    Hi I am in the process of fitting the Genuine Audi Bluetooth Kit to my
    RNS-E, have not seen anything about it on the forum

    We took the light unit down last night and it looked like there were 3 different microphones up there!!!!

    Although 1 is prob the alarm sensors and another is the microphone for the gamma there is a little round one that sits next to one of the lights and the other 2 sit on top of each other on the end of the light unit, just need to know... does another have to be added to allow use of the genuine b/tooth kit and does anyone have a part number you could give me?

    I have just seen that there are different part numbers for the b/tooth dongles?? Do I need to have a specific one for my A3 8P any help on this would be great too.

    One more thing....:happy:

    When fitting the b/tooth module under the carpet (below the drivers seat I think) we have seen in pictures a black box/case that the module sits in. Is this fitted standard as I have not had a chance to have a look. Have a feeling I may have to get this too......

    Thanks in advance for any help on this :applaus:

    If you havnt got btooth already you wont have a microphone unless you have phone prep as in cradle in dash or armrest, you need to buy a new mic for this, with bluetooth & I assume you'll use sds, the mic is wired to the rns 1st then back down to the module, the module goes under the passenger seat not drivers & it actually goes in a box which isnt standard, but I just cut out the foam to the shape of the module & then glued it with epoxy in place so nice & tight so no knocking about & no need to buy the box, worked 100%, as for which module, well all the modules I see on fleabay etc will work with your car, the things that look like microphones in headlight are the ultrasonics, ther micrphone slides into a small rectangular gap in the light fixing, voilaaaaaaa

    Oh of course remove the seat to do the work & connect up before replacing anything so you can test & check with vagcom all working, then put back together.

    Just read thread again, and when you say you assume I will use sds, being new to all this what does sds mean?

    I have already retro fitted the RNS-E and also in process of fitting a MFSW to go with it and the bluetooth. I have bought this loom for the b/tooth
    http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p379_Kabelsatz-Handyvorbeitung-Bluetooth-Audi-A3-8P---8P-Sport.html
    Do you know if the wires for the mic are in the red plug that's on the rns-e and loom??? Would it be best to wait until I have the loom to check... I think I have been looking at all this too long now and brain is going lol!!!!!!

    Will check out the vagcom thread, thanks :)

    If you have a quadlock connector in your car then I don't think that is the right plug. You need the small green one -

    Speech Dialogue System (think of Kight Rider Kitt) no it wont drive for you but you can cntrol functions of the rns-e with voice via the PTT button on the mfsw.

    The rns has a label on the top that tells you exactly where the mic wires go in/out so that will resolve your query.

    Oh & the picture of that loom is old, it comes with the multi plug for the bluetooth module end & then just wires the other end to connect into the loom with scotch locks or pins, its all fairly easy & obvious fella.

    SDS will only work if you 'hack' the RNS firmware which can in some caser render the rns un useable!... but people on here have done it successfully.
