Hi bobby, yes sorta is like a mute, or reduce volume at least. Did you use vagcom to change it? Would be quite pricey for me without one for such a small change

Yes, you need VCDS (or something similar). I think it's changed in the steering wheel coding from 'mute' to 'push to talk'.

I see you're in London so you could you the mk5golfgti.co.uk forum to see if there's someone near you with VCDS. Lots of people will do small coding changes for a box of beer. I know I do!

When playing music from pandora or Spotify using BT only and not plugged into usb, does the display show song name and artist or does that only work when plugged into usb?

My current rns-315 shows song info when playing with BT. Does this still work with the rcd-330 plus?

Mine shows the song/artist when using BT only, from Pixel 2 XL and Amazon Music app. Haven't tried others though.

I want to make sure I get the best version of this HU. I think it’s the 187b version right? And the manufacturer is Desay? Does anyone have a link to this unit? Is it better to buy from aliexpress or eBay?

Is that the one that has car play and android auto? Thereís so many different makers and versions itís hard to keep straight. I got the 187b with the VW logo and part number on it. I think itís the one that comes with Apple car play from factory and not the hacked version.

I've got a pretty limited post history, but if you look at mine you'll find a link to the one I bought and then upgraded to get Android Auto. Picked it up on eBay, it arrived quickly, and then I was able to upgrade pretty easily. I can send you links to the firmware too if you PM me.

Damn. It looks like the one I ordered “desay” manufacturer doesn’t have any firmware upgrades so I can’t add android auto, which isn’t a big deal since I use iPhone.

The only thing that I would have done is upgrade to the red theme so that all the screens better match the interior. I saw the red theme on rcd330plus.com

Anyone know why there isn’t any firmware for the desay model?

I think it has slightly different hardware, just enough that any old upgrade firmware won't work. For what it's worth, I believe the Desay units have the fewest weirdo bugs that a lot of these things have...

Has anyone added an Echo Dot to their Golf to work alongside their unit?
