What does the firmware in the car affect?
First of all, it is worth pointing out that it can effectively free you from Bluetooth wireless connectivity problems. It often happened that in older MMI versions the vehicle encountered problems with the functioning of the wireless communication module in the phone.
It could happen that the phone would disconnect from time to time, or that the sound quality was very poor, so that using navigation, talking on the speakerphone, or streaming music cost you a lot of nerves and gave you very little pleasure in return.
The problem could concern Apple Car and Android Auto applications, which are two of the most popular platforms that help millions of drivers around the world – including the United States, Canada and Great Britain – safely reach their destinations every day.
After updating the firmware, the wireless module in the vast majority of cases works much better and more stable. This is estimated to be the most effective method to quickly fix problems that are not caused by hardware, but by software.
Which areas of a car’s operation are affected by an MMI update?
There are many of them. To begin with, it is necessary to mention the influence of the MMI update on the functioning of the music interface. Bluetooth wireless connectivity plays a key role here, which can also be successfully fixed by updating the car’s software.
If you have an older version of Audi vehicle, then you should definitely also consider getting a Bluetooth adapter from Audi. It’s a very easy way to quickly enrich your vehicle with many innovative features that will take your driving experience to a whole new level.
You can find both 2G and 3G interfaces in the market. They differ in many functions. Moreover, different modules are compatible with different vehicles from this manufacturer. Fortunately, their installation and configuration is extremely simple and takes only a few moments.
How to install BT module?
You need to properly connect the device. On the vehicle screen, go to the Media tab and then the Source tab. The AUX module supports line input, and Bluetooth is responsible, for example, for wireless music transmission. You should also remember that AUX does not control external devices. This is a very important point.
The default device pairing password is “1234”. Also, keep in mind that only one additional device can be connected to the Audi’s MMI installation. The kit will include a Bluetooth module, a cable with RCA input, an RCA to AUX converter and a dedicated fiber optic cable.
