    "ianh" on here has retrofitted it to his b6 cab (I think he said retrofit). He sent me pics over xmas as I was looking to buy an A4.

    Id have it if the car was already spec'ed but would never retrofit it as id never ever ever use it. Cant really see why you would just invest in an RNS-E

    Strange as you can pick the genuine article from ebay.de for around £70. Look for innenspiegel.

    As far as im aware, if you had the RNSE sat nav then the compass was not available as an option (i could be wrong) as there is a compass on the satnav.

    So how much did the guy accept? Im tempted to get this myself!

    I don't have RNSE - A tomtom does the trick when required & I have a concert II head unit in the front, with a 20GB Phatnoise cartridge mounted in the boot & bluetooth through the MFSW.

    I bid 65.60 euros for the mirriw, so including packing got it for 80 euros = £69.25 (paypal).

    Made a bit of a mistake, I should have bid lower to start - but never mind - mines DHL'ing it's way to me.

    Mirror compass arrived today and it look all of 10 minutes to remove the existing mirror, fit the new one and configure the compass.

    Cool!

    The RNS-E can display a compass on the DIS when you don't have a route set - that's derived from the GPS signal.

    The compass in the mirror is purely magnetic and has to be calibrated depending on where you live to compensate for the difference between magnetic North and true North.
