Thanks for the heads up. I ordered the update an hour ago for my 2015. I know the nav on the rns 510 isn't loved by many, but I find it easy to use, especially when my wife is driving by herself and doesn't want to use waze.

When I bought my 2015 Passat I also updated the firmware, map and a program which lets you use the DVD player for movies while underway. Cost in 2016 was under $ 50.00 shipped to me.

I for one think the Navi in my Passat sucks big time. It has asked me several times to enter which country I am in while sitting at home in my driveway and never gone more than 50 miles from home. To enter and save waypoints is a royal PIA.

The VW Navi is Garmin based, but nowhere near as easy to manipulate.But it makes a great back-up screen!

As an aside, I just bought another Garmin GPS which has far more features than the RNS-510. The Garmin gives me three new map updates a year FREE and the whole unit is less than an old VW map update. The current Garmin map is 2019.30.

I'll be damned to pay VW or their agent over $ 100.00 for a lousy DVD which costs them $ 0.15 or less to duplicate. A charge of $10.00 to maybe even $ 20.00 is a reasonable profit but not a 1,000 % profit, that is gouging!

Probably a dumb question but can the firmware be updated via a burned CD with the proper files or does it have to be a DVD?

You can use a burned disc. I have the map dvd for sale in the classified section.
