Hi, find this fine forum today, and since I have already aftermounted an RNS-E in my A3 3.2 I´m now thinking of complete it with an tv tunner and the orginal telefone kit that works with the navi!

So what parts do I need? I can buy the tv-tunner on ebay, but the rest would be frome vag! and how about the telephone kit? will it work with only an bluthouth conection and not an holder? I´m only intressted in getting the navi and my phone to talk with eachother. And what have u guys that has aftermounted the TV-tunner used as antenna for the tv signal?

Probebly more question will come up, but you guys seams to be the ones to ask!

Welcome.

If you browse around here and use the search you will find a couple of messages regarding the "C" type tv tuner and bluetooth integration. So far the RNS-E does not really integrate a BT handfree set. It mutes and shows phone but that's all. There are at least 3 OEM BT kits for the B7, they all come with the mounting kit on the dashboard or in the center armrest. But even those do not support dialing from the RNS-E directory or navi DVD.

Hi!
But can the orginal BT do this, call frome the navi with a BT phone without a holder? I can mount a holder in the car, but its not a demand to have one. I tried to read some old threads , but I didn´t find any list of what parts I´ll need! And what antenna shall I use for the TV-tunner?

As I said the currently availabe BT handfree sets do not really integrate with the RNS-E. They support voice commands and allow pairing with supported phones to avoid the wiring but that's all. I haven't seen a message posted yet where someone retrofited the OEM BT kit, most people go with a 3rd party kit and get OEM functionality. Audi requires that you use an external antenna, that's why all OEM BT kits come with some kind of holder. But again, I haven't seen a posting where someone listed the OEM parts which are required.

For the TV, not much more details either. There were a couple of message where people who upgraded to the RNS-E and had to install the new "C" tuner. But they already had the TV antennas from their "B" tuner and I guess they simply took the old antenna wires. Based on what I read about the Symphony diversity antenna issues, the TV antenna signal is coming from the diversity box you alreaqdy have for your Concert/Symphony. It's just a different part number with more connectors. Since this piece is quite expensive, you might be better off getting a Dietz adapter and connect a 3rd party video source (DVD player of TV tuner).

My dealer told me it is not possible to fit BT afterwards into my NavPlus RNE

I now have a BT carkit from Nokia CW-7, muting the sound.
No "visual" integration with navplus.

Well, to repeat what someone else said in a different forum: You can retrofit almost everything if you spend enough time and money. The question is: Is it worth the effort?

I have yet to see a BT kit with better integration than current aftermarket systems, IMO it's not worth the effort right now. But maybe later...
