Hi - thanks for a great forum. Sorry if buried in the depths is the answer BUT:-
I have successfully replaced my Symphony with a Navigation Plus - 2004 - and even got the Phone to work and the lights to come on AND the ignition off to work. But I cannot finid a cable to connect the glovebox CD changer to the Sat nav - I think that the connector will have to be cut in half so that I can fit in the new connector into the sat nav.

Please can anybody help on:-
1 Cable supplier
2 If I am right about halving the exisitng connector.

Thanks a lot

You never said what Sat nav you had? Nav+ covers a multitude of sins.

If you have an RNS-D the older Nav+ with CDrom and small screen then this is what you need. This cable will also work if you have an RNS-E adaptor wired for CD changer to.

If you have an RNS-E and want to connect directly to it on the quadlock adaptor, then this cable could also be used.

These cables are also readily available on Fleabay.

They are talking total rubbish - I got the CD changer version of the glovebox for my B6 S4 from Southampton Audi within 2 days!

Where is the CD changer fitted in your S6 when it's a factory option? - glovebox or LHS of the rear luggage compartment (that's where the CD changer was in my S3)?

Have you tried looking up the Audi part number by looking here?

The C5 body style never came with a CDC in the glovebox as far as I know.

I don't know why they would not supply the cable for you though. Just forget them and get the Kufatec cable instead.

clive,
keep in mind, if you have a C5 S6 and you want to mount the oem glovebox changer, you might run into space issues due to the Hella relays etc for the power adjustable steering column. That has been the case with the US-based C5 4.2. Just keep it in mind.

see some of my install photos of my glovebox in my 2.8.

Good luck!
