I have just converted my EU to US nav. Now I have the nag screen.

I know that in a Touareg you can code the nav via VAG-COM to not have the nag screen. Does this work for our RSN-E units as well?



I don't know what the coding is. I helped a local Tourag owner one night with my VAG-COM and he changed his setting and got the nag screen to go away.

There is no known way yet to disable the legal disclaimer. But I'm sure someone will figure this out eventually...

The Touareg guys seem to just change the soft coding of the unit in the VAG-COM to that of a Euro unit. Even though it has US software this seems to turn off the nag screen. I have yet to go try it on my car.


I also seem to have the "blink" with my 2000 S4. So the NAG screen pops up telling me not to get distracted when it iw distracting me. :lol:

Here is what I found on the Touareg forums. I may go try this on my car in a little while to see if it has the same effect.




To turn off Navigation system acceptance screen:
This modification also turns off the key in ignition chime. It can be performed on cars with the standard radio just for this reason. On those cars it will not change the radio settings or effect the AM portion of the radio like it does on the cars with the navigation radio.
1) start VAG-COM
2) click: “select control module†button
3) in Direct Entry box type: 17
4) click: RECODE 07
5) In the Software Coding box should be a number (mine was 0007231). The second digit after the three 0s (2 in the above example) seems to be a region code.
1 - Europe
2 - USA
3 - Canada
4 - UK
In other words by changing the coding from 0007231 to 0007131 you'd get rid of the acceptance screen! So enter the number you want and click: DO IT.
6) click: close controller, go back
7) click: go back

One note: The Radio Issue:

Europe uses different specs for their radio compared to North America.
FM:
FM frequencies in Europe are spaced .1Mhz apart, compared to .2Mhz in North America. This causes no problems in using a Nav Plus in North America, it just means you can tune into some frequencies (such as 92.2) which don't exist here. Since it can tune into all the North American FM frequencies that do exist, it works fine.
AM:
AM frequencies in Europe are spaced 9Khz apart, compared to 10Khz in North America. Europe also does not have AM Stereo, so the Nav Plus does not support it. This DOES cause a problem. It means you can only get "close" to some stations when trying to tune them in. To my ear it's "OK", perhaps sounding a bit like an AM tuner when you turn the knob just off station, but if you are an AM audiophile, this may be an issue for you. If there is a particular AM station you like to listen to, you can calculate if the Nav Plus will get close in frequency. Simply start at 531Mhz, then add 9 MHz until you get close. For example, if you have a favorite station at 660Mhz, the closest you can get is 657Mhz. The most a station will be out by is 4Mhz. I have a 660Mhz station in my town, and 657Mhz sounds OK to me, but an 1140Mhz station (which is 1143Mhz on the Nav Plus) does sounds a bit off station. Again use at your own risk.

I had my US unit connected to my cluster while it was coded for Germany and it still displayed the warning.
