I am stuck I want to update my firmware in my RNS 510. But, I don't know what rev. number I have w/o wripping into my dash. I have a 2009.5 (June built) Jetta TDI Sunroof Nav. When I press select it dosn't show the "Hidden Menu" what shows the Hardware and Firmware versions. If anyone could help that would be awesome!
My VIN is 3VWRL71K29M173002.
Just installed the 9W7 this week in my 2010 Sportwagen TDI replacing the 9W2. I wanted to confirm that it all works flawlessly, still have stereo Bluetooth music streaming and now have phone book and call info on my MFD. it's a shame it didn't come from the factory like this, but I'm happy to have it regardless. Git the 9W7 shipped for $250 from a Vortexer. Happy as can be. Thanks all for the help.Based on the fact that you confirmed it is stereo now with the 9W2, I think it is guaranteed to be the same thing with the 9W7!
I have the rcd-10 too I think. I don't have the base model of the 2014 jetta. Its the next one up. Does yours show caller ID on the MFD?I'm honestly not trying to rub anything in here, just wanted to share my experience, I have recently picked up my 2013 Golf Wagon (canadian JSW) with RCD-310 and I have to report that the BT works beautifully with my $80 outright Samsung Galaxy GIO, to the point where I'm amazed. The streaming music really brings out the worst in lower bitrate mp3s tho, so make sure you are using good stuff. Love the fact that if my app is still up from my drive in, when I go to drive home it detects the phone and resumes playback automatically Calls worked perfectly and streaming services like Songza sound great.
I'm curious if other peoples bluetooth behaves the same but i find streaming music to be really annoying... the only way i can listen to streamed (bluetooth) music from my iPhone is to play the stream from the phone first... meaning the stream must be playing before I can select the "source" on the radio....but still can't get it to play music.
I’m in the Denver area but have a 2011 Jetta TDI with updated one. However it’s not connecting to my iPhone XSmax. Thinking maybe the module under the seat is faulty. I hear the phone beep and commands when pushing phone button on steering wheel but won’t connect via Bluetooth. Any ideas?Posted this in my thread, but it fits here as well.
Just had a really great experience with the service department. Originally scheduled the appointment because my steering wheel was slightly to the left and I thought my alignment was off. When I went in, I had printed out the instructions on how to reprogram the car's computer so that it would show the phone menu in the MFD. They said they'd do it for no charge, and afterwards they thanked me for bringing that information in because VW wouldn't tell them how to fix the issue and they've had a number of new customers complaining about it. So they said they don't usually do alignments and all that before 1000 miles on the car, but they went ahead and did it anyways because I had brought that info to light.
I think it's pretty amusing that the guys here at TDIClub.com know more about reprogramming the car's computer than the guys at the dealerships.
Also I would like to say that if you live in the Denver area, check out Lithia Volkswagen on 104th. They have some great people all around and are willing to flash the bluetooth fix on 9w3 modules for free!
