    Hi,
    Can someone tell me if the upgrade Sat-Nav on the new S3 has any preouts to attach an amp?
    Many Thanks

    The current sat-nav unit doesnt have any pre-outs. Facelift might be different though, but I doubt it.

    It does have line level outs, so you can add RCA's without too much hassle.

    AFAIK line out = pre-out!

    Of course, but a lot of people take pre-outs to mean a direct connection for an RCA lead to feed your amps.

    I though that was called RCA-out?

    OK, So i've ordered the car with the Bose sound upgrade, anyone know how the Bose amp connects to the Sat-nav? or if the Bose amp has a pre-out?

    thanks

    Although I seem to remember that the voltage levels found are lower than a normal pre-out.

    The RNS-E has 4 pre-outs for LF, LR, RF & RR plus a signal ground and an Amp Enable pin.

    The pre-outs are 1V level IIRC, not the more common 4V.
