    As the title really, I assume the new ipod Nano will work in the Audi Ipod doc, but can anyone confirm just to be sure?

    Thanks

    Thanks guys. I have the ipod video jobbie in there at the moment, but thinking about getting a Nano just for the car.

    Still thinking about that one though.

    Afraid not, best way to get track names is to get an RNS-E. I am not sure if the phatnoise shows track names. Try the search function and you will find the answer.

    Edit
    Getting an RNS-E does not mean it will show track names with the ipod, but it will show track names if using SD cards in the RNS-E

    Get what and RNS-E? Unless of course you mean "an RNS-E" and you're talking about the MP3 card slots.

    I take it the iPod connection in conjunction with the RNS-E will not give track names. Would be great if it could.

    Yeah sorry an RNS-E and yes talking about SD slots. Fitted my RNS-E a couple of weeks ago and love it, just in process of putting music on SD cards. (thanks to Issac Hunt for supplying)
    I still have the dension ipod dock and think I will keep this as it does hold a lot more music and easier to sync with itunes.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    I'm very tempted to order my A3 with RNS-E and iPod connection, but plan to use the SD card slots as well to take advantage of track names. Is it an easy process to get a decent, clear list of track/album names on the RNS-E? Do you have to mess around with playlists (i.e. generate a playlist for each album or something like that)? What program do you use for managing your MP3 library, ripping CDs etc.?

    How much is the RNS-E list price?? I know its a lot! A lot of people order the standard concert (its now double din) and upgrade to the RNS-E later its far cheaper.

    I wouldn't bother with the audi ipod connection as it blocks out the use of the ipod and you have to use the first five playlists. I would fit the Dension Gateway 100 is cheaper than the audi one and far more functional, you can still use the ipod to find songs unlike the audi one.

    Regarding playlists etc on RNS-E someone on here will help better than I can but so far I have just used folders, I made a new folder ie Radio 1 then a sub folder Live Lounge then copied the music from itunes into the folder

    I take your point on the price, but as it will be a company car the price doesn't bother me too much! However, just for reference, would there be any Audi warranty issues etc. if choosing to upgrade later? Plus, where can the RNS-E unit be purchased from and who can install them?

    I currently have exactly the same iPod system as Audi in my Golf GTI, so I know what the limitations of it are and I've got used to them really. I'm sure the Dension has a few advantages, but I'm not keen on it being dashboard mounted and having to worry about removing my iPod everytime I leave the car.

    Cheers for the link. Gives me a bit more insight into what's involved. :sm4:


    I'm using a PC. I found a similar app called RNS-E MP3 Manager, but haven't had chance to try it out yet. It's not iTunes based, but can rip, copy to SD and create playlists on the SD.
