    Question Sat Nav for my A3....Should I buy it?

    Hi people

    I just got an a3 2004 tdi recently. I am thinking of getting a sat nav/dvd player to make it look good as I like high tech. However I am thinking if I should buy the audi original sat nav or should I go for this one on ebay

    AUDI A3 / S3 7" GPS SAT NAV DVD MP3 iPOD BLUETOOTH DIGITAL TV DVB *NEW UK* | eBay

    £449 seems to be a bit pricy and over my budget but it does look cool and has got lots of features like Bluetooth,gps,dvd player and you can even add reverse camera to it. However I wonder if anyone up here have used this unit before and if so what was the experience?

    I look forward to hear from you guys

    I wouldn't look at these devices. A lot of people are complaining that although they pack a lot of features, way more than the oem rns-e, they are not good at anyone. Radio reception is bad, gps not that good, touch screen is very bad and have low redsolution. Overall bad quality.

    I have got mk1 RNS-E fitted in my 2004 A3 TDi that I will be replacing with the original head unit and selling soon.
    It comes with genuine 2-disc 2011 sat nav discs, 2x 4gb SD cards, genuine rns-e manual and the original audi keycode card with the 4 digit code if you are interested.
    It is in 100% mint perfect working order.
    Where abouts are you?

    the dynavin unit is useless and poor build quality i have had one, also noteable that it only works wth mpeg2 streams for the tv in europe so doesnt work in the uk for tv, g with rns-e i have one for sale at 300 with a nav disc
