Music starts every time when ignition on?

Hi,

Every time I start my Q3, music will come on automatically, regardless of whether it's on or off last time. Even though I explicitly turn music off before ignition off, next time when ignition on music will start playing automatically again.

Any idea how to turn off this "feature" (that is not to start playing music automatically). Turning off the MMI before ignition off will stop it from playing music when ignition on, but then there won't be bluetooth connection for my phone until I "wake up" the MMI again.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I think it's pretty much what you have it down there as. One or the other... It's either wait to connect bluetooth, or have the music

Hmm, and you can't simply "mute" the "music?"

I'm not sure what "music" you are referring to, whether it's a CD, the radio, or MP3 or what, but I've always found when I "mute" the entertainment before shutting down the car, it is still muted when I start it up.....

Thanks for the reply.

@boblepp : I am pretty sure I tried volume right down before ignition off, and I don't think it works... but I will try again tomorrow.

@Klassic : Seems like you are facing the same issue as mine...

@DampDuffer : That would be what I expected but it didn't work on mine though. Let's say it's playing music from the SD card, I muted it before ignition off but it will start playing again from the same source when ignition on next time. And it is the same for other media too (bluetooth, radio, etc).

As a result, a lot of times, the first thing I have to do after ignition on is to manually mute the music before anything else... that's why I am asking for help in case I am missing something.

Thanks,

I have same issue. There is no "mute" that works in the off/on of the vehicle except the shut down the MMI completely. There is a thread I started awhile back on this and Roger explained that is it like a smart phone in operation and the only way to mute it when shutting down is to hard shut down the MMI. Kinda dumb not to have a simple "off" for the radio volume.

@john : thanks for confirming that

That's too bad, seems like Audi overlooked this obvious one. Or they just don't bother to do it right, otherwise they can easily patch the software to remember the last setting before the car is off.

Sorry - but what I've said before is still true - since MMI was first introduced, it works this way. There have been a few variations on start-up volume and source, but generally not an audio-only off. The only way I know to do what you want is to select an SD card in the media section for which no card is inserted... This will also allow you to receive calls with no music on or muted in the background if you want to drive that way. If you shut down the MMI to get quiet, you will usually lose your phone answering capability too...

Don't flame me for this as this is just my opinion and I do love the Q3 (I have 2!) but my wife and I agree that the Infotainment System is the weakest link of this vehicle. If they could take the system from the Kia Soul and drop it in the Q3 it would make it so much better! Again, just expressing my view of the MMI system...
