Updating RNS-E with 2008 maps to 2011

6 posts in this topic

Can someone please confirm that it is ok for me to update my RNS-E with a 2011 disc map when I'm currently using the 2008 sat nav disc?

I'm assuming there are no issues with 2011 maps onto 2008.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't tried this but AFAIK the last firmware update was circa 2007 which enabled TMC in the UK after that is just the maps that changed & no additional/varied functions on the RNS-E

Thanks - so it should be ok then?

Sorry, if you haven't already tried I would say almost certainly yes. I updated mine from 2006 to 2008 and it loaded the TMC firmware but as this was the last firware change then it should just take the map DVD just as mine will happily swap from 2006 to 2008 maps and when I see a cheap 2010/11 DVD I will be updating my maps.

If you want to be really thorough have a quick look or ask at RNS-E | Audi Forum

It's definitely OK - just insert the 2011 map disc and it will use the new maps.

There's no new software though - Audi stopped issuing software updates for the pre-2010 RNS-E at SW version 0650, and they won't issue any more updates as it's an obsolete product.
