    thank you for this.
    so it does stay on and flashes even though the keys removed.

    Cant see any reason why not to leave it in 24/7?

    I've monitored this & it does appear to go to sleep as I have watched my phone & the BT connection when cars locked & say probably 10 minutes later disconnects fine.

    Mine stays active for about 10 min after locking the car, seems to power up again when you open the drivers door.

    I have had mine in the car for a long time now, no battery issues.

    The car is designed to be able to handle an iphone / ipod plugged into the same connector and they draw significantly more power, so don't stress about it.

    I got one of these about 2 months ago and have no issues with it.

    I have the RNSE V1 and it works well with iOS7, I can use Spotify and the tune2air from my MFSW controls with no problems. Any music that plays on my phone goes straight through the car now. I've got traktor on my phone which shows how good this thing is as there is literally no lag when putting effects on, bringing songs in etc. Which IMO is amazing for wireless technology!

    As soon as you sit in the car it connects up fine (and doesn't interfere with the handsfree bluetooth either).

    Best £50 purchase for the car, easily!

    MK1 doesnt support ami, that ebay dongle may plug into the older crappy ipod unit, but you wont get track, artist or album data, only ami will provide this & that requires a mk2 rns-e as a base for ami fitment, we fit all these systems.

    Stealing my pic eh :)

    AMI is highly recommended, only gripe is that shuffle doesn't stay on if you turn the car off but you can't have everything ;)

    Just a quick warning I've just updated to ios8 GM and the Bluetooth is messed up now on phone calls not playing through Bluetooth.
    Also music plays in the background now when running traktor which can not be stopped.
    Has anyone else upgraded to ios8??

    Has anyone got a solution to the iOS 8 with no talking via rnse Bluetooth. It's a right pain in the neck.

    Android..... In all serious it looks like people are still having problems even with 8.0.2, some people have found resting the phone helps other just changing the name and repairing. Apple really need to fix this BT issue and the other problems with this version of IOS.

    Just wanted to drop a note here since this thread was useful when I was researching. I bought a 2006 A3 with the RNS-E (and xm and bluetooth phone) and after a bunch of research got the Grom BT3 to stream music via bluetooth which seems to work (since I don't care about xm or the cd multichanger)

    Hi stumbled on this thread,

    will the tune2air work with my glove box ipod dock?

    which looks like
    [​IMG]

    its connected to a Audi Concert System

    I brought a similar product a while ago and when i had it plugged in it wouldn't power up.

    Currently I have a ageing ipod which I loathe bringing out the car and booting up itunes, I'm not interested in song info just want to be able to stream from my Android phone to the car, Spotify would be a plus but not necessary

    edit: image was huge picked a random one off google which was smaller

    So how is this item proving with the latest iOS firmware please? Thinking of buying one as a bit tired of the old fashion lead jobbie.
    Thanks in advance

    The Ami is factory fitted and the RNS runs on the latest firmware. I have tried in the past another Bluetooth and usb cable direct to the iPhone and same story got audio only on the left side. [​IMG]

    Maybe its not factory fit. There is a slight difference in the pin outs of the AMI for the A4/A5/Q5 and the A3/TT/R8 that I know about and using the wrong interface cable between the RNS-E and the AMI causes the sound to be lost or very very quiet on one channel. I know this as it happened to me when I retrofitted an AMI to an RNS-E with the wrong harness.
