    Question RNS-E nav plus

    hi,
    i have the above in my S3 and was trying to get the nav CD to come out of the unit but it wont eject any eiders on this?

    also,
    i am trying to get some music in the car other than the radio, i have the ipod connection in glove box but i dont use apple and have the galaxy s5, is there anyway to blue tooth my music to the stereo or any connections i could get to make the ipod dock fit the galaxy s5?

    and finally,
    i have some sdhc 2g and 4g cards, will these work in the head unit and i think i heard somewhere that the file has to read mp3 ant the end or start of it but not sure so any info would be great

    thanks

    DVD is probably locked in, needs recoding to allow ejection of discs.

    2-4GB SD cards can be used with MP3 file formats, not sdhc cards.

    Only way to stream music is to use either an aftermarket solution or upgrade the head unit & fit the audi ami system, but this wont give you track/artist/album data without using an iphone to stream from as the ami dongle only has full interaction with apple devices atm, whereas Samsung Galaxy handsets don't integrate aswell yet, this is system is fairly expensive, great system but big outlay, could always get an ipod 160GB & use that with ami.

    there is a like dock station in my glove box, looks like the ipod slides in and plugs itself into the connection at the bottom of the dock station.

    which brings me to a question, do any ipods fit as in nano and so on ?

    does the unit have a CD/TV or MEDIA button beside the RADIO button?

    might be a later unit with AMI?

    i have tried a ipod nano in the connection in the glove box and it plays ok but only shows info on the unit as track 1 track 2 and so on with no names, do i need a newer ipod or a different one for the names to be displayed or is it my head unit does not support this function which is a shame, only thing that has/is letting the car down.
