HELP!
I was trying to find information about the required US->EU conversion of the RNS-E in my 2006 S4 Convertible that I just imported into Europe, but could not find a thread.
All the threads were going from EU to US.
Is there any specialist out there who can give me some hints or point me in the right direction.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

The process is the same, just swap V222 and V220 and follow the instructions.

Hi there!
I finally got my Europe DVD on Ebay and was trying to convert the RNS E from US to Europe.
I created the CD with the files changing V220 to V222.
The unit starts updating the system software, but then gets stuck in a look (initializing Navigation SW...and then again system SW update).
It still won't recognize my EU DVD

My US SW version is 200 and the EU version is 650

Do you have any advice for me?

I was following the instructions in the thread http://www.navplus.us/forums/showthread.php?t=1480

I hope you can help!!

If the direct conversion from US 0200 to EU 0650 doesn't work, try to convert first to EU 0080 or EU 0100 (google should return a couple download links for those versions). The changes you made are correct, otherwise it wouldn't try to start the update.

Yes, all the channels and the main coding will be reset to some defaults that are not valid and will make the RNS-E act weird. After the conversion you have to recode the RNS-E to proper European settings even though radio and MP3 will work without coding.

If you bought the VAG-COM cable on ebay I hope you have the option to return it. Most of the clone or cheap cables don't work well with the RNS-E. And almost all of them only come with the shareware version of an old release of the VAG-COM software and that won't help much to set the correct value in all adaptation channels.

hmmm..not good. Yes, I can return. I might have a friend who can help me.

I have one more question on the EU 080 or 100. I could not find a link with the data. Would you have a link available.

Once again, thanks for all your help

RNS-E Conversion to EU???

Hi!

I have the same problem like liebhos4.
Obviously my RNS-E is working with US-Software and now I want to change to EU. Basically I think I’ve understood the procedure, but adapting of Index.txt and Loading.kwi is not 100% clear to me.

My RNS-E Version is: SOFIDX:0020; NAVVER:V222017B; AUDVER:A2220109-160804 (see attachment)!
And I’m using a ‘07 EU DVD with: SOFIDX:0600; NAVVER:V220073E; AUDVER:A2210138 (actually I want to us it)!

Here are my questions:
- Should I start first making a Update-CD with EU0080? And then using my original EU0600 DVD to finalize it?
- Loading.kwi (basis is EU0080): Change V222 to V220 using VIM-Tool., i.e. set as source US and destination EU. That’s all?
- Index.txt (basis is EU0080): SOFIDX: Should I use 0030, because my version is 0020. Or will it work with 0080 as well?
NAV/AUDVER: Both I have to change to V222. That’s clear. But the ‘extension’ …028C / …0087 is kept unchanged???


Thanks a lot!
BR, Sven

yes, start with 0080 and convert your RNS-E to Europ mode, then do a straight update to 0600. You can use any SOFIDX greater than 0020, or just keep it 0080. The navver doesn't really matter, it should do the update anyway as long as it's not the same. You should have a VAG-COM cable and confirm it's able to connect to your RNS-E. After doing the US - EU conversion check the softcoding and the adaptation channels, most of them will be wrong.

Thanks for the quick answer!
Concerning AUDVER: Should I converte it in the same manner (V220 to V222)?

One last question:
Is the VAG-cable mandatory for recoding/conversion (channel 97)???

V220 to V222 converts EU to US, V222 to V220 converts US to EU and yes you need the cable but not only to set 97 to 1, more to reset/check all the other channels to set them correctly for the new region.

Hi,

I wanted to let you guys know how the conversion went on my side. After creating the version 080 flash CD (as AudiA4B6US describes above), I was able to update the RNS E with my 2008 DVD to the latest version 650.
I still have not had time to check the settings with the vag com cable.
The interesting part was that first the navigation did not seem to work. After driving for 2 days it suddenly started working and I have not had any issues since then. All the new features of 650 work (e.g. Highway exit graphics, TMC info channel, etc).
I will still check the settings once I get the vag com cable, but so far everything works fine!

A BIG Thank You again to AudiA4B6US!!!!!

At first, thanks all you guys for the information posted in this tread.
It work for me too. Know the rns-e is asking me for a pin. Where can I find the pin? Can I located with the VAG COM cable? Which are those channels you have to change after the conversion?

Thanks
