    Strange that you don't have any bits labelled, they're all labelled on mine.

    Agree it's a bit odd, you'd think it would effect everyone. Support acknowledges it is an issue, but they say they are waiting on Audi.

    so does anyone have any codings to add to this thread? just read through it and i can only see one kind soul posting about how to activate lane assist. there must be others. :)

    also, wouldn't it be a good idea to move this thread to a more generic modifications subforum rather than the A4 one given that it is relevant for many models.

    I have just taken delivery of an A4 S Line Avant and would like to activate the maps in the DIS what is the cheapest and easiest way to do this?

    Is there anywhere in Scotland I can pay to have this done as I am not tech minded?

    Thanks

    Obdeleven is the cheapest way to do it yourself. About 55 quid with the licence. (PRO)

    So do AUDI know that any tinkering has been done when they service the vehicle and would it invalidate a warranty ? Assuming that the norm is to set to factory settings before servicing etc ??

    When mine when in to get the software updated to fix the POI issue the master tech said he had not touched the coding that had been altered. So they are aware of you change it, and depending on the tech as to whether they wipe it or not!

    Maybe that's why they are asking? It's good if they accept owners will be making these sort of mods...

    I found it pretty straight forward following the walk-through steps others have posted.

    Does anyone have a list of tweaks available now for each of the systems such as vagcom, odbeleven and carista? I'm thinking about getting someone up to make some tweaks if what I want is possible

    Not cheap for what sounds like a one-use device.

    Great info. Have made both changes using this and works as expected..

    I do however appear to have lost Google Earth view since from the Nav. The selection is grayed out, although it can be selected, and appears to load it never displays the image. Have you noticed this as an issue?

    I don't tend to use it anyway, but, would like to know if this coding has affected it. I tried returning back to original coding but its the same.

    I take it that the process is just plug in the device to the OBD socket, let it do its thing, remove and thats it?

    Correct, it takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish.

    I have it in my car but really I can work out what speed I should be doing by using my eyes on the road ahead...

    Hi, by any chance do you know how to enable the map display in the dashboard, using VCDS?
    For that matter, does any one else know how?

    Can anyone tell me does lane assist work with presence the one that comes with all models with no virtual cockpit. Have tried twice and just get warnings on the dash. Luckily enough I can reverse code these out. The auto dip headlights and the needle sweep work brilliantly.

    I have it working on mine. I do have the 7" DIS display but not virtual cockpit.
    I got errors to begin with but toggling the option off then on resolved.

    Thanks for the clarification will just keep trying. Definitely got something different this time though it brought up the side sense mirror in the dash.

    Are you using VCDS or ODBEleven.
    If you are getting the side assist error, you may have incorrectly activated the below?

    17 - Dash Board:

    Lane Assistant>Active | Byte 4>Bit 6
    Lane Change Assistant>Active | Byte 5>Bit 3 - This should only be on if you have Audi Side Assist (blind spot monitor).

    Obdeleven. I must have put on side assist thus tune using different instructions. Obdeleven is a great piece of kit

    Tried again getting presence error and Lane assistance error on the dash. It shows on mmi but as unavailable same as presence. But when I was uncoding it I looked up and i was able to select options in lane assistance. Its a funny one. Will try again later on in the week.

    Hi mate, I have also managed to enable the map on my non-vc, but like you I also have lost the google view.
    Have you managed to fix this?

    Tried going over again I can't get Lane assistance going. Again when uncoding I have Lane assistance options. It's a funny one.

    I struggled with it on mine, kept getting the errors, I seem to remember the steps out there had a bit activation which relates to side assist that you don't want to enable, and enable/disable it a few times after finishing. If you post me the steps your following i'll read through and see if I can remember. Mine is the basic Mono display.
