I don't take credit for this at all I just know it worked for me. Most of the info I got was from Robpol86's post on tdiclub.com so credit goes to him. There are bunch of discussions about the subject going on now on a couple of forums.

Obligatory warning: As with any electronics when you make firmware changes there is a chance of bricking your unit. If you don't accept that risk then stop reading now. Also playing DVDs while driving is dangerous and intended for passengers only. Just like texting/talking DON'T DO IT.

1. Download poweriso http://download.cnet.com/PowerISO/3000-2646_4-10439118.html or any other CD/DVD image file processing tool. I used poweriso.

2. Download the Video In Motion file here. http://www.robpol86.com/index.php/File:RECODE_VIM_Berto89.zip There are 2 files in the zip.

VIM_berto.iso is the video in motion file.
RECODE_berto.iso is the file if you want to revert changes.


3. Open the file and burn a copy of the VIM file to a cd-r using poweriso.

4. Start the car eject any cd/dvd in the unit.
Press and hold Eject, Day/Night and Guide.
While holding buttons your screen will go black insert burned CD-R.
When it prompts you OK/Cancel on a white screen, hit OK.
It will reboot a few more times.
The head unit should auto-reboot when you remove the CD.


This worked for me on a CDN Spec RNS-510

In the install folder there are 2 files, one is the modification file, and the other is the restore file.

I did this on my March 2010 GTI RNS-510, and it works like a charm.

In 2 years when someone comes looking for this file and the link is dead/gone, send me a pm, I just archived the file.

So can someone explain to me what this does for me?

The RNS 510 Model can play DVD discs as video discs when the car is stationary. This is limited to stationary by the radio's firmware so you can't drive your car and watch a movie at the same time. This hack removes that limitation so that you can watch movies/discs while driving. Mostly people want this for their passengers.
