This is an old thread, but I just found it. Anyway, I have a Q7 with 5.5.5 and the ICC is absolutely not on it. It's frustrating, because I live right near it and get pushed in all sorts of odd routes. Are you certain the Q5 version has the ICC? Is it the full run from 270 to 95? Because I definitely don't!

Hello, first time here, I have an Audi A8l with the executive package, Audi offers 2 different cables Blue/Red for the interface so my iPod works, I can only use the blue( audio only) cable. When I try the red it doesn't recognize it! Any updates for this?

Default latest Q5 version?

I have a 2011 Q5 and nav db is at 5.4.7.
So what's the latest version? I called the dealer and they only say the latest is 2012-2013.

thanks.

5.4.7 was what came on our 2011 Q5 and the one update I finally forced them to do was to 5.5.6 - and it wasn't much of an update

Basically, from all I've read, 5.5.5 and version 5.5.6 are the virtually the same with 5.5.6 being dealer updated and 5.5.5 is factory updated...

I would bet 5.5.6 will be the last update since Audi has gone to the audi connect features and will not support older models....

(Not that they really supported anything before )

I too have Garmins that are much more functional than Audi's 2011 or Ford's 2012 factory gps units.....

Just to throw some salt on our MMI Update wounds....
I have a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO (wicked ride too) and I just got a FREE Navigation Update from Ford. The installation was by me for free or at the dealer for free, but they wanted you to drop of your car depending on their workload.

Is the 2013 Q5 Navi any more update-able? What do other car makers do?

Lexus updates their maps once a year in October. Pricing is kind of a rip off IMO at around $300.

On the Q5 if you keep the Audi Connect subscription up to date there isn't a need for the Audi updates since you can access Google info. But that is $300 annually.

Thanks. With Lexus charging $300 a year, all of a sudden the same amount for all the capability that Audi Select gives you is a steal for the same dough.

I had my last Lexus for 3 years and didn't update the maps during that time. I was getting ready to do it when we decided to get the Q5. They list online what's included in each annual update so you can decide it it's worth it. They also have E Destination and Destiination Assist, both subscription based, which were easy to use and very useful.

I agree that Audi Connect offers a lot of capability and we use it quite a bit. Still not sure though if it's worth $30/month though. I have until May to decide.

Just took delivery of my Q5. Love it! Anyhow, the map version loaded on the car is 5.7.3. It appears to be quite up to date, roads changed within the last year or two are updated around my area.

I nearly lost my hat last week when my father brought over his recently purchased CPO 2013 A4 which came loaded with 5.5.5 and did not have my neighbourhood at all...some of the homes were built in 2007. I was ready to lose it on someone but all is good with 5.7.3. Just thought I'd let people know what the latest map is.

Default Annual (nominally)

From my A8 experience with 2G MMI, nominal Audi updates are annual. The underlying supplier for 2G MMI is Navteq. The version number refers to the model year, at least with 2G MMI. Thus my 2006 came with v6, and later got v8 w/ a warranty issue. My experience there was actual changes to the maps/data seemed minimal in practice year to year. Same as my Toyota (Lexus) experience when I bought an updated map disk after four years. Once in a while a freeway ramp I use gets reconstructed or some such, but I rarely see a difference throughout Northern CA, frequently in Tahoe, and to Southern CA all the way out to Colorado as the car has roamed. Pre-web, some of the ancillary POI type data on the disk might have been freshened, but I seldom use that. With the newer "connected" type approaches, not sure how those are really impacted.

I don't know if this has been covered, but how do find what version is loaded? I'm assuming it's found in one of the nav menus? TIA...

Talking to my dealer and Audi NA and Navteq, the response I always get is that "your car was delivered with the latest blah blah blah available". Frustrating.
NAVTEQ is a POS company that need to be put to shame officially. Just get new 2013 Navigation disk for my wife 2004 year build SUV - After install I check build - 2012 June. They change NOTHING and sell as 2013 Navigation disk.
We drive past major intersection, where 6 yrs ago was gas station and now empty lot - yep - navigation show Mobil gas station there.

Actually Navteq does the map updates for many, MANY gps mfg's and for some they are VERY up to date !!!

It all depends on how much and how often the mfg pays navteq ...
Wouldn't you want to get paid for your work ?
Navteq does too

Why I will always be disappointed in any car mfg's updates and keep my Garmins, they get quarterly updates - and they all come from navteq...

I bought my Q5 on 11/10/12 off of the dealers lot. It was delivered to them the day before. I'm not sure of the build date but the nav version is 5.6.5.

I'm not sure if I'll keep the Audi Connect/T Mobile subscription after the trial period ends.

The new nav in the 2013 models should be much improved since it is using Google maps, right?
