Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What sat nav systems will NavPOInt work with?
A: The Audi RNS-E which is an option on A3, A4, A6, TT and R8 model lines. Look for the "Audi Navigation Plus" wording on the unit

Q: Will it work on the MMI system in my A5?
A: No, sorry. Although the RNS-E is also branded as "MMI" by Audi, the MMI system used on the A5 is completely different

Q: Will it work on any other sat nav systems?
A: Probably not, unless based on the Aisin V220 or V574 platform. Contact us beforehand if you are uncertain if your platform is supported.

Q: Will it work on the RNS-E in my Lamborghini?
A: Probably - Bring it round, take me for a spin and we'll see ;)

Q: How does it work?
A: The software works by adding new data to the database already on your map disk and writing a new DVD. It does NOT modify the firmware (software) in your navigation unit in any way.

Q: Will the unit give audible alerts as I approach a camera?
A: Sorry, no. The RNS-E software does not support audible alerts, and so our software can not add them.

Q: What hardware do I need?
A:

navPOInt supports burning DVDs directly. A DVD burner capable of buring DVD+R DL (Dual Layer) disks and which supports "booktype setting" is required. navPOInt includes built in booktype setting for many popular drives, including BenQ, LG, LITE-ON, NEC, Nu Tech, Plextor, RICOH and Samsung.

Q: Will the software run on a Mac?
We do not have any plans for a Mac version. However navPOInt will run from a Mac booted to a native Windows install under Boot Camp, and most likely run in a VM environment under Parallels as well. Unfortunately we do not own a Mac, so we can not officially support this platform. However we encourage Mac users to report their experiences via the navPOInt forums.

Q: Which map disks are supported?
A: We have tested with the European map disks for 2009 and 2010. Older European disks should work also. If you live outside the EU we would like to support your region - please contact us.
