    We were told by the manufacturer that it will work with the RNS-e.

    It won't however show any Radio / Track / Title info like you would get on a normal DAB radio. It is all controlled through a MFSW (You must have a MFSW!) and your DIS.

    It is a really cool product!

    You chopped the 'r' off the end of the your link:

    Does look like an interesting piece of kit, wish it had been around three years ago when I was putting DAB into my A3. I ended up with a Bluestate RA-558 DAB and Bluetooth aftermarket radio.

    Sugar.....

    Cheers bud! Yes it's a pretty good kit for the money. Especially with FM due to switch off around 2015.

    I was thinking of installing this at the same time as a muti function wheel.
    Would it still work with a retrofitted wheel?

    It won't matter whether the wheel is retro-fitted or not, just the fact that it works !

    However, you need to be aware that you need the correct steering module for the wheel to work at all ( apart from just steering that is !!!!! )

    Its not exactly a DAB retrofit if its an aftermarket part. I've installed these on cars before and they're really good. As mentioned before it only works via steering wheel controls. Get urself a bunch of cable ties or some velcro and mount the unit somewhere tho. With the amount of space behind the a3 dash it'll easily slide around or bounce about which will be very annoying after a while.

    The rumours are true...

    Can't say any more at the mo but they will be coming at some point in the near future It's going to be a game changer in the VW world!

    We'll be announcing it on our Facebook page as we may run a competition around it. But will definitely let you know via PM!! Could maybe sort you out with the first one
