IMI-1000 Audio Connection to Car

IMPORTANT: If you do not have an AUX port you have two options:

1. Use an AUX-AMI cable (all you need to do is plug it into the AMI, you do not plug anything into the AUX end).

2. Enable AUX via VCDS or similar during installation. Enabling aux will enable our kit to connect directly to the AUX pin on the rear of the head unit, allowing for a completely hidden installation and no need for an AMI-AUX cable.


All IMI-1000’s are compatible with OEM as well as aftermarket front parking camera, reverse parking camera and 360 degree cameras.

SKU: IMI-1000-3G-1 Category:


The IMI-1000 is an upgrade kit adding CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity to 2010-2018 AUDI A1’s and Q3’s equipped with the RMC and MMI 3G entertainment systems. The IMI-1000 works by communicating with your existing MMI system as well as your in-car entertainment system steering wheel controls, MMI rotary controls and associated buttons, vehicle speaker system and the Central Information Display. It operates in either by-pass mode or in “active mode”. In by-pass mode the IMI-1000 does not affect the normal operation of the in-car entertainment system, the standard AUDI MMI RMC/3G user interface and the standard AUDI navigation system(if fitted) will be shown on the CID when in by-pass mode. Active mode is initiated when you connect your mobile phone to the car via the wireless Bluetooth connection or USB cable. After connection, the IMI-1000 activates CarPlay or Android Auto (dependent upon the operating system of your phone, iOS or Android). The Central Information Display (CID) will then show the CarPlay or Android Auto user interface and unleash the power of CarPlay/Android Auto!
