    Looks awesome and is this the first time we've seen pics (albeit rendered ones) of what the new A3 will look like?

    Yes - you can see it says 4G in the corner and streetview would require at least 3G to work properly. They have 4G in the states and this was recorded at the Detroit motor show...

    It may well 2013 is the US but it will almost certainly be the released in 3-door format at the Geneva Motor Show in March for Europe. The Sportback will following some time in 2013.

    Lets face it 3G is about 25% covered in the Country (If that), and 4G will be a lot less even if it was released by time the car was

    4G WILL (by definition) have better coverage... once rolled out. No way we'll have 4G before 2015 though, at the earliest. The auction for the spectrum doesn't even take place until later this year or maybe even next year dependant on court cases currently ongoing.

    3G doesn't have the coverage for this, and UK data usage plans are far too low to even consider this for normal navigation - it could be useful for a single glance though, or to show what to expect at the next junction, rather then all the time.

    It's a shame they can't build any part of this into the current A3's though - the new one looks okay, but too much like a stretched A1 to hold my interest for 18 months or more while they bring out the new one to match the spec of mine on order. The RNSe is probably going to be the one part of my car that I feel lets it down, though. More because of the lack of 7 digit postcode search than anything.

    I use Google Navigator on my phone, I'm guessing that Audi intend to use a version of it. If the do without messing it up too much I think it'll be the best out there. Navigator is great in my opinion use it all the time whilst traveling up and down the country in the car. It does the Streetview thing when you arrive at your destination, it can shows routes in satellite view not just a plane map, and also provides a summary of your route with any delays en route.
    Very rarely have any issues with it because of a lack of network coverage, which is surprising since I'm on T-mobile.

    I like the current location but the newer style could reduce theft.

    I hope the basic Sat nav is improved... I was doing my usual 400 mile round trip to Norfolk yesterday and i had the sat nav on silent because i like the ETA info and times etc despite the fact i know the way. I have to laugh when i get 20 miles from home and the sat nav says ETA is 3 hours and its trying to get me to do a U turn on the M25... 5 miles before my exit junction :-).
    Last tim it tried to send me North when joining the M11 instead of South and once it tried to take me up the off slip roads and back down the on slip roads at each junction on the M11 south bound
    Funny but really you wouldnt want to follow it any distance unless you already knew the route

    Have you got dynamic navigation enabled, as this can happen if it gets a traffic info alert which would then divert you to other routes, even if that alert is ages old.

    I do have traffic info enabled but TBH mate if their is a problem it shows as an icon on the map usually and there were no icons yesterday.
    It just seems to have a problem with the M23/M25 junction. I did once follow it because i was unsure of where i was and it took me to the Addenbrookes hospital car park in Cambridge which was no where near the route i wanted, south on the M11. I eventually programed in a mid point destination being the Dartford crossing at it managed that.........and then on to Dorking
    It just never inspire confidence.

    I know the feeling mate had a few funny ones on my journeys to Italy & back, but made it nonetheless, but if I'm honest that maybe down to the frenchies building some new roads or just moving existing lol.

    Not once has my RNS-E given me wacky directions. The Tomtom I had before it was a joke however, always trying to take me on insane detours.
