Would anyone happen to know if such a thing exists? My dealer says not, and that you have to download it from Renault's website, but I'm damned if I'm going to print off 82 pages!

Unfortunately, it seems the only way. I printed the lot, cut it into Owners Handbook size and made it into a book to carry with me. I had daft conversation with Renault customer service guy who offered to send me aDVD with R-Link info. Anyone here has aDVD facility in their car? What a silly lot. And even if I wanted it, what would I do with it - watch it on a PC, run out to the car, try it, run in for another bit of info...and so on and so on.

Daft or what?!!

It is silly that a primted copy is not provided. If it is working, then most thimgs can be sorted out by using the on board menu...but there are moments when you could do with a manual.
Most common problems are losing the Tom Tom maps for a while...but a manual won't help!! You have to grin and bear it and switch down everything, wait a while, switch on and it sometimes comes back on its own....a mind of its own!!... new technology that at times is not quite right!!
Not really a fault...more of a system failure...
Saying that I'm six months in and I can't really fault it otherwise....it's a great system with a brilliant radio!!

Thanks both. Will take it over the road to the copy shop where they said they'd print it, cut it to size and staple it for a fiver!

If you can download a pdf and have a smartphone, you could read it on that whilst in the car.

PDF's and smartphones mean that I can carry round the instructions for my cameras, digital watches etc without actually being loaded down by heavy booklets

Way to go IvorETower... download it to your tablet...more convenient way of reading a manual ( you can make the print larger for those hard to read diagrams ) instantly jump to the part you require..perfect.. I have all my manuals on my tablet...save the forests by NOT printing it out.

I just spoke to a very helpful young lady at Renault CS. She was puzzled that I hadn't received the manual (which does exist!) with my new car. She's having one sent to my dealer - it's classed as a spare part! - and they will post it to me.

Arrived today. It's actually only a quick start guide, but it's better than nothing. Will use the online manual on my tablet.
