NavPOInt is back with Custom Firmware Support!

NavPOInt now requires installation of our Custom RNS-E firmware, which adds support for Album Art, Audible POI Alerts, SD Card Maps (193 PU RNS-E only) and much more!

About

NavPOInt is a tool for adding custom Points of Interest (POI) to your Audi Satellite Navigation Plus (RNS-E)*. Without it, there is no way to add your own POIs - the official Audi DVD simply comes with a selection of pre-defined POI categories (petrol stations, hotels, etc.) as chosen by Audi. You can NOT change these ordinarily and they do NOT include, for instance, safety camera locations.

With NavPOInt add your own categories, each with a unique custom icon of your choosing, to the navigation systems map display. Using NavPOInt you can add safety camera locations, or any other more specialised POI you wish, to create your own uniquely personalised navigation DVD!

This highly useful feature, available as standard on most after market GPS systems, can now be added to your Audi system with our simple and easy to use PC software. Full integration with the RNS-E menus allows you to select which POI appear, just like you can for the existing built in categories such as Petrol Stations, Cinemas, Shopping Centres, etc.

Our custom firmware even adds the ability to select an optional audible alert to be played whenever you are within range of any chosen POI category.

All you need is a PC running Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10 (32 or 64 bit) and the ability to burn DVD+R DL (Dual Layer) disks, or a 193 PU RNS-E unit which supports 32GB SD Cards. Simply download a safety camera or other POI database from one of the many sites available (we recommend PocketGPSWorld.com or SCDB.info) and our unique software provides everything else you need to create your customised navigation DVD, or for 193 PU units a maps SD Card.

Start using NavPOInt today and enjoy a safer and more fun driving experience!

* RNS-E is the DVD based navigation system available as an option on Audi A3 (8P 2003 on), A4 (8E 2001-2008), A6 (4B 2001-2005), TT (8J 2006 on) and R8 models. You can tell if you have an RNS-E system because it says "Audi Satellite Navigation Plus" on the unit.

FULL UK Postcode Lookup

We have now updated navPOInt to include the ability to add full UK postcode lookup to your navigation disk. That's right, over 1.5 million UK postcodes directly mapped to their individual destination streets! No more annoying part postcode, part street name address lookups. Simply enter the full postcode and house number like most other sat nav users have done for years, and you're ready to go!

Once you have entered the full postcode, you can chose to either select the individual street automatically and then enter the house number, or navigate directly to the postcodes geographic co-ordinates as supplied by the Post Office and Ordnance Survey. For some addresses, where the original Audi DVD does not contain a matching street name for the given postcode, only the option to navigate to the geographic location will be available. However in a large number of cases we find the Ordnance Survey's geographic co-ordinates to be more accurate than the Audi house number database.

Pricing

To use NavPOInt you need to install our custom firmware and then purchase a Feature Pack licence for your RNS-E. This licence fully enables the AlbumArt, VIM Unlock, Audible POI Alert, and SD Card Maps (193 PU only) features of the new firmware. Also included is a complementary NavPOInt licence to enable authoring of your own navigation media including your custom POI and full 7-digit UK postcodes.

Feature Pack for 192 RNS-E ONLY: £10.00

Feature Pack for 193 PU RNS-E ONLY: £15.00
