    MMI IPod controls

    Hi all. Just picked up my new A3 at the beginning of this week and Im loving it. Sadly Ive got one niggling issue. Had a look in other threads but not found the right answer.

    When Ive had my iphone or ipod connected using the mmi/ami ipod connector cable, I am unable to browse by artist/album or select to randomise. Browsing by song works fine but its frustrating when I know I should be able to. Anyone else experienced a similar issue or know how to fix this?

    Thanks

    As I've got another 3 months to wait I can't help you! Try this Audi A3 MMI - YouTube at 3:40, it might give you an idea on how to browse albums/playlist. Appreciate it doesn't show the controls......

    Got my new A3 yesterday....couldn't find the Randomise option either Luke, but set my i-pod to shuffle and that's what it did. However couldn't shuffle within a playlist.....There are so many features to the MMI that it'll take ages to figure out what it all does!!

    Randomise should be available by clicking the bottom right button to bring up settings whilst in media. I am aware I can set the random before I connect my device, but thats not the point, I should be able to browse by artist/album/song safely while Im driving and not have to select what I want via my iPod.
    What version of cable are you using to connect your iPod MR S?

    Whats the part number on it? 4F0051510K? The Audi dealer I spoke to about this on friday believes its a software/firmware issue (thats after I shot down his first theory that there was something wrong with both my iphone and iPod!) Seems strange Audi allowing its cars to leave the factory with an older firmware build

    OK Luke....maybe you do have an issue, because when I was out for a drive this afternoon, I managed to find my artists/album lists. When you play a song, do you get a list of upcoming songs? If so, try scrolling up to the top of the list and you get an option to "go up" which takes you to the artists/albums lists.

    Tried that, only lets me select all songs. I think its the cable, been reading that the required cable is 4f0051510R. Could you check yours to see if thats the part number writen on yours? will help me narrow down my issue, think it should have a red ring on the cable.

    Think mine is blue....seeing as how we're the only people to own an 8V in the UK, I'll go and check for you.

    Well, my dealer gave me the cable....it wasn't in the car, so the salesperson got one for me; I didn't pay for it.
    So what spec, engine and colour did you go for Luke?

    No...I've been reading about the really hard ride in the motor press, but it's fine. I love all the gadgets, the headlights are amazing, it's comfortable, quiet and quite punchy, although I've been quite kind to the engine....so far.

    the 135mph they claim the 2.0l can do is easily achievable. audi have really out done themselves.
