Thread: SQ2 - MMI Email/Txt?

    Default SQ2 - MMI Email/Txt?

    Hey all.

    Just took delivery of a new SQ2.

    Connecting up phone doesn't allow email or text.

    Sales rep's answer is "With regards to the MMI to phones and messages the car does not allow messaging/emails to work. This is due to restrictions on some models in Australia"

    Does this sound right? Never had an issue with other makes....

    A quick search in google found this:

    Message Function | Audi Connect Plus | Audi Australia

    Audi_Q2_SQ2_Specification_Guide_MY21_310321.pdf

    MMI navigation functional features may differ or not be available for the Australian market. Please refer to your Audi dealer for up-to-date information

    Doesn't seem to be much other info out there... Maybe try ringing another dealer/or service dept to see what they say (or somebody else chime up with useful information!)

    Congrats on the new SQ2 cbjb18.

    Can you confirm if you've enabled the 'Show Notifications' in the bluetooth device settings on your phone handset?

    Thanks Alister - yes have ensured "show Notifications" is enabled and tried two different messaging apps on the Samsung Note10....

    but no luck.

    doubt it could be compliance related given last few BMW's have all been fine...

    Further to this issue, so disappointed with the interface in this brand new SQ2.

    Car runs great - but the MMI etc is terrible.

    Nav is buggy and difficult to use, the Android Airplay (inexplicably no bluetooth connection!) - also doesn't work at all. Just displays "Check your phone for instructions"... which there are none.

    Such a letdown compared to the BMW330i I replaced it with which even with 5 year old tech was better. Also took delivery of a new X3 today and the contrast in how easy it was to connect and the features is extraordinary....

    Anyhow - at least it drives well!

    Agree that the infotainment tech in the BMWs (iDrive) is leaps and bounds ahead of Audi's (even their latest gen stuff).

    Maybe that's partly because all Beemer X series are made in America.
    2018 S4 with Apple CarPlay and wirelessly enabled presets and reads texts and facilitates dictated responses.
    Thank goodness that MMI facility doesn't allow emails into the car though.
