Default Impressed with MMI (obviously a newb)

As I was driving the S4 today the low fuel warning came on and the MMI promptly asked whether I'd like guidance to a nearby gas station. That's the first experience I had with this and was pretty impressed as it showed a list of gas stations immediately. Just the little things like this is what sets this system apart IMHO. None of my previous NAV systems did this. I suppose this has probably been part of Audi's MMI for a while now. It certainly isn't in my older '06 MMI, LOL.

It's strange, Timmay, that after having read about this feature I have been looking forward (if that is the appropriate term) to my first experience of almost running out of fuel...just to tick that box of having experienced the new S4 features to the full.

I have slightly less positive sense of expectation about the space saver spare.

My 2011 A5 didn't have this, but my 2014 RS5 does. There is a toggle option in Nav settings to prompt this when low on fuel.

Question is: did it route you to a Top Tier gas station?

LOL Hell no. It sends you to the closest gas station, even if it's some nasty place in a ghetto.

Haha, I see. I thought you were implying something about the space saver and MMI system so I was thrown off a bit. Well you're not in the Outback now are you?!?
