Since the Unibrace RB is only for FWD cars, I started looking for other bracing options. Anyone have experience, thoughts or opinions on these two parts?

I’ve also been considering and RCD330 for the spring. Same question; experience, thoughts or opinions?

EDIT: There’s nothing wrong with the OEM head unit. I’ve just been thinking about an upgrade for awhile now.

I love my RCD330. The Rennline phone mount makes for a totally perfect setup! I use mine pretty much exclusively for Android Auto and standard FM radio occasionally. I have not wired a backup camera into it, but that's one of those QOL mods I'd like to eventually get to -- I've seen it done.

No experience with the RCD330 but I will second the Rennline phone mount, it's excellent and worth the cost IMO. Loved the one for my GTI so much I got one for the SportWagen.

I even ordered the wrong one from Rennline and they told me no problem just send us back the wrong one and we will ship out the correct one. They shipped the correct one the next day before I had even shipped the other back. There is a mount for the MK6 Jetta and it says for SportWagen select "soft touch" but under the MK6 Golf/GTI mount it says SportWagen in the title but then says in the description **not for Jetta**. I needed the one for the Golf like I thought but didn't check.

Nice! Any issues with MFD compatibility? (I ask because I have a Polar FIS.)

The backup camera was something I was considering down the road as well.... 🤔

I have an UB under brace for sale if you’re interested.

I suppose I never used my MFD in unison with my old head unit. And I still don't, so I'm not actually sure what compatibility you mean? I use my RCD330 completely separately from the MFD. My MFD still has all its pages and functions normally.

AirPods cause #applefanboi

+Seemless connection
+Great sound IMO
+Decent battery life and they fast charge in the case

-Does not fit in my small ear canals very well (the Pro version have rubber attachments with different sizes)
-Only Pro version is noise canceling
-Price compared to other options
-Have to use Siri or your phone to adjust the volume (I think the Pro you can tap one of them)
