View Full Version : Sat Nav Problem

My Sat Nav (the full disk-based one that came with the Technology Pack) does not seem to remember my "favourite" destinations!

I programmed a few in, and it saved them for the day, but when going to choose one the next day, they had all vanished! This has happened a few times now... It does remember previous destinations, and it remembers where my Home location is, but that's all.

Anyone else encountered this, on any Audi system?

Did you have a phone connected at the time you saved them by any chance?

Hi! I usually have my iPhone or work Blackberry connected... Do I sense an issue here?

Nope no issue - although the destinations saved will appear dependant on which phone was connected at the time of saving.

Example - if your iPhone was connected when the destinations were saved then they are matched to the phone so when you connect your blackberry they wont appear as they are paired to the iPhone.

I (think) that's how it works ;)

Crikey! That's an interesting development - I'll try putting my other phone in... Top tip!

So am I better off not connecting any phones when inputting favourites? I.e. will they then be visible to all phones then?

Not sure on that but try it anyway - I remember seeing this somewhere else on the forum so it must be a MMI-wide thing.

Although it doesn't happen on my 2G car.

Well, I connected my iPhone up.... and the Favourites appeared..... Then disconnected it, and re-connected my Blackberry, and a slightly different set of Favourites appeared (Probably from my second attempt at putting them in)

So it would seem that, as you said, each phone has a set of Favourites stored against it on the MMI system. Disconnecting all phones results in no Favourites at all showing. I guess the next step would be to add some Favourites when no phones are connected...?

Yep try saving them with no phones connected then connect one and see what happens ;)

Least theres nothing wrong! :D

Well thanks for the suggestion though - I had spoken with Leeds Audi, and they said they had no idea, and to bring the car in for a check-over!

I suppose it makes sort of sense, to have your favourite destinations linked to the "driver" who has their phone plugged in.... but I would have thought that Sat Nav would be independent of driver - I can imagine future rows breaking out with the Mrs e.g. "The destination is on Favourites", No it isn't, Yes it is etc etc :biglaugh:

Ah well, you could just save destinations to both phones to get around that and again with your OH's phone too.

I suppose I only go to certain places with Work Phone on, and others when "off duty", so I guess the overlap will be minimal!

Thanks for your help though - the manual makes absolutely no mention of this "feature"

My car is an Audi Q3 (UK model, 2016) and navigation maps (sd card) do not include Cyprus. Is there any solution for this? I imported the car in Cyprus and I have all Europe maps except Cyprus.
Thank you.
