    Yeah it's certainly very user friendly. My little sister managed to navigate through the menu options without a problem whilst I was taxi-ing her & her mates!!
    Another minor fault with the RNSe....only 5digit postcode search. Most portable devices have 6 or 7 digit postcode search. But Im just being far too picky!!

    If you have £600 to play with and are choosing between a remap and RNSe - go for RNSe. I think the SD cards are brilliant. My iPod dock is totally redundant to be honest.

    Sorry - I'm a stuck record at the moment. Remap remap remap .......

    This is where the SDS becomes your best buddy. You can spell out any city, street, house number, intersection, junction by speaking to the unit. You can also call up a list of your previously selected destinations and pick one by calling out a number. You can also push the PTT button on the wheel and say "Navigate to xxx" where xxx is any one of the voice tags you have assigned to the stored destinations.

    I had the Garmin 660 before (actually I still have it upstairs), and when I got the RNS-e at first I was a little disappointed with the fiddly-ness of the destination entry but with SDS enabled using it is a breeze.

    8.1 will be your map version.

    if you press the "CAR" button and then click on Version you will see three entries:

    SW (Software Version)
    HW (Hardware Version)
    MAP (Map part number).

    SW should be 0650.

    Have you applied the SDS hack?

    I'm just uploading the SDS hacked SW0650 now, so if anybody wants it let me know and I'll point you to the files.

    You'll need a blank CD and maybe access to VAGCOM depending on which version of the software you are currently running.

    Good to see another quality retrofit! And £550 is good money these days for a unit that's in a lot of demand still. I think they cost more than A4 units because there seems to be fewer on the market.

    To get the most from your RNS-E, make sure you head over to http://www.navplus.us. It's a forum dedicated to all Audi navigation and there's tonnes of useful advice, tips and guides.

    Incidentally, the sat nav in my Prius was also produced by Aisin (who manufacture the RNS-E) and there's several visual clues that it shares a lot of software with the RNS-E. The intersection zoom is virtually identical for one thing, as well as the navigation lady's voice and other map views albeit at a better pixel resolution. The main difference though is that it uses the Prius' touch-screen display which works well.

    Ah. Maybe that's why I didn't know about it. No - never heard of it. Do I need Vagcom to access this functionality then ?

    You need to create an SDS hacked update disc and stick it into your RNS-e to update the software.

    Just managed to snag a copy of the 2008 Map DVD for £34 inc postage!!

    http://cgi.ebay.ie/DVD-RNS-E-AUDI-N...yZ115603QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Some dude in Lisbon and he seems to have sold a fair few of them recently. Not sure if they're copies, but for 40 euro it doesn't matter. They're going for upwards of STG£100 elsewhere. He'll probably have more of them in a couple of days if anyone's interested.

    Might even stick my 2007 DVD up for sale if the new one works properly!

    If you're running Sw650 then it is an 08 disc. When do you get the unit?

    Marc when you say a map do you mean when you select an alert from the list?

    All I can get is a list, you pick one and then see it on the map. I wondered if there is a setting so you can see an area around your current location and then any issues are displayed.

    Cheers
