    very usufull info you have! i’m glad i find ur site.
    i’m looking if i can find a manual or a schematic for the bose ampli on my Q7; damaged by water leacking from sunroof.. i did not knew untill it blow.

    i read all the info you put. from where i can get the 3 CD mentionned in updating the MMI?
    My Q7 is 2007 model, now untill i fix or buy new bose audio i cannot access the MMI to check my MMI version.
    Thank You!

    • You can buy those CDs from your Audi dealer. It shouldn’t be expensive. You can find part no. in the article. Before buying confirm with your Audi dealer that those CDs will work on your car for sure.

  • Hi

    When i press car and then setup it shows me no further settings available for the car menu :(
    What can I do to verify my version ?

  • HI Great instructions
    I have A6 2008 V8 with 2G high MMI, Nav, Bluetooth, rear view camera, CD changer and AMI. The problem is that my CD changer is not working anymore so I am not able to use the CDs for upgrade. I do have VSDC software and ODB2 cable.
    Is it possible to do the upgrade using ODB2 or through connecting a USB flash to the AMI
    Any help would be appreciated.

    • Hi. In my knowledge there are two ways to update MMI.
      Eighter by using disk and CD changer or with Audi diagnostic tool (VAS).
      OBD2 cable just with VCDS or VAG-COM will not let you update the MMI system. Sorry.

  • Hey i have a 2005 a6 4.2 my current software is 1070 what are my steps to upgrade to 5570 ? also i wanna configure
    My aux input my car has factory bose with out the back up camera how much do the update cds cost

    • For Audi MMI 2G there are no official language packs. Try your local Audi forum for advice and remember that installing aftermarket software modification will terminate your warranty.

  • Hi, I have a Q3 2014 model…It has a NAV button on the MMI but it says it is disabled.
    Can I upgrade the software to include GPS??
    Thanks

    • if you don’t have GPS it’s most likely not a matter of software update. You need hardware as well: GPS antenna, DVD drive for maps (of HDD inside MMI)…

  • Hi ,

    Great guide thank you. However a faced an issue. Could you explain me what else I can try. I got the factory upgrade Cd’s and I have 2G MMI low( with the red screen)
    When I insert the first cd after a couple of minutes my car saysERROR “no dada cd in drive”
    I tried with all slots and cleaned the whole cd charger but the same issue all the time.

    Local Audi dealer charge £189+VAT so I do not really want do it with theme.

    Thank your answer

    • Try those CDs in your PC to check if your computer can read them without problem.
      Then empty the CD changer, place CD1 in slot 1, restart the MMI using three button combination (it’s here on the blog), when it start press and hold SETUP and RETURN, select SWUpdate and check if the CD will work.
      If not you should get a refund from whoever sold you those CDs.

  • Your comment…My MMI screen is off. U press the MMI on/off button, the MMI screen saver comes on for a few seconds & it goes off.
    I had parked in the sun for a day(in Ghana). Could that be the reason? What can I do?

    • This might me a overheat problem or one of the MOST components is not working (amplifier, navigation, SDS, CD changer, tuner…). Check all fuses, then try scanning the car with diagnostic interface.

  • Just bought an Audi A5 2008 , when I checked version it said SW 0130 , is this the basic version as I cannot even alter suspension ( hard ride , its a Quattro , sport) and how can I upgrade it , is it a case of purchasing the cd’s from audi ??

  • Hello. Very useful information, thanks! I have one question. I have Audi A8 D3(2003). When I update it with last version for 5570 something wrong. Because when everything is done my software is updated to 5150 not to 5570. Why is this problem? Maybe don’t have some modules for 5570? Thanks!

    • Start screen logo is the same for all Audi audio systems which is confusing.
      For sure you don’t have MMI 2G system which was available only in A4, A5, A6, A8 and Q7.
      Most likely you don’t have MMI 3G system but RMC system (Radio Media Center).

  • I updated bc i accidently pressed the bootloader button, but now i have no steering-wheel commands, no display for parktronic (just sond) , and many others menus from “CAR” are not there anymore. all the settings are just the same as before the update, but now i have no acces to change them. PLS HELP. how do i get them back?. A6 4F 2008, MMI 2G High

    • You need to access hidden green menu and enable all missing features according to your cars equipment. Please check hidden green menu description for MMI 2G.

