    Upgrading stereo unit to sat nav

    Hi all, please help!
    I have a 2010 a3 with a chorus stereo unit which has bluetooth and I pod lead with the info linked into the DIS. I want to change the stereo for a sat nav unit, whilst keeping the iPod and Bluetooth, how easy is this to do? Will I only need the sat nav unit and the others will connect into it?

    If you use the RNS-e I believe you can keep the bluetooth but that you'd need to get the AMI connectors to go with the RNS-e, you can't use the current iPod cables etc.

    Don't take that as gospel, though.

    And if you get an rns-e will need coding to suit what you have installed with it for it to function properly and no fault codes to be thrown up.
    SPEC: ebony pearl black ~ auto lights ~ auto wipers ~ half leather/suede interior ~ armrest ~ anti dazzle rear mirrior ~ coming home/ leaving home function.

    MODS: flat bottom steering wheel ~ bluetooth ~ cruise control ~ rns-e ~ MY09 rear lights ~ s3 pedals ~ s3 air vents ~ LED interior light pack ~ facelift buttons ~ dension ~ SDS ~ Aliminium inlays ~ full grille conversion.

    FUTURE MODS: lower ~ black edition rear ~ s-line/facelift front ~ black headlining ~ BBS CH-R or Speedlines.
