    Thread: WD6050 Aftermarket Nav Unit

    1. 04-13-2009 10:49 AM #1
      Hi Guys, I hate to do this without pics, but I just need to share this.

      I got an aftermarket Nav/DVD/Bluetooth/ system put in to the CC this weeken.
      This is a direct fit replacement for the stock radio and looks 99% like the stock system.

      Below is a link to the Golf forum I got all the information from.
      So far the system is owsome and has tons of features. I know there will be questions but I hope this link will provide all the information you need.

      Ive looked at this on GolfMKV a lot. I would consider it more if it was closer to the RNS510 in specs and still used the dash display. The lack of a hard drive doesnt help either. Looks great though installed. There are a few systems like this out now.

      Well, you got to consider the price... $540 shipped.

      The SD slot will take up to a 4 gb card and for me that is plenty right now. I still have volume and mute control on my steering wheel. Th sound quality is better... about the only thing I miss is Howard Stern on S Radio...

      Nice, yeah I know the price is good on it. The one feature I want is when you use the Skoda BT unit with the RNS-510 it'll display your text messages in the dash. The WD is something I still go back and look into, I wish they would change the iPod hookup from the front as well though.

      mdtony,

      For that price, I don't think you can be this unit!!! This is a great buy! Specially when you compare it to the $2000 nav option on the CC and how OEM this thing looks...

      Great buy man!

      I bought it from SZwaywell.com
      Email them for a price... (It keeps going up)
      Pay them through Pay pal and you will receive it within a week.
      They shipped to me using EMS and then USPS once it comes to the US.

      Veedubin... some guys on the GTI forum were able to rewire the Ipod ... I dont have one, but I plugged in my buddy's Iphone 3G and within 5 seconds I had full control and the thing was charging.

      Yeah I know it charges and all but the plug in the front is a no go, Ill have to check for the guys that rewired it to the rear. I just dont know if I want to lose MFD functionality.

      I plan to just not for a while. Are these plug and play? I assume they are.


    13. 04-13-2009 01:49 PM #13
      they are plug and play!

      my only real issue is sun glare during a sunny day.
      The screen is difficalt to see...
      I need to play with the settings but other owners complained aswell...

      If they'd provide some satellite capability I'd buy one. That's the only real negative for me, but it's a deal breaker.

      I guess you can use the aux outputs in the back of the unit and hook up an aftermarket Sat Radio Reciver in your glove box... Or if you have an iphone or an itouch you can download pandora... when i hookup up my firends Iphone, we trurned pandora on and the sound is CD qualuty...

      This is pretty nice. My satellite radio subscription has expired on my CC and I never used it much any way so that's not really a loss to me. Very tempting. My concern is with the screen visibility. I'd like to see some more feedback on clarity once you play around with the settings.

    17. 04-13-2009 06:11 PM #17
      I will provide feedback, but there is tons of info on the golf forum link that I provided above... For the money you cant beat this unit...

    18. 04-13-2009 07:02 PM #18
      tony Congrats on the buy

      seems like a great conscience buy . Pretty popular device here in the forum. My only concern with this is the quality being Chinese export. Your Input


    19. 04-14-2009 12:13 AM #19
      Heyya, I have one of those too, sitting and waiting to be shipped back for replacement (customer service is not one of the manufacturer's strong suits).
      My view is that it's a great idea and theory but poor execution. The navigation kept crashing, the right steering wheel controls never worked and the overall quality is poor and full of glitches. It doesn't turn on and off with the ignition because of another glitch. The Bluetooth mic is a very cheap part, it doesn't function well enough for people to hear you correctly. The customer service on the Chinese side is virtually non-existent. These problems are all documented in the thread on the Golf MKV forum.
      I would recommend taking this route if you are looking for something very cheap and are prepared to fight (a lot). to make it work. I am very disappointed I didn't go for RNS510. This is truly one of those cases where you get what you pay for.

    20. 04-14-2009 09:28 AM #20
      Hey Comcf, sorry to hear all the troubles you are having with yours.
      It might have to do with the ACC and Illum. cables. I had a stereo shop in Saugus install mine and I told them to leave them alone. The only thing you loose is a dimming function. I alse had them run the anthenna on the top of my dash, all you see is the small plastic peace, the cable is tucked away. This could be another issue. I honestly think that the DVD and SD fucntions as well as the unit looks are worth it. I almost never use nav, and as far as BT, you are right, you get what you pay for. Although some people say its fine, and for a quck call it works ok.
      I was aware of the right side steering wheel controls not functioning with this system. So far mine has been working perfectly and the nave points the way as well as tells me if I am speeding on the highway. What nav software are you running? I got the IGO. May be all this issues are caused by the wires you may have connected... Good luck man.

      As far as the quality, I belive the unit looks 99% OEM, the plastic looks nice and the touch screen works well.

      Btw I think you said earlier that you lose the MFD display, but can you still use the audio controls on the steering wheel for volume and changing tracks/stations?..thx. I have to spend sone time looking at
      the forum link you provided earlier.

      There are a few like that Zentec(I think is the name) makes one like it as well. Although I think the Zentec has the hard drive and such like the RNS

      All you need to remoove is the trim around the radio. Just be gentle...

      You loose the MFD and you retain, steering volume, mute and phone button. No switching tracks... but you get the remote control, touch sceen, a set of buttons, and the rotary know to switch tracks...

      Yes use a flat head screwdriver wrapped in a cloth and you should be just fine.
