Open the passenger side fuse panel cover and remove a screw. Using 8 mm hex driver, remove all screws (For A4, the total of 7 screws inside the glove box). There is a screw behind the AMI interface. Remove two screws on the bottom side. As you remove the screw, the glove box will be dangling. Support properly. Pull the compartment down gently. Be careful for upper front side latches. Shake the compartment gently and the latches will be released. Run the supplied cables properly through the gaps. Disconnect the original CAN BUS wire (red connector) from the interface inside the right corner of the glove box (Must turn off the car before disconnect). Connect the original CAN BUS wire to the CAN BUS receptacle on the supplied cable, and connect the Bypass from the cable into the CAN BUS interface. (Do not start the car until you finish the connection. Connect all connectors with GPS and the Radio, and then reassemble.

GPS and Data Antenna fit well in the dash center speaker area. Pry the cover off (be careful). The GPS antenna fits on the right, and the Data antenna fits on the left. The GPS antenna wire can be routed under the speaker to the leftside. Both connectors can be fed through a gap in the middle by carefully prying the gap open a bit. Dont worry, it stretches and goes back.
