    Hi all,
    1st post here..

    I've just got a new car as above with the tech pack and larger screen MMI Nav
    Sadly I don't have a handbook so can't specify which one exactly it is.

    I have a few issues I wonder if anyone could help with.

    I'm onto my 3rd type of MMI interface lead and still can't get anything to connect or be visible.

    Firstly I tried an iPod connector to try and connect my 2nd gen iPod classic but it says iPod not supported, so then I got a MMI/female USB lead in the hope I could just connect the iPod or my phone using that but had the same result. Finally I tried an MMI to Micro USB to try and connect my phone and still nothing.

    They are all genuine Audi leads but get varying messages like the one above or in the case of the latest lead, it says incorrect lead in use or something.

    I'm at a bit of a loss. Ideally I wanted to connect the iPod so I had access to my music, but when that didn't work I thought I could use a phone to store music and connect that.

    The other thing bugging me at the moment is trying to upload my phone contacts to the car. It's a Galaxy S7 and it connected to the MMI via bluetooth and makes and receives calls fine but just no phone book.

    I will probably have more questions as time goes on!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Important first question. Do you have a facelift car or a pre-facelift car? On facelift cars, the AMI gives you two USB ports in the centre armrest, and on pre-facelift you get a single AMI port (not a regular USB). I can't get my old iPod Classic to work in my facelift car - the iPod screen shows the Audi rings, but the car never fully initialises the connection. I imagine the iPod is just too old for my 2016 car to communicate with.

    Assuming you have a pre-facelift, your iPod ought to work - mine did on my 2012 pre-facelift. The trick is in getting the correct cable. Audi made different spec Apple cables with the 30-pin Apple connector - the way to tell them apart is by the coloured collar at the AMI plug end. You can get black, blue and red collar cables with the Apple 30-pin connector. Black collar are for the MMI 2G setup so not suitable. Blue and Red are for 3G / 3G+, with red supporting video function and blue not. If you have an older iPod, the red cable probably won't work as it's a later spec, but the blue cable most likely will (and did in my 2012 car). I still have the cable - if you're in the Stoke area at any point you're welcome to try it.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for that. Pre face lift I guess as it's a single MMI port. I'll check the cables tonight and see what's I've got.
    The iPod one was a freebie from Audi so no loss there.
    The micro USB one I might take back to TPS if I can't get it to work.
    At the moment it does nothing.
    Thanks again

    Well I've pretty much given up on the micro USB for the minute, it connects and charges the phone but won't allow any functionality.
    I Still haven't managed to copy phone book contents across, but the mission for this week is to get them on an SD Card and import that way.
    @MFGF I don't suppose you have the part number for the blue collared iPod connector? I may try and get one that way.

    If anyone can use a red collared version then I may be selling that one on.

    All a lot more complicated than it needs to be isn't it!

    Thanks

    Burton. Good luck. It does all sound awfully complicated. At least in the newer cars it's just a USB port now, so I've managed to avoid all these weird leads with the Audis I've had. Thankfully no Iphones/Ipods too.

    I've got a Samsung S7 too and the phone contacts are just there on my MMI. Are you sure you have the setting right for allowing contacts - I'm sure there is something in the telephone settings for that; have good play in all the menus and settings for telephone/connections. I didn't know you could copy them from an SD card, I hope that can work for you.

    I'm away for a couple of days, but when I get home I will look out the part number on the cable for you.

    A quick look online seems to indicate 4F0051510AG is the number, but I will verify this for you.

    Cheers!

    Another mini update..
    I exported all my contacts from the phone to an sd card as a.vcf file and guess what.... This isn't recognised format! Any clues as to which format this crazy car does like?
    But I have copied a load of music from iTunes onto an SD card and then uploaded them to the jukebox and that does work!

    Not sure this is any help but I have a pre-facelift car with tech pack and my contacts appear no problem. So do the wife's.
    I have a Samsung S6 and she has a Note 3.
    I connect via bluetooth and the contacts are there. I can also use my phone's data connection and share it via bluetooth so the car gets the data it needs for googel earth and traffic info.

    It can definitely be done.

    I can't help thinking it's a setting somewhere.

    I agree, I use an iPhone for work and a Samsung S7 for personal stuff and always used Bluetooth to connect, on pre and post facelift, never had any issues.

    Have you tried deleting the Bluetooth connection and re-pairing? Then you should get the prompt that asks you (on your phone) if you are willing to let the car have access to your contacts.
