At the moment you have MMI Low (Mono Screen) but you also have the CD based Navigation i suspect?.

For you to have the larger screen (MMI High) you will also need the DVD based navigation system. Its not justa matter of changing the screen in cluster bezel.

It's around £2k normally

I have a full system here for £1399 fitted, MMI basic to MMI high with DVD navigation.

Is your car a Saloon or Avant?

So you have a saloon, first you need to check if you have a sound system. Check your sound settings to see if you have a SUB option, usually that means you have an amp in the boot and an upgrade to high is straight forward.

Basic comes in 3 forms

Basic (no sound system)

Basic + ( 10 speaker sound system)

Basic + Navigation (CD based Nav / 6 CD changer / 10 speaker sound system)

See the link in my signature for my site, I can do the ugrade for you and quote depending on the options you require.

Craigy, intrested in your cost there for the upgrade, would the same apply to my 2005 A6 Q with MMI Basic?

Again I would need the spec of your cars MMI and what options you are trying to get to.

Do you have a sound system? without a sound system it's too expensive for the rewiring.

It's a 6.5" wide screen DVD navigation, it does support 3D mapping and also covers the whole of the EU on one disk.

If that's the new DVD sat nav , it is awesome..

i drove the new A4 allroad with it in, and it gives you the details of the next 3 junctions.

No Dave, that would be the 3G nav system, not the 2G system which is being discussed here.

yeah, looks much better, mono is reall crap, actually i'm suprised they fitted mono screen in a6 s line, same story with some version of a4 s line, many of them have fitted cassete player as a main sound device (even cars made in 2006!)

yr last pic (control panel), i believe there would be no changes on it...?

speak soon

Hi Craigyb

Are you still doing these upgrades? 

I have a C6 with Basic + Navigation (CD based Nav / 6 CD changer / 10 speaker sound system)

How much to upgrade to colour DVD?

Thanks

You may be in for a long wait.

Craigyb hasn't logged on in over 5 months and last posted over 3 years ago from what I can see.

I don't know if he still does this type of thing but someone else might.

Last time I spoke to him was about a year / 18 months ago, I'm pretty sure he had stopped doing retro fits.  +++

I used these guys to get Bluetooth fitted to an A3 some years back...

They still seem to be operating, though the price of satnav retrofits looks somewhat pricey!!
