    I like it. More advanced than Porsche. The electronics at least.
    Nav is simple - push the speaker button and say 'take me to address'. Done.
    Or say 'OK google, take me to address'. Uses Waze.

    Re: Audi MMI is sooo frustrating!!

    I'm not a fan of the Audi system at all. I find it confused and odd the way there are different ways to do the same thing, but that not every option comes up if you use the wrong method of accessing each menu. I posted about this on here a while ago.

    I personally much prefer having a central screen also, so that a passenger can fiddle about with things like sat nav etc while I'm driving. I'm sure the more you use it the easier it becomes but I don't get to drive mine that often. It seems every time I get in I have to relearn it again. I don't have this problem in any other car, so I agree with the OT.

    I am also having a really annoying issue where If I plug my phone (iPhone) into the USB port to charge it the music I am playing thru my phone uses my phones speakers and not the cars [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.r8talk.com/forums/images/smilies/frown.gif[/IMG]

    This aside loving my car tho [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.r8talk.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
    I found once I spent a couple months in the car I love the MMI.

    Easy, one screen, fast, and plenty of info.

    Just take the time to learn it.

    Sit in your garage in the car and mess with it while you aren't driving. Too many people only try to learn the system while driving. Seriously - learn it and you'll appreciate it's simplicity and speed.

    I don't see how anyone can have an issue with it once u properly take time to learn it. It's so simple.

    This is exactly how I feel. I do like the Idrive system. I even like the Mercedes interface more than the MMI. One thing tho, the new MB UI in the 18+ S-class is much more work to use than the one in 14-17.

    I didn’t drive the r8 for a couple weeks and definitely had to get acclimated again. CarPlay does make it a little better to use.

    I'm in the same boat! I use my car for high days and holidays only. Every time I get in it, I need to re-learn the MMI all over again. It is not user friendly imo at all, and the lack of a centre screen (although I also like the clean dash design) means that my wife never see's what track is playing, or able to enter sat nav info on the fly. The virtual ****pit is great, but why can't it be shared with the passenger? Just seems a bit daft in lack of practicality.

    That V10 sure makes up for a lot :-D
    The voices made me do it