  • Hi,
    I updated the first CD with no problems. When I try to update with cd2 (BT device) I get the message that no device selected for update. What I understand the Handyvorb2 is the BT device but I can’t check any of the boxes (bootloader or application). What am I missing? I have MMI 2G Hi, with telephone connection in the car witch I think means that I have BT?

    Kind regards

  • I have a 2007 Q7 4.2l with MMI 2G 2740, I burned both ISOs on speed 10x, new laptops don’t have a lower speed, we tried the first CD the S/W update didn’t recognise the software, all devices said N/A, i burned a couple of CDs more same thing, then i tried to run the second CD immediately, and the devices recognised the CD, i started the download and everything completed except for the siruis, once i rebooted MMI worked fine, but some menu options did not view such as the battery indicator level, and most important Bluetooth did not work, i tried to downgrade to CD1 still same problem could not do anything, is there any solution to downgrade again to 2740 again and then re-upgrade maybe get the bluetooth working.
    By the way I downloaded the cd’s from this site: a6retrofit.com
    Please if there is any help
    Thank you.

    • Sometimes during the update (specially from old versions) coding and adaptation values go back to default. That’s why some options are missing, BT does not work…
      All you need to do is enter hidden green menu and enable those features according to your cars optional equipment.

  • Hi
    I tried several times to enter the hidden green menu, but I couldn’t,
    I followed the steps you mentioned in this site, but I fail to enter.
    Thank you

  • Hi
    Everytime I try to enter hidden green menu I get this message:
    There is no more available settings.
    In red screen
    Thank you

  • Hi
    I have 07 Audi Q7. the software version is 2740. The car has no NAV, rear camera, Bluetooth or hands-free feature. in my case, Is there a benefit from updating or not?
    Thx

  • Hi I’ve got a Q7 2006 AVUS with rear camera, and BT. My phone reach to connect the MMI but when I stop the car it loose the connection. I’ve tried to update the bluetooth module but it seems to do nothing. I see only “Restarting the device…” again and again. It also show 0 N.D the 1 N.D … but nothing seems to work. I’ve waited 1h at least. I’ve updated nav and mmi to 5570 without any problems and my DVD are brand new factory one’s.

    Any idea that could help ?

  • Hi. I have run the 3CDs fine – and the update looks to have worked properly, but I cannot find the 3D maps on the sat nav. (I’ve got an Audi A6 Avant, 2006, with 2015 maps). What have I done wrong?
    Thanks.

  • Hi. I have update the MMI, but now when i turn of the MMI appears the MMI welcome screen . It is all right ???. When i have the old software the MMI turn off for real…. !!! Can you tell me if i have to change something from Settings ?

    • If you turn it off by press and hold of the volume knob, then yes – MMI logo should stay on the screen with small clock on the bottom.
      If you want to turn the display off, use button on the dashboard.

  • Updates with success! But not without turning the engine on.

    I would like to post how this worked for me:
    – If your MMI does turn on after clicking the On/Off button, and immedietly after the Audi logo back off, don’t worry. Without the engine running, but power on this never worked for me.
    – Start the engine, keep it running for as long the 3CD updates takes
    – Go to the SW Update menu as in the tutorial
    – Put in CD1 (~25 min)
    -> Everything needed is auto selected, so you can just proceed the update
    – Put in CD2 (~2 min)
    -> if you have no bluetooth you will see nothing is selected for this CD.
    – Put in CD3 (~10 min)
    -> Everything needed is auto selected, so you can just proceed the update
    – Done!

  • Hello,

    I have an Audi A6 (2006). I updated MMI to version 5570 a while ago and all worked well. I had AMI retrofitted recently. I do not know which version AMI the software is. I have an iPod touch (5th gen) and attach it using an Audi 30 pin cable (4F0051510AG) and an Apple lightning adapter.

    When I try to use the iPod through AMI, it is hit-and-miss as to what happens. Sometimes it is fine and plays without any problems while sometimes it says the device does not have any playable tracks, or it might show some tracks but then freeze when I try to play them.

    Please can you help!

    Do I need to run the MMI update again / update AMI / or use a different cable??

