Welcome. Here you will find a collection of firmware enhancements and bug fixes for your Audi RNS-E and Seat Media System E.

Custom Splash Screens

With the purchase of a Feature Pack our custom firmwares can display a user defined splash screen on startup of the RNS-E.

You can use this feature without purchasing a Feature Pack, but a nag link to our website will be added to any images you upload. Once you purchase and install the Feature Pack the nag link will be removed on all future image uploads.

Setting a Custom Splash Screen

To upload a custom splash screen place a file named splash.bmp in the root directory of the SD Card in drive 1 (left hand slot). Make sure the image file is of the correct size and format as detailed below.

Select the Update Splash option from the Engineering Menu General screen. Your RNS-E will reboot and the new splash screen should be displayed in place of the default.

Removing a Custom Splash Screen

Remove the SD Card from drive 1 (left hand slot) and/or remove the splash.bmp file from the root directory.

Select the Update Splash option from the Engineering Menu General screen. Your RNS-E will erase the currently programmed start screen and reboot. The default splash screen will have been restored.

Supported Splash Screen Format

The splash.bmp file must be a 32bpp uncompressed bitmap file. The image size must be exactly 400x240 for the 192 RNS-E, or 800x480 for the 193 RNS-E.

If you attempt to upload a new splash screen, but no image is displayed on reboot, then either the splash.bmp file is not present, or it is not to correct size or format.
