    Yet another MMI - Missing Data Question and solution wanted

    Did the 5570 MMI update today (mine was 4420 so I needed Disc 1. Went without a hitch and only needed to run disc 2 once) and installed the 2012 Nav Disc. I have a question for other A6 users:

    What details have you got listed in your Car Info panel, looks like I don't have everything. My son has an older lower spec car than me and he has the Battery Monitor and I don't. I have from top to bottom

    Audi Parking System
    Background Lighting
    Central Locking
    Exterior Lighting
    Instrument Cluster
    Service Interval Display
    Vehicle ID Number
    Windows
    Windscreen Wipers

    To be honest I didn't look to see if I had Battery Monitor before the update but its not there now. Can anyone tell me what should be standard and if I have something missing how to get it back. I dont have VAG-COM and dont even know what it is. Can I get it back without this?

    thanks

    Mick

    No Battery Monitor on my 2010 A6 so expect it was "removed" at some point. I believe that with VagCom it is possible to switch on a "hidden menu" with additional features one of which may well be the battery monitor.

    I've been in touch with someone local with VAGCOM but when I private message him now the messages dont show up in my sent folder so I don't know if he has got them. DO you know if there is a list of things that should or can be enabled?

    I have a 2008 A6 2.7tdi Quattro Le-Mans. It has front and rear parking assist with rear view camera. Not sure if I can get what you say. What is drl & VIM? You need the VAGCOM to get the hidden menu to enable these things DON'T YOU?

    Ah you wont get that, instead you have the camera.

    Daytime Running Light - If you have Xenon then you will already have these

    Video In Motion - If you have a TV Tuner you can keep watching when you are driving - by default the picture cuts out ~5mph

    Yeah you will need vcds to do this

    Where abouts are you?

    I have the Xenons so have DRL. Don't have TV Tuner (watch enough **** in the house without seeing it in the car too) ha ha
    I think I have both the camera and visual parking assist the same as the front warning.
    I'm in Northumberland, I've been in touch with Gary but he has not replied for a while, (obviously working)
    thanks for the feedback

    I PM'd Jonny yesterday but got no response, got not more response from gary3306 either. He seemed keen to try and help. maybe there is something wrong with my account for sending PM's or maybe they are both to busy. I'll see if I get a reply from either of them today, maybe I need to try someone else.

    Audi won't enable these for you as they're classed as a modification - if you're friendly with your service advisor and garage they just might if you persuade them enough

    Do you know which ones I should have as standard (which ones I have lost) & which ones I could have enabled that I dont have. I cannot seem to find out which ones should be there from the start.

    thanks

    You probably did have the battery meter before the update so this can be enabled again, just say it was lost when doing the upgrade.

    How do I find out what I should have, I cannot find any documentation which says what should be standard. Doe anyone else have a 2008 A6 2.7tdi Quattro Le-Mans that can tell me what I should have enabled and what I could have enabled.

    thanks

    Battery meter
    Central Locking
    Exterior Lighting

    Yes you've lost the battery meter because of the update - get Audi or someone with vcds to re-enable it

    Tbh, only extra worthwhile enabling is the hidden menu as you have most of the other things anyway which i mentioned near the start

    Stay away from Bootloader if you ever enable Hidden Menu

    No it doesn't. It was an 08 but it has a private plate on now. I've read that if you loose something from the menu it has to be relocated to another location in the structure of things. Is this true? its not just a case of re-enabling it.

    Ah right, just wondering

    Nope, all you need to do is enable the hidden menu, find the battery meter, press the tick box and reset mmi - now the battery meter will be in the car menu.

    I don't know what else in in the hidden menu so I don't know what else I could have. Is there a big choice? Is this Audi just been spitefull in keeping them from you?

    All I have enabled on my car is

    Hidden Menu
    Battery Meter
    Chirp on Lock

    You already have the rear camera so you already have the visual parking aid
    And you said you didnt want the video in motion

    Thats about it really!

    With the newer facelift cars you can do so much more like needle sweep, turbo gauge, oil temp, lap timer, passenger side mirror tilt - unfortunately none of these are avaliable on our cars

    I dont have the TV installed so the video on the move doesn't matter. My son has an 07 s-line with the phone cradle in the consol but no bluetooth. Is it just a case of enabling it in his hidden menu?

    Right, from reading different articles online, i think he might have bluetooth.

    get him to take the cradle off and it should see a few metal contacts when this is removed.

    now start the car and press TEL, it should say search for telephone or something similar .. try this
