Required Tools:


  • Firmware P5098
  • Virtual Cockpit version 0296 or higher (To check, use OBD11 and navigate to unit 17 for information on VC version and software version. If your number is lower than 0296, you’ll require an update; click here)

To code CarPlay / Android Auto icons to be displayed on the MMI screen (carplay might still work even if they are not available there), you’ll need OBD11.

Installation Process:

  1. MMI Firmware: To begin, ensure that your MMI firmware version is P5098. For detailed installation instructions, please refer to the comprehensive manual provided (click here).
  2. Virtual Cockpit Update: The installation process for the Virtual Cockpit update is similar to that of the firmware update. However, you may encounter an error message such as “error FPK:0 error code 142” or a similar prompt. When prompted to start the update, place the remote key in the proximity area near the side of the steering wheel to enable remote key reading. This step is necessary to confirm the presence of the remote key. Once completed, you can proceed to the next step.
  3. MMI Patching: Now, the MMI requires patching using the provided script. Refer to the detailed instructions available in the manual (click here) for a step-by-step walkthrough.
  4. OBD11 / VCDS Coding: The final step involves coding the MMI, as the Audi Smartphone Interface may not appear in the MMI menu without this step. Follow these instructions to code the MMI successfully:
    • Module: 5F (Information Control Unit)
    • Adaptation
    • Vehicle Configuration
    • MirrorLink = On
    • WiFi_Client_HMI = On
