I notice other similar posts on this theme but my RNS 510 (in my 2010 Tiguan) has gone haywire. Too much to post here but mainly I get the 'Welcome to Volkswagen' screen then it goes black and I get no response. What response I can get is intermittent and in German - not much use to me as I'm in Melbourne Australia. I have tried resetting it (pressing both left hand buttons plus Star on the CD player and it tells me (in German) 'System is starting' but nothing happens.
I doubt much can be done (is there anything?) so I'm on the lookout for a replacement. Like a recent post from Ian Stewart I would like something other than the 510. What genuine VW units are there that will fit? Other than that, has anyone fitted another brand that has all the functionality of the 510 plus maps and auxiliary connections for music other than CD, SD and Bluetooth or am I asking for too much. Cheers, Ray

Hi Ray across Bass Strait. I got an S100 (not sure of make) to replace the 510 that was brilliant with good satnav (better than the current VW satnav), good radio and rear camera - cost me around $1700 installed.

Try visiting your local reliable car electronics store and see what they have to offer.

I still have the 510 if you want it - you just need to pay the postage.

Pls PM me if you want further info.

Click your avatar top right and you will see conversations, Go there, new message, and add the member you want to send it to and it should pop up as you type it in. Then send it away.

Iggy, do you have access to Ray's and my PMs and if you do could you kindly have a look at the two photos as to whether the two units are compatible and have the same functions? Many thanks.

Yes plug and play. If he's going to the nav unit he will need a cheap magnetic GPS antenna mines stuck under the dash to the side of the radio hole and works fine. Ones the very base model and one's the RNS 510. If he's going backwards to the RDC310 then just don't hook the blue Fakra Connector.. he will need to visit a dealer to unlock unless the radio is sold with the code. They will not give them over the phone anymore and do not trust eBay sellers selling codes.
