    Navigation Plus RNS-D Problem

    Hi all, new to this. My RNS-D is picking up 0 satellites, checked forums and the majority of people were saying it's def the GPS antenna so bought a hockey puck antenna, hooked it up but no joy. Bought this A6 around 6 months ago and the satnav was never working on it but only got round to having a proper look at it and can't find a whole lot of info on the internet about the RNS-D. Had a look at the software version and it seems to be up to date according to info I got on the net. Does anyone have any advice about where I go from here. Thanks in advance.

    I would chuck it and get the later RNS-E DVD based sat nav unit.

    I would love to because it seems everyone has nothing but good to say about the RNS-E but as I'd be only using it for long journeys which is not very often I don't think it would be justified buying a whole new system. I was hoping it was something as simple as the antenna but no such luck and thanks for the rapid reply B5NUT.

    It could be a bad connection inside the unit, take the top off and have a look. Another option would be to get a working unit off ebay, they don't fetch much £100 ish.

    Didn't realise they were that cheap, I suppose that justifies your 1st comment, ha ha. Will have to look out for a cheap 1 just to prove if it is or not the unit. Thanks.

    that's for a used RNS-D the RNS-E will be around 300-400 depending on condition.

    Cheapest I could find was £230. I have a friend with another A6 so if he has the same unit as me i could try his unit i suppose to check it out. Will prob end up blowing his unit aswell, ha ha.
