Song and artist detail on radio

Post by LittlePea » Sun Feb 11, 2018 2:00 pm

Hi,

I’ve recently purchased my Q2 and I can’t figure out how to get the radio to display the now playing song/artist detail? I’ve got the ‘detailed information’ option selected for all my favourite stations, but the only way I can get the info up is if I listen to the radio with radio text on, which is a bit irritating. I’ve looked in the manual and the only thing it seems to suggest is the detailed info option, from what I can see.

Any ideas? Am I totally missing a setting somewhere? This is my first Audi, so it wouldn’t surprise me if I’m doing something wrong!

Thanks :)

I'm also interested in this. In the MMI screen I only get the radio's name and logo.

In my sister's VW Polo with basic black&white radio, she gets the music details...

However, I'm listening radio in DAB format, while she's on FM.

on the screen there is a + on the right, click the MMI button to the right, it will give you a drop down, click the option you want and it will show the details on the screen when you click back to radio.

Thanks CNC but I know that already. What I want is to have this song & artist info PERMANENTLY being shown in the main radio screen. Which apparently is impossible... Other car makers have this feature.

Thailand, what is DAB+ please? My normal DAB doesn’t display anything except the station
Thanks for all your replies on this - further research is also still not giving us a way to do this, a lot of people saying Audi is behind on tech and there isn’t a way to do it except on radio text 😢
