HOW TO - Enable Video In Motion (VIM)

HOW TO - Enable Video In Motion (VIM)

Postby Birchall » Tue May 01, 2012 9:18 pm

My official VCDS cable just arrived today.

Since we have four Audis in the family - 3 A2s (AMAZING cars) plus my A1 (also AMAZING) it was worth the £264.

But now I am even happier, it took me 5 minutes to disable the Video In Motion (I have a cowl that I made that prevents me from seeing the screen, but my wife can watch the end of Coronation square farm (or whatever it is!))

I also managed to get the auto dipping mirror on reverse to work (2 minutes).

I plan to play a bit more (already have the "Swoosh" done using my "other cable").

But these cables are fantastic.

I was shocked !!! I had heard that it was not really possible, but I just googled and found

http://trick77.com/tools/mmi3g_vimcode.php

The instructions worked perfectly and are so easy.

Try it and you will be surprised too, I thought it was near on impossible!!!

The only problem I had was how to reset the MMI, on the A1 it is different to the instructions, but that was easy to find..

It is on the VCDS screen when you follow the instructions, you just copy that in to the code generator on that site and it gives you the right code to use.

Simples!!!

The "not genuine" cables are always likely to be second best, and I did not like all of the messing with the dates and preventing updates. but £264 is a lot of money for many people, so they are very tempting.

So I am happy now and I know that if I have any problems with the software or cable I can get free support!!!

I even had trouble setting the reversing mirror option with the "other" cable.

Have fun!!!
