Hi there.

Anyone here who didn't get the satnav/AMI option have the Dension 500 gateway fitted yet?

If so, I'd love to hear about it.

Incredibly, went to the dealer today (my current A4 had some battery issues) and, having previously being told the car was slated for March build, instead they said is was being built this week and would be at the dealer's in 4 weeks. Happy Days!

Now I just need to get my ipod hooked up to the Dension and I'm good to go!

I have the Denison link, but i also have a sat nav without the Audi gateway connection. The link works well in this set up. the tracks display on both the sat nav screen and the smaller display and the tracks can be changed via the steering wheel controls.

Hey ICZ. I sent you a PM earlier about this. About whether you'd had the gateway fitted in Portadown yet? I guess the answer's no!

Why have you waited? I see the gateway 500 now has offical A5 support on the Audi site.

Sorry. I meant it was on the Dension site. click the 'compatabilty' link. the A5 used to read 'coming soon', but now there's a part number. sorry I can't link to it - I'm mobile today.

As I understand it (can others pls confirm), MMI is the multi media interface, i.e. the joypad, screen combo, standard on all A5s and analogous to the BMW iDrive.

The AMI is the Audi Music Interface, which is the optional ipod-friendly bit that you can only get with satnav.

The Dension product is designed for people who don't have the above.

Is that what you were thinking of Wayne?

I think I might be interested in getting this fitted. The unit itself costs just around £280 but does anyone know how much a professional installer would charge to fit and do you think it would affect the Audi warranty?

The Gateway 500 is Audi Approved and they will fit it for £370.68 - at least that is what my dealer quoted me yesterday. Worth doing it through your dealer to maintain the Audi warranty in case of 'issues'.

I didn't get the CD changer for my car, so I only have the single slot cd player. If I get this unit, will I still be able to play a CD?

Pretty sure you cant use the 500 model if you dont have the cd changer or satnav. Im in the same position. Not sure what i am going to do yet, i will prolly be ok with SD cards though as i dont need much music.
