    my2012 cd player?

    Am I right in thinking I can play CDs in the standard rnse ( audio system)? I assume you eject the nav dvd and insert the cd - am I correct?

    I actually thought the navi disc was locked in the DVD drive, Garthy. It can be unlocked and ejected using VCDS. AFAIK it's an anti-theft measure.

    You can play CD's (regular or burned ones) in the RNS-E disc drive, if you remove the Nav disc via VCDS first, but you won't be able to run the sat nav simultaneously without the nav disc in the drive. The only other option is to use an external CD player, such as the 6 CD multi changer option which is the alternative to the glove box Multi Media Interface.

    I have the 6-CD stacker as a no-cost-option for exactly the above reasons! It's nice to be able to play CDs and have sat nav.

    I cant see the point when it has 2 sdhc slots that can take literally thousands of tunes, rip cd's to mp3 which is a quick job, then shove on a 32gb sdhc card, of which I can supply for a good price, class 10 aswell

    Agree with NHN - 2x32=64 is about a month of solid music at a decent nitrate (256) - you'd never have to touch a CD again! Just make sure you put it all in sensible folders, and that all music is in MP3 format.

    Foobar2000 will take just about any music format in from whatever mess of a folder(s), convert it to the right format (if its not in the right format already), and save it all to whatever folder structure you want (I do artist\Album, with a compilations artist folder).

    ...and me too! But it's surprising how much time a little child takes up and how long in takes to get around to ripping things from CD, to computer, to finally add to your SD card(s)!!

    If you cant eject the dvd then its locked in & requires someone to disable the lock with vcds or a dealer.

    normally the satnav DVD should be in the same drive as you would put cd's in ergo you can do both at the same time. but what you can do is put a blank HDSD card**** in at the same time and the media player will ask if you want to downlaod. press yes and the sat nav will download onto the HDSD card, and then you dont need to have the satnav DVD in so long as you have the HDSD card in. and you have 2 card slots so just keep the card in and you still have one free!:D

    **** in the manual it says an 8GB card will, do if you have post summer 2011 maps you will need a 16GB card!! Manual was printed early 2011


    hope ive helped

    Download the nav data onto an sd card, afaik thats not avaiilable on the 8P mk1 or mk2 unit, you sure they've not confused themselves with the mmi system on the bigger more technological chassis?

    One sec, as we saying the RNES unit can copy the nav DVD to a SD card and thus free up the CD/DVD drive to use with CDs?

    No mate as the mk1 rns-e never had the ability or the firmware programming to use the drives (mk2), now thats not to say it cant be done, but you'd need to reprogramme the firmware as such, given the drives are now sdhc so allot faster & handle vastly more data, anythings possible, but mk1's would never of been able to handle it, hardware restriction imho.

    My dealer says once I have an 8gb sdcard he'll copy it for me. Says it'll only take a few minutes. My S3 is only 1month old. Plus they say you can alter hw the doors open through the DIS - one click open all or just drivers door.

    TBH mate never ever known or heard the rns-e to be able to use sd cards for the nav, so either its a new feature I'm not aware of or he's talking crap, I'm going with latter atm, but happy to be proven wrong!!!

    Once I have the sd card I'll book it in and hopefully it'll work - but I am happy to remain on the fence until proven either way.

    Rip your CDs to ALAC lossless format, put them onto an iPod and plug that into the AMI.

    Full control of playlists, albums, artists etc, music at perfect quality, and no cocking about changing the CD when you get fed up of hearing your Top Gear Driving Songs CD loop for the 8th time. Davie Bowie is great, but I can't look "Rebel Yell" in the eye for at least another 6 months.

    lol does anyone know if its possible to play MP3's from the SD card while using the Nav? or is it a one or the other choice? i often have to drive long distances for work and need both, and am thinking of making the upgrade to either MK1 or Mk2.
