Hello,

I just bought a brand new navi the RNS-E for my 2006 A4. Can someone take the time to post full instructions, and if not too much add some pictures in there too please.


Thanks

It's not a difficult job to do the conversion - with an RNS-E (EU H unit) from Haaggie and a full Bluetooth kit (M version) from craigyb (both trusted sellers on this forum) I swapped the Symphony II in my new (1 day old at the time) 06 B7 RS4 Avant on Sunday.

From start to finish it took me less than 2 hours - including recoding the RNS-E and instruments, and fitting the microphone into the interior light. (I also did some recoding on the instruments and central convenience module to get them working how I want them at the same time - I have my own HEX-COM+CAN lead from Ross Tech, which I can also use on my wife's 05 Skoda Fabia, and have used to help several local guys avoid an expensive visit to the dealer).

This is the second such install I've done in my Audis (first was an 04 B6 S4 Avant) - all ALL the information I've needed has been found right here.

Unfortunately not (it's my 50th birthday next week and the RS4 is my birthday present to myself) - but I still behave like a young 'un most of the time!

I still like the latest gadgets and "boys toys" - that's why I'm trying to work out how to strip down an Audi phone cradle so that I can hideaway the electronics and just have a "Talk" button on the centre console (if it will work with the H RNS-E and M Bluetooth - the microphone is already wired through the RNS-E to the phone module) - there is no way I was going to give up the RS4 steering wheel!

So how does the SDS work on the RNS-E itself? Can you control anything or are there only basic voice functions?

Not got it working yet - in the absence of either a phone cradle or the MFSW there's no way I can find of getting into SDS mode on the RNS-E.

All the menus are there to change the SDS language and to change the SDS response volume, but that's AFAIK that's as far as I can get without a cradle or MFSW. Unless someone here knows different ....

I think the RNS-E receives a CAN message that puts it into SDS mode.

I will be placing my order for my nav system monday and will be buying the BT unit from NSX shortly there after. I have the MFSW, so if anyone wants to walk me through the tests, I would be happy to try it ... as long as nothing blows up ;)