    Many thanks for your help.

    • Hi Gareth,
      I have had problems using a Bluetooth Viseeo WMA 1000 device plugged into AMI to play Apple Music from my iphone. I have had hit and miss playback and the “no playable tracks folder” on and off for a long time. I have software 4420 on my MMI. Have you solved your problems? mr -fix.info says run the update again but surely you would need the cd changer and ami connected to update it. Is that your set up?
      I look forward to your reply
      Kind regards
      Steve

  • Hi,

    I need to update my MMI software for audi A6 and also update the navigation.
    How can I do this? I cant even get green menu either.

    I downloaded some program onto a CD but when I went to start download in the red menu I didnt start.

    I cant change anything in the red menu – it all seems dead.

    what can I do please?

  • Just bought an used 2007 Q7 with no Bluetooth, back camera, or navigation! Is there any hope of me getting these features? When you press knobs ( tele, nav…) it says not installed! Please can I add an aftermarket radio with these features and if so what kind? I’m a female in Chicago and I don’t want to be taken advantage of or damage my vehicle.
    Thanks in advance

    • Everything can be added. Please google for “Audi MMI 2G bluetooth retrofit” and so on…
      Are you sure that you have no navigation? You don’t have DVD drive under the trunk floor for the map disk?

  • Good morning. I purchased an Audi A6 quattro le man’s 3.0 diesel. I also have the update cd’s. The mmi version was way below 5.0 and so tried to load cd1. Followed instructions but no update after an hour so gave up! Is there any way of knowing whether the cd is actually uploading I. E any indication on screen?
    Thanks

  • Thanks for the speedy reply. Yes I had my phone with your tutorial in the car with me and was frightened to get out in case any electrical interference! It may be my slot 1 cd as I have the owner manual cd and a couple of times it says no cd inserted when it had been. Having said that when I went through the tutorial it recognised the cd rom and got to the point where display said software update do not use electric stuff (or words to that effect).

  • Hi i have successfully update my mmi from 0770 to 5570. But i have a fault code on the sound module 02084 component protection no or incorrect basic setting/adaptation static. The amp work perfect so i don’t know what the code is . I ve tried to clear the code but can not.Please advice
    Regards

    • Hi! While updating MMI and other components (amp, nav box, cd changer, tuner…) some of the devices might loose coding and adaptation values. Please check all components if coding is correct and it fit your car equipment.
      You can quick look for a 0000000 coding. If you can find empty coding, then try you have to analyze all modules.

  • Hi
    I have a version 4140. 0709 , to what version I can upgrade , I’m leaving in US and how many CD’S I have to use?

  • After updating is it possible to have suspension issues? Also what can happen if the car was driven while being updated?

  • Hi,
    My Navigation DVD is failing intermittenty. (wont display map). Looks like failing laser.
    I bought a second hand replacement but it fails to initialise. It is not component protected.
    If it came from a car with newer software than mine (4220) would that prevent it from working?
    Thanks. Neil

    • You should buy original CDs at dealers. It cost like 10$ and you don’t need to worry about improperly burned CDs that will damage your MMI.

  • Hello, i’m stuck informação cd2 for more transferência 2 hours.

    It says initializing pheripheral and then for a second in contact With pheripheral.

    Is this normal?

  • Hi:
    Firstly great work!
    I have a 2009 Q7 (USA) that i recently updated the nav disc. Now the navigation seems to drop from maps to the destination (where you enter the destination) screen on its own. Any idea what might be causing that?
    thx.

  • Hi!,
    I bought an A5 from the US market and the maps , software is from that country.
    Can I change the software to the ureopean version by myself?
    wich type of procedure I have to do?
    thank you

  • My car is a A6 AVANT 3.2FSI QUATTRO with MMI 2G. In MMI the SW number is C6-HU 6362 07.4.0 0444, which is a strange software version number when comparing with what other audi owners post on the web. I’m wondering if it is a different software version regime because of its Japanese origination or language pack.
    I want to upgrade my MMI system using the MMI 2G software update to version 5570 via the red screen and loading the cd’s one by one (3 in total). I’m hoping this will overwrite the japanese language pack currently loaded onto my MMI system. Do I load the Euro version or is their an Aus NZ version I should be looking for?

