  • 3T0 035 680 A (3T0035680A) to version 2704.
  • 7F0 035 680 (7F0035680) to version 2700.
  • 7E0 035 680 (7E0035680) to version 2700.
  • Further to follow as the firmware is loaded.
  • USA Firmware has yet to be released
  • Revision A units can be upgraded with the modified firmware (see link below) – thanks to Josi (also for the unofficial SWL recovery CD)

Download the files and extract them using winrar and you will have a NRG format ISO file to burn. Using Nero burn a DVD+RW or DVD-R (CDR works as well) at a slow speed (4 x is ok for DVD and 16 x for CD). Make sure you use quality media and keep the burn speed down as low as you can to ensure there are no problems during the installation process. Also note that you may need to edit a file before you burn it (see below) if you want to access the setup menu without Vagcom/VCDS.

Warning! This upgrade WILL delete your music and/or maps if you have a firmware version PRIOR to version 1100/1102. Units with a firmware version of 1100/1102 will not have music and maps deleted.

Warning! There is a remote chance of you ‘bricking’ the unit, this is a fraction of a percent but it could happen! The process takes around 60 minutes.’

Warning! There are a small number of users where the RNS 510 does not know where it is after it’s been powered on, details of the previous location are kept in the unit but at this stage there is no pattern to this problem.

Warning! Users with cars MY07 and earlier may experience power drain issues after the upgrade. See the post “Upgrading 2nd generation radios (RCD 300, RCD 500) to 3rd generation (RCD 210, RCD 310, RNS 310, RCD 510) power drain issue” for more details.

Warning! Users with the Skoda UHV bluetooth 1Z0 035 729 B (1Z0035729B) may want to delay upgrading the firmware, there is an issue with the RNS 510 no longer displaying the phone book and/or the call details but signal strength etc are visible for some phones. My HTC Diamond for example worked fine before the update but only partially afterwards however my Iphone 3G worked fine before and after. This is not a problem with the 1Z0 035 729 D (1Z0035729D) Skoda UHV bluetooth kit. The MFD functions as per normal with phone book and last calls listed correctly. Android 2.1 phones work fine with the update.

Note! Test/Setup Mode. The firmware can allow access to enter test/setup mode without Vagcom/VCDS access see Accessing the Setup Menu on the RNS 510 head units with firmware later than 1100. The procedure for entering the test/setup mode for those with Vagcom/VCDS is slightly different as well. To enter the test/setup mode when the RNS 510 is operating press and hold the setup button, keep holding it when the radio menu appears and shortly after the test menu appears . I had to reboot my unit after coding it but it may be possible a power cycle is enough.

Note! Failure (Gateway Error 202) You can downgrade back to 1100 by inserting the 1100 firmware and rebooting the RNS 510 (Setup + eject + info).

    Hi Guys,

    Just got Skoda Octavia 2 elegance Business line with Columbus. I would like to know how i can check the running FW and HW. When reading through some posts, they say to hold down the setup button for at least 15sec, but nog option available to check. Done it with engine on and off.

    any suggestion?

    Anybody know if I can roll back in a D unit from 3890 to 2760?

  • Peter

    Hello, i hvae updated my RNS 510 “C” to this FW 2760 last Month. Now i have a Back View Cam ( Low ) and very often i have only a black screen.

    Has anybody an idea, whats the Problem?

    I drive an VW Touran 2003, Gateway was “Q”.

    Thanks

    Peter

  • Moustafa

    After reading through three pages of fail it would be wise to hold off this update. If I read correctly, some people have bricked and/or unable to rollback to the previous firmware. Besides, there is no mention of what the bug fixes or new features are and I don’t want to just hope the update will make things better. I’m running 2660 firmware and everything works fine. Yes, it’s a tad sluggish with navigating between menus at times and yes it would be nice to take advantage of some of the 27** features i.e wider screen for RVC but seriously if it’s at the cost of playing russian roulette with the player then it’s not worth the risk.

    Unless someone who has had problems and is willing to take the risk and update the firmware and report advantages of this update then I can’t really see the need to update, these units are just too expensve to be messing around with and seriously, if it aint broken, dont try to fix it.

    Hey guys, I successful upgraded to this particular version of firmware. THANKS!!!

    However, my main goal for the upgrade is to play SD card bigger than 2gb… however, still unable to… i noticed it says “SDHC 32 GB Support (HW04 and above)”

    After the upgrade, i hold the setup button and found the following information… 1TOO35680C
    HW-Version – H03
    SW-Version – 2760
    SV SW- Version – C_EU9.242_1520
    HW Vehicle 0xC201

    Hope someone can help 🙂

    • Leo

      Hi Dennis,
      You will notice the SDHC32 requires HW04 or newer. Meaning it require Harware Version 04 or newer, and you have hardware version 03, that’s why it’s not working. You can try all you want with software, it won’t work.
      Sorry mate.

    Hi, I have a unit 1T0035680C, upgraded to this firmware successfully, but can’t play SD card with 8GB… it has been formatted to FAT32, but the system is not recognising the SD card at all, not even an error.

    An update… I got a 2GB SD card to work… but not the 8GB… so is it the firmware or my rns-510?

    Hey guys, because I’m from Australia, our maps don’t support the new POI system etc, so I downgraded my unit from 3800 to 2760. (RNS-510 Version D)
    Everything is working fine, MDI, Bluetooth phone, maps, POi’s etc.
    Except I can no longer stream Bluetooth audio.
    It shows the pause and play, which does pause and play the song on the phone, but there is no audio, just completely silent.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    HI,

    I have a Touareg 07 ( 7L6 facelift) with a RNS510.
    It was in version 1002, and I did upgraded it to FW 1102 without any issue.
    I tried to upgrade it in version 2660 and in version 2780 without success..
    The 2660 fails during HDD process and the 2780 fails at start (or about at start).

    Any ideas?
