    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    In an A3 I'm only willing to do Symphony II conversions to RNS-E. I don't want to get involved in concert systems at all.

    Cost would be 1000 and woud take around 3 hours.

    I have to admit I have not done an A3 concert to RNS-E conversion. But I don't believe it's as simple as the other thread makes it out to be.

    S3 8P retro fit

    Hi

    I'll be purchasing an 8P S3 in the near future, however, i will not be paying Audi for the Satnav.

    how much will the install be if i were to spec a double din head unit?

    Do you take the wiring back to the fin on the roof?

    What is the warranty on the unit?

    Thanks and regards

    Retro Fitting Original Audi or VW Sat Nav

    I just had Retro fitted to my Brand New RS4 Sat/Nav System from www.satnavsystems.com.
    These guys are very quick and professional. I just had new system fitted within 48 hours for 1199 plus VAT. A qualified Audi engineer come to my house installed, programmed and coded everything to factory spec. with latest VAS-5053 Original Audi Diagnostic Tool.
    This guys are not the cheapest, but they are the only in the UK who offer a full 12 months warranty on parts and labor with qualified Audi engineer. I have done a research for almost a month before I found SatNav System.com -in the end my local Audi Dealer has recommended me to them.
    I have spent almost 60k on my car and did not want some cowboys to damage my beauty!!
    My full recommendation to all of you!!!

    899 if you have a double din fitting and I do provide 12 months warranty with my systems as well.

    If you do not have a sharksfin already then a new one is not fitted, instead a submarine antenna is used.

    I'm very interested in getting the sat-nav system in my car. Please could you tell me how much it would be to convert to sat-nav + bluetooth + IPod?

    The car is an 06 A3 SE with a concert CD and BOSE.


    Thanks

    Hi Craig

    I've finally got the missus to agree to let me have my Symphony II changed to the RNS-E. How soon can you fit me in? I'm in Liverpool so local, do I come to you or vice versa?

    Have a couple of questions:

    I'm tempted to have the bluetooth phonekit fitted at the same time, am I missing much by not having the multi-function steering wheel?? Can calls be made / ended via the touch screen on the RNS-E?

    When you fit the IPOD interface with the RNS-E does it display the ID3 tags on the screen?

    Also, I've been tempted for a while to try and get some screens for the kids in the back seat to keep them happy on long journeys, how easy would this be and can the RNS-E be wired to the rear headrests to play dvd's in the back?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    Hopefully you can fit me in by Christmas as this is my pressie to me

    I can fit you in for RNS-E & Bluetooth almost immediately. You could pop along to me.

    MFSW will give you voice control of the phone kit and the ability to scan the phone book and make calls from the wheel controls

    But you can see the phone book on the nav system and initiate calls from that, and see who's calling etc.

    None of the CD changer connected Ipod interfaces show ID tags, only Track 1, track 2 etc.

    As for rear screens, the RNS-E cannot play DVD's. You need additional kit to add a video input and play the DVD.

    Hi Craig,

    I've just picked up my new car and would like to reftro fit the RNS-E unit and would appreciate your help in answering a couple of questions please mate?
    I have an '06 A3 2.0TDI Sline which has the Bluetooth phone prep, Bose system and MFSW, it also has the Symphony II head unit..
    I have a sneaky feeling that my missus may be getting me a unit from ebay for christmas but i'm a little worried about compatibility

    Will the unit work from the off with the bluetooth, Bose and MFSW or will it need to be coded with Vagcom?

    Would also appreciate it if you could give an idea of how much to install/setup for me please and any other parts i may need, and a price for supply and install would be great just incase Santa doesn't bring me an RNS-E lol!!

    Apologies for all the questions mate, TIA and feel free to PM with any pricing etc...

    A big thanks for the install today, it was great watching a genius at work!!

    Everything is fine with the RNS-E, had a problem with the bluetooth dropping off every 2 minutes but a quick search on here and I realised it was my phone (Sony Ericsson K800i), I deleted my contacts and restored them and it then worked fine.

    I figured out the Dension I-Pod adapter, select CD6 and this gives you access to the Dension menu via the FF and RW buttons, cycle through till the I-Pod displays 'Access I-Pod UI' and press and hold the FF button on the RNS-E, this puts it into I-Pod UI mode.

    If anyone is considering having the RNS-E fitted, my advice is get it done. I've been using a Tom-Tom and this blows it out of the water in my opinion, and if you get the RNS-E then you should definately spend the extra and have the Bluetooth phone prep fitted - this is by far the most impressive part for me and something which I'll be using every day.

    Cheers

    Hanley

    It will need some coding of the car/rns-e & bluetooth to work fully.

    I can do the install for you, PM for details if your wife provides you with a nice pressy.

    Or I can do the whole job, supply and install for 899

    Question are they pulling my pants down?

    just bought a 2002 A4 2.5 tdi quattro sport with concert II, and have been quoted greater part of 1500 to fit RNS-E unit. Is this about right, does anyone know if i can have it done cheaper.
    Help appreciated.

    Craig may well be able to do this cheaper, but the reason it's so expensive is that your car will need a double-DIN cage to accept the RNS-E. If you had Symphony II the RNS-E will swap straight in.

    Craig is the guy who started this thread. He does a Sat-Nav install service that's been used by many members of the forum.

    Double DIN is the size of the headunit on the sat-nav and symphony units. Because you have a concert (which is single DIN) the install involves more work and is thus more expensive.

    Have a read through this thread, you'll see that Craig answers many similar questions.....

    Craig would probably be able to get them easily, but if not look on eBay (extend your search to "European Union", as a lot of RNS-E stiff comes from Germany). I recall they're around the 100 mark, but as always with eBay, the price and service varies.

    VAGparts do the double din cages for for the A4 B6 for about 30 if anyone is interested. I was contemplating tackling this myself but think I'll leave it to the experts.

    Just read this thread, think I have it all in my head, but just to confirm! I have an 8l S3, (2003) with a concert single disc and Bose.
    Can you retro fit the RNS E to mine, I know I'll need the double din unit? Or dont you do them on the 8L chassis, on the 8P A3 ??

    If you can do it can you email me a price? At present I have no cd changer, but have just sourced one, needs fitting!
    Cheers
