    audi nav/ tv

    Hi my audi chums

    i have the double din audi consert in my car with the aux socket and the stearing wheel controls, i have seen a post on here about an s3 with sat nav for sale and really want one now how much work is involved ? i would like rnse but may go aftermarket my wish list is below

    still uses the control on the wheel*
    aux still works
    has sat nav
    tv with tuner so the question is go oem or aftermarket ? dont really wanna spend more than £400 all in but the cheaper the better.

    OEM will be waaaaaayyyy over 400 if you want tv. A mkII rnse alone will cost more than that. You can get after market that will do everything but won't display in the DIS. Everyone here apart from Ash will tell you to go OEM

    Sorry I cannot answer your question but I have what appears to be the same Concert system in mine. Where is the aux socket located?

    Those Chinese units like the one below your Audi Concert pic are a waste of money IMO.

    I haven't come across 1 person yet who rates them over RNSE.

    Apparently even the colour of the plastic is a bad match.

    No drilling or shark fin required. You can get adapters and a gps aerial that sits behind the dash. Not sure about the concert radio aerial though, I think it needs some kind of adapter. In reality it's a simple job. Swapped mine in 10 minutes. It does require coding.

    Yeah, if youre lucky u can pick 1 up for not much more than a mK1

    Just be wary where you buy it from.

    Love the way you mention me! but he is right... tis true! OEM is wayyy tooo much money for what its worth!
    especially with all the mention of AMI and TV tuners!

    on another note £400 is barely going to get you a decent unit on its own. i mean you could go second hand and get an RNSE/Aftermarket unit but that would still be a basic unit that wont do half the things you would want.

    im not sure that the RNSE MkII is able to use a tv tuner as i think that cannot have the SDS hack which i think is needed to have the multimedia interface which then allows you to connect other inputs such as tv tuner and dvd players into it, but that info may be wrong as im sure one of the RNSE gurus will correct me.

    the reason why i dont recommend OEM for the headunit is simple... it costs way too much to get any of it working properly... for example:
    RNSE - £400 ish... depends on how good a deal you get, some can get fr cheaper while others can be paying a fair bit more
    bluetooth kit - £150 - £300
    voice activation kit - £200 ish
    multimedia interface - £120 in the link above
    ipod cable - £100! thats a rip off right there
    AMI - £ - not sure how much but also there is a factor of IF your unit will take it as older units wont...

    and after all that its still not touch screen, menus are frustrating to use and not as straight forward as they could have been, too many buttons to play with but still somehow looks lovely in the dash of an A3...

    Mate there are loads that you could get, but as i have said before no aftermarket unit looks as good in the A3 as the OEM RNSE... but thats just a compromise that i have learnt to live with since the aftermarket units functionality is so much better.
    i would stay clear of those Chinese RNSE look-a-likes (like the one you first posted), they are crap units and have not really heard a good word about them once fitted.

    if you want good quality i would recommend Pioneer or Alpine. they have exceptional units with the option of Nav and bluetooth built in...
    you would need a fitting kit also but once its all installed the sound quality with your original speakers is (in my opinion) better than OEM... this is because (AndyMac will back me up here) the crappy built in Audi equaliser is no longer controlling the unit or speakers thus making the sound coming out of the aftermarket unit better.

    if you do want more info on it (prices and links) let me know and i can post it... i just dont want to go into it if you are wanting OEM as i know i would be influencing you to go aftermarket.

    another user here (Patelbadboy) has recently installed the same aftermarket unit as me and he is very happy with it! although the lucky bugger got his unit as a present after i showed him which one i had, so he saved a good few hundred there!

    also just to add... as you wanted one that didnt look plastic... here is a link to Pioneer's site to their stereo surround which ties into the car theme 381320-14 Pioneer - Car Accessories - Car*Entertainment
