Different types of Audi navigation systems have been found depending on the model, the vintage and the car’s equipment. Most of these systems show the initial screen with the name “Audi Multi Media Interface”, and they have a very similar menu appearance. As a result, they are often considered one and the same system.
Audi has in offer several navigation and multimedia systems, such as BNS 4.x, BNS 5.x, MMI 2G Low / Basic, MMI 2G High, MMI 3G Low / Basic, MMI 3G High, MMI 3G + , Audi RMC, RNS-D, RNS-E, RNS-E 2010, Audi Concert, Audi Chorus, Audi Symphony.

The easiest way is to check the software version that is loaded in the system. To do this, enter the car menu by pressing the CAR button, then press SETUP or MENU, then select the “Version” submenu and read the value from the line marked with the letters “SW“.

Important note about firmware updates and choosing correct firmware.
When you are looking for updates, make sure you are selecting correct one. Check first what firmware you have, look at the beginning of the name, and if you have for example HN+_EU_AU3G_P0432 you need to get newest firmware (which mostly means higher end number) which for this moment for above it’s HN+_EU_AU3G_K0942. Only Audi A6 C7 and Audi A8 D4 in their very first production year had firmware starting from HN+_XX but when looking for updates needs to get HN+R (Audi has change firmware name for A6/A8).
