Remove these two philips head screws. FYI They are on tight, so make sure you have the
correct size Phillips head; you don’t want to
strip that screw head. ☺
Symphony I
Cluster will come out like this.
Use a flathead screwdriver to
rotate-up the purple tab on the
blue connector first. Do same
for grey and green connectors,
in that order. Install in reverse
order.
To avoid scratching
your steering column
make sure to cover it
with blue painters’ tape.

GPS wire: leave yourself 3 feet of slack
from here to behind your HU area.
Using 2” Velcro strips, I attached my GPS antenna up inside the dash area (above the inst. Cluster). You can’t see it
from this location, but when you have the cluster out, you will notice a little “cubby hole” area where you can insert
the GPS. I put the Velcro strips down first, then wrapped my GPS in Velcro; it’s in there pretty tight. As for
reception, I average 5 or 6 GPS satellites received most of the time (a minimum of 3 is needed).
As for the remaining wire, you can also wrap it in Velcro and stuff in that same cubby area. I decided to run the GPS
wire (see “G”) in between these metal support pieces (not required for everyone else).

Heavy duty “zip ties”
are used to hold it in

FYI - Steering
wheel column
In relation to your Nav+ head unit and your instrument
cluster, this is probably the best place to locate your
TMC/CAN gateway unit for a A6/S6/RS6/allroad.
TMC/CAN
Gateway
My unit came with the OEM mounting bracket, but I found it
very difficult to fit into this area without doing a lot of
permanent damage to the dash area. I spent over an hour
trying to make it fit with no success. Instead, I decided to
remove the mounting bracket (see diagram 1h) with a Torx
T7 or T8 wrench.
Velcro strips to reduce potential
noises
My solution was to attach it to one of the existing metal
braces inside the dashboard using large velcro strips (to
reduce an future metal-on-metal vibrations) and large plastic
electrical zip ties. It is pretty snug…and not going anywhere.
Please note: Make sure you are able to access your 12 pin
connector so you can easily plug it in later in the installation.

Please note: The “T-style” wire taps are preferred by most stereo installation shops because you can easily remove
the male blade connector from the tap. Whether you use the T-style or quick slide kind, you should use an Exactoknife or some kind of razor blade to strip away some of the wire insulation. You want to make sure you have good

Nav Plus Installation – Phase 2
(The Female 20 pin connector for Symphony I and II)
20 pin (Connector I) split into three distinct sections:
- Blue: 8 pins for OEM CD Changer, PhatBox or Blitzsafe
interface etc.
- Green: 6 pins for various functions (CAN H, CAN L etc)
- Yellow: 6 pins for line-level output to Bose or
aftermarket amplifier
20 pin (Connector I) typically found as one unit:
I relocated the pins to the blue/green/yellow version
and taped back the pins that weren’t applicable for
the Nav+ conversion. This way, I don’t cut any wires
and can reinstall my Symphony unit if need be.
There are clips on the
other side of these
holes that allow you
to slide these
connectors off from
each other.
You’ll need to remove this yellow “locking bar” in connectors II, III
and IV (use an exacto-knife or razor blade) before removing any
female pin. In connector I, you only need to slide a purple “locking
bar” out a bit. FYI – you’ll still need a special tool to do this (see
diagram 2i).
Please note: Stahwille tool# 1556 (female pins of
20 pin) and 1591 cover the smaller and larger
terminals. They cost $90 (purchased from
www.asttool.com ) each but can be borrowed
from me to switch your pins over.

7” of width is just enough, but 8” of

it was a tricky installation.
Please note: The space behind the glove box is extremely tight. There is very little room to locate electronics. The
Blaupunkt ME3 is a large DIN sized unit that barely fit because of it’s required mounting depth. When you are

I ran two 3AMP fuses just above my fuse
box to support the Nexxtel device and the
Blaupunkt ME3 unit. This way, I won’t have
to pull open the dashboard to replace a
fuse.
This is the fused wiring
harness for my Motorola v60
Hands-free car kit. In this
space, it is very accessible to
replace fuses.

Nav Plus – Phase 3
(Installation of Blaupunkt ME3 in glovebox)
One of the support brackets for
the ME3 was attached to the
roof of the glove box.
I relocated the glove
box light here by
cutting out a new hole
using my Dremel tool.
Be careful that any wires don’t
dangle or come close to this light.
It gets very hot and can melt a wire
casing.

(Installation of Nexxtel Interface and Blaupunkt ME3 CD/DVD/MP3/TV Tuner)
Wiring harness for ME3 plugs
in here (power, A/V etc.).
Antenna for TV tuner plugs in
here (F-style coax connector).
If you wanted to use the ME3 in
your house, you would need to
purchase an additional AC/DC
adaptor
A “I” bracket from a
hardware store was used to
brace this side of the ME3
to the glove box.
In order to fit the ME3 into my glove box, I
need to cut this section. By doing this, my
glove box light does not work. Oh well.

All of the power and ground wires for the Nexxtel and Blaupunkt ME3 wrapped in black
OEM-like fabric tape and zip ties. You should adjust your steering wheel up and down to
see if your wiring interferes with its operation.

(Installation of Nexxtel Interface and Blaupunkt ME3 CD/DVD/MP3/TV Tuner)
The ME3 stays relatively warm.
The heat vents are exposed
inside and behind the glove box.
With the ME3 reinstalled, I left my speed sensor switch and a set of
auxiliary inputs accessible.

Nav Plus – Phase 3
(Location of IR sensor for Blaupunkt ME3 CD/DVD/MP3/TV Tuner)
Running the wire for the IR sensor was extremely easy. There is an open space where the dashboard meets the
bottom of the windshield. I used a 2” plastic putty knife to feed the wire along the edge of the windshield and at the
base of the A pillar.

Nav Plus – Phase 3
(Aftermarket Amplified TV Tuner antenna)
Please note: The Blaupunkt ME3 comes with a non-amplified TV antenna. The reception is horrible…so I decided to
invest in an amplified antenna. I will hide it in the headliner near the windshield and run the wire down the A pillar.
This antenna has a F-connector which works with my ME3.

Nav Plus Installation – OEM Glovebox CD Changer
For the B6 A4/S4 and C6 A6, Audi offers a glove box CD
Changer. Unfortunately, there is a specific version/revision letter
that works with the Navigation Plus. The US Audi parts dealers
cannot source this part. You can contact www.vagparts.com as
they can order it for you.
For the OEM glove box changer you must get part#
8E0 035 111 B, or C. It must have a version letter at the end of
the part number. It also requires harness, part#8E0 051 592.
Please note: If you would like to mount this OEM CD Changer in your glove box, please follow some of the steps
that I took to install the Blaupunkt ME3. You can always consult a car stereo installation shop as another option.
