    Looking to buy a certain 2010 rns-e off a certain auction site but im wondering if i need to move any wires so my ipod will still work i.e. do i have to swap wires to the 32 pin plug. I currently have the Symphony headunit

    Not completely sure but if you have Bose, then yes. I have Aux in but Hazzy's disabled this because of some wiring issues with then 2009 rns-e. Pardon the pun but its all a bit of a haze now....

    Curiously, how much is the unit? I'm on the lookout for a 2010 unit too. I noticed one on eBay close to the £1K mark but its in Hungary and I'm reluctant to exchange such large amounts of money without seeing the goods so it would have to be cash on collection.

    Good luck

    £1,000.

    Is it really worth that much more than a 2009?

    Yeah cause it does ami properly & faster SD larger capable/readers & has proper track listings, also its new & audi charge 2.5k, the last reason should do it at least, lol

    Plus it has a nice higher res screen, lol

    I know audi charge £2.5k, and that it's better than the previous RNS-E, but for a grand there are much better double DIN units available. The AMI is stupidly slow to navigate if you've more than about 10 songs on your iPod and despite having a DVD drive, it still won't even play a DVD!

    Going slightly off topic here, but what would anyone suggest as a better unit to go for instead of the rns-e?? double din obviously...In my opinion I just dont think they are all that great to be honest.

    I will admit for the price you dont get the most amazing feature set, but interms of integration it is nicer, but I have always rated pioneer in car & sony, well sony used to but not sure what they're upto atm.

    Last I saw Sony were making some of the tackiest looking kit ever, not a patch on the quality they used to have.
