I recently installed an RNS-e unit from PROXUS into my '05 S4 and I just noticed in the Navigation manual that the RNS-e is also supposed to display the navigation directions on the instrument cluster display. Mine does not do that. Is something wrong? Do I need to have it VAG'd to get that feature to work?

Thanks!!

Yes. With "it" being the intrument cluster.
Could you point me to where I can find the codes I'll need to have my buddy with the VAG enter to the cluster to make it work with the RNS-e? I have a friend with a VAG computer, but he wouldn't know off-hand what needs to be entered to get the instrument cluster to display the navigation directions. This is for a '05 S4 (B6) if that helps. Thanks!

#17, channel 62, add +4 to the current value.
Sorry to bother you again, but one follow-up question:

Will this VAG-COM setting also resolve the problem with the instrument cluster display not scrolling the station title/song name? When I play MP3's/Radio, the cluster only shows the first 8 characters or so of either song title (MP3) or radio station. With the Symphony II, it would scroll the entire song name on the cluster.

Thanks for the help!

Sorry, that's not a bug but a feature. The RNS-E doesn't scroll text in the DIS, neither RDS text nor ID3 tags.

Got it. I did notice; however, that when I have the FM radio in normal mode (not presets) on the DIS the RNS-e will scroll certain song tracks for some stations, but not nearly as many stations as with the Symphony II. Odd.

Anyway, I am going to get the cluster VAG'd this weekend using the code you mentioned before so I can get the arrows on the cluster. Thanks for the help!

I also recently installed nav plus purchased from PROXUS in my '06 S4, and having the same issue. I know I have to VAG-COM to display the navigation directions on the instrument clusters, but I'm not even getting the first 8 characters of the radio station title/song name. All I get is FM and station name (ex. FM 94.9). Does anyone one of you know how to fix this since you said you're getting the first 8 characters or so of the song title???[/quote]

It all depends what the FM station you are tuned to transmits.

Think yourselves lucky you get anything! - in the UK NONE of the radio stations transmit song title information!!!
