    What do these units display on startup.
    Do they read track names off CD's

    They just go to the station name on startup if i remember rightly.

    They only read the track info etc if you burn a mp3 cd from itunes for example.

    They just display 'LOADING' or something like that while it loads your CD.

    When playing CD's, they'll display track names on regular CDs that have CDText, and when playing MP3's, it will display either track name, artist or album name from the ID3 tags (you can press a button to choose which), or the file name if you don't have ID3 tags on the MP3's. I use CDex to rip my CDs to MP3 format, and haven't any issues with displaying track names etc.

    thankyou all for you useful help and info.

    It should really be saying S3 on startup to keep in line with the rsn-e setup.
    Shameful really

    Isn't that some more clever marketing by Audi though to make the sat nav even more appealing?

    Agreed.
    Annoying though really.
    S3 should have a colour DIS to say the least.
