No. If you tell us to retain bluetooth, we will, UNLESS we don't see the bluetooth module in the car anymore. If the bluetooth module isn't there anymore (because it was built into the radio), then the bluetooth menus will be gray.

It is chosen to retain Bluetooth but since I have installed maestro there is not even a Bluetooth option in my Vw mfd display and my phone not longer sees the Bluetooth. The Bluetooth module is not part of my factory radio. There is a module in the car. So somehow maestro has deleted anything and everything Bluetooth from my car. No matter what Bluetooth option I choose when setting up the module. How’s can I get my Bluetooth back?

The new Kenwood has option to use my car or the radio. Neither is grey. I have tried both with no luck. My phone only connects thru the stereo and I don’t have a mic for it nor do I wanna get one and install a cheap mic... just want to connect back to my car Bluetooth.

If your phone no longer sees the OEM bluetooth, it sounds like the bluetooth module was built into the OEM radio.

Ok. Some people on the Vw forums said it might be built into the mdi module in the glove box but guess not. I do however know there is still a mic in my car. Is there a way to use it? Possibly have to splice the wires from it to the mic Input on kenwood?

Just figured out the mic wires are behind the head unit and they are in the green rectangle part of the factory harness. On the maestro harness they are just redirected to two unused ports on the green plug... I looked under the tape wrap on the maestro harness and figured that out. Could I splice those?

Found out the factory mic is an active whereas the kenwood is passive. Spliced then anyways to see what happens. Vs the kenwood mic. Made test call. With factory mic they said the volume was too low (even reversed the phase to be sure) went back and fourth between kenwood and factory mic. Adjusted mic settings in the kenwood each time. I the end my test caller said they did not like how either mic sounded. So no hands free talking for me 😔😡
