    Just wondering why Audi cannot update 2016 models, when ford can

    https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...-vehicles.html

    Would like to see update for 2016 Audi S6 and other models.

    Hi, at this time, it is undetermined if this feature will be implemented into previous model years as a software update. With that being said, I will share your interest in this technology with the appropriate resources.

    Thank you for the quick response. I am hoping that Audi will look to bring the feature to 2016 models where MMI hardware is not different hardware than 2017 models.

    I would gladly pay for such an upgrade. Even if it meant buying an entirely new head unit. Obviously I'd prefer to pay the least possible but there may be technical restrictions in our head units. The processor itself seems like it would be too slow to process Android Auto.

    I posted specifically because the 2016 and 2017 S6 use the same MIB-2 with Tegra 3 quad core processor

    From what I have been able to find there is no technical difference from a hardware standpoint.

    Has anyone gotten any more info on this? This is the mod I am most interested in. I heard reports of a leaked firmware and there are aftermarket solutions but I would like the factory integration feel.

    Just so everyone is aware as of right now there is no new additional information or updates to share on this topic. My predecessor was able to share the feedback with our product support teams who communicate with Germany on a regular basis so it is in the right hands.
