      Hey. I wonder if you can help me. I'm still having trouble upgrading my RNS-E to 0220 from 0200. I believe it might need some coding to get it to accept the upgrade and the 2014 maps? - I'm in Redland and would be great if there is a chance you might be able to help me out.... Thanks in advance. Gary

        Hi there again.... Quick update... I've managed to get the software up to 0220 and it's reading the 2014 maps well now... so that's cool - Just one small thing left,my system has never displayed the speed limit. I believe that this is a case of switching channel 17 to 2 to enable it in the setup menu - I'd love to get this working, is this something you might be able to help out with please...? Cheers again. Gary

        Hi Gary, I haven't seen speed limits displayed on an RNS-E, are you sure it's possible??

      Hey Staz , I was wondering if you be able to help me with an engine light fault, i think its the auxiliary water pump or sensor as it turns on and off again.

      I work down the road from you, so hoping to pop in during lunch.

        Hi Chris, didn't see this message. Do you still need some coding done?

      Hey Staz, I'm having trouble upgrading my maps and firmware on my RNS-e in my s-line '08 A3. It was installed by an ex audi fitter. I'm stuck on 0200. I wonder if you might be able to help as you look like you are just down the road from me (Redland)! - Any help would be great. Cheers. Skip

      Hiya bud,

      Just checked out the VCDS map, I'm often over Bedford way and was wondering if you could enable going home/leaving lights and Hill Hold Assist on my 2011 A3? Would be more than happy to supply a couple of beer tokens in exchange!

      Let me know mate,

      Hi Staz, ASN member Paddy has suggested I contact you as you are the man for air con problems. I have an A3 S Line 2.0TDI 170 2007 with dual zone climate. Problem I have is that the drivers side works fine but the passenger side blows out cold air all the time. Does not change at all. Paddy said he had similar problem and let Stealers sort out as car was under warranty. My car obviously isn't and I would prefer not to take it to them. Any advice would be good. Cheers. Iain

      morning - I have a problem with my MMI in an A5, it will not import tracks from CDs - I'm told that the system is disabled for legal reasons but that it can be re-enabled using VAG COM, can you assist?

      Hi Staz
      I notice on the VCDS map that you are in Bedford - not far from me in Letchworth. Do you know any good auto-electricians in the area that might be able to repair / rebuild my faulty A6 03 air-con unit? Regards - John C
