First post, so be gentle
I picked up a '55 plate A3 3.2 V6 Sportback on Saturday and although I'm loving everything about the car (my previous was a rather tame in comparison A4 '11 plate TDIe) I have a couple of issues with the nav which I'm sure are easy fixes:
N00b question first, is this the RNS-E you all talk about?
Second question: When the dealer purchased it (well, car sourcer clever lady) she said the radio received perfect reception. I can't pick up a single station. I know there's a couple of FM boosters in the boot, so I had a look.
The first (large) one doesn't seem to get any power on any of the connections when I "voltmeter'd" it.
I presume there should be +12V somewhere? What fuse controls the FM amps - could it be that simple? I did a quick scan of the fuses in the driver's side cubby but couldn't find a blown on in any that seemed relevant from the lookup table.
Next, the mini amps, I have one on the left hand side, but on the right, there's nothing - just a blue and black cable + connector hanging off the windscreen element. Should there be something like this on the other side too?
And final question - as you can see from the first picture, I have Phone Prep Low without any useful cradle, just the interface on the dash. Can you get a "universal" holder for the mount that might support MicroUSB on a Samsung Galaxy S3 - or can you add a bluetooth module to that to add a BT function to the car?
Thanks in advance
