    Audi MMI is sooo frustrating!!

    Is it just me who finds the audi MMI unintuitive to use? I have had my car 2 months now and i still find navigation app so difficult to use. I work in the digital space so understand what makes good a user experience better than most.

    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

    This aside loving my car tho

    I had the issue with the phone speakers playing, rather than than car. I updated the software in the Iphone and the next time around it worked fine.

    I found it pretty easy to use once you learn the layout. Never had that issue with the phone.

    I actually like the MMI from the R8.
    Compare it to the new Huracan and the R8 is light years ahead of the Lambo. The Lambo one is frustratingcand less features.

    Agreed with the above confusing at first but easy after you get used to but not the best system out there.

    Better than the system in my 2018 E63S. Mercedes is the worst for MMI.

    I've had three Audis with this system total now. Prefer it over most brands.

    Im with you, the MMI is not intuitive and pretty buggy (this may be an update issues we'll see) I've used MMI, my wifes Merc and i-drive and somehow I prefer i-drive.

    Having three Audis, I no longer have to think about it. It's second nature at this point. Also, having CarPlay on two of three just gives me even more ways to interface with the system (Waze, Apple Maps, etc.). Most of the time I'm either using voice recognition, handwriting recognition, or the myAudi app to push addresses to all my cars. Using the Map/Nav toggle will always shortcut you straight to the application. I can't think of a more advanced system out there.

    Hamd down BMW's idrive is THE best system of any manufacturer, its lightyears ahead in design, usability and functional. Personally im not a fan of the MMI even in the Gen2 but it is still far better than Mercedes and others so isnt all bad
