Did you buy from new?
I am going to have to pull off the rear roof trim again to have a better look but i know that the two in question run down the driver`s side rear pillar where the one i took a picture of runs down the passenger side.FM radio antenna is in rear side glass and in rear glass it's never in shark antenna
Which option should i be looking for in the codes?When you say no mention you are talking about the converted PR codes You can convert them here http://www.audienthusiasts.com/articles_prcodes.html
US have a Sat radio option so on the sharkfin there should be 4 connectors white, black, red & blue. like the one shown here http://www.ebay.com/itm/05-11-AUDI-A6-AVANT-C6-3-2-ROOF-ANTENNA-SHARK-FIN-LIGHT-SILVER-METALLIC-/151471782698?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model:A6&hash=item23446bfb2a&vxp=mtr
You can get a 4H0 unit to work in an A6 you just have to change the car type, plus other setting in the hidden menu.
Thanks for the pin assignment , but did you post a picture too?Pin assignment for control unit 1 for information electronics -J794-

First of all thanks for the link it helped a lot.Could be pink is low does the connector fit the gray plug? My unit should be running the lager 8" display, but is working fine on the 7" one. If it does not fit then you would need to upgrade to the 7" display and you could just modify the current LVDS cable you already have have rather then buy a new LVDS cable.

When you started the system up before the removal of the protection , did the buttons around the shifter work?good news on getting the hdd version, yes the maps are stored on the hdd. the unit will be in component protection and that will need to be remove by your local audi dealer. You need to get the 7" display & instrument cluster trim (you should find both on ebay) I would fit the screen & trim before having CP removed.
I already had a trim that fitted the 7" as I had MMI 2G High but I had to change the screen, from the 2G to the 3G screen, its easy enough to remove the instrument cluster trim.
I have been to that site but goggle translate really sucks.I used a modified metainfo2.txt file with the Q7 767 firmware. There is some information on a German forum digital eliteboard about conversion of the A8 5F unit, the problem I found is they are not very help full even if you try and post in German, and some of the posts with the useful conversion information have been deleted. So I gave up asking and made my own file. Another way is to buy a Q7 5F module and change the faceplate, the downside is you have to find an A6 or A8 faceplate.
3G+ appears to be a popular retrofit in Germany & Russia but I found very little information on English forums. I'll do a full write-up once I'm finished.
