A8 2007 Sat Nav Post Code Search?

7 posts in this topic

Hi, does a 2007 A8 have a full post code search or just the hideous missing last two digits version?

 

Thanks

I think it depends upon the year of the nav disc in the car.

 

Once you stick in a newer one, it'll update the software and allow more features.

If that's right I wished it were the case for my Allroad. The nav in that is pretty much useless with just the first four digit search only. There are so many places up here that don't have road names or distinct town areas you may as well not have it. I end up using my phone, which given the reception here is also pretty useless. Nice one Audi.

 

Cheers as always

I have a 2012 DVD based RNS-E and AUDI never supported 7 digit post codes.

I had to purchase a modified Sat nav Dvd and separate update which allows full post codes in conjunction with a street name.

I think that must be the newer sat nav than the ones in the models around 2006 to 20111.

 

Where did you get the disc?

They will supply SW220 for free on request with a purchase. Just put a note in the comments as it came on another disc.

 

Post code works like this, although this is not necessarily their disc, just another 7 digit postcode video.

Thanks for the links, but sadly, they all seem to relate to the older RNS-E systems and not 2G High when it comes to seven digit searches. Although a couple of places seem to say they have seven digit searches on 2G High, when I e-mailed them, they replied back that it was an error in the listings/websites and it was not the case. Which probably means they put it down in the hope people will just buy anyway and worry about them complaining later. I think the latest SW is actually 5570
