MMI Reboot

Sometimes the changes require the MMI to be rebooted (like a 3 finger salute on a computer) for changes to show up/take effect. Switching the ignition off/on isnt enough

In the Q7 (4M) a 3 Finger salute is done by holding the Nav and Radio Buttons “up” and then pressing the main rotary knob. This will cause the MMI to do a quick reboot.

Note: Yes, you can do this while driving.

Lock/Unlock “Chirp”
Description: For Q7 (4M) cars in the USA, when you lock the car, you will hear a single or double “chirp” (from a second sounder, not the horn). This is a good audible confirmation that the car is locked. This coding enables lock chirp on Non-USA cars but also enables an “unlock” chirp if/when the car is unlocked.
Notes: There are many options to configure including how long the chirps are, whether you want single or double chirps for lock/unlock as well as updating the indicator flashes to match the number of chirps. There is both Long Coding & Adaption Changes for this modification.
Usage: Once coded it will work immediately on lock/unlock. In addition, if you lock the car (if you have Advanced Key) using the padlock button on the trunk, the chirp will sound when the trunk is fully engaged. You can also turn off the “Chirp” via the MMI under Car / Vehicle Settings / Central Locking
Risk: Medium / High (Depending on number of options you change). Please note there are a lot of combinations below so please GO SLOWLY.

Usage: None. Will turn off the camera screen on the MMI at a higher speed than default. You can also press the Parking camera button on the dash while slowing down to a junction for viewing if required
Risk: Low

Enable Easy Entry for Drivers Seat

Description: By Default Q7 (4M) cars that have the electric steering column option, the drivers seat will move back automatically when the car is turned off and the drivers door is opened to allow easy exit of the vehicle. In addition, when unlocking the car and opening the drivers door the drivers seat will move back to allow easy entry and upon starting the car the seat will move forward back to the last position. If you have Convenience/Advanced Key and Driver Memory seats then when you start the car the seat will move to whatever memory recall is stored on the key used to unlock the car (linked with button 1 or 2 of the driver memory seat buttons in the door trim). This change enables this feature when the electric steering column is not installed.
Notes: This has not been tested on a Q7 4M without driver memory seat buttons, but it should work. Also, you may find the Easy Entry option “greyed out” in the mmi. If so, lock the car, wait 30 seconds then unlock and try the menu option again.
Usage: Once configured get out at lock the car and wait 30 seconds, go back into car and start electrics, you should see Easy Entry option under “Vehicle Settings / Seats / Drivers Seat”. Make sure its ticked.
Risk: Low.
