    A quick note to thank Marmite for his assistance with coding my RNS-E unit to make it work with the Colour DIS in my S4, and also a link for potential upgraders out there.

    This info is invaluable when specifying the options you have:

    If anyone wants more info on what I did for this install (upgrade from Symphony II with BOSE), please let me know.

    This is very interesting :idea: - when I retro fiitted the RNS-E to my A4; I heard the colour DIS was not possible (well it was but a big expensive job which included a new DIS etc)

    So can this be done on red DIS? I'd love to have the high pixel colour DIS

    :rockwoot:

    Thanks :icon_thumright:

    if you only have the red dis fitted then you will need to replace it with the colour dis.

    you can't re-program the red dis to become a colour dis but you can vag a colour dis to work with the rns-e so you should be able to program a red dis to work with the rns-e....

    You CAN recode the red DIS to work with an RNS-E in the same way and with the same codes as the colour DIS,.... BUT the red DIS on the B6/B7 has a bug that means it doesn't display the navigation instructions unless you turn the RNS-E off and back on AFTER setting guidance active.

    This issue has been discussed at length on www.navplus.us

    I think I jumped the gun here . . . I have the cluster working with the RNS-E

    One thing I have notice re the bug . . when you get in, if you wait about 45 sec to minute before turning the ignition - the RNS-E kinda boots it self up in 'sleep' mode (you can see the screen go a dark grey from black) - once it has done this, when you start your car the cluster shows the compass without switching the unit on/off!

    I hope this makes sense . . . can anyone else check this on their retro-fitted RNS-E??

    Cheers

    Sheraz
