Default India's Audi A6 Premium GPS NAVIGATION

Dear Guys,

I bought new Audi A6 premium package 2013, that doesn't come with Navigation. There is Navi button and when I press it odometer display says "This button is not under use". This car includes 2 SD slots, 1 CD slot and 6 CD changer in side bucket. Is it possible I could install NAVI package? I am desperate to use navigation.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Anything is possible if money is no object. New or added modules and recoding would be necessary which won't be inexpensive; I'm also not sure if the MMI screen would also need to be replaced (a bigger boatload of money). You might be better off (and save a boatload of money) using a portable Garmin nav when needed.

+2. The amount of energy and money involved in transforming this would not make sense when you can buy a unit for $200

Does Audi have a Nav database for India?

I just answered my own question by going to the configurator for India. It appears that you could have bought the same car with Navigation.

Audi has Indian maps too. How could I know that my current audi display could work with Navi? If not from where I could buy Audi OEM display with 3G high MMI? I am ready to spend money.

Thanks

Start with your Audi dealer and see what they say.

I discussed with 3 Audi dealers in New Delhi (India), they refused to do so. Because India's Audi A6 comes in three variants:

1. A6 Premium 3.0 TDI (MINE) - WITHOUT NAVIGATION - $100,550
2. A6 Premium Plus 3.0 TDI - WITHOUT NAVIGATION - $113,560
3. A6 Technology 3.0 TDI - WITH NAVIGATION - $121,0755

I think they are not installing NAVI in other models as an addon because they are forcing people to buy technology pack. Though, navigation technology so far is not so expensive as AUDI pack is concerned. Is there any other place where I could get OEM NAVI?

Thanks for support..

If audi refuses to do so your only option is an aftermarket installer once all the parts are identified. Someone here may know what those are but I highly doubt an Audi buyer would go the route of trying to install a factory setup aftermarket. Too expensive and the possibility of problems once someone tries to pull all that parts out to install the right items like a gps antenna etc is pretty high. There are so many better options.

Thanks @Atlanta.. I seriously hate Indian car market. Spending $100,000 on car that is also not fully equipped where I can get Audi A8 in US for this price. Anyway car is superb performance wise. I will talk to concerned person in workshop may be they could help. If not, Garmin would be the best option available.

Hi @ slaich2000,

When you say $100,000 is that US DOLLARS? That's an extreme for the cost in India. Aren't you better off buying the car in Germany and having it shipped to India? - Mind you, you may have to pay a heavy import tax.

I think some German retailers will build a UK spec car (RHD). I think if you get the 3G module in the car, it will download Google Maps for the area you're driving in (again not sure about this, you'll have to research).

How do UK prices compare? It seems like Germany pays the same numbers in Euro as US does in dollars! E.g. the S7 I saw sitting in the Munich Audi Forum was priced at $80-something thousand Euro and the one at my dealer in the US was priced at $80-something thousand dollars....

So an A6 at around $60k would be EUR 60K or about $80k, add in 20% tax and OP's prices don't seem that much worse?

Uk Prices are more expensive when you convert to EUROS, but you can negotiate with dealers and get a good discount. There is a site here in the UK that allows you to enter the exact spec of your Audi, it then contacts your local dealers on your behalf and the dealers then give you a final price with a discount. Check this : http://www.carwow.co.uk/

I managed to get an offer of a 3,500 discount off an Audi Q5 Tdi S-Line plus. And that was without me doing any work in speaking to dealers.

You can check the UK AUDI site : http://www.audi.co.uk is that allows you to configure your Audi with a final price.

Numerous countries post OTD prices on the window which seem inflated but that is the "Out The Door" price. The prices in US seem low until you get hit with the famous tax, license, dealer prep, dealer added options and dealer markup.
It therefore makes it difficult to compare apples to apples without knowing the pitches in different countries.

Doesn't the US online configurator give you a final price including all those taxes and prep etc? Here in the UK , it's pretty much spelled out for you what extra you're paying on top of the price of the car.

So in the UK we have a Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) and then the
Recommended On The Road Price (ROTR) which includes charges such as delivery charge, half tank of fuel and number plates , first registration fee, Road Fund License.

Hi @ Sbarlas

The cost of especially luxury cars in India is tremendously expensive. If I buy car from Germany say the import duty is too high that would cost more than $100,000. Indian government is very alert in these cases. Also, car would not be under international warranty. I hope MMI is equipped with 3G low.. How do I check it? May be navigation could be installed with low 3G access too..

Secondly, you all would be surprised to know that this model doesn't come with mmi remote for rear seat.. Horrible 😲😧.. If I purchase mmi remote will that work with my current car's mmi?

Thanks guys for kind support 😊👍..
