My father is buying a 55 (2005)plate A6 with MMI (7†colour screen), and I have a few questions.

1. What is the latest version of the MMI software for the A6, and how is this updated?
2. Is there any links for coding of the MMI system
3. I was thinking about the Dension Gateway 500 for the IPod, but can the MMI interface control the Ipod
4. I have heard that Audi also make an IPod interface, but is this better than the Denison and can it the Audi unit be retrofitted?

Thanks for any help and information

The Audi Music Interface AMI is supposed to be a much better fit than the Dension. At least in Germany there will be an upgrade kit available in Spring 2007: http://www.fourtitude.com/news/publish/Features/printer_2601.shtml

The MMI is updated online, parts of it can be updated via CD-ROM. The version is different based on the region you live in, in Europe/Germany it's 2860. There's not much info in English about the coding but if you can read German, this might give you some ideas: http://de.openobd.org/audi/a6_4f.htm

Thanks for the information.

I will make sure they update the MMI system to the latest version before the car is collected. For some reason though the AMI system was already released.

I wasn't aware that AMI was available yet.

Maybe spring time as a retrofit, but will require an MMI upgrade.

I think the minimum you should be upgraded to is 2120.

The Dealer TMC update will do this for you.

Some of the updates for the Audi MMI system, require updates from Audi in germany. Which can only ben done via your dealer. But some MMI updates are done via an update CD-ROM.

TMC update requires the MMI update and a new DVD "AF" disk.

Tried to update the system last night, but nothing happened. I was using an CD-RW disk which I’m not sure if the drive is capable of reading, so I will try a CD-R tonight and see what happens. Also is it OK to have the Dension gateway connected during the upgrade, Or should I remove it?

Same for me, no update with a copy disk 2120 or a factory update disk 3840. As for the Ipod interface, well if you set the switch to service mode and restart the car, you should only see the CD changer. CD1-6
