    TV option

    Anyone know how easy it is to rewire the TV so that you can have it on whilst driving (for the sake of passengers obviously)....

    With the VAG stuff you need to buy an adapter cable to enable it. It is called "Video In Motion".

    I've bought a couple of these from a company called NavTV in Cardiff.

    Check them out here

    I called them before Christmas for some information on the RNS-E and they told me they were only able to activate the CD based navigation units, but that they hoped to have a solution for the DVD based option soon.

    Check out http://www.navplus.us as well - it's been done on there too, but I can't recall whether it was with VAG-COM or a special CD software update. I know the latter is being worked on (a group of users are trying to decompile the RNS-E software).

    nah, the cables sit in behind the head unit. you take the cable from the back of the head unit, put it into one end of the new cable, and put the other end of it into the head unit where the original cable was.

    The best solution is the tool to enable VIM on the HU without additional wires or parts, It does not affect the Navigation as the hardwired solution does.

    The cost to do is £79 and I have the tool. You need your Nav system PIN code to use the tool as the Nav system is reporgrammed out of the car.
