I purchased a copy of the 4366 from this guy. It arrived last night and installed without issue. HOLY COW, what a difference in response! Happy customer here.
I'm not sure I want to put the $ down for the updated maps since I can use my cell phone just as easy.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed previously since there are so many posts in this thread, but I'm just hoping I can get this fixed. I have a 2014 Passat TDI SEL that I purchased used last year. The RNS510 was working fine at the time of purchase, but slowly seemed to run worse and worse, until the point where it's at now, which is that it's stuck in a reboot cycle and never boots up. Unfortunately I didn't find this forum until until it stopped booting up or I would have grabbed the version info, but after reading the first post in this thread i'm assuming since it's a 2014 that it's probably a K unit with 4369. My question is, does this sound like a dying RNS510 Unit that would just need to be replaced? or is this something that a firmware update to say 5382 would fix?

I would absolutely update the firmware to the latest version. It solves several issues. I have a 2014 Passat TDI SEL also with the RNS-510 with SSD. I upgraded to 5382 and that solved all the issues. I then unlocked the Video in Motion and updated to the latest maps. I works very well now. I believe there is at least a 50/50 chance that by updating the RNS-510 firmware will fix it.

I have a '14 EOS with the RNS 510 that is very slow to start and switches to the backup camera very slowly... (sounds like the same problem most have). I'm wondering if there are any further FW updates that can help this thing out and improve user experience.

I was looking for a firmware update for my radio since its been acting up lately and after reading the first post I'm confused. I have firmware 4369 installed on my radio but the post says it could brick it, but I don't know which firmware I could update to since I have a J unit? Which firmware could I update it to or should I just stick to flashing the same firmware and hope the issues get fixed? Where could I find the firmware?
