Does RNSE require the PIN input anytime the cluster is removed??

I remove the cluster often for checking the operation of my in-tach boost gauge and the RNSE just went into PIN Entry mode.

Will I be faced with this every/any time I remove the cluster??

Also, since I have Lee's instructions for resetting RNS-E, and it requires a reboot of the unit, am I going to loose all my input data?? IE Names, Routes etc...??

You don't say what car you have but in any B6, 8P or 2002+ C5 you should not need to enter the code after disconnecitng the cluster.

I have a bench test setup with a B6 cluster and a RNS-e and I never need to enter the code as long a the cluster stays connected. Even days or weeks after cutting power.

Yep, sorry. B5 S4.

It certainly asked for the PIN...don't know why, but it did.

I have been lucky though, it didn't require the reboot...I just let it sit for a while.

So, if I were to reboot, is that like a hard reset where I would loose all the settings and data I stored??

You should not lose any settings by just doing a reset.

Yes in the B5 and early C5 cars you will have to enter the PIN much more frequently then later cars. Let's just say that our clusters don't get along well with the RNS-E and they will take any chance they can get to "disconnect" from each other.
