I got my 2018 e Tron a little over a week ago and downloaded the Audi Connect app. I’d love to be able to control the preconditioning functions, but the app says I have no connectivity with the vehicle. Because, to the best of my knowledge, there are no Canadian wireless providers from whom I could get a SIM card (correct me if I’m wrong), I’m wondering if there’s a way to connect the MMI to my home WIFI. Have any other Canadians dealt with this issue?

I'm really surprised Audi actively neglected this for us here in Canada, yet again in the MY 2018.. It's not a technical or cellular limitation, the A4, A5, Q5 and Q7 all support Audi Connect in Canada.

Take a look at this thread, there is some success out there tethering to wifi, but it requires vehicle hacking.

There is also this thread where theres some discussion on this forum about AC in Canada.
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=318

I've actually gotten an OBDEleven, FAKRA antenna and just recently received the radio removal keys from ebay (see this thread https://www.audiworld.com/forums/audi-a ... 959/page6/) and plan to take the plunge some time this summer.

That being said, as far as I have read, even if you get the car online, the app will not connect to it as our Canadian VIN's are not "enabled" in Audi's database. However, i noticed on a recent check in to the myAudi website (https://login.audi.com/login/#/en/CA/login) they have done some updates, and there is a PIN there that in theory I will be able to enter in to my MMI once i've made the above adjustments.

But there's a pretty slim chance all this will result in us getting the capabilities these cars come with anywhere else in the world.. :cry:

Thanks for your thorough reply!!!

How absurd! Is there another way to precondition the cockpit temperature before use without using the app?

Scheduling through the MMI interface. But no way remotely to set it no..
