    Ok so here it goes...I currently have an rns-e installed with Navi.also the phone preparation and Bluetooth are factory installed.
    I bought an alpine which includes microphone,gps antenna etc.
    Do I need to use those cause obviously there is already a microphone installed with the current configuration.
    Am I missing something?

    Not dumb mate. Mike should fit if it's the little Jack plug. Not sure about quality of the reception though

    Thanks for replying mate.it is the small so that’s out.as far as reception goes I didn’t have any problems so far with the stock unit.i did raise though the mic sensitivity just a bit through VCDS.
    I just don’t want to mess with trim removal etc.so I guess maybe the gps antenna plug could also fit into the new unit.
    Fingers crossed!
    I did buy a connect2 harness for the specific vehicle (A3,8p) so I guess I should be covered...
    I have an appointment with the fitter on Monday so I will update !

    Hi I have android pumpkin unit I did all the research due to issues with the rear speakers. On none bose and amped. Mines is none bose with sub in boot. I got all the correct connectors in the box but I went to Halfords and purchased thread just in case my system was simple plug and play. Hope this helps
