The first somehow reliable hint to the new Euro DVD. Supposed to be available in December (in Germany).
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.jakerade said:with UK TMC??
That implies that the 2007 DVD will include UK TMC, and that UK TMC will not be a dealer upgrade.Tom Peterkin said: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.

Well as you know, the latest news seems to be that a Â£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.PetrolDave said: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 ...
In a reply to another person on his email list the contact at Audi UK implied that there would/could be concessions ...Vertigo1 said: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 Â£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 someone who told Tom that he had retrofitted the RNS-E, Tom said it would apply to all cars fitted with an RNS-E.jakerade said:will the Â£100 apply to good folk such as ourselves who have retro-fitted or just to those who had one with a car?
You definitely won't get the Â£100 price if you just order it at a dealer - only people on Tom Peterkin's list will get the special price.livefour2day said:Ordered mine over the phone today Audi are ringing me back in the morning to confirm the price i will let you all know
