I have a B7 us Spec S4 with Nav + RNS-D. I would like to know if there is any way to modify the EU disc for the RNS-E to work in the RNS-D unit the way everyone has modified the US disc to work in the RNS-E. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to save the 1800 euro it will cost me to get an RNS-E unit from a reputible source here in Germany. I dont really trust the Ebay.de units for sale as not being stolen. Thanks.

:? ... RNS-D in an B7... hum... you must be confusing the units...

which one do you have:


i would think you've got an RNS-E not D... but then again i could be wrong and i think that would make you the only person i've heard of w/ and RNS-D in a B7...

ok then I am confused..

I must have the RNS-E unit. I thought the difference between the two though was that one is for eruope (RNS-E) and the other for the US (RNS-D) If you re right then I have the US Spec RNS-E unit in which the Europe disc will not work and I want it to.

I'm going to have both the US and EU RNS-E available soon (or later, depends on DHL again). Once I got both units I will try to get the EU DVD working on the US unit. If this works you will be able to use the navigation part but your radio will still not work very well.

Do you have a Euro DVD? If yes, which version/part number is it?

I checked and feel retarded now..

I do have the RNS-E. I dont have the Europe DVD. I ordered it and then didnt buy it when we put it in at the service center and it didnt work. They had no clue why it wouldnt work. Noone did. Not even the place I bought the car from. I am going to end up buying the european Nav unit and just have both I think.

Since the European version is much more advanced (when used in Europe), I would also recommend to get the EU unit and keep the US unit for the time when you (your car) goes back to North America. TMC is a very usefull feature and future software updates will be much easier with the Euro unit.
