    A4 B9. Reading through the handbook and setting up the app I’ve noticed mention of unlocking your doors with a touch of your phone to the handle . Is this a feature on this car ? Cheers

    I don't believe this works on UK cars, you can unlock it with the my audi app though

    How do you unlock it with the app? Do you need a particular option? How did you set it up?

    I've tried to do this but failed.

    I just set up the my audi app and linked it to my car with the code and just click the padlock, although I've only ever used it probably twice in 6 months

    If you have SOS then remote locking/unlocking through the myaudi will work, models earlier than 2018 will not...

    Works with MyAudi app on Apple Watch as well...I don't have Android devices but I imagine the same functionality will be there if you have a compatible vehicle

    Yes but you're not in the UK, apologies for not making it clear I was referring to those based here...

    Not a problem, I don't think this Forum should be limited to England, though. ;-)

    You're quite right and my apologies, however, in my defence, I was replying to Trippers post, who lives in the UK...

    On the cars that can be unlocked with the phone, can the phone also be used to switch the engine on or just to open the doors?

    I don't mean starting it remotely but using it like a spare key when the phone is in the car.

    Lock/unlock only.

    As far as I can tell the functionality is via the mobile network rather than the car sensing the presence of the phone in any way

    There is a whole thing about the NFC stuff, myself and @cuke2u had a chat on here about it a while ago. If you have the NFC in the door handles and in the phone box (my S5 does not) then you can download a key to the phone which can be used via NFC to open the car (touching it on the door handles) and start the car (placing it in the phonebox).

    Wasn't an option for the S5/A5 but I think can be an option on the A4.

    Unfortunately NFC locking/unlocking is not a feature with the A4 either. Both cars have the same electronics and parts and do not have the door sensors...

    This works fine from myAudi using my iPhone or my Apple Watch on my 2016 B9 S4.

    What makes you think it won’t work on pre 2018 cars?

    As I already stated, as a non 'bludy foreigner' ;-), and I take this in jest, SOS was not fitted to pre my18 cars in the UK. There were some very early models where, it seems, Audi fitted them by mistake.

    Well I can happily confirm this is all up and running on both my phone and watch. Handy feature for me as I always have to check if I remembered to lock the car

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the Audi Club. Just purchased the Audi A6 2015. I want to take advantage of all the features money can buy and get most out of my Audi. Apologies in advance if this is not the right forum for this, but does anyone know IF I can configure my audi connect app to remote unlock my car? I'm a tech geek and it'll be so cool if I could do that !

    You should really be in the appropriate forum for your A6, however it is unlikely you can have this on a 2015, but I only know A4's....

    It cant be done on the A6 C7, it can be done on the latest A6 model (C8) though.
