    Just bought an 03 a6 avant with an rnsd retrofitted,.it all works apart from it wont read the sat nav discs!

    Ive tried the discs in a different unit no problem so it must be the unit?

    It just says the disc is unreadable, only thing i could think to try is a lense cleaner, not very technical!!

    Any other suggestions would be gratefully recieved :)

    Cheers
    Jon

    I would try & get in there & clean the laser head with some tongue dabbed minimally damn cotton buds, dry of with another, rub it back/forth as the dirt gets burned on as per the rns-e.

    If units buggered, then upgrade to rns-e, much better unit by a mile.

    Oh, well try the lens cleaner, but I'd be surprised if it worked so well on a unit of that age, as rns-e units havnt had great success, I'm always cleaning the lasers by hand & works very well.

    Failing that I can offer to do it if you courier to me & courier back.

    Thanks for the offer mate but i dont have the knowledge or confidence to renove the unit myself so if paying someone to do it for me i may aswell pay them to fix it too, i love my cars but i dont mess about with i.c.e or interiors too fiddly :)
