  1. I imagine this will also work on model year 2015 cars as well (except for Golf family). Those cars had option of rns 315 from factory also. I'm guessing the original web page with this listing was last updated in 2014.

  2. Nice price. The other thing to consider is, if your car has a built in compass it may conflict with the NAV's GPS sensor. I believe you'll need to disable it. .

  3. Got the unit in 3 days and installed it today.

    The good is that the unit is plug and play in the 2013 Jetta Sportwagen. The iPhone paired with no issue, the buttons on the steering wheel works fine, and the NAV was fully functional.

    The Bad: There was no opening above the unit to place the NAV antenna. I didn't think that would be a big deal but no double stick tape was provided as per the video so I had to run to the store to get some. Once I had it, I found a spot to stick the antenna before installing the unit. The unit doesn't display the Navigation on the MFI screen on the dash but I don't see that as a big deal since the unit works fine on its own. But the unit had Version 1 maps while Version 9 is the current annual release. That is a big deal to me since the unit has 9 year old maps. And there is no audio streaming…but since there is a jack, that is not a big issue.

    Hope this helps to the readers.

  4. What do you mean by MK6 Jetta? I have a 2015 Jetta SE. The original stereo is identical to mine. Just want to make sure this will fit my car. Why do you need a new antenna?

  5. how is the sound quality compared to the Premium 7 ? i'm thinking of getting this for my mkv gli

    i went through 2 eonos but i return them bc the sound quality was horrible.

  6. My back up camera on my 2013 GLI stopped working
    I replaced the camera and checked the fuses but still nothing
    I think it's the radio/ navigation system that has the issue
    Is this a common problem?

  7. I bought a stereo for my Volkswagen Beetle on eBay it's the bigger screen and dosent come with navigation, will it ask for a code when they install it? If so where can I get the code from?

  8. what about blutooth function on a car that did not come with it ie 2014 jetta s? Can a BT mic be installed and will the XM work if a antenna is installed?

  9. Have a mk6 golf with the low spec rcd210 radio looking to upgrade to rcd510 with Bluetooth And Gps, I presume it's not simply plug and play ? Or is it

  10. Quick question. Since the GPS antenna can work from inside the dash (I verified that it can work in my 2014 Jetta S), can the same be said with the SiriusXM antenna from the same location? Or do I have to put it on the dashboard?

  11. At 5:40, where he talks about a Sirius antenna, go buy a Sirius antenna with a short cord and pop the antenna on the dash so you have the feature. I did on my second install of this unit to another Jetta and it works fine here in New York.
