It doesn't seem to be a navigation problem more of an interface problem. All the necessary information is there but you cannot utilise it correctly. I might be wrong but my MMI version is 4610 which doesn't exist in Europe, correct?

So if you have a US based car the MMI will not work in Europe correctly, you should have made that clear.

You will have to reflash the cars MMI controller with 5170 or 5570
My Audi dealer claims that I have to change my whole navigation unit as the US and EU ones are not compatible. I am going to try with a different dealer but if I would like to try to do it myself, how would I do it?

What you have shown is nothing.

The BT prep and Nav are not subject to CP.

Do a scan of the car and post the faults if any.
craigyb if these modules are not subject to component protection, what would you say about that?



I found this mesage in the hidden menu. :confused:

Hi!
You were right craigyb, my Nav unit was faulty, I’ve just replace it with new one, and it is working great!
I am going to replace BT module, but before I will buy one, could you give me some advice? What is the difference between that last letter? I understand that I would be the best to have one of the latest ones like 4E0910336 L for example, but is it really that important? There are some modules on eBay with H or F, and I am not sure if it is worth to spend more money and get the latest revision.

My second question is the part number of that little tray/ trim which is inside the armrest. My Audi dealer told me that I have to buy entire armrest :eek:. Well I was not so sure about it, I’ve done some research, and I fund 4E0 864 982. Could you confirm that this is what I need?
I would appreciate any help.

Be careful buying any H or F modules for A6/A8/Q7, Audi produced batches of modules with software that trashed themselves and the MMI, I have about 5 dead ones in my workshop.

They were fixed at rev K I think, so anything after K would be a good buy.

For cars with the phone under the armrest and twin armrests the part number is

4E0 863 075 D and then the colour code

For cars with a phone under the armrest and a single armrest the part is

4E0 863 075 C and then the colour code.

Rear lights

Craigyb,

do you know anything about recoding the control unit for the rear lights on my A5 imported from the US? Or could you recommend someone, who might have a solution? Audi (here in Sweden) are unable to help me. Currently the light that is supposed to flash (turn signal) is used as a reversing lights. One problem is that the same control unit handles the alarm and security settings as well.

Furthermore, I still have the problem with my MMI. How would I reflash it?

Thanks in advance

No, a dealer will not do this for you, unles you know them very well.

US-2-EU MMI conversion:

First of all:

-remove the navigation DVD
-remove all CD's from the CD changer

Then you have to go to the 'hidden menu':

1. open the “hidden menu” on the MMI by pushing first SETUP, en then CAR, keeping them pushed for about 5 seconds.

If this doesn't work, you will need to enable this option by means of VAG COM:

Select 07 - Control Head
Select Adaptation - 10
Select Channel 08
Select Read
Enter new value 1
Select Test
Select Save
Select Done, Go Back
Select Close the controller

Push SETUP & CAR button again, and you should get into the ‘hidden menu’

2. in the ‘hidden menu’ goto MMI>Settings en set “SWDL manuell” and “SWDL ignore Region/VMC' (see picture in previous post) ON

3. insert the EU 5150 file CD in the CD changer on location 1
4. choose in the “hidden menu” for “Start Bootloader”
5. Unit will start update
6. When the update finished: leave the 5150 CD in the changer, and press SETUP & RETURN at the same time and choose “UPDATE”
7. The system will update
8. When finished: remove the 5150 CD from the changer
9. Insert the latest EU DVD in the DVD player
10. Check whether the unit will read the DVD and shows TMC etc.

if so, you are done
Does the same idea work with a5s, obviously with the correct cds, but the hidden menu etc? Or is the mmi for a5 different?

Hi Craigyb,

I saw your description on how to convert an Audi MMI system from US to EU and have a question about it.

What would be the worst case scenario if the conversion doesn't work well ?

I'm asking this because my dealer in Switzerland is kind of willing doing this, however he won't take the responsibility if something goes wrong.
FYI: I bought my Audi A5 model 2009 when I lived in New York and now I've been relocated to Switzerland.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Just want to add, this was not my procedure. I have used the procedure once myself on a Q7, but I cannot guarantee it's functionality on an A4/A5 as the MMI 2G is slightly different on the A4/A5 to the A6/A8/Q7

Hi Craigyb,
If the procedure doesn't work correctly on the A5, what could happen to the system ? Would a reset simply bring it back to the old (I mean US) setup or would I need a certain kind of software to repair it ?
Thanks,
La Rose

Hi CraigB,
You seem to have a pretty high knowledge on the matter so I'll throw this and hope I can get some guidelines.

I'm being transferred from the US to Spain and bringing my Q5 2009 with me. I would like to know if it is possible to Re Flash the MMI system in order to configure it to the European system and if it'll still be possible to get Satellite radio & traffic updates in additional to the general navigation.

Thank you!

Craigy, I have a 2010 RNS-E from Europe and trying to convert it to use USA Maps. I've been told that no one has made the conversion work on a 2010 "193" unit. I've tried many recommendations from the forums but without success. The unit is working great with the exception of being able to load the US N. American DVD. I have the Ross-Tech VAGCOM tools and have create many CDR update disks with the "5 files" recommended, changed adaptation channel 37, coding 97 to a 1 and confirmed it was changed to enable an update but nothing has been accepted including the OEM map DVD (2009-10). The screen displays "please insert navgation media".

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
Karl
