Don't expect much from a new one. I had mine replaced and I still get SD errors.

Yeah, the newer units with the SSD and different controller seem to have more issues with the SD Cards. Maybe a firmware flash will help that?

Hoping so. When I had my K unit replaced it was replaced with a K unit. Maybe some drivers with L units can chime in and see if they are experiencing any SD issues?

I'm using this Sony card (32GB SDHC), it's worked flawlessly in my '13 SE with the 510 unit.

Sadly, my 2013 Passat TDI was hit while parked by a driver who fell asleep and it was declared a total loss by insurance. This happened on 8/10/2016, so I didn't see a dollar from VW for either a fix or a buyback, as I was excluded from the settlement. My daily driver is now a 2016 Honda Accord EL-X sedan.

I complained about slowness, Sd card errors, and the occasional "it won't turn on for at least 5 minutes after starting the car" type of problems.

You have an SE, therefore an RCD510, not RNS510. It is made by a different manufacturer(Can't remember off the top of my head who). It has different software, and most likely, different hardware.

So far so good. I just put a SD card in two days ago for the first time and seems fine. A little disappointed that they didn't give me a newer RNS, but it's working. Will post back here if anything wonky occurs.

Alrighty, just had my first error yesterday on one of my cards. Putting together a couple more cards to see if this unit is bunk as well. Still troubled as to why VW wouldn't furnish me a replacement unit that had all the latest and greatest advancements (HW, SW, SSD, and of course maps).
