Is my 2005.5 Jetta TDI w/ red MFD compatible with all or only 'some' versions of the RNS 510 navigation unit (part ID: 3C0 035 684)? I'm looking into doing a retrofit of the 3C0 035 684 C version into my Jetta. Are there any issues? :confused: Currently, I have the following installed and working perfectly:
  • Sirius Radio
  • Bluetooth Module (9w3 version)
  • Premium 7 unit w/ 6-disc changer
  • 2005.5 multi-function steering wheel
A few months ago, I thought I had read on this exact site that my Jetta was only compatible with the 3C0 035 684 A version, but I can't seem to find that clarification anymore (hence this post).

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I'm not 100% sure but they should all be compatible. The reason why the RNS 315 won't work in red MFD is because they were only installed in cars w/white MFD and therefore the interface is different. DDP vs. BAP.

The only concern is that your early car may have the battery drain issue. At worst, you plug in a new CAN BUS gateway and code it for the equipment on your car: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a5/rcd510-rns510-swap-vw.htm

Mine didn't need one.
