Greetings! I am looking to enable the hidden menu on my 2018 Audi S5 Sportback and am having issues locating instructions relevant to my model/year. The RT forum entries and A50C forum entries provide instructions for older generations of MMI (e.g. MMI 3G), but the older instructions don't apply to my car. While VCDS lets me interact with the 5F module, there is no "Channel 6" in Adaptation to enable as there is on previous generation vehicles with MMI 3G. Does anyone have instructions that include the name of the channel that needs to be enabled? Thanks for any advice! ~Mike


I've included the VCDS scan of my car below:

This is an MIB2 unit. There is a developer mode adaption channel to enable the green engineering menu.

Thanks! I found the "developer mode" and was able to change it. Now I'm looking for instructions on how to access the green menu.

For anyone looking for detailed instructions, I offer them below...

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENABLING DEVELOPER MODE
From VCDS, I selected module 5F-Information Elect. and then selected "Security Access-16" where the security key (key = "S12345" is shown in VCDS). After that, I selected Adaptation-10 which is where I found the adaptation channel that must be activated: IDE02122-Developer Mode.

RED ENGINEERING MENU
To enter the menu: To access the menu, press and hold the NAV/MAP rocker switch followed immediately by pressing and holding MEDIA rocker switch. Hold both NAV/MAP and MEDIA for about 5 seconds at which time the red menu displays.
To exit the menu: Repeat the same sequence as for entering the menu

I found another post that mentioned about how to access the GREEN ENGINEERING MENU with vehicles with MIB2.

GREEN ENGINEERING MENU:
To enter the menu: press and continue to hold the NAV/MAP rocker switch followed immediately by pressing and holding the RADIO rocker switch for about 5 seconds.
To exit the menu: Repeat the same sequence as for entering this menu

For completeness reasons:

The green hidden menu is accessed in another way on the newer/facelifted cars:
NAV/MAP (or CAR) + RADIO

For the red engineering menu it's:
NAV/MAP (or CAR) + MEDIA


Note: first press NAV/MAP (or CAR) and then press the second button (MEDIA/RADIO). Hold both for about five seconds and then let go. Menu should start.
GEM and REM of course provide different functionality.

Anybody figured how to enable Developer mode with VCDS ? i tried SA 20103 which is accepted, but enabling Developer mode - > OUT OF RANGE
SA: S12345 is incorrect in 5F.

I have an Audi A5 2018 Sportsback

Only with Engineer Session possible. But why you need GEM ? You can`t do anything in it. It`s different to the old MMI3G Gen Nav System

Oh i had no idea, i am in the process of retrofitting the 360 topview camera (from the rearview camera) on the Audi A5 Sportsback, and i wanted to explore the coding possibilities.

Thanks for the info!

Then you can quit your research in activate GEM. You'll need adaptions, dataset so on
