    Goodbye Google Earth?

    It’s possible but it hasn’t changed the overlay in 12 hrs and it would have affected all Google mapped cars?

    Goodbye Google Earth?

    I have a March 2017 registered car and they were talking about it on the forums then, so Audi dealerships must have known?

    Goodbye Google Earth?

    I guess that’s it, after 15 minutes the map on my MY17 A5 reverts to this screen and doesn’t seem to recover to even the basic map overlay. I assume I’ve lost the Google Earth overlay, which I understood was meant to stop on 1 January 2021? Funny how it wasn’t mentioned when I bought it?

    Sat nav

    Do you mean the Google Earth overlay on the Audi MFD or playing Google maps thru Apple CarPlay?

    Sportback automatic boot lid issues

    No, I would say it only happens once, normally the first opening in a while, then it’s fine. I just put down to cold dampers/struts.

    Sportback automatic boot lid issues

    My 2017 Sportback occasionally does the same, but without any beeping, possibly because I don’t have the C&S Pack.

    Des, I have the same engine/model and considering a similar remap, now that the warranty is finished. Can you keep this thread updated on how you get on?

    help correcting service inspection interval please

    I had a similar problem, having had an oil and inspection service done recently but still showing the inspection due in March next year. The stealer's explanation was that it needed the brake fluid changed then so can't extend the inspection beyond March. Crazy.

    DAB Station Logos

    Slight thread drift, but my wife’s MY17 Golf shows the radio text ie who’s currently playing, whereas my MY17 A5 doesn’t - you have to go to a separate page despite the MMI screen having lots of blank space to display it.

    New S5 Owner

    If you bought from a friendly Audi dealer hopefully they will do it for free. However, if not, be prepared for an ‘admin’ fee of £50-80, but ask yourself if you really need it.

    Audi Sport puddle lights

    Lots of threads on the subject. Do you want OEM or 3rd party? What design? I’ve got a set from eBay and had no problems.

    Warped discs or not ???

    I had similar symptoms on a new car after 6k miles, Audi offered to replace them for £800 as not a warranty item. Mechanic did the hard brake test but didn’t help. In the end I did nothing and after a long run to Scotland and back, the vibration disappeared on its own, which suggests friction...

    As an update, my gearbox noise was fixed by a simple software update, phew.

    Oil service vs inspection service

    Are you saying as it’s optional the inspection service shouldn’t be set for the 3 year anniversary?

    Oil service vs inspection service

    So just had the oil and inspection done, but noticed that the inspection date on the MMI hadn’t changed! Turns out I still need to bring it in when the car is 3 yo for brake fluid change, so having inspection service early was a waste of time! We live and learn.

    Oil service vs inspection service

    I understand your thinking but how does that work re warranty? “To ensure your warranty is valid, you simply need to service your Audi according to our recommendations and keep to any mileage limitation set. Standard three-year warranty”

    S-tronic gearbox noise

    Now I’m worried! I only get a faint servo noise between 1-2 and 2-3, then I guess it’s too noisy to notice.only happens in drive not manual and once the gearbox is warm. Mmmmmm?

    Oil service vs inspection service

    Thanks for the responses, however, I still don’t understand why the MMI tracks 2 different services events, shouldn’t there just be a ‘service’? Never had a car (VW, Volvo, ) with different servicing cycles before?

    Dave, did you get anywhere with this?
