      Oh how I would love that feature!

      Anyone know what work has to be done to get it? I'd love to think that since we have speakerphone/bluetooth that a firmware update could add it for us. But being a lowly computer programmer I don't know much about them (note the sarcasm here, as I'm laying it on pretty thick )

      Voice activated nav would be great, but from my understanding the mic for the phone could not be used. Mind you, I'm just recalling info that I read quite some time back on another discussion on this forum. I believe you'd have to add an additional mic and wire it appropriately, to use specifically for the nav.

      I did notice that you can now control music a bit with voice.

      When you push the talk button say "music" and then "options". You will be given several commands that you can use: play, stop, pause, next, and back. I think that is all. But, it's kind of glitchy, it doesn't always work right.

      Hmm, can already do most of those quicker through the arrows right next to the speak button on the steering wheel

      Alas, when you say help (which will tell you what you can say), that isn't updated but I'll give it a shot.

      Was hoping for music searching and nav help. That's be the safest thing for me!

      Anyone have details on mic-ing these guys up and getting the additional functionality?

      Will give it a shot.

      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.

      Do you know what firmware you have on it now?
      But it should work. US and Canada units are the same.

      What does the MDI Update entail as far as features, or is it more of a speed/optimization?

      Thanks,

      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)
