    Sat Nav installation service

    Hi, I'm offering a supply and installation service of RNS-E DVD based sat nav systems for A3, A4, A6 and D2 chasis A8/S8 cars. I carry stock of HU's, TV tuners and all the bits to fit them to standard double din cars. I will not be offering facia ugrades.

    Standard installation including 12 months warranty is Ł1000 and that will include the latest 2005 DVD, all wiring for CD changer/telephone and BOSE where applicable. VAG coding included for your car to match tyres, etc.

    TV upgrades areavailable for existing TV installs when upgrading to RNS-E at a reasonable cost.

    Upgrade your CD based sat nav to DVD based, older pre 2002 cars can be done, but with a few caveats regarding DIS and clusters.

    PM me for details.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Interesting post, i was trying to find out installing one of these in my 2001 facelift S3, i take it that it is possible to to this in my car, do you know it there is a model that just slots in or will i need to chop about with face plate of the satnav.

    regards

    Chris

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Chris, I read your earlier post with interest and whilst I have an A3 unit here, I think that the A6 unit is more suited to the pre 2002 cars. Yes it will need to be cut down, but it has the analogue speed pulse input required for non can bus vehicles.


    As you need to generate illum etc on the can bus for the RNS-E to work correctly,on non can bus cars this can be done with an add on unit, but pushes up the price another Ł100 or so.

    You may be lucky and have can bus on your car, if so then installation is simpler still. My S8 is a 2002 model and has a mixture of the 2 canbus and analogue. So I can pick up the signals from either.

    Hi,

    I'm interested in getting an RNS-E fitted to my Sportback. It currently has the Symphony II/Bose HU so i take it its just a plug in jobby? Craig have you got stock at the moment?

    thanks

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Just had a search around. It's just an optional adapter which works with the RNS-E. 385 smackers for the A3!! Are they mad?

    According to Craig, posting on Tyresmoke earlier this month, the Parrot CK3300 is compatible and is about one 8th of the cost.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Hi Craig

    Quick question, already have satnav + in my 98 A6 but looking at adding the TMC unit, as a friend had one in his nissan and really helped in a major accident and diverted us around it, How much do you charge ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Many thanks

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Craig, how do you go about cutting the RNS-E to fit the A3/S3, i'm about to fit the RNS-E in my S3,
    I've got a dremel. Do you cut it free hand or have you a template?

    Cheers
    Chris

    A hacksaw and patience my friend. Undercut and then smooth down to fit.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    Insert a piece of gloss black trim there like tiling trim or similar. The closest match tou can get to the dash. You can darken up the RNS-E to match using a KIWI magic polish sponge. the RNS-E absorbs the black, but the white of the buttons does not.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    What RNS-E do you have, I'm guessing you bought an A6 one as this work well in older cars.

    I don't have any pictures of the A3 I did, it was a while back now before I started doing installs as a service to others.

    Yes I supply and fit, for your car, you already have an RNS-D installed yes?

    Would the TMC be of any use to you except for the TMC nav section,you have no canbus in that car so the DIS display will not work.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    TMC units are around 150 to 200 euros with all the cables, but I need to clarify your nav system before we can say ye it will work.

    Maybe you can send some pics of your nav to my email addres or post on here, NAV comes in 4 types as far as I'm aware.

    BNS - DIS only, controls by hand brake
    RNS-C early model double din unit
    RND-D later model double dinunit DX
    RNS-E DVD based latest model

    Which one do you think you have?

    From what I believe it is an RND-D, as it is CD based and i think it was taken from a 2001 audi. Hope this helps????

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    How would i get around the fact that i have the climate panel above a gap/flip panel, cause mine is just the single din stereo CD player, like this, i know its not the best of angles but let me know what can be done please.

    Re: Sat Nav installation service

    You need a double din conversion to be done. Not the cheapest option on an A3, but can be done.

    Once this has been achieved you can fit in an RNS-E
