Different types of Audi navigation systems have been found depending on the model, the vintage and the car’s equipment. Most of these systems show the initial screen with the name “Audi Multi Media Interface”, and they have a very similar menu appearance. As a result, they are often considered one and the same system. Audi has in its offer several navigation and multimedia systems, such as BNS 4.x, BNS 5.x, MMI 2G Low / Basic, MMI 2G High, MMI 3G Low / Basic, MMI 3G High, MMI 3G + , Audi RMC, RNS-D, RNS-E, RNS-E 2010, Audi Concert, Audi Chorus, Audi Symphony.
Types of Audi navigation systems – how to distinguish MMI 2G, 3G, 3G +, RMC?
The easiest way is to check the software version that is loaded in the system. To do this, enter the car menu by pressing the CAR button, then press SETUP or MENU, then select the “Version” submenu and read the value from the line marked with the letters “SW“.
MMI 2G: SW: XX-XX XX.X.X XXXX
MMI 3G Low/Basic: BNav_XX_XXXXX
MMI 3G High: HNav_XX_XXXXX
MMI 3G+: HN+_XX_XXXXX or HN+R
MMI RMC: RMC_XX_XXXXX
MMI Mib1: MHIG_XX_XXXX
MMI Mib2: MHI2_XX_XXXX
MMI MSTD: MSTD_XX_XXXX
