    Hi guys,
    I have just ordered 2010 RNS-E Mk1 head unit and I am a bit confused about maximum size of SD cards.

    I have read that 2010+ models are compatible with 32GB cards, and <2010 units are compatible only with 4GB size.

    So, my question is: Is Mk1 2010 model compatible with 32GB cards or not?

    Sorry for double post but I have got another question and I dont want to start new topic:
    I have got 2012 8P3 SportBack, with Chorus double din head unit with 4 active speakers, no SW control, no BOSE, no onboard computer (I am not sure how its called, because I am not native english speaker, so I hope you get me :)).

    Do I need any reductions or coding? Or it is just plug n play?
    Thank you for answers :)

    PS: Photo of my wires and connectors is in attachmenent

    Yours is a 192, so will only take 4gb SD cards (not SDHC). Can't say about the plug, sorry.

    Thank you for your answer :)
    And how many files can I use? I have read that 512, which is limit of card or 400 which is limit of RNS-E.

    So, what is true?

    I think the only problem is the file name length. I have the MK2 version and if the name is too long it won't show the file.
    Regarding the connectors, I think it should work what you have there.
