Thanks Fredyou will have to read through this topic, starting at the beginning.
after that, you will know that you will have to update the firmware to begin with.
thanks AudiA4AvantIt’s all described in the previous pages, please just read the forum topic from A-Z
I have done what you are doing many times. You have to go into engineering menu(green) and turn on user defined mode and back back out then go to the red enginering mode. Now put the firmware in and go through the update. You dont have to worry about the nose sterio. Just make sure all sterio options are turned off. No need to update the sterio on this. Once it's done then reboot. Then do all the steps again to do the maps software. Once it's done the system will fire up and run the nav. Once it's up and stable it will lock and ask for the security. Already have it ready to push in. Once it asked then push the card in and follow the steps and it will restart. Reboot a final time and your done. it's not hard just watch the video while you are performing the updates and you will be fine. You will brick the system if you do not use legitimate audi software and firmware. Dont try to do it cheep!!! It will brick! Not good. Go slow your first time. take care. I'll try and come back to see if you have questions.MMI 3G Basic navigation 5.28.2 and firmware updates - currently 2019

If your firmware version is bellow K0257 then do K0257 followed by K0260. If you are at K0257 do only K0260.

Here are some of the questions raised by the forum members about the update process that I might failed to explain in the manual.
Q. Do i need VCDS to do the update?
A. No, you need VCDS only to clear some errors after the update but the MMI will function correctly even if you don’t clear them out.
Q. I have a Bang & Olufsen sound system not a Bose. Does this also mean that i need to exclude it?
A. Yes, better not to update the DSP system.
Q. Currently no updates for North America?
A. Not for now.
Q. I have mmi 3g , version p0XXX can i go straight to k0260?
Q. 01043 - Control Module; Incorrect Software Version - How can i solve this ?
A. Restart the MMI and remove the key from ignition then put it back in. The error should change from 01043 - Control Module; Incorrect Software Version to 03276 - Please Check Software Version Management.
Q. What are 03276 and 03175, will they affect the MMI in anyway and how can they be avoided?
A. 03276 - Please Check Software Version Management will appear every time when the software is updated w/o VAS connection to the VW/Audi servers.
03175 - Invalid Data Set will appear when updating the map w/o deleting it first. Sometimes this helps to avoid that error.
They will not affect the functionality or the sound characteristics of the MMI.
Q. Is there a way to use used defined mode w/o "Green Menu"?
A. Yes. In file metainfo2.txt in the root folder if you remove the line "MetafileChecksum=XXXXXX" and add
EnableUserDefinedSWDLMode = "true"
skipMetaCRC = "true"
the you will be able to use the user mode w/o the green menu.
Warning - At no stage I take responsibility of your actions or any of my notes that may mislead you. Therefore, and like my all other documents I say “use at your own risk”.
