    Yes does eventually turn of, but why would you wnat to leave it running, just get it coded properly, end of :)

    No, fitting/coding an rns has never in my knowledge voided a warranty.

    out of interest, what are the cases when it doesnt need coding? is it dependent on model type, the previous unit you had in there, age of car etc, or other oem components being present or not present ( eg bluetooth phone prep)?

    How can you identify whether you have the Mk1 or Mk 2 unit?

    Its a 58plate if that helps.

    I have AMI. My Ipod went up the spout, so I bought an OEM AMI Lead with a Mini USB connector (£20 ish).

    Now running a 40GB ext hard drive i had knocking about, plugged into the AMI, works perfectly, and shows track info on RNS and DIS. So much easier to load than the F'ing about act you have to do with itunes.

    Anyone know what year they changed the MK1 to a MK2 ? Been looking online at A3's and S3's from March 2010 ->> which have Sat Nav but not sure if these have the newer or older models. Thanks.

    I'd also like to know this because i'm thinking about upgrading to a mk2 unit, but i don't have a mk1 at the moment so could do with the above question answering.

    Oh and if it needs coding is there anyone in the West Yorkshire area that has any idea and leads to do so?

    I don't think it is classed as a mk3, he has probably advertised it as such because of the gloss black screen surround, which is the newest addition to the unit. Other than that its a living breathing mk2. Maybe he thinks it will attract more bidders :sm4:

    I experience the exact same thing. Have you ever gotten this figured out?
