    help RNS 510 Version?

    Hello all

    How do I determine the version of my RNS-510? A, B, C.. etc?

    Background:
    I've just stumbled upon this forum in my search for knoweledge/updates on my RNS 510 system.
    This looks like the place to be for the kind of information I'm seeking.

    I recently aquired a VW Touran 2005 Highline, which came with an integrated Navigation/DVD/CD/Radio - system.
    I'm pretty sure that it is a RNS-510 of some sort.

    I'm looking to update firmware/maps (western Europe) as I'm pretty sure that no updates to either have been applied since 2005.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Hi, check to see if you can access the info from your RNS-510 itself first.

    If you turn it on and hold down the setup button, it will hopefully bring up a screen like this:
    14446069285 b87922a6e5 z

    The letter at the end of the delivery part no will tell you your version.

    If you can't access that menu then I believe you will need VCDS to find out your version no or to enable that menu.

    Also I believe that if your unit has a star button on the top right then it's at least a version C? Maybe someone else could confirm that?

    Hope that helps

    Hi if it doesn't say maps on the side buttons of the screen then its the RCD510. If you do have a button on the left of the screen saying Maps, great. Press and hold the setup button for about 10 seconds and the information for your unit will appear, post it on here and i will try and advise you. But in order to do some map updates you have to a RNS update too.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hello seabrook

    Thank you very much for replying.
    Unfortunately, the only option I get, when holding down the SETUP-button is Radio DAB.

    Hello

    I have learned that my system is a:
    1TO 035 680
    HW: H74

    I'd like to get some pointers on how/where to find updates for firmware and maps.

    Thanks

    How did you find out?

    I updated my firmware from here:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    However I only went to version 3980 as the only thing i really wanted was to upgrade the SD card capacity to SDHC. Worked a treat, tho it did wipe my maps. (but not a problem as, well, this forum )
