Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual / Vehicle overview / Volkswagen Information System / MFI menu (Multi-Function Indicator): Premium version

The MFI menu has 2 automatic trip memories: 1 – single trip memory and 2 – total trip memory. The number of the memory is shown at the upper right of the display. The trip memories are in addition to the trip odometer, which is displayed in the bottom part of the instrument cluster and controlled using the 0.0/SET button on the right of the instrument panel ⇒ Fig. 11⑦ ⇒ Fig. 12⑦ .

To display the distance driven on trips 1 and 2, select the Route item in the MFI menu (MFI > Route). Press the OK button (⇒ Fig. 16 ) to toggle between Route 1 and Route 2 (trip 1 and trip 2). Push and hold the OK button to manually reset a trip memory to zero.

1 Single trip memory The memory accumulates and stores information about distance driven and fuel used from the time the ignition was switched on until the time it was switched off.

If the ignition stays off for 2 hours or more, stored information is automatically deleted. If the trip is continued within 2 hours after the ignition was switched off, the new values are added.
2 Total trip memory The memory displays and stores the accumulated driving and fuel consumption data of any number of single trips up to a total driving time of 99 hours and 59 minutes, and up to a total distance of 9,999 miles (9,999 km), depending on the instrument cluster version. If one of the maximum values is exceeded, then the memory is automatically cleared and starts again from 0.
