  • I got the “green menu” enabled, using Ross Tech unit. 2014 Audi A8L
    Pressing car slightly before menu brings it up. other order does not.
    I get to the menu, but there are 2 items:

    There is no 4/4, just a box for each. The boxes were solid in color, tried clearing both boxes, no import, tried setting both to filled again, no import.

    The CD does show greyed out, and the CD plays fine.

    Any other ideas?
