Quick Tips: How to Navigate Audi 2G MMI

Oct 30

Audi has made the MMI (Multi Media Interface) very intuitive, so to get you started with the basics here are some tips. This is a great tool that I like to give to my Clients here at Sunset Imports when they take delivery of one of our Certified Audi’s. The 2G MMI is in a lot of Audi’s on the road right now and this is a nice refresher for the system.

I have a 2010 R8 with the new MMI. I also have the iPhone 3Gs. I have AMI on the way as a retrofit, but it isn’t here or installed yet. I have two problems with the MMI Bluetooth system that neither my dealer nor Audi have an answer for:

1. The iPhone 3Gs paired up just fine, only outgoing calls from my MMI address book result in a “disconnected” message instead of an outgoing call. In other words, I cannot make an outgoing call from the MMI address book — only if I dial straight from my iPhone itself.

2. The incoming call tone is startlingly LOUD. I mean, it can be heard from outside the car, and it scares me and my passengers so badly that I fear ending up in a ditch somewhere. There appears to be no way to adjust the incoming ring volume on the MMI.

Do you have any ideas? Thanks so much.

To start with your 2010 R8 does not have MMI, you have Nav Plus, MMI and Nav Plus aren’t the same.

The next time you get a phone call use the steering wheel volume to lower the ring tone, from that point the volume should stay at the set tone.

As far as not being able to dial out from your address book, you may have to many contacts, but this is most likely a service concern.

Thank you, Scott. I’ll follow your points.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
