  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi all, Just picked up a 12 3.6 SE and would like to upgrade the HU. My stock unit has BT with steering wheel controls but was looking to get the 510 unit instead. Is it a simple swap? Been reading about it and not sure if VAGCOM is required. I would definitely want to keep the BT capability.

    Just bought a 2014 TDI with RNS 510. I would like to transfer my iTunes library to the HDD and would appreciate some advice on how to do this. One specific question is how do I create a download that maintains the album structure. Another question is do I have to convert from .m4a to .mp3. Thanks

    Hey all new to the site. I desperately need help, I swapped out a premium 8 radio for the rns 510. Everything works great except I have no sound. I've read that all I have to do is some coding. Has anyone here done this swap before? Thanks Rus
