.:VIM (Video In Motion)

 

This article talks about and includes the instructions to enable Video In Motion. Basically it's enabling the MMI's ability to continue playing either the TV or DVD while the car is moving. This would be very handy for passengers because we would never watch TV or a DVD while driving right!!! There are laws regulating video being available to drivers so use this at your own risk and for testing only.

In order to enable this feature on your system you have to acquire a special log in code for the security portion of the coding. I have included an online version below you can use but also provided a windows program to do the same thing. Of course the advantage of having the program on your computer is you don't have to be connected to the internet during your installation.

You will require Microsoft's .NET Framework 3.5 to use this program (most will have it ). Don't worry if you don't have it you will be prompted to download it from Microsoft during the installation.
Either go to my download page or click here to download it. Please note I am not the creator of this particular windows program. Use at your own risk. Information on the creator is available when you use the program.

*If you are using a VAS 505x use channel 001 to retrieve the serial number (first field). You must remove the leading zero from the generated login-code (4 digits instead of 5).

 
*Online Version available after manual decoding instructions.

The first step is to retrieve the serial number of the Navigation Unit.

For MMI 2G go to:
[07 - Control Head]

For MMI 3G go to:
[5F - Information Electr.]

You will find the serial number by clicking on the Advanced ID - 1A on the controller screen in VCDS. Generic screen shot shown below for reference.

You can also obtain the serial number from any Auto Scan you have run with VCDS (see examples below).

Example 2G:
Address 07: Control Head Labels: 8T0-035-7xx-07-H.clb
Part No SW: 8T0 035 729 M HW: 4E0 035 729 A
Component: Interfacebox H43 4610
Revision: 00000000 Serial number: 340HZ065409456
Coding: 0025003
Shop #: WSC 06325 000 00000

Example 3G:
Address 5F: Information Electr. (J794) Labels: None
Part No SW: 8T1 035 664 B HW: 8T1 035 664 B
Component: H-BN-NA H45 0042
Revision: -------- Serial number: 490K 094987232
Coding: 01020000030681FF51001F0E000000030000
Shop #: WSC 02391 823 56573

Manually Decoding Your Security Code:

For the purpose of this sample we will use a made up serial number of : 331CE098765432

The digit order shows what order the number of the serial number will be put in for the security code. i.e. 1 is the first digit 3 would be the 3rd digit of the security code. There are 2 possible codes which is why there are 2 separate combinations shown

Login code #1
Digit order: XXXXX1xxx35X24

Login code #2 (alternative code)
Digit order: XXXXX1xxx234X5

Code #1 = 03625
331CE098765432
XXXXX1xxx35X24

Code #2 =06542
331CE098765432
XXXXX1xxx234X5

Automatic VIM Generator:

After retrieving your Serial number enter it in the box below and click the "Generate" button. You will be presented with a primary (Code1) and secondary (Code 2) to use. Always start with Code 1.

<--Enter Value Here


Use the security code you generated along with the instructions for your specific unit type (2G/3G) below.

Instructions 2G:
  1. Select control module 07 in VAG-COM/VCDS
  2. Select "Advanced ID - 1A"
  3. Decode the value from the "Serial number" field. If there is more than one serial number field, use the first one!
  4. Select "Security Access - 16"
  5. Enter the login-code decoded from Serial Number.
  6. Press "Do It!". If you receive a "code not valid" message try the alternate code. If neither code works it's likely that your control module doesn't support VIM.
  7. Select "Adaptation - 10"
  8. Select channel 63
  9. Press read
  10. Set the value to 255
  11. Press test
  12. Press save
  13. Press "Done, Go Back", close the controller and quit the software
  14. Now reset the MMI.
    This is done by pushing down the Setup – Scroll Wheel and top right menu buttons at the same time. Press all three at the same time then release.

  15. Optional Restart Method for MMI 2G:
    1. Select control module 07 in VAG-COM/VCDS
    2. Select "Adaptation - 10"
    3. Select channel 111
    4. Test & save the value 1 into this channel
    5. Press "Done, Go Back"

Instructions 3G:
  1. Select control module 5F in VAG-COM/VCDS
  2. Select "Advanced ID - 1A"
  3. Decode the value from the "Serial number" field. If there is more than one serial number field, use the first one!
  4. Select "Security Access - 16"
  5. Enter the login-code decoded from Serial Number.
  6. Press "Do It!". If you receive a "code not valid" message try the alternate code. If neither code works it's likely that your control module doesn't support VIM adaptation.
  7. Select "Adaptation - 10"
  8. Select channel 48
