    The latest RNS-E???

    Ok so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I purchased the latest NAV (RNS-E) from audi (2011 Black surround model). Now. They told me that the black surround rns-e model only comes in the black edition cars? is this correct. I know that the latest navigation unit has better graphics and can handle 32gb cards etc. But is this new model only available with a black surround? What unit do i actually have in my car at the moment while Audi have ordered the black surround one in for me?

    Judging by this site the latest version is available with the normal surround?

    RNS-E 3G Pics - Vw & Audi Sat Nav, Bluetooth , TV Tuners, Cruise Control Installations UK

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me.. Thanks

    Mine has a cd/tv button so I assume that's not the latest model. When Audi switch it over is there any direct way I can tell?

    So As long as It says media. And has silver dials. It will be the Led screen High res display model? As seen with a black surround

    The only true way to tell is to turn it on & see the screen setup & resolution, obvious differences, as some monkeys have stuck media button on mk1's to con others.

    Okay just wanted to be armed up with some knowledge for when I am called back for it to be switched over. I made it clear I wanted the black surround model looks much neater

    I thought the RNS-E unit with glossy black surround was fitted in all MY11 cars ordered with Nav, not only the BE models. I could be wrong however x

    You could well be right Paulie, maybe its std kit on all S3's now. I just assumed as it was called piano black it might be part of the BE thing which has piano black fittings as std . Its not like they gave a name to the non piano black.

    I think you're right on yours Paddy, mainly because you have the ashtray cover in gloss black too - which goes nicely together...

    I have the smoking delete pack so I have a matt storage bit in front of the gearstick, so it ties into my centre console differently.. Again crap phone pic!
