      Proceed at your own risk. I take no responsibility.


      Firmware 1140 Update for RNS-510:

      US-SW1140
      File name: US_RNS-510_SW1140.iso
      File description: US RNS-510 SW1140 applies to SW 0320,0360,0380,0980,1000,1040
      File size: 404.21 MB


      Changing the Volkswagen RNS 510 Color Scheme:
      Follow these instructions on how to change the color of your RNS found here.


      Use this file to enable Video in Motion:

      VIM-Video in Motion
      Insert the cd with the unit turned off and without the key in the ignition.
      As soon as the unit starts to come on press the Eject button, Day/Night button, and Guide all at the same time to get the unit to reset.
      It'll ask you to confirm the update and you'll press "ok"
      Wait for it to run and you'll be done.


      Just a FYI you can import destination from a SD card in to your RNS using the following website.
      VW Labs

      MDI UPDATE

      1) Download update file from MDI for cars up to 21/2012

      2) Please store update file into Root-folder (=main folder) The name of update file must not be changed or converted.

      3) Connect USB-stick with update file by use of USB-adapter (000 051 446 B) with
      multimedia interface MEDIA IN.

      4) The update load will start automatically be switching on the radio/navigation
      head unit. The display of head unit indicates the status of update load, as far as
      the multimedia interface MEDIA IN as selected origin source as well as USB-connection
      was active. Please do not remove USB-stick from multimedia interface MEDIA IN port during the whole update load.

      5) After successful finish of upload file (appr. 1 minute), the status of upload will be
      indicated in head unit’s display.

      There is A TON of information in this thread. I have tried my best to make it easy to understand if you still have questions please first.

      Thanks - I'm interested in this. What functionality, if any, does it add? How does one check one's current firmware version, to see if this update applies? Any instructions on installation?

      Thanks again.

      You will need VCDS to check your current firmware.

      As far as instructions go:
      1.Download.
      2.Burn ISO file to CD-R.
      3.Insert into nav unit.
      4.It'll go off and on a few times then ask you to confirm update.

      What does this (firmware) update have? I know map updates give you new POIs, streets, cameras, etc.

      It just fixes some bugs and makes the system a bit more responsive. For the older firmware it will make some graphic changes.

      FYI I went from firmware 1040 (510 Version C) to the current, 1140. Burned CD loaded fine and the 510 did its reboots to complete; took about 40 minutes. Don't see any response changes -- maybe understandable -- and I had to reload my SD card (I play music from it instead of the HD). The update seemed to cause a loading error when reading from the SD after the update, so I'm thinking the update might have changed the stored library somewhat (which the 510 seems to keep in memory). But all's well and I'm hoping it fixed a couple of weird, very minor bugs. Thanks for the link.

      This is what I got after inserting CD with ISO image. My current SW version is 1040.
      Edit: A quick google search revealed you have "to change the time format of the clock in the RNS 510 from 12 hour to 24 hour clock". Will try later and see if it works.

      ^^^
      What did you use to burn the CD?

      Use this if you will still have problem with it.

      Yes that is correct. You can even plug in a 32 GB.

      How did you burn the ISO?

      The car has to be OFF RNS ON for it to work. Do you maybe have VIM activated?

      I flashed two more RNS’ last night and no issue at all.

      I will be in Brooklyn around noon on Saturday and if you want we can meet and I will give you my CD.

      I updated mine with car off, door closed and I left the clock on its 12 hour setting. VIM enabled via tool, not software, and still works.

      Correct, video in motion, meaning video can play while driving. I bought my 510 from an online vendor who unlocked it with some kind of VW approved tool. From what I've read, if you use software available online to unlock VIM then you'll have to rerun it after the 1140 upgrade in order to get it back (all other settings seem to remain -- nice to see that, actually). I don't watch video while driving, of course, but it is nice to have (kids, traffic, etc.)
