That said, I'd be curious to know if anyone with the same HU as me has installed one without programming. Hope you can see the logic here.
Yup, I personally know one guy in SF and seen it in action. It is plug and play.

One question does the phone features on the MK6 GTI work? Steering wheel, main info screen selection etc?

I'd still like to know how this could work with Android phones that are NOT mirrorlink compatible.. I'm guessing bluetooth only..

I believe it does not, only way to connect it is through the front of the head unit and that can enable car play

Yup, the steering wheel controls work.

Yea, only bluetooth for Android phones, no real benefit here unless you like the updated look with faster processor.

I will add to this, The steering control works as it should, however the MFI will no longer display media info.

Androids phone is only compatible with BT audio with the MK7 style menu which the headunit is build on. It isn't that bad to be honest.

The video if not edited in any way looks like the unit processor is pretty fast and the touch screen sensitive which is sweet! How does it sound and will it recognize US FM or HD radio frequencies?
No Vagcom is needed, and MFI will not display ANY info from the headunit. (Because these heaunits are used in the lower VW lineup in China which does not have MFI). US FM should work fine and NO HD radio.

Just to chime in.


Has this installed in our Jetta and it is leaps and bounds better than the old RCD-510 or RNS-315.

It is capacitive touch so the feel is just amazing. The UI is also so much nicer and modern. The bluetooth functionality is much better. The larger screen is also nice and the rearview camera looks awesome on it.

Only downside is no MFD display or upgraded audio.

If you have a RCD-310,RCD-510, RNS-315. I would say it is a no brainer upgrade. The RNS-510 might be worth keeping if you really need NAV.

How does the backup camera work with it? I have the OEM camera and I'm not seeing any port for the 26 pin connector unless I'm majorly missing something?

Thanks for the update everyone, I have one on order. Can't wait to get rid of Sirius and the RCD 510.

Any reason to spend an extra $70 on the official version versus the cheaper hacked version?

Screw it, I just bought one. The RCD330+ that comes with carplay (the non hacked version) is on eBay for $229 shipped.
