I just bought the new 2005 A6 3.2. because of limited stock I have to buy one without the GPS navigation installed. I then discovered that in my MMI panel I do have "nav" button and also in the trunk I have some extra wires availaible with empty slot for the DVD drive. Does anybody know what DVD NAV system/computer need to be installed in trunk and how to hook it up with the availaible extra wires provided. Please be descriptive coz I dont know much about these stuff.
After getting very mixed signals from a number of Audi dealers (most told me it wasn't possible or that it required a "$1000 wiring harness as well as $2000 in parts and labor", I bought a kit from Miramar VW/Audi (firstname.lastname@example.org). The kit cost $1200 for the DVD player (which goes in the trunk), connection harness/splice (fiber optic), electrical harness (with fuse) and GPS antenna (the kit uses a separate antenna rather than the existing shark fin, but it goes in a factory-specific location). The instructions were clear, the installation went without a hitch and it's worked for a year without any problems. I will note that I also had to upgrade my MMI software to the most recent level in order to make it all work properly. The dealer charged $100 for that.
I know this is an old post, so for others who are this i shall comment. You could use the shark fin if you wanted, I found a connector harness under the A pillar trim on the driver's side. I am new to this forum so not sure how to post pictures. There should be a blue connector that you just connect your antenna cable to. also have directions for anyone who is interested.
Hi I know this is a Old thread, but can you please forward the directions for me please. I have a 2005 Audi A6 Quattro, and I have the shark Antenna, I want to purchase a used units on ebay, but before I do I need to know how to install and what harness I will need...
