Hi,

Did I read somewhere that it is possible to copy the sat nav dvd to the hard drive ?? Anyone know if this is a manual operation or whether this is done automatically.... Mine seems to access the DVD all the time (on or off) and thought the hard drive copy would speed things up.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers,

Paul.

Newer RNS 510 unit is simply an install and then remove the DVD - automated process. Earlier MFD1/2 units need the disc to be installed at all times to activate the nav mapping.

Bit disappointed with the RNS 510 (ver. 3 disc) sat nav. Could'nt find the Clachaig Inn at glencoe, whereas my Garmin 760 with it's 7 digit postcode search had no bother. I had hoped the version 4 disc would have the 7 digit postcode search, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Roll on version 5.

Arrggghh, the 7 digit postcode problem again!! I really hope V5 is the answer whenever it comes. Can I make a suggestion?
When it comes out I would be able to buy it through 'the trade' at what I'm sure would be a decent discounted price. I would be willing to buy it and then post it to each of you who wanted it for say ?10 a go via paypal and then hold it 'in stock' incase anyone required it to reload. Any profit made I would hold in account to pay for the next version when it arrived. I'm willing to take the risk and I'm sure there is enough trust in the world.

Sounds like a good idea. VW were charging ?210 for version 4, which I think is a real rip off.

does anyone know what version should come with what age of car??? i have reccently bought a 57 reg late 2007 car with a version 1 dvd in the sat nav unit and no post code search. from all your experiences would a VW dealer update this and the firm ware free of charge or would it be a dig deep job?

Staffs,

Slightly off topic, but did you find the Clachaig in the end ? Worth going back for another search if you missed it. Had a few meals and bevvies there last year after climbing around Glencoe

Yep, rang the inn for directions. Great atmosphere and good food
. Even Sir Jimmy Saville goes there
