    My car a 2014 a3 8v with virtual cockpit and 8v1035035 mib2 (hacked unit)
    As my car does not have a mib2 audi connect subsciption (duh) i want to bypass the audi connect feature, like the a4 canadian spec tread.
    Tried the A4 google earth funktion but cannot make it work....

    Checked all the items in adaptation and make them the same. I am also able to activate the client funktion and search for wifi hotspots. Does anybody has made it work? How?

    Thanks in advance!


    To enable Google Earth (this will require using your mobile phone's data connection as hotspot):

    Step 1: Set the following adaptation in module 5F (this can be done by VagCOM HEX-CAN-USB or OBDEleven) :

    IDE03471-ENG117848-Vehicle configuration-gracenote_online_coverarts - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117849-Vehicle configuration-gracenote_online_other - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117843-Vehicle configuration-my_audi - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117845-Vehicle configuration-online_dictation - ON
    IDE03471-ENG127495-Vehicle configuration-online_media - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117840-Vehicle configuration-online_navigation - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117837-Vehicle configuration-online_POI - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117838-Vehicle configuration-online_POI_voice - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117839-Vehicle configuration-online_portal_browser_services - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117841-Vehicle configuration-online_street_view - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117844-Vehicle configuration-picture_navi - ON
    IDE03471-ENG07588-Vehicle configuration-SDS_Region_Flag - NO_REGION
    IDE03471-ENG117836-Vehicle configuration-VZAPro - ON
    IDE03471-ENG06576-Vehicle configuration-WiFi_Client_HMI - ON (only becomes active with internal sim off)
    IDE03471-ENG117842-Vehicle configuration-WIFI_Hotspot - ON
    IDE03471-ENG117846-Vehicle configuration-remote_HMI - OFF (this turns the audi connect option off in mmi.

    Step 2: Restart MMI

    Once you've made the above changes, RESET MMI by pushing and holding the toggle to NAV and RADIO at the same time, then press the center **** to restart
    While MMI restarts, turn on your mobile phone's WiFi Hotspot

    Step 3:
    Go to Settings in MMI > Connection Manager > Configure your WiFi Settings in MMI to connect to your phone's hotspot

    Step 4:
    Go to Navi/Map > Click to the 'Right' Option button > Select Map Settings
    Under Display > Click and Select Google Earth

    If you've configured a successful WiFi connection, Google Earth should load within 20secs or so

    Can you not just purchase a dongle?

    You sure you’ve got the virtual cockpit? That is only on FL cars.

    Hi !!

    I have the exact same situation (A3 8V 2014 + retrofit MIB2 plus + VC). I did exactly the same configuration but no matter If use hotspot or SIM... is not working anyway.... :( Once I press google earth option I see a progress bar for some seconds and then It just disappear and nothing changes....

    There must be something more different... Can you help me with this ¿?

    Thanks !!

    I came from the std MMI to MMI2 high so i had to add in aerials before the google maps worked.

    I think not all units are hacked the same either, from what i read not everybody gets everything working. I know of somebody that has scripts missing from his so he has no google maps.

    Not all units are hacked the same, there are a few different methods however if you have a "used" MIB2 unit that's been hacked you should be able to get online services if its been setup correctly. If you purchased a brand new MIB2 unit that was then hacked its never going to happen. VW Group controls access to their online services by MAC addressing. which is configured within their network when the vehicle rolls of the production line. Any new units purchased outside of the production like will not have had their MAC's added to the database so are blocked by the firewall.
