MMI Firmware

So if you meet all requirements, we can start 🙂 First of all need to update MMI firmware version to be P5098.

I have created very detailed installation manual so will not repeat it here, please jump to this manual (click).

Virtual Cockpit update

Installation looks the same as the firmware update, however you might see error “error FPK:0 error code 142 ” or similar.. Once you hit start update place the remote key to the proximity area for reading remote key on side of steering wheel. The update wants to make sure that you have the remote key.

once it is done, you can jump to another step.
