Audi Q3: Multi Media Interface

Traffic safety information

Audi recommends only using certain Infotainment system functions while the vehicle is stationary, such as entering a destination or pairing a mobile device. Always be prepared to stop operating the Infotainment system in the interest of your safety and the safety of other road users.


  • Only use the Infotainment system when road, traffic, weather, and visibility conditions permit and always in a way that allows you to maintain complete control over your vehicle.
  • This also applies to operating your mobile device via the MMI. Do not allow the visual or audio signals from a mobile device to distract you from traffic, because this increases the risk of an accident.


Certain functions are not available while driving.
