    push to talk should work or look at address 16 coding

    Anyone knows about 2G? Can we enable the oil temp meter? Or there is no oil temp for 2G? Thanks

    Firstly the secret menu must be enabled with VCDS beforehand.

    [5F - Information Electr.]
    [Adaptation - 10] -> Channel 6 -> Change 0 to 1
    Save and Exit.

    Next -

    Press/Release car (turns red)
    Press/Release setup (turns red)
    Press/Hold car & setup at same time for approx 6 seconds (setup button red light goes out)
    Release both buttons then press setup again.

    To exit the Hidden Menu you need to restart the MMI -

    Press and hold down the function keys (Setup), the control button (Joystick centre button) and the control key at the top right simultaneously until the MMI system shuts down. Release the keys and the MMI system reboots.

    3G simply refers to the MMI being the 3rd Generation. It's not a function in itself.

    You get better screen resolution, quicker response, 3D images on the Satnav etc etc

    3G came in with the MY2010 models around July 2009. Beware that even if you buy a car with satnav after this date it may not be the full thing as the DVD based satnav was still available. The easiest way to tell is ;

    Non satnav car :



    2G Satnav cars have the MMI rotaty controller down by the arm test.


    3G satnav cars have a little thumb joystick on the top of the MMI rotary controller.

    Hard to tell from that pic. You should be aware that the changes for the MY2010 cars were quite a lot. At least a lot more in any year before or since. Check out this document :

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3628815/Car/...nd pricing.doc

    Personally I'd try and get the later car due to the benefits not least the quieter wing mirrors.

    Not sure what the above one is though. I suspect an earlier car based on the glimpse of the mirrors. Also since it's a manual, if it's a 2.0T or a 2.0TDI then it's an earlier car as the later ones have Stop/Start and a button under the coin holder (the slot thing near the gear shift).

    I'd say it's MY2009 but during transition there's always a few off build cars.

    Simple thing is to ask the dealer

    He confirmed it is a 2G model, not sure if it is possible to "upgrade " to 3G ? If that is possible then could be a green for go

    Technically it is but financially it isn't. Once you've thrown the £3k+ at it then it's obviously worth just buying a newer car.

    If you don't have navigation then you won't be able to access the 5F module as it will not be fitted to your car.

    Oh I see! Thanks so for all the VCDS mods that require activation of the hidden menu, impossible for me?

    It's only for MMI 3G systems, that have navigation with the 5F module installed.
