By having Basic Navigation System (BNS) instead of the Radio Navigation System (RNS). That's the CD based DIS only navigation where the unit sits in your trunk.

I have that menu on my S8 and dont have BNS. There is a menu button on my console for the DIS to set things up for the computer.

This picture was actually taken from a b7 2005.5 A4. I didnt think there was a BNS option for it.

OK, ok, the newest Audi models (I have seen this in a A3 8P and A4 B7 so far) allow several settings to be modified via DIS which can only be modified via VAG-COM in earlier models. The A8 might be different since it has an advanced CAN for quite a while now. In the A3 I drove recently I could change the instrument cluster to US units and English US (was German/metric when I drove it). So yes, you may have this menu even without the BNS but the BNS was the first device configured through the DIS and a multi purpose switch near the e-brake.

How is it a triggered on the new cars? Is it a function of the Multifunction steering wheel?

In the A3 I had it as the reset button on the wiper switch, the one which usually switches between FIS1, FIS2, Navi and Off or resets a value. In the A3 it was FIS, Setup and Off. Can't remember how it was in the B7...
