The first somehow reliable hint to the new Euro DVD. Supposed to be available in December (in Germany).

with UK TMC??
Audi UK are suggesting that an upgrade will be available in January 2007 that will include UK TMC - whether this is a dealer only DVD (like the UK TMC upgrade was on the MMI system) or part of the EU 2007 DVD we do not know at the moment.

Anyone has any idea if Greece is included on this DVD release? I was told by Greece dealership that it should be included.
Thanks in advance.

Here's an email I had yesterday from Audi UK regarding UK TMC and the EU 2007 DVD ...

Hi Dave,

There will only be one disc for the RNS-E sat nav, providing 2007 mapping and TMC functionality.

We have not been notified of the part number of the new disc.

That implies that the 2007 DVD will include UK TMC, and that UK TMC will not be a dealer upgrade.

But, as always with any Audi importer, believe it when you see it ...

Well as you know, the latest news seems to be that a £100 charge will be levied to existing customers to upgrade to TMC for which they'll simply get a new DVD so this suggests the 2007 disc does have TMC on it and Audi are simply offering it to existing customers below the usual price.

Bargain if you have a very old disc as you get a map update and TMC for half the regular cost. For me, OTOH, it's a bloody rip-off as I'll be asked to fork out another £100 for a replacement disc on a 1 month old car, which is a disgrace. There should be some concession towards those people who've only had their cars a short period.

In a reply to another person on his email list the contact at Audi UK implied that there would/could be concessions ...

will the £100 apply to good folk such as ourselves who have retro-fitted or just to those who had one with a car?

In a reply to someone who told Tom that he had retrofitted the RNS-E, Tom said it would apply to all cars fitted with an RNS-E.

That could be clever use of language (fitted could mean "fitted at the factory", or it could mean any car currently fitted with an RNS-E - we will have to wait and see.

You definitely won't get the £100 price if you just order it at a dealer - only people on Tom Peterkin's list will get the special price.

His contact details are [email protected]
