  • I have a 2013 Audi Q5. I would like to activate the Battery Feature. When I press CAR+MENU.. nothing happens. Which keys do I press to see the HIDDEN MENU. Thanks.

    • Audi A5 can be equipped with MMI 3G system or simple stereo. Both are using colour LCD screen. If you have MMI 3G, then there should not be MENU button but SETUP button.

  • Hi Mr.Fix and Others,
    I have
    Car: Audi Q7 [2015] Australia
    MMi 3G plus

    Managed to enable the hidden green menu from your instructions.
    Tried to enable the Battery Level Status [I understand that your info is for 2G and 3G] but unfortunately the above process is not working for 3G+ [of course]. Waiting for your 3G+ instructions regarding this and many more.

  • Hi,
    I own a audi q7 with mmi sw au-hu 5140 0731.
    I cannot acces the green menu. How can i do that?
    Thank you for your time and for posting great videos.

  • Hello Mr-fix,
    Sorry if this has been handled before, but: it is a way to add personalised navigation voicings for MMI-3G+? Some way of retrieving and replacing backing audio commands would be great, as well as command pacing. I’ve recently updated a 2014 A4 US model to EU nav, but hate the Dutch voice!

    • Hi! There are some experts that can do it (they created polish version of the MMI 3G system with voice commands) but I don’t think that they will share how to do it yourself as they sell this upgrade.

  • Hi mr-fix i have MMI 2G HIGH will i have this option in this MMI ? I have it updated to 5570 but can’t find it . many thanks

  • Hi Mr.Fix.It! I am an Audi A6 3.2l Quattro,MMi High Version 2g w/update 5.5.70:
    I read in an Audi TSB USA that reloading the MMI update software package would
    correct battery drain/sleep mode settings to correct dead battery about ever three days. I have MMI update 4LO 998 961 installed in my European Vehicle .
    The battery is not an Audi battery (Varta). My battery is CAR/CAR Ca/Ca/ 95A 850A a/EN without a BEM Code sticker. I’ve removed the 5 Amp Fuse in the Rt/side dash fuse bank Nr. 1 which shut down MMI,Radio,CD Chngr. Navi.& BlueTh. resulting in the Perisitic Drain stopped.
    Can you confirm that TSB recommended Software reload will correct this battery drain problem?
    Thanks
    Jim
