Audi Q7: Personalization


General information

Applies to: vehicles with personalized user settings

Depending on vehicle equipment and your country, your vehicle may be able to manage various users in the MMI. Each user will be assigned the settings that they last used.

Before you begin driving, you can select a user in the MMI and load personalized Infotainment and vehicle settings.

Possible users in the MMI:

  • myAudi user: as a myAudi user, you can use Audi connect services that require a myAudi account.

    Certain settings are transferred online to your myAudi account. If you log into your myAudi account in another vehicle, you can load your settings in the other vehicle.

  • Local user: as a local user, you can only store settings in the current vehicle. Your settings cannot be transferred to other vehicles. Audi connect services that can only be used with a myAudi account will not be available.
  • Guest user: as a guest user, you can store settings in the vehicle without changing the settings for other users. Audi recommends only using the guest user temporarily, because settings can be overwritten by other users.

Depending on vehicle equipment, the following options may be used to detect the active user so that the user settings can be loaded automatically before you start driving.

  • Vehicle key

Requirement: the driver's door has been opened.

The detected user must be shown in the MMI.

Confirm the user shown, select another user, or add another user.


It may not be possible to load Infotainment and vehicle settings, or they may only load partially. The driver is always responsible for the Infotainment and vehicle settings in order to reduce the risk of an accident.


  • Certain Infotainment and vehicle settings (such as mirrors, last radio stations) may be stored, depending on vehicle equipment.

    You can find additional information in the MMI. Select on the home screen: SETTINGS > General > Legal notes > About Audi connect.

  • Applies to: myAudi users: The stored settings can only be transferred to vehicles that are capable of receiving the transmitted information. There may be restrictions that prevent this, particularly in other countries.
  • Applies to: myAudi users: The settings can only be transferred and loaded when there is coverage from the applicable mobile phone service provider.
  • Applies to: myAudi users with PIN protection switched on: If the MMI displays a detected user but you simply start driving or wait without entering the 4-digit PIN, then the guest user will be selected. Some settings for the detected myAudi user will be transferred to the guest user.
