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.

Good morning forum users...

Was curious if one of you could tell me if there is another firmware version for my car.I currently have the following:

K-Unit RNS510

SW Version - 4369
Map Version - 7963

I have V12 map on my desk, but don't know if I should update firmware first (if there is an update) then update the map. Also, the map update comes with zero instructions. I assume you put the disk in the cd slot and pray???

I started reading this thread from the beginning and y'all are alot more technically savvy with this than I am. But I also did not real all 70+ pages of threads. Any help or info would be appreciated.

just picked up a 2015 SEL, now I totally understand what people have been talking about- wow the 510 is so slow, backup cam rarely works in time, normally it comes on about 100 feet away from the spot I backed up at. as for video in motion, I downloaded the video in motion "update" and it ran the berto 89 recode and updated correctly, rebooted correctly but the video in motion still doesn't work. probably due to it being a late model 510

If you install the firmware update it has VIM included.

Hopefully, someone can provide info/suggestions on what to do. I ordered and tried to install the new Oct. issue Nav/Map update version 8534. The disc was left in the head unit for a couple of weeks and periodically I could hear it spinning but it never downloaded and update the existing data. What to do? The RNS510 functions fine otherwise.

When the dvd is in the drive press eject. It’ll show the progress. Did you select “save” when prompted?

Well, no message at all when I press eject-- the DVD simply ejects.

Then it’s probably loaded. If you’ve updated the firmware you’ll have the secret menu enabled. Press and hold setup, select version info, and check the map numbers.

When you purchase the new 2018 M12 North American maps for the RNS510, does it also include the firmware and boot software for the radio? I found a good link on how to update the hard drive to a faster solid state drive... but am curious if the DVD has everything you need to format a new hard drive.

It sounds like you also need the Software Recovery disk as well... and the Mega Download files that are required for a different partition size no longer link properly.
