    how to turn off engine without turning off music ?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    For traditional key, you can turn the ignition to "ACC" to shut the engine off while keep all the accessories on. With this new key, I don't see how to do it. When you pushed the key to stop the engine, everything is shut off including the music.

    Another interesting thing is that one day, I copied all my music to an SD card, and inserted it into the SD slot, AMI automatically started to play music. Since I didn't bring the key with me, I can't shut off the music !
    (the volume button can only mute the music)

    I have to go back to my room to get the key and push it twice (turn on and shut off)

    i don't think you can go from ignition to just music,
    but you can NOT put your foot on the brake & push the key in just to get the ACC mode.
    AFAIK, you have to turn it off then on again

    I do this a lot...if there's a way, someone lemme know.

    i think you can turn the stereo on and off just my pressing the power/volume bottom even if the key is not in the ignition. i know i can on my b6, im assuming the b8 would have the same feature..

    Re: how to turn off engine without turning off music ?

    Yeah I am kinda annoyed with it. Every time I wait to pick up some one, I have to turn off the engine, then press the power on on the music. Also One thing I noticed is If I am connect to my Bluetooth phone and speaking, it wont get disconnected when I push the ignition key to turn off the engine.

    Push and hold the volume button -- it will shut the system off. Short press mutes, long press powers off.

    assuming it's the same as ours -- when programming my parents bluetooth on their XJ , the manual said that bluetooth will stay active for 5 minutes after ignition is shut off.

    same here, guess we're lucky. my bluetooth also works through the car with the ignition off and key in but transfers to my phone when the key fob is removed

    It sound like
    Without NAV music will turn off when engine is stopped.
    With NAV, music will stay on until key is pulled out.

    That is correct-- that's how it is on the B8. Just hit the button- no keys required. Then just hold the button in to turn it off.

    Re: how to turn off engine without turning off music ?

    If you turn off the car and turn the radio on, won't it turn off when you open the door?

    Re: how to turn off engine without turning off music ?

    I have a 2010 with the start button, and when I turn off the engine my audi also cuts off. It's annoying, I wish it would stay on. There's often times when I park and I just want to finish listening to a podcast or something.

    The music stays on after I turn off the car until I open the door or manually power it off.

    Mine works the same way. But it will only stay on for 10 minutes if it receives no user input. That time delay can be modified in the VAG-COM-activated hidden menu.

    curse you, navboy...
    i'll get you for this.

    seriously though, a VAG-COM to enable this on us non-navvys would be pretty good in my books.

    Yes, this is what I've read in some other thread as well.

    There is no real solution for those who don't have Nav, it seems.
