    They're really not simple answers mate. You have the Nav plus right?

    Ok:

    1) You can have the RNS-E (the Nav-Plus unit) coded to fit an aux-in which would be wired up to a 3.5mm jack for audio only. The RNS-E then has an option to switch to it.

    2) There are a few ways to get an AV aux input. The cheapest way is using a basic AV input like this:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AV-Multimedia...e_ET?hash=item19b46dea40&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    This wires into the RNS-E and gives you the ability to plug anything in with RCA leads. iPod, PS3, DVD etc but doesn't give you control over it.

    A better (but a lot more expensive) way to do it is using the Alpine kit:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-RNS-E-Al...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item5884786a8c

    Which wires in to the RNS-E also but allows you to control the iPod completely.

    3) Costs are given for the items but with both of the above you would need to enable Video in Motion (VIM) for anyone to be able to watch the videos above a certain speed. There are a number of ways to do this starting from free but complicated and going up to £75 odd for someone else to do it for you.
