    Phone with RNS-E

    Hi,

    Hopefully going to get my RNS-E fitted in the near future

    Just thinking while its in bits I might as well fit the bluetooth bits......

    I haven't searched as I also wanted to know if my Nokia N85 will work with it.


    Also what do I need to buy and what what will it cost?


    Regards,


    Jonathan


    p.s do i need a mfsw as well?

    Have a read here you'll see what other bits you need to fit the Audi system. You might want to contact S8craig or CraigyB (http://www.tclsatnav.com) on here as he'll most likely have the bits in stock and can fit it for 399. Top bloke, done loads for the guys on here.

    MFSW? erm it would be a good idea otherwise you'll have no push to talk button. If you don't have cruise you might also need a new steering controller to get the buttons to work.

    If you do have cruise control do you have a rough idea of how much it will cost to buy the mfsw and fit it?

    See ebay for a MFSW, I think "NHN" has one for sale on here. Fitting? no idea, have a search around, there's been a few threads about this recently.

    Sorry guys the wheel sold ages ago but check on the bay as they've dropped in price tremendously

    Do the bluetooth install yourself, it'll save you anything upto 200 & its not to hard plus you learn something about your car

    The kit if you are patient can be bought for between 200-250 if you buy individually as others sell for about 400 from one seller but i know you can get cheaper if buy from multiple sellers from uk & de ebay sites

    Yeah new slip ring & steering control module are possibily needed depending on age of car really, vagcom scan can tell you if needed or not

    Strange but I contacted my local Audi and they said the MFFBSW cant be retro-fitted and is a factory-only option!

    That's a typical dealer answer I'm afraid. Most are unaware that this stuff can be done.

    & you believed them after being on this site & readng how we fitted ours, strange.

    Also they're unaware of how to fix things aswell, lol, hence the name fitters rather than mechanics, thats why the forums are so good cause its like having a specialist for each part of your car

    But if you believe what they tell you then guess its gonna be a bit boring for you this site, cause you'll never fit anything you want, lol

    It can be done full stop, take my word for it & any of the boys on here with them installed.

    Anyway did some tidying up of temp wiring today John, fixed a fault on the adaptives control module which my silly temp power wire shorting so result, finally got my DRL's wired in & working of the oem new alum switch, result & was gonna connect the main beams but repair wires wrong size so have to do tomorrow now, but happy wirings alot tidier as was getting on my nerves

    ****e I forgot to check the adaptation & Basic Settings for the comfort menus, ok tomorrow

    Didnt say that, was just passing on what my local Audi said. I've read about people on here doing it, so I thought it was odd they said it was impossible when you guys dont seem to have a problem doing it.

    I also need to get BT retrofitted but could do with getting a vat receipt so that I can claim some of the cash back through my company. I tried my local dealer but they didn't know what parts I needed, they also told me that if any wires are cut then it will void the warranty on the electrics.

    Would any wires need cutting for the BT install?

    Is there somewhere I can source the parts where I can get a vat receipt, i.e. not eBay?

    just SD or SDHC too?

    cards are cheap as chips these days, like a 10er for a sandisk sdhc 8gb

    plus why is the BT module soooo dear?

    my pioneer hu has BT USB Aux etc etc but just no satnav (main reason i wanted rns-e) i just dont want to do away with it

    think it'll b dodgy havin both rns-e and my headunit in....
