    Thread: RNS315 - latest firmware?

    1. 09-22-2011 12:40 AM #1
      Can anyone comment on what the latest version of the firmware for the RNS315 is? I'd like to know if there's a newer one than my head unit currently has as mine will fairly frequently NOT read the song info from songs on my iPad Touch... Usually skipping to the next song fixes this but it's a bit annoying... Curious if there's a firmware update which fixes this.

      Best resource for Nav issues is www.vwnavi.com. They have all the latest information. However, remember it is an international forum, and some discussions (such as firmware versions) may not be accurate for your system. They are usually prety good about specifying what part of the world they are discussing in the threads.

      Vwnavi.com doesn't seem to have an rns 315 section but did find an update via another forum;

      http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f...-support-6671/

      You need a USB memory stick and an mdi to USB cable to do this update. So far it seems to have fixed my problem. Song info has been read perfectly from my iPod touch 4G.

      Am posting this in case someone else needs the info...

      Go here for software download and instructions (only via USB per the instructions

      http://87.230.74.92/ci_softwareupdates00.html

      I bought my cable on amazon:

      http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o04_s00_i00

      I did this, and it "worked" because it said I already had the latest; popped up on the head unit.

      Hope this helps!

      great thanks for the info,

      call me cheap, but 20 bucks for a cable that i would just use ONCE, it kinda sucks...
      anybody in the South Florida that i can borrow the cable for this update?
      OR if i take it to the dealer would they do the update for me without charging?

      Use the cable with a thumb drive afterwards. I prefer that over moving SD back and forth for updates.

      I have yet to play a CD in my Tig.
