    I'm looking for more information about the "remote control" in the centre for the RNS-E.

    All I could find so far are these three numbers:
    8P0 919 721 5PR
    8P0 919 721 A 5PR
    8P0 919 721 B 5PR

    Did somebody retrofit this already? Is there some more information about the different versions, cabling, ...

    Thank you

    Hmm, now that I like.

    Keen to know about this myself.

    The A & B variants appear to be linked to auxiliary heater looking at the PR codes on ETKA.

    8P0 919 721 5PR multi switch with navigation and insert dash display
    8P0 919 721 A 5PR multi switch for aux heaters
    8P0 919 721 B 5PR multi switch with nav, insert dash display & aux heaters

    I found this link but the link to the wiring is down - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/car-entertainment/43010-were-can-i-buy-just-switches-bns-info-them.html

    Maybe S8Craig could help.

    I did find this -

    That looks like the satnav remote from something like an A6 - but the in-dash one... Are you sure it's a standalone unit and not just something that pop's into the instrument panel next to the electron handbrake in an A6?

    There's no IR receiver in an RNS-E, is there? So anything that you buy, you'll need an IR eye too.

    I've got a remote for mine, but it only controls the TV function via an IR eye in the glovebox.

    The only other "control unit" is the bit that sits between the steering wheel and the RNS-E.
