Audi music interface*

Thousands of songs available at your fingertips: the Audi music interface integrates portable media players into the Audi MMI®. You can select artists, albums, tracks or genres with the MMI® controls or the multifunction steering wheel. The system is capable of communicating with a wide range of portable media players and USB storage media

Using selection criteria such as artists, albums, tracks or genres, it is thus possible to navigate easily through the entire music collection on the storage medium with the MMI® controls and the multifunction steering wheel. Your media player remains stowed away in the glove box during the journey, and is connected to the Audi music interface by a cable from Audi Genuine Accessories®. This cable not only transmits the track information and music to the Audi music interface, but also recharges your media player at the same time.

The most important functions of the Audi music interface at a glance:

  • plays all tracks stored on the player (except DRM-protected files)
  • operates the portable terminal device via the MMI® controls and the multifunction steering wheel
  • displays play lists, artists, albums, tracks and genres (if stored on the connected device) on the MMI® display
  • SCAN, MIX/RANDOM and REPEAT
  • track skip in both directions
  • fast forward and reverse
  • power supply via adapter cable

With an optional Bluetooth® adapter from Audi Genuine Accessories® the Audi music interface is also capable of wireless music playback from suitably equipped mobile telephones and media players. Data is transferred using Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP), which requires a terminal device with A2DP capability.

The range of control options available for the media players via the MMI® and multifunction steering wheel depends on the player and adapter used. Exact information on functions and any restrictions that apply is available in the Audi database for mobile devices or from your Audi dealership:
