When the dealer did your upgrade they should have left the 2007 DVD (8P0 919 884 M or 8P0 060 884 M) in your RNS-E. Go back and ask them for it!

Just bought an Allroad, and immediately came here to investigate the sat-nav. I _have_ gone through all 58 pages, to arm myself before phoning the dealers.

AS expected, very different 'policies' - though both Edinburgh and Perth Audi said the upgrade campaign for the A6 expired in December. One quoted £319 - and the part to be ordered was 4E0060884AL - I think - costing £266 and then there was labour... The other checked with a technical advisor, concluded that 8PO 060 884 M would do it, and that there was no need for any labour at all - that the disc would do the job - but the charge would be £178 + VAT.

Anyone had better luck in Glasgow, or Stirling, or Aberdeen (I'm getting desperate...)

What year Allroad?

If it's current generation then I think there will probably be some sort of charge as the MMI upgrade offer has expired.

If it's the previous generation then there should be no charge as its covered by the current RNS-E offer. Most dealers seem to get confused when you say 'Allroad' and insist it's chargeable, took me 3 attempts but had it done FOC in the end.

If it is the current A6/allroad model PM myself or Craigyb, as we have the software to update the MMI systems, and enable TMC.

If it's the older model A6/Allroad with RNS-E, then push your dealer to do this upgrade FOC.

169144-ok.gif and thanks for offer - but it's Nov04 2.5 Tdi LE Au.

Dealers won't budge without The Letter.

But thanks for the encouragement.

I was asked for the letter over the phone when i had the A4 cab done, when i booked in and went to the dealer, no mention of the letter.

Try Aberdeen Audi, very helpful 169144-ok.gif

IIRC the instructions are to do the upgrade using the 2007 DVD 1 (Western Europe) and leave that DVD in the RNS-E. Since TMC doesn't work in the UK without the 2007 DVD inserted into the RNS-E, that makes sense to me.

Have you ever seen any TMC messages in your area yet?

As soon as i get to Montrose/Arbroath on the way south the messages start, all i get in Aberdeen are messages from overseas. I missed a 6 mile tailback at stonehaven last week thanks to TMC. In general though its poorly covered up here, fortunately we have so little traffic and such good roads grin.gif

The Q7 picks up the TMC messages regularly but the A4 had to be in Glasgow area before it got any.

Made it! - A message to Audi Customer Services produced an authoritative email from Paul Chadwick, who confirmed that the RNS-E upgrade was available from any local dealer for the A6/ Allroad until 30th of June. Perth Audi took a little convincing, but could not have been more helpful or pleasant. They ordered the discs Monday, and phoned today to say they were in. Did not require 2004 disc. Not expecting to install it themselves.

An excellent result - thanks to this forum.

Anyone still wanting the upgrade - there may still be time, but not much.

Cheers.

There's one disc for Western Europe and one for Eastern Europe. Germany (E&W) is on both, but I haven't been to try it out!

Punctuation would be a good start ;-)

Suggest you start a new thread - this one is for something rather different.

So that means there's still lots of RNS-E fitted Audis out there that haven't had the FREE upgrade done.

Hi all, just joined the forum. I was wondering - exactly how boned are those guys (like me) with broken TMC on the CD-based nav system? (i.e. not DVD)
