VW Navi's are pretty lame. The map data base is an update you have to pay for and that's if VW ever decides to release them. Plus the VW Navi's don't navigate in real time. If you want to navigate in real time use Google Maps or Waze on a smart phone or a tablet.

So do you have a recommendation on a good aftermarket head unit thatís similar to the oem ones, I really donít need Navi just really want the oem look but thereís a lot out there so Iím looking for a solid recommendation

Thanks

Read up on the RCD330. It a good choice for what you're seeking and is inexpensive. May have to change out the CAN-Bus Gateway Module to avoid battery issues.

Look at the RCD330 forums for answers.
