    Audi Connect subscription

    No, you are not misunderstanding, that's absolutely correct.

    Audi Connect subscription

    As I understand it, the only use for the SIM card slot is to provide a WiFi Hotspot in the car for other users to connect to. The built in SIM doesn't provide this. For online traffic, send to car functionality from myAudi app etc etc you need an Audi Connect subscription which then includes...

    A3 2.0 TFSi Engine thoughts?

    Much better! But I'm probably biased as mine is a Black Edition with the same wheels :)

    Have you been able to pick the car up yet?

    A3 2.0 TFSi Engine thoughts?

    I could now it's out of warranty but I still wouldn't. I just don't want the hassle of having to declare mods to the insurance company whenever I renew. If I'd wanted more power I would have gone for an S3, but I feel 200bhp ish is enough for me. I had a Mk7 Golf R before this which was good...

    A3 2.0 TFSi Engine thoughts?

    I think a rant is well justified in the circumstances!! I think we need a priority change with regard to RTAs. Unless there are genuine reasons not to, the absolute priority should be re opening the road, not closing it for hours at a time for a small bump as they do now.

    A3 2.0 TFSi Engine thoughts?

    I've had my 2.0TFSI quattro for just over 3 years. The engine has never missed a beat. It's smooth and quiet when driving normally, but knock the Stronic into sport and there is plenty of power when required. My long term mpg is 35.3. It's a great "have your cake and eat it" engine IMO. I...

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    They just eventually appeared. All I did was disconnect and reconnect the phone a few times. Strange.

    New Car Nav Issues - The Navigation Data Are Invalid

    I think so. Unless it was advertised with Nav, I don't see that you have any case at all. I don't really see how you could think it was their mistake either. It was correctly advertised without Nav. The fact that it's actually "Nav Ready" and just needs an SD card could be argued as a bonus.

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    The phone is synching OK with Google's "mothership" - it updates saved places straightaway if I go into Google Maps directly on the phone. It's Android Auto's version of Google Maps that was showing different favourites to the phone it was running on which you would think was the easy bit. I...

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    Well that's very odd - I've just gone back to the car to take some screenshots showing the favourites list on the phone being different to the AA one in the car, and miraculously my favourites folder in the car is now populated correctly with my Google Maps account ones. Yesterday it was empty...

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    Interesting. So if you access Google maps via a PC/Mac or tablet and add a saved place there does it then show up in the car in Carplay? With mine even if I add a favourite to Google maps on my phone, it doesn't show up in AA. Its as if they are two completely separate versions of Google Maps...

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    I would have thought that too. I get the standard saved places folders within AA (starred/favourites) but they seem to be completely independent from the ones on my Google map account and don't synchronise between the two. Do yours in Carplay synchronise?

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    Having done a bit more googling of this, it seems that this feature doesn't work with AA. Seems a major downside to me. What is the point of having saved places on your Google Map account but not being able to access them in Google Maps in the car? Also I've noticed that AA Google Maps only...

    Facelift Android Auto Google Map Saved Places. Should they sync to my account?

    I'm just starting to try out Android Auto in my 2018 8V. It's all working OK, but I've got an issue with saved places. In my Google map account I have the standard Favorites/Want to Go/Starred folders of saved places plus a few more in my own named folders. I was fully expecting those to...

    Audi Connect subscription

    I thought I would update this in case anyone else has the same question. I spoke to the Audi Connect team twice about this and they gave me mis-information both times. Firstly, one of them said that provided I had a Data SIM I would be able to use that as an alternative to Audi Connect to get...

    Stealers!

    Yes I guess I could, but I am not sure it is a dealer specific problem - it seems all Audi dealers work the same way guided by Audi UK. The service guy I spoke to said it's Audi policy to do the videos and to highlight anything that they think the customer needs to be aware of / makes them more...

    Stealers!

    So this morning I've just had a text from the stealer. "Thank you for your visit to Audi ******* , we aim to deliver a 5-Star service; please text back YES if we have delivered this or NO if you would like someone to contact you." Nothing about the option of giving any other rating other than...

    March 2019 brake fluid change

    This is what I find annoying about the flexi service system. Your "main" oil/inspection services might be at 18 month ish intervals but then you get other things like brake fluid, Haldex oil, pollen filters etc that are year based. So everything gets out of sync and you need 2 service visits in...

    Stealers!

    I agree and I don't if I can help it either. I only went to them this time because of the gearbox firmware update issue which my Indy can't do. I've just picked the car up and they say they have done the requested gearbox update, and another software update "24GP" as well as the MOT. I have...
