    Audi navigation TMC on firmware 5570

    Hi,

    I recently updated my MMI to 5570 (Europe version) because the CD images for the North American update I found online weren't working and if I waited to go to the dealer, my battery would have died (I got my car stuck on bootloader mode, yes I'm stupid). I only updated the first CD for 5570 and not the 2nd or 3rd - I need to buy more blank CD-R's...

    Note - I am not trying to be cheap, I literally had no other choice but to burn the CD's on my own. I messed it up at 11 PM, and didn't have the tools to disconnect my battery nor did I want to do that. And unplugging the fuse didn't work (are Canadian fuses hooked up differently?) but I digress.

    Now, "TMC" is enabled in my car. However I don't have satellite radio so I have icons on my GPS that don't mean anything. No setting I can change on the MMI or from the hidden menu or from VAGCOM seem to take away these icons.

    Does anyone know what I can do to fix the problem? Should I get the latest North American firmware to flash over the European firmware? Or should I update the maps from 2012-13 to 2014-15?

    My car: 2009 B8 A4 with 2G MMI (navigation maps loaded in trunk of car)

    Not that I know how to add the SAT Radio to a RoW Firmware - but as the Update goes:

    CD1 will update MMI to 5.1.50 (which is the version needed to update to 5.5.70)
    CD2 will update the Bluetooth module (need to be run twice)
    CD3 will after MMI has version 5.1.50 update MMI to 5.5.70

    TMC is short for "Traffic Message Channel" which is broadcasted from Radio Stations that support it.

    You should be able to add/remove the POI (Points of Interests) by going into "NAV => Setup => Map content" - like below description from the "Infotainment/MMI - Operating Manual"

    as far as TMC, its very different in the USA vs Europe.

    In Europe it's transmitted by local FM radio stations.
    In USA it's from Sirius satellite radio

    There is a setting in the MMI hidden menu to change the TMC source, at least on B8.5. I have no idea where I saw it but it's there somewhere.

    EDIT: I think it was in the hidden menu... maybe in VCDS.... I tried enabling "TMC Pro" before I understood the Pro thing is only for Europe.

    I know I'm digging up an old thread, but did you ever manage to get TMC working on your Audi? I'm from Toronto too, actually not far from your GPS screenshots lol.
