s located in the lower storage compartment at the front of the center console. To play
