    By know it is pretty certain that there will be an upgraded RNS-E for model year 2010. Since many will be interested in retrofitting the new RNS-E to get AMI and traffic (US only, Europe always had TMC) I thought a new topic would be in order the focusses on the 2010 RNS-E retrofit in the A3 8P, TT 8J and R8.

    Comments and news not related to retrofitting the 2010 RNS-E and related accessories) should be posted in the existing topic at http://audiforum.us/rns-e/11210-ami-rns-e-new-tt-rs-price-list.html.

    The latest update to ETKA shows new part numbers for RNS-E for A3 cars models.
    Those parts are market to be use starting Model year 2010. Also shows the newest AMI components.

    Is it possible to know when this "update" (or new version) will be available?
    Is there a new code for dvd maps?

    This new parts will enter in production in week 22 (25-05-2009) :D
    In last ETKA update there isn't a new DVD part number, but IMHO I think there will be a new one 8)

    Man I am pumped about this. I really want to find out if I will be able to retrofit one of these new units, otherwise I just want to buy one of the current ones. I'm hating the waiting!

    As mentioned above, the new part number for 8Ps is as following:

    8P0 035 193 B

    Look forward to seeing these start to flow through!

    As I can see in Etka, for 2010 A3 there are more part numbers with different prices:

    8P0 035 193 B - 2588 EUR
    8P0 035 193 BX - 1396 EUR

    8P0 035 193 C - 2588 EUR
    8P0 035 193 CX - 1396 EUR

    8P0 035 193 T - 2588 EUR
    8P0 035 193 TX - 1396 EUR

    8P0 035 193 S - 2588 EUR
    8P0 035 193 SX - 1396 EUR

    The X suffix indicates an exchange part - hence the lower price.

    The US part numbers are also on ETKA now:

    8P0 035 193 A = US 2009
    8P0 035 193 D = US 2010

    It concerns me that the part number has changed from 192 to 193 ... to me this indicates that the hardware may have changed.

    I thought it was understood that there was going to be new hardware for 2010 A3 RNS-E, just based on the mention of a higher resolution screen.

    My concern is whether the new hardware is essential for some of the other features that we would like to have, like 32GB SD card capability or AMI?

    the 193 A for the A3 is not a 2010+ RNS-E, it's the old RNS-E that does not support the new software. So the 193 doesn't indicate the RNS-E being a 2010+ unit.

    I think there is a little bit o f confusion about this units...
    Is the 193 is not the new unit why the code is different? So.....what's the code of new unit?....and.....if the 193 is the old unit what kind of update or modify it contein?

    I think only Audi can tell you why they changed the number but fact it that 8P0 035 193 A is not a 2010 RNS-E and still runs the old software.
  13. peteinpieces New Member

    I believe you, but am curious how you know this?

    The 8P0 035 193 A was added last year, way before the 2010 RNS-E was released. That's how I know this.

    Just snipped this from audisport.net. It's the new RNSe in a TT
