    Hi all, newb here :yes:
    I recently fitted my a3 with the rns-e unit and I'm very impressed with it,
    however when I try to see what version of software I'm running all I see is: X__
    is this normal as the unit is running perfectly?
    any advice would be great
    thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    That rns has been hacked probably to change the pin code for it, so potentially stolen.

    Thanks for the reply,
    It was purchased off eBay from a seller that has various rns-e units for sale and the business seems reputable?
    Is there anyway around this hack as it sounds a little 'rogue' to me?
    cheers

    Yeah you'd need older firmware dvd & latest, plus vcds to fix that.

    Ebay is a good start for a genuine older version, then use your current to update it again.

    To put the rns in downgrade mode.

    If that's the case, won't the PIN be void if you change the firmware?:think:
