    I have a 2006 Jetta 2.0T with the multi CD adn Sirus sat radio. This is going to be a commuting car and I want to install basic GPS, pref OEM. I see you have a used MFD2 (1K0-035-197D) for $549 – Is this a plug and play for the MK5? Also, will I be able to retain the Sirus sat radio and connnect it to the MFD2 (1K0-035-197D) unit as a plug & play installation?

    Thanks… Theo Miles

    I am in a similar predicament. 2009 MKV Jetta w/factory Sirius radio. Do you have routing instructions for connecting to the roof mounted antenna? Assumption would be that you would intercept at the now-unused Sirius receiver in the trunk. Thanks! Richard

    @Richard,
    I can try to walk you through it.
    If you’re trying to run the satellite extension cable, you will need to disconnect the line coming into the satellite module receiver, connect the extension cable male end into the disconnected line above and run the rest of the extension cable to the front of the car under the carpet and connect in behind the headunit into the green connection with the female right angle plug. If you need further clarification, please let me know.
    Thanks,

    Hi Scott, I got my 2006 GLI back from the dealer with everything working on the new RNS-510 except for the SAT radio, its looking for the antenna. After looking it over I noticed that the Brown & Green connectors on the SAT RECVR in the trunk were still connected . I assume those wires connect the antenna through the SAT RECVR and up to the head unit. Question: Can’t the wire (I think its the green connector) that runs to the head unit just be plugged into the brown connector (that goes to the antena) with an adaptor (female to female)? That would bypass the SAT RECVR in the trunk and give a direct connection to the head unit correct? Surely they make such a connector??? That would save me from having to run an extension cable to the head unit from the trunk. Your expert input would be appreciated. Thanks! (P.S. I also want to purchase a BlueTooth Mod from you but one i’ll tackle one thing at a time)

    Unfortunately, that will not work. You have to either go with the extension cable or run a new satellite radio antenna under the dash. These are your only two options I’m afraid.

    Just out of curiosity, can you give me some details why connecting the 2 cables won’t work?
    Is there something inline from the cable that goes from the SAT RECVR to the head unit? (I just like to know how things work when possible). Can I order the extension cable from you and do you have them in stock? Many Thanks Flytdiguy!!!

    Hey Bob,
    We have the satellite cables available in limited stock. Send us a message and we’ll get one out to you.
    Not sure why connecting the two cables won’t work.

    I installed RNS510 to replace RCD510 for may PASSAT CC 2.0 (2010 model). Now, the CD/DVD drive is not function and the icon is dimming on the panel. I bought the RNS510 from eBay. Any suggestion to fix the CD/DVD issue? Or open the RNS510 to check it? Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi,
    I recently installed/upgades from the RCD310 to the RNS510 & Premium Bluetooth. I went to my VW dealer and had the uni coded to my car 2011 VW Scirocco, but I can’t find a proper manual (digital pdf.) for this unit anywhere? Any ideas on where I could get one?

    Thanks,
    Stephen.

    Manuals should be available from your dealer or ebay.

    Hi, I would like to get a OEM RNS-510 for my 2011 GTI, but I’ve been always confused about how to install it and what is the coding thing about? If anyone could answer my question, i’d be more than appreciated!!

    Hi,
    Coding is basically changing the programming that the RNS-510 looks for when communicating along the can-bus network within your vehicles computer system. It’s what tells your vehicle to “look” for this type of device. It’s not like a computer that can automatically recognize the components. It needs to be told such.
    There’s a device called a vag-com made by Ross Tech that allows you to modify this programming. If you don’t have one or are not comfortable, I recommend you find a shop that is familiar or go to the dealer. Good luck with the latter, though. You may want to call ahead to make sure they have people capable and willing to work on a retrofit install. Many dealers won’t.

    I have a 2012 Gold Basis with convience and want to install the RNS 310.
    My question is about the bluetooth. Which one do I have to disable to keep the OEM Microphone and other features working?
