As soon as I started my 2018 A5 Cabriolet today, a message appeared in the MMI " Data transfer requires password". I have no idea what data this refers to or what the 'password' might be. Can anyone throw any light on this?
The message disappeared when I selected the map display and has not reappeared since.

I may have found the (an) answer to my own question. I had changed my internet provider and my landline and wife's mobile number were changed too and, when I entered the car my phone automatically connected through blue tooth but with the amended 'contacts' list amounting to 'new data' which needed to be transferred to the MMI. My phone was set to 'sync data' through blue tooth and, when I checked, the new phone numbers had replaced the old numbers. No more password requests since.
Of course, there may be other issues but this seems to have solved the problem so, thanks all the same, Simon.
