Hi,

Hope someone can help, as I can't seem to find an answer to this one..

I've read that the S5 has a button on the seats which assists passenger entry by moving the seat far forward with one touch.

Is this also true of the A5's electric seats?

How long does it take for the seats to go forward when pressed?
How about the other direction? Does it return the seat directly to the previous setting once the seat is dropped down again?

Thanks!

Yes, this is also true for A5 (at least in Sweden).

I got this on my 3.0 TDI.

If the seat back is pushed forward and the button on the seat is clicked, the seat will automatically lower and move to the full front position. This takes approx 5-7 seconds.

It is, however, not automatic on its way back. Instead, you need to hold the button pressed continuously to get the seat back.

Hope this helps :)

Note that when returning the seat to it's previous position you need to push the seatback back first then hold down the "back" button. It will stop in the seat's last position. If you press "back" again it will go even further back.

I've also noticed (whilst playing in the back - what a kid) that the seat also moves up and down a little to aid entry/exit.

Have you also found the options in the MMI which allow you to automatically align the passenger seat with the driver's seat (symmetry)? My car doesn't have seat memory but does have this. There is also another feature I can't quite work out and can't remember the name of but it seems to move the passenger seat backwards for some reason (I was kind of expecting it to be the reverse mirror function referred to in other posts so was really surprised when the seat started moving rather than the passenger side mirror).

I can't see why you would need a seat symmetry setting!?

..maybe it's for waking up passengers who are sleeping with the seat full back and reclined :D

Actually, for certain drivers (like me :D), it is used to "reset" the passenger seat after someone has adjusted it all crazy (backward or forward) to make the seat line up with the driver's seat...purely aesthetics...but I like it!!

I guess the main reason for symmetry is to reset the passenger seat after a passenger has left... say, you usually drive alone and then you pick up a passenger that adjusts the seat. Symmetry restores symm... harmony when the passenger is gone. :)

I guess the other reason would be to allow the driver to set a good seating position on the drivers seat and the copy that to the passengers seat as a sort of default setting.
