I am updating my Navi plus "c" to Rns-e with can-bus adapter, and the person that is installing this, tells me that is is not possible to get the DIS (FIS) to work !

Q1. is this true or is there a way ?
Q2. Would it be possible to use the BT module for the Rns-e ?

Much appreciated since i have been reading alot of the post's in here, and it is still unclear what is possible or not.
:)

A1: True because your cluster is 3 wire only, not CAN
A2: True because the BT phone interface needs a CAN cluster to work

Here's some good news, I have just tested an Audi BT module with a canbus adaptor and it works. So you wont get DIS, but the names/numbers appear in the RNS-E display.

I did this on my test bench, not in a car, but I simply hooked up the canbus adaptor to my RNS-E and a 12 Volt source, then tapped the ignition wire to +12V and the RNS-E powered up.

Then I rigged a BT module into the same test bench setup and powered up the RNS-E again by tapping the ignition wire to +12V again, then searched for a Bluetooth handsfree device with my phone, sure enough it popped up and paired with it.

Set the RNS-E to 7 for phone module and then got full functionality of the phone kit.

I didn't test illumination, but I have no doubt it will work.

Yes - the only way that the adapter can generate the "ignition on" signal over the CAN bus (and hence make the RNS-E turn on/off with ignition) is if you connect the ignition signal to the adapter.