    • Yes yours is different as is Japanese. It will be older 2005 software release.
      You can upgrade using the euro cds but you will lose ur radio and require a European K box replacement ($149 off ebay)

  • hi, i have tried updating my mmi 2g high and cd1 went successful, i then put in cd2 which came up with a fail and asked if i wanted to retry,i clicked on retry and it just froze, left it for hours and nothing happened,even taking key out it stayed on, in the end i had to disconnect battery, now the mmi boots up but radio etc works then goes off for a second etc, whenever i try to do anything it just keeps jumping,it doesn’t display anything anymore for heated seats a/c,parking etc, and if i try the update again it just stays on reading meta data information and does not change, please help

  • Dear Mr-fix,
    I have try to make the update to the A6 of my father, CD1 seem to go well, but after the reboot, I cannot access to the update menu anymore (setup-return)!
    Do you have any idea?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Great advice so far!
    Installed CD2 and it took approx 6mins and restarted the MMI automatically. Then installed CD2 again to make the Bluetooth work (Bluetooth worked with iPhone before this update) and the install seems to be taking a long time (over an hour) is that normal?

  • Hi, I got a 2007 Q7 without BT and Nav. The sw version it’s 28.6.0 can I update to this version if it’s got a Bose sound system ? How can I add BT to it? Thanks

    • Yes you can update. Use CD1, then CD3.
      You can retrofit bluetooth to this car. You’ll need BT module, microphone, some wiring (if your car is missing it) and diagnostic interface to code it.

  • Hi, i have a 08 q7 ,I have following to update mmi from 5150 to 5570 with the 3rd Cd, but it keeps opening file to unlock a lot of files over 24 hrs still not yet finish the update, what’s wrong I missed, I am dare to stop it , but I don,t know how long I need to wait and I wanted to know how many files need to open? Old help

  • I think updating my software on my 2007 Audi C6 Avant and enabling battery monitor has caused a problem where the car now does not go into standby and or shut down electrical components which is causing my battery to slowly drain overnight causing a low battery warning every morning and no exterior and interior lights on dark mornings. Can anyone help with how to fix this, I am thinking it will need to be rolled back! Is this possible?

  • Great site. Just bought Audi A6 2007 which has MMI 2G High and which is running version 4220. There is no Bluetooth. I am considering having the Fiscon BT kit fitted. What is the best order? Fit Fiscon then do software update? Or update to 5150, then fit Fiscon, then do BT update on CD2 and finally CD3? Is there a risk that updates could cause Fiscon to fall over?

    Many thanks!

  • For me it says that “Metainfo cannot be annalysed” when i do put 1st or any of those three discs. Ive been downloading those files from [CUT] this link. and the car ive got is audi a6 2005 with MMI 2g high. this is the picture of system info http://imgur.com/a/YnHsE . Any advice? thx

    • Most likely disk image is damaged/fake or CD is burned incorrectly. I do not recommend using self-burned update disk. THere’s a risk of bricking your MMI.

  • Hi, Few questions. I have USA version 2009 Audi A4 (B8 Model) my Radio No: 8T1035186R Display N: 8T0919603A HW: H01 SW: 0301. I believe I have 2G High. Would this update work for my system? I am having issue with the radio drawing voltage and someone said if I update the firmware it will fix the issue. Thank you kindly!

  • hi mr fixit
    I have Audi A* 2006, with MMI 2g high, bluetooth etc. and factory prep phone installation. Will this update enable full bluetooth connectivity with current smartphones? i.e. Addressbook, call history, music play etc

    If not, updating seems pointless

  • My US 07 Audi Q7 with SW: AU-HU 46.1.0 0805. I ordered 4F0 998 961 which only comes with 2 CDs (CD1 and CD2) from Audi Parts Dealer. This instruction mentions in subtitle:

    MMI 2G software update version EU 5150 / USA 3360 / Russia 5540 – procedure for CD1

    and

    MMI 2G software update version EU 5570 / US 4610 / Russia 6030 for CD3

    Does it mean, I have US 4610 already, so I only need to run CD3 ?

  • Hi,
    I have Audi A6 2008, There is no Bluetooth and Telephone not installed. If I update to mmi is its works bt.
