      After some very brief testing, it looks like the only music you can control is on your phone/iPod, not the music from the HDD on the RNS510.

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

      It speeds up the MDI respond and it eliminates the few second gap of the beginning of each song.

      Cool, perfectly safe for all versions of the MDI (red/white?) for people on SW1140?

      Nope SD will not work. You will need a USB adapter part # 000 051 446 B

      No worries, a friend with a 2011 TDI Wagon said he put the MFD update via SD Card so I may give it a shot on a small blank card and put that folder at the root (or wherever it specifies), I'll post up if it does as many VW stereos have the SD Card I guess (I know the RNS-510 does)

      So after multiple complains to VW middle east , VW dealer in saudi Arabia finally contacted me to upgrade my firmware for free to over come the latency in the rear view camera in addition to other few glitches in the current fire mare in my CC ...

      I would like to know how to get the current firmware version in order to document and share with forum the differences between the old and the new firmware I'm about to get

      You can only update from USB by design, no work arounds.

      This is an update for the MDI, not the radio or the MFD, so radio version does not matter.
      Keep us posted.

      I have to say, you guys are fantastic. Thanks to everybody for posting pics and steps for updating so that even an idiot like me can get through it.
      I am still unsure how to access the sub channels in HD radio though. I think I might have an older RNS (cc 2009) and maybe it wasn't possible before the update but should I be able to with the firmware upgrade.
      By the way, I am in the Boston metro area with the firmware on cd , and the VIM and the midi+cable if anyone needs to use them...

    24. 12-23-2011 07:51 PM #129
      Can I assume that the DVD in motion hack will work on the RNS-510 in my 2012 Passat TDI?

    25. 12-26-2011 07:23 AM #130
      Hi all,

      Let me have a minute of your attention and ask one question. This is my first post and I'm very impressed with the content of this forum.

      I have a RNS 510 with the following Versin Info in hidden menu:

      1T0035680D

      HW-VERSION H60

      SW-VERSION 3800
      SV SW VERSION C_EU_10.341_t2


      In my understanding, this is the latest RNS-510 firmware available, but Wen I tried to install I got the Downgrade Error saying that the version installed is newer than the one I'm installing.

      I also got this other site where show a different firmware schema 3976 that I believe is newer the one I have, but now I'm confused, there are two lines of firmware for RNS ?

      http://www.my-gti.com/3116/volkswage...3974-3976-3978

      Thanks in advance and I hope contribute with this amazing forum

      ^^^^^^

      Yes that is correct there are two type of firmware the US and the RoW. From the info of the version that you have you should be using the one from the link that you provided. Hope this helps.

      Ok, my next 2 natural question are:

      Is there any substantial different from both subset of firmware ?

      Can I move from one type of feature to another ? or this is linked with the type of hardware ?

      Thanks a lot

      I don’t know what the different is but it is hardware linked. So you will have to use the EU version.

      Just got done burning the iOS file on a cd. Current stuck at "software download - source activated, searching for swl image" screen... For about 10-15min, any Idea? Should I restart? Any advise would be helpful thanks

      Update: nvm, got it working again on my 4th CD. For some reason the other ones doesn't work....

      Oh no...

      Finally I got to drive around and trying out the new firmware, right when I started play around with the nav.... I realize I can't enter anything into the address bar!!! And the rest of my nav system is also working funky - basically unusable!! I tried to erase all of nav memory and now I can't even enter my own home address.

      Im trying to reinstall the firmware again right now and hopefully it will fix the problem....

      Anyone else encounter this?
