My sticker says it's equipped with it. But there's nothing in the manuals and I can't figure out where it is or how to use it. What is it? A mini-GPS?

I dont own a G car but I know that audi cars have this feature “coming home” function uses the headlights, taillights and two additional lights in the outside mirrors to illuminate the surrounding area around the car. Hope that helps you

I thought the coming home function was the three programmable buttons underneath the driver's side sun visor which lets you do things like raise the garage door when you come home.

oh, i see. i thought i read a while back that it was some sort of GPS system that just simply read out directions to you to bring you home. i guess that was wrong. i don't believe the GPS option is available in the States yet, but i may add that when it is.

Yes, that way if you are running from the cops you can just call up the girlfriend on the cell and be like "It's okay! Just open the garage up when you see a glowing orb coming down the road... I'll turn off the lights, drive in, you shut the door and it's all good!".

Hi Henrus,

The coming home function is basically like the automated garage/gate openers you can buy.

In this case its integrated into the gallardo.

You can use three independant devices with this system i.e. garage, gates, garage at your other house.

The GPS sat nav system has just come out in the UK (been out in Europe for a few months now). I have it in my car.

Its a very good system (especially for an OEM system), with:

1) DVD based Navi
2) TV
3) MP3 via CD or 2 SD card slots
4) CD changer

You can as OrangeJuice suggests put a third party system in and it would probably be cheaper.

But I prefer the OEM system for the following reasons:

1) Integrates perfectly with the interior (I prefer the OEM look).

2) Integrates with the systems on the car.

For example Navi info:

- Road your on
- Direction of travel
- and if you have a destination programmed it also shows distance to next turn, distance/estimated time to destination, instructions to turn now ect

is shown in the OBC display between the speedo and rev meter.

I find this really usefull and safer because you dont have to look at the dash all the time or worry if you miss a voice announcement.

3) You dont have to worry as much about someone popping your window to steal it.

The cons are:

1) A third party system will be cheaper
2) Easier to wire, since you wont be integrating the car systems

If you want the OEM system you could probably order it from Europe (and get the CD from Audi, since its the same system as the one in the A8). But you'd have to get it fitted by Lamborghini as it would involve messing with more then just the Audio wiring.

If you decide to go after market

I dont have one but from what I have read online the Pioneer AVIC-N1 In-Dash DVD Multimedia AV Navigation Receiver "includes Navigation, DVD Video, Multimedia Audio/Video and even Vehicle Dynamics capabilities. The motorized, 6.5" touch screen display puts everything at your fingertips. Entertaining DVD movies, CDs, MP3s and XM Radio are just the beginning; also at your fingertips is a powerful navigation database with information on 12 million locations in the U.S. and Canada" and even "Is rear-view camera-ready, just add the optional ND-BC1 Backup Camera. When in reverse gear, the display will automatically switch to the rear-view camera in full-screen mode, to make backing up easier and safer. The rear-view can also be engaged while driving, to allow you to view a towed boat or vehicle during transport."

nuclearjack - All the aftermarket system does all the above you mentioned. Everyone will have their own preference on brands. Most important is to find a high skilled installer.

thanks everyone for the replies. the rearview camera option is interesting. though it would be more useful to have it in the 3/4 blindspot. i find that i have to do a very awkward contortio of my face to the roof and peek out to try to see what i am backing into (when parked in a diagonal spot).
