I've been looking around the internet (dangerous I know!) for running alternative navigation on the RNS-E. I have a RNS-E with the CD/TV button with 2012 maps however It really annoys me that I cannot see street names when I'm driving. To me viewing the nearby streets is really important when navigating as you may be looking for a specific road ahead of your current location.
In my golf I had a waywell Chinese navigation unit which TBH made the expensive RNS-E look retro (to start the navigation loads from an SD card not the DVD player) It ran IGO 8 maps which I thought was fantastic I could clearly see the road I was passing, which lane I should be in etc..
I've found a few videos from our friends in Russia where they use an RNS-E with IGO 8 maps however I cannot find any information on how they achieved this!

Does anyone know how it is done?
I am a fan on my R-NSE but If I'm honest its flaws are steering me towards buying one of the Chinese units...
