I think you answered your own question there - good luck getting special software from Audi...I know there must be a possibility as i know somebody wo has coded a 2010 rns-e to a6 in an a6. As much as i know he had a test unit from audi with a different software.
The other things that won't work are:What wont work in the b5. Only the Radio titles in the fis and that it will turn on with ignition and off? - as much as i found out all other things work...
You've gone way off topic on this thread, if you've spoken to bjarne he is the best person to tell you all about the "forgetting the PIN" issue.I spoke with bjarne and he said i should code it to a4 and with the help of cangate it should work.
The biggest problem is the pin issue. Can you tell me why it doesnt save the pin and why i have to disconnect the can wire from the speedo?
See point 3 in bjarne's reply above ... this is a problem that affects both pre-2010 and 201+ RNS-E when installed in a B5.So can anybody tell why the rns-e 2010 doesnt save the pin?
I've just checked the Engineering Mode screen dumps I've got and I can't see the VIN on any of them.can you tell me where i find the vin in the rns-e engineering mode? (also is the engineering mode in the 2010 rns-e similiar to reach as in the old ones)?
I've been told that it can be found in General->Coding in the EU software, and I did convert my RNS-E to EU once to verify it.I've just checked the Engineering Mode screen dumps I've got and I can't see the VIN on any of them.
Yes, the method to get into engineering mode is identical on the 2010+ RNS-E.
See http://audiforum.us/threads/engineering-mode-for-audi-navigation-rns-e.53/i tried to get in the engineering mode but it doestn work.
it is press nav left button over knob for 5sec and then the right button or?
or should i hold all buttons?
It DOES work, I've got a 2010+ RNS-E fitted in my RS4 and that's how I get into Engineering Mode.I read the thread but it doesnt work. I tried it 20 times.
TBH I can't remember, but it's worth a try.Is there a possibility to get the vin with VCDS. Except pin saving everything works in my b5. (even radio titles in fis, navigation info, etc)
AMI and Aux In use the same audio input, so you can't have AMI and Aux In, it's either or.I have aux-in placed in arm rest, and I have connected all the wires correctly however, I can't get a good sound from aux.
It makes sound, but in very low volumes.. and in the screen, it says AMI initializing..
I haven't done the vag-com change, do I need one?
HEX-USB+CAN is the most universal lead, but if all you need is a lead for CAN diagnostics (which is what the 8P uses) then you could go for the Micro-CAN lead.I am planning to buy one from ross tech, should I buy VCDS license with HEX-USB+CAN interface?
IIRC the diagnostics socket on the 8P is above the bonnet (hood) release lever.Is it hard to connect the cables into the car? I can't seem to find how to connect the cable to A3.
