For some reason my RNS-e, which had been working just fine, today decides that it isn't going to work anymore. When I turn the car on it asks for the PIN as it does occasionally, and when I put it in it accepts it and goes to the warning screen but almost immediately kicks back to the PIN screen asking for the PIN. Doesn't matter how many time I put it in, it just keeps looping back to this screen. Any ideas?

What car, what RNS-E? Did you try to reset the RNS-E?

press and hold RADIO and SETUP with ignition on until the RNS-E reboots and see what happens.

That did the trick!! Thanks a million!

Just got a VAG earlier this week....any chance I could talk you into walking me through coding it so my DIS works?

Address 17 channel 62, add +4 to whatever the current value is.

Hmmm....haven't ever used a VAG so that sounds like Greek to me, but I'll take a look and see if I can figure out what you mean. Thanks again!

Okay I gave it a shot. Went to 17 --> adaptation --> channel 62. The value was 0 so I changed it to 4. I do in fact now have the nav info in the lower 2/3 of my DIS now. For some reason I thought it was going to show up in the top 1/3. Is there some way to reactivate that to show what radio station or track I'm listening to?

In the B5, the previous radio may not have used CAN to talk to the DIS. In this case you will need to calculate the number from 0 based on this:

+1 Radio
+2 Phone
+4 Navigation
+8 Telematics
+16 Instrument cluster

8 and 16 do not apply to the B5, so you number is 5 for radio + navigation, and if you ever install an OEM phone interface you would use 7 = 1+2+4.
