Awesome video! Great info. One question; what do you have to do to get "aux" to show up on the mmi screen? Any idea if it can work if you have both factory ipod and sat radio, or can it have only aux or sat radio?
Thanks!

You can use NCS expert to Add the AUX , &
yes I am sure you will still have your Sat radio
& ipod as long as you don't remove it ...

PAPER: Thank you for your answer. Since I am a curious individual and you seem like a smart dude I have to ask...Whats the difference between new MMI ASK and mine(2004 old one I guess?) Are you saying that my unit does not support onscreen AUX and My ASK doesn't have the same connector in the back of the unit?
Thank you man

Thank you man
correct the old Pre-FaceLift MMI does not support AUX ,
Neither does the Pre-FaceLift ASK Unit . Your old
ASk & the new ASk Unit do have the same plug , but
the old Ask Unit does not support the AUX feature .

ACE and PAPER here is my two cents.
I respect both of you and the work you have done on this platform. Your immense experience is much appreciated on this forum for most of us who dont have the experience on this platform.

This back and forth on the forum is getting a little out of hand and borders on niggling. Can we at least get a cease and desist from both of you, or better have both of you take this squabble to PM?

I believe it would be much more beneficial to all of us if the two of you squared this away and got along that if the two of you kept this going.

Then again, i am just a dumb newb to the platform so feel free to ignore my efforts to try and reach some resolution to this impasse of a situation.

Definitely a software thing. Aux was introduced in 07 so maybe the early 07s don't have it as well?
