May dig it out and take a look - it drove me insane before tho, 3 times it would no longer turn on and required a full factory reset, and at that point i gave up on it.Jose, the Galaxy S3 has had a significant s/w update in the form of the Jelly Bean 4.3 upgrade it is really quite resonably robust based on the last couple of weeks use. Try updating the phone via Samsung Kies and see what you get?
Android - Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall reading that Harman-Becker who designed the Audi 3G MMI navigation system used a heavily doctored version of Android as the foundation. The system certainly uses 2 Nvidia processors, one is a Tegra chip and does the 3D map graphics and the other looks after the display of the car systems. Those of us who have Mobile Connect High as an option can vouch for the seamless Google Earth/Internet access integration...especially via the S3.
Thanks Jose, the Android 4.3 update is a whopping 450mb so a cable connection is quicker. Aside from forgetting its relationship with the SQ and needing a reboot occasionally to be reminded my S3 has been rock-solid for the last 2 years, my wife has one too with the same experience. The 4.3 update really helps on the battery management front too.May dig it out and take a look - it drove me insane before tho, 3 times it would no longer turn on and required a full factory reset, and at that point i gave up on it.
The MMI is almost certainly based on Linux/Unix in some form - basically everything is, from your Sky box to the Playstation to of course Android - Linux is based on Unix, on which Apple's OSX/iOS is based...
If Microsoft had butted out 30 years ago it would a lot easier to get everything working together as everything would be Unix based! Techno rant over!
Quick google confirms...
The latest 3G MMI system uses nVidia Tegra based hardware, running a OS called QNX, which is basically like unix for embedded systems. The new Audi A3 actually has the hardware on a removable blade for post-purchase telematics upgrades. Very forward-looking, IMO.
I had an iPhone app to remotely lock/unlock/turn climate control on/give GPS location etc for my BMW. Audi is kinda behind 5 years in this area.
