    audi navigation plus needs code !

    audi navigation plus needs code !
    Hi i am wondering if there is anyone out there that can help me it's driving me up the wall.

    I purchase an Audi a3 navigation plus for my car off gumtree
    The previous owner fitted and then must have entered the code for it
    It was working fine but then I changed my battery and now is asking for a code
    He stayed over 100 miles away and I have lost his phone number
    Audi say they Cant touch it as it is not in it's original car

    It is driving me mad

    Please help !

    Thanks !

    If you don't have the card with the code on it, try removing the unit I've seen a lot where sellers have put a sticker on top of the unit. There are also decoding services on ebay but cannot comment if they work or not.

    Strange! I put one in mine and when I changed the battery it remembered it's code. I've had it out a couple of times since and it still remembers it?

    Fortunately, I have the code anyway.

    Stereos are synchronised with the original car but need the code to work in an alternative car

    That's why I thought it was strange, the car remembers the second-hand RNS-E I fitted. I only put the code in when I first fitted it and now it remembers it whenever it's disconnected?

    I've had it in and out a few times while I've been fitting a mike for the SDS and not needed to put the code in again.

    Maybe Nigel can enlighten us?

    No on-line places that just need the serial number?

    Jeefro, perhaps you could try to contact the previous owner. By that I mean 'Googling' his family name, town he is living in, and any other information (such as first name etc)..... If you know the town, you can also look online at the local telephone directory. Good luck mate.

    Can't find him on your Gumtree account?
    If not, I know it's a fair trip, but could you not go back to see him?

    Very strange this!! You have only registered on Audi-sport this month, you don't have the fellas contact number (perhaps check your phone bill for numbers called around the time you got the RNS-e), you say the car does not remember the code, etc etc. it does not matter if the car is not the original donar car, once you put the code in once it should always remember it after, regardless what A3 it goes into, even when battery is disconnected.
    You could be completely legit mate, but your time of registration, questions and answers you are given all seem too suspicious.

    Who are you to say it's suspicious
    I have only had my a3 about 4 months

    I am a genuine person

    I am only trying to get some help I love and always have loved Audi
    It's my first Audi was before on the Vauxhall forums but I really can't stand vauxhalls anymore !
    A friend told me of this website he told me it was useful
    So I thought I would give it a try there is a lot of helpful information on here as I have done a lot of stuff to my car

    I am just looking for some help mate

    But people like you seem to ruin things like this be immediately jumping in saying things like "its suspicious" I'm just looking for help mate .

    Mate, you need to understand, we have had many threads like this in the past from newly registered users and turns out they were dodgy. Not trying to imply you are but you need to understand why.

    So I apologise if my suspicions are wrong fella.
    With regards to the seller, did you follow my advice and check your phone bill for calls made around that time? Then you can get hold of his number.

    I am withT-mobile and I can check calls going back to nearly a year when I log in on line, perhaps you could do the same with your phone provider??

    No offence meant, good luck with your search.
