You need to swap the radio, install the gps antenna inside the dash, disconnect the compass module, and use VCDS to code it properly.
Hello everyone. I am new to the forum. I know it is better to search and I have. I am looking to see what is generally involved in this swap at the title. I would look to find a head unit from a 2012 GLI to switch with mine. Would I just be able to swap head units or is this more complicated than that?
So I should be fine about the disc changer and Bluetooth hardware? From my understanding the rns is also a DVD player? I was reading about some of the disc changers in vw's being separate from the head unit. Same goes for the Bluetooth? And about disconnecting the compass, will it still show up on the MFD? It will just read from the new rns 510 unit. Thanks for the reply.
