    RNS-E question

    Looking to buy a certain 2010 rns-e off a certain auction site but im wondering if i need to move any wires so my ipod will still work i.e. do i have to swap wires to the 32 pin plug. I currently have the Symphony headunit

    Not completely sure but if you have Bose, then yes. I have Aux in but Hazzy's disabled this because of some wiring issues with then 2009 rns-e. Pardon the pun but its all a bit of a haze now....

    Curiously, how much is the unit? I'm on the lookout for a 2010 unit too. I noticed one on eBay close to the 1K mark but its in Hungary and I'm reluctant to exchange such large amounts of money without seeing the goods so it would have to be cash on collection.

    Good luck

    The old and new RNSe have the same pinouts.

    New one

    1,000.

    Is it really worth that much more than a 2009?

    Yeah cause it does ami properly & faster SD larger capable/readers & has proper track listings, also its new & audi charge 2.5k, the last reason should do it at least, lol

    Plus it has a nice higher res screen, lol

    I know audi charge 2.5k, and that it's better than the previous RNS-E, but for a grand there are much better double DIN units available. The AMI is stupidly slow to navigate if you've more than about 10 songs on your iPod and despite having a DVD drive, it still won't even play a DVD!

    Going slightly off topic here, but what would anyone suggest as a better unit to go for instead of the rns-e?? double din obviously...In my opinion I just dont think they are all that great to be honest.

    For a grand?

    If you've a bit extra:

    Compare those to the cost of an RNS-E, Audi Bluetooth kit, DVD player and an AV adapter for the DVD to connect to it.

    they look pretty tastey, i have been looking at a few alpine units recently. So much more for your buck with these units.

    I will admit for the price you dont get the most amazing feature set, but interms of integration it is nicer, but I have always rated pioneer in car & sony, well sony used to but not sure what they're upto atm.

    Last I saw Sony were making some of the tackiest looking kit ever, not a patch on the quality they used to have.
