the 'some way to hook up an external player' is part of something called the Audi Music Interface and it comes standard on Canadian S5s... there's a slot in the glove box where you can connect audio devices (e.g., USB drives, non-ipod mp3 players, etc) to... the cable is extra though if you can't get your dealer to throw it in.Is either present on Canadian S5s? I don't see any mention of it. It would be a shame to have that awesome stereo and be limited to just the in dash cd player to listen to.
EDIT, sorry I didn't mean MMI... just some way to hook up an external player!
Just to clarify ...Your iPod then goes in the glovebox, although the lead is a dealer-fit item, so make sure your dealer orders the right one in (there are 3 different ones - iPod, USB adn 3.5mm jack I think)
Oh, didn't know there were 2 sorts of USB cable - thanks TXcarguy.Just to clarify ...
There are actually 4 types of AMI adapter cables available. These can be ordered at any time from your dealership's Parts department and swapped out easily with the AMI connector in the glovebox. I use a USB cable for my USB flash drive, but I also have an iPod cable for those times when friends want to listen to their iPod on my B&O system.
Following are the 4 available types of AMI adapter cables:
- MP3 (mini-plug)
oops sorry marbles.. my bad... AMI is not stdard on the S5 (i thought it was part of the B&O, which is standard for S5 in Canada).. i just checked the Cdn sales guide here:I see. It's still not that clear to me as seifufu is reporting that the Audi Music Interface is standard on the S5 for Canada but Navigation is not so what you're saying and he says can't both be true...
