    I have the newest software for the RNS-E which is 0500 as opposed to 0460 on a CD. PM me if anyone wants the disc sent to them or I can if you want e mail you the files, then you just have to burn them as a data CD and play it in the unit and it will automatically update.

    Not sure whats in the update, i know for sure it contains all the S3, RS4, TT etc start up screens.

    I thought the newest software was version 0550?

    The latest is 0550 but this on the two 2007 DVDs. The 2006_1 DVD came with software 0460, and 0500 was available on a separate CD (I know, because I'm running 0500 right now!).

    I think 0550 is the software that comes on the 2007 nav discs, the discs that have TMC enabled.

    0500 was never released on a DVD, just an inbetween type thing that is to be updated by CD.

    Dont quote me on this though, I am only going on the info from the navplus forum.

    They are offering a firmware update, not NAV disks, so I dont think there is a problem with it.

    No, your car will be 0500 and no TMC, but should be eligible for the freeby or (yet to be decided if there is a charge) update from Audi.

    Sweet thanks craig, so how would i go about installing this firmwARE? I'm guessing you insert the disk and tell the unit that there is a update on the disk?

    They've already clearly stated the upgrade will be free of charge and, although it's not 100% clear what age of vehicle will be covered, an Oct 2006 will have no problems getting sorted for free.

    You simply insert the DVD! The RNS-E recognises the new software and will begin installing it. The unit usually reboots twice during the install - just be patient and it will complete by itself. All your settings are preserved too.
