hi all,
wondering if there is anyone local irvine (ayrshire) who can help me with a few things.
bought my a5 2010 4 months ago and no sat nav. i can't access the green screen and i would rather someone who knew what they were doing could help i love my car and don't want to break anything by
trying to fix myself and dealers are too expensive plus i'd like to learn more about my car as it's my first Audi but probably never going to be the only one.
i'd be grateful for any help.
i have downloaded vacs and i'm waiting on cable arriving as i plan on trying it myself if i can't get help. just so many threads on here it's hard to get the right info.
thanks in advance for any help guys

Bit far away from you to help. But there's plenty of guides online as to how to get the green menu up

I wanted folding mirrors, you need vcds to code it - not difficult to do. But you need the correct mirrors and i think the correct door module. So it's possible but not as simple or as cheap as coding them in. What engineering menu are you talking about sorry?

Is it a concert? Green menu is for MMI if I recall correctly...

Your mirrors should be programmable using the car menu unless someone has messed things up in the software. The bigger likelihood is that you don't have the hardware to fold the mirrors. If you register with myaudi, or run a check on the boot options sticker, you should be able to check if you have the right hardware.

Good question. But it
Read the "no sat nav" as being it just needs installing, meaning he has some sort of mmi

HOWDY here are some menu buttons i got when i first came on this forum
reboot MMI - setup + main button + top right button
engineer menu - setup + return (tried this this morning worked but said not initialised so i guess i need to set it up via vcds)
green menu - setup + car ( can't get this one to work yet)
