    Hi All,

    So I have had my S5 Sportback for around 2 weeks now. I have noted some niggles down during this time which I would appreciate some input on. (Coming from a BMW 320d, some things I found simple to do on there compared to this car). I have the HDD 3G High Satnav (2011 model)

    1 - Speed Warning Limit. So from what I understand the car has 2 speed limit warnings. However the Speed Warning 1 always seems to disappear after a journey. What I am after is a permanent (unless disabled) speed limit at 30/31mph and when im doing say 35 over x seconds, the limit warning should disappear. I've currently set via the MMI, speed warning 2 at 30mph. However this warning doesn't clear at all if Im on the motorway for example, so the speed warning symbol is there forever unless I go back to 30mph!

    2 - Bluetooth iphone Import Contacts List. I've not yet found a way to do this, there seems to be an option within the MMI Telephone settings to create contacts - but I dont want to create my 100-odd contacts individually. The actual bluetooth phone call works fine, but what I find i'm having to do is, find the contact on my iphone and then dial.

    3 - CD import ripping onto the built in HDD. So I have not yet found a way to do this. I have tried with an original CD that I bought, no luck. The 'audio CD' option is greyed out when I click on the Import tab within the MMI. I've tried with a Mp3 CD too but still no luck! So currently I've just put my songs on a SD card and that works fine (Importing from the SD card works fine, although I Have just left my SD card plugged in 24/7 and play off there). Was so simple on my BMW - Bluetooth contacts import.

    4 - SATNAV Postcode Entry - Why can I not enter the full postcode of where I live / anywhere I need to get to! It seems to only accept 5 or 6 digits (the space in the postcode also takes up a digit!!) and then I have to pick the street etc. Worked fine on my BMW.

    5 - Video in Motion - so I can play a DVD whilst stationary, but how can i bypass this restriction when driving (for my passengers of course!) I've read about VAGCOM but this Carista app seems alot cheaper. Can it be done on there?

    6 - Viewing how many times the car has used Launch Control - one for VAGCOM / Carista I guess?

    If you made it this far thanks for reading. A lovely car and fantastic engine, just these niggles I find very annoying!

    Ignoring the friendly welcome from Andy - please see below:

    1. Speed warning and trip computer 1 relate to your current journey and will reset once you've had the engine off for 2 or 3 hours (can't remember which). Warning 2 and computer 2 will only reset if you manually do it by pressing and holding the button on the bottom of the wiper stalk.

    2. When I've connected my phone it asks me if I want to import contacts. I'd remove and re-add to see if it does this.

    3. Copyright protection stops an import from CD - you can over-ride this with VCDS and possibly Carista.

    4. MMI 3G is only 5 digit postcode entry and a limitation of the system. This company have written software that does allow full 7 digit postcodes https://www.hazzydayz.com/mmi-3g-hi...7-maps-with-latest-firmware-update-3223-p.asp

    5. Look at this link https://trick77.com/tools/mmi3g_vimcode.php

    6. Sorry can't help with this one

    Good stuff. Regarding number 3, I got carista last week and don't recall seeing an option for cd ripping. It may be that you can enable it through the hidden green menu (the menu can be enabled by Carista).

    Launch control on Carista is a bit iffy. Mine reads 0 launches which I know isn't true because I then launched it to see if the counter changed - it didn't. ...which reminds me - must cancel the auto sub following the free trial !
