      Hello Peter, Steve, Mike:

      I bought a 2015 Golf about a year ago - sold my Phaeton to a person from the central USA who seemed quite enthusiastic about the car and was very happy to get it. I have...
    2. It's now officially a collector's item: VW stops Phaeton production

      See this article in today's Deutsche Welle news feed:

      VW stops producing its flagship Phaeton

      It was fun while it lasted.

      Z27:

      Although I can't say "for sure", I strongly suspect that it is not possible to change the speed (the frequency) of the turn signal flashes. This is because I recall - from past research -...
    4. The Pich - Winterkorn Soap Opera continues...

      There is a fascinating article in today's National Post newspaper discussing what direction the Pich - Winterkorn scuffle will head in in the days leading up to VW's annual shareholder meeting on...

      Hi Don:

      Actually, I am no longer a moderator as of about an hour ago. I did moderate the Phaeton forum here on Vortex for 11 years, but that ended today.

      Thank you for posting that info about...

      Exactly. Our colleagues in Australia appear to have figured out a solution that enables FM reception of RDS / TMC data with a coding change, but their radio installations are different than ours. ...

      For sure, TMC is broadcast on FM subcarriers in Canada. I've been getting TMC information that way on various Garmin GPSRs here in Canada for at least the past 7 years. Coverage via FM is limited...
    8. Below is a picture showing the only control I can...

      Below is a picture showing the only control I can find in my NAR Golf that relates to RDS / TMC. To the best of my knowledge, the only thing this controls is the scrolling text that FM radio...

      Ah, great, that let me solve the problem.

      It seems that each headrest has TWO release buttons. Normally, it's only necessary to push the left hand button (left hand if you are facing in the same...

      Don:

      You posted a photo (reproduced below) in another forum - this photo shows the Traffic Program (TP) enabled.

      I cannot find any controls for switching either TP or RDS on or off on my NAR...
    11. How to remove rear seat headrests from a Golf 7?

      Hello All:

      Does anyone know how to remove (fully remove) the rear seat headrests from a Golf 7? I never have passengers in the rear seat, and I find that the headrests obstruct my vision (via the...

      TMC via RDS is present in North America, but the data is almost always encrypted, and the encryption looks for a specific receiver serial number (e.g. from Garmin, or Tom-Tom, or similar), rather...

      Hi Don:

      No offense taken at all! For sure, feel free to challenge me on any academic point, because developing an accurate knowledge base is the whole purpose of our forum. :)

      Apropos of what...

      Those spurious alerts about 'someone going the wrong way on the freeway' are not a fault of the car, or of the traffic data transmission system, they are the fault of a person in a traffic control...
    15. I doubt that very much. The requirement to have...

      I doubt that very much. The requirement to have the brake pedal pressed in order for the starter to function (keyed ignition or keyless, doesn't matter) became standard on all North American cars...
    16. Be aware that "Driving School Mode" will only...

      Be aware that "Driving School Mode" will only appear (be visible) on the big central display when the engine is running. You can't bring that screen up when the ignition is on, but the car is not...

      On other VW products, valet parking control normally disables access to the trunk area of the car, it has nothing to do with operating mode of the car (it's not a Corvette :) ). I don't know how this...

      Hi Dave:

      I don't yet have a set of wiring diagrams for the Golf 7, so unfortunately I can't help you out by pointing you to the correct terminal to use.

      Be aware, though, that there are...

      Here's a link to a post I made describing the process in the Phaeton forum. Perhaps the same concepts might work with the Golf 7.

      Hi TJ:

      I'm a little bit surprised that the dealership is advertising the car at that price. Unlike the USA market, VW Canada will come down on the dealers like a ton of bricks if a dealership...
