    I will probably post even after the problem is resolved with my b5 passat. Of course to tell how it drives.
  3. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Does anyone know if there are anymore updates for the RNS510 planned in North America? The last one was in 2016 and I am reluctant to buy it given another one might (should) come. If not it's pretty disappointing given I bought my wife's 2015 in April 2016 which means it was obsolete 1 month...

    I just purchased a 2014 Passat SE with navigation... How does the mapping update? My previous car navigation system came with a DVD that could be replaced each year with the map and information updates (cost a fortune!). I am curious because this past weekend, we went to a couple places that...

  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been searching for a while and I've probably read every thread on this issue. I am wondering if anyone has found some other way of fixing the fading LCD (other than sending the cluster away to have it re-soldered, or replacing it with ... is it a W8 cluster?). I haven't seen an...

    So I posted a thread a week ago about my key. I bought this car from a family member. Its a 99 passat 1.8t AEB. The key was destroyed. (Ran over by lawn mower) and there is no key. I went to my closest dealer. 1 1/2 hours away and ordered one. I was told by many people that this car doesn't have...

    I have a 1999 B5 Passat 1.8t AEB automatic with 160k miles on her. I'm wondering what would be the next key things to look into to keep her running as long and as happily as possible. What I've done since I bought her (between 150k miles): - Full proper tune-up (NGK Spark Plugs, Mann air and...

    Before I get yelled at for searching, that's what Ive been doing for the last Hour and a half. When I had my mechanic look at my 03 GLS he told me I needed to put some tree pins in the belly pan to keep it up. Well this was just over a week ago. I bought the car a couple days later. So less...

    I have standard NAV on my '07 Passat Wagon. S/W version is 4B. Does anyone know if there any software changes in the newer version that make the Navigation usable? Currently it is just about useless. It can't find most of the places I put in - even if I put in the address. And there is no...

  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did a search and found threads from 2003-05, but nothing more recent. I have an 04.5 w/ the 1.8T that has the under-hood insulating pad that has been chewed up from mice attempting to make nests. I was looking to replace it but thought about just removing it entirely. Have there been any...
