  • 1T0 035 680 A (1T0035680A) from software version 0421, 0520, 1000, 800 and 900 to version 1100.
  • 1T0 035 680 B (1T0035680B) from software version 0421, 0520, 1000, 800 and 900 to version 1100.

After the process is complete you will have a B revision unit.

The firmware can be downloaded from here in a NRG format and should be burnt to DVD +RW (CDR is also ok) using Nero. Alternatively you can download the ISO version from here.

Warning! When this upgrade is performed it will delete all the music and require your maps to be reloaded (last addresses and home address are retained however as are other settings). There is also a remote chance of your ‘bricking’ your unit. The process will take around 60 minutes.

  1. Unlock and/or open the car
  2. Do not start the car
  3. Turn the RNS 510 on and insert the firmware CD/DVD into the drive

Note: Setup now has to entered by coding using Vagcom\VCDS. See seperate guide for performing this.

Note: If you receive a clamp state error ‘a swl disk is detected but it is unvalid because of clamp state. please switch clamp state to hour mode and re insert disk’ this means you need to change the time format of the clock in the RNS 510 from 12 hour to 24 hour clock.

  • Hello does any body knows if the RNS-510 US version will ever control a TV tuner will there ever be an update? if yes where can i download? it thanks

  • Bzt

    Has anyone tried this upgrade? are there any successtories?

    There is a risk of bricking the unit? Has anyone had negative results? and how to cope with them?

  • Jani

    Hello! How i know what is my device firmware version? Can i use this because i have seat multimedia system(same as rns-510)thx!

  • The only thing I can think of for you guys getting stuck at the 202 error would be to downgrade your firmware to an earlier working version. I’ll tell you these RNS510 service tools sw is coming in more and more handy by the moment, I tried upgrading this from 1100 to 1102 and got the 202 error. Loaded up my RNS510 service tools sw and did firmware downgrade, reloaded 1100 and am just leaving it alone. How much of a difference can it really be from 1100 to 1102. If any of you are in the states and need the fw downgraded after bricking your unit I’ll do it free of charge for you, you just supply the beer, lol.

    Hey,
    i read so much about the 1100 update, and i decided to do it. I have an A version made from Siemens (not Continental) (originaly HW:04, SW:1020). The unit is absolutely not stolen (I bought it for 3 Years at my Volkswagen dealer) and I get, the same as many other, the gateway 202 Error at 87% (10%gateway). I put in the 2720 gateway error recovery CD and now the unit works again on 1100, so far so good. BUT the steering wheel buttons are completely disabled (coding with VCDS, I had no sucess)…before on 1020 they were working. So I think, this was the problem of the gateway error 202, so that the buttons are not able to communicate with the Navigation any more…

    My question: has anyone the same problems, and was anyone possible to fix it? Does anyone, with an Siemens RNS510,succeeded in Updating it completely?

    Thank you very much! Michael

    Hi,

    I have purchased a RNS510 with firmware 2660 but have yet to install in my 07 Jetta. To avoid upgrading the Can bus can I downgrade to firmware 1100? Will I have any issues doing so? Many Thanks

    • Michael

      Dear, you will not get any problems by downgrading to 1200 or 1100 if your rns510 was not modified (eeprom) with rns manager or something (I think you have a B version? if you have a C version you should NOT downgrade)… if so, you might brick your unit… you will also lose nice things, that were upgraded with version 2660 or above.

  • If the software update still doesn’t start, even after selecting 24 hour mode for the clock, then leave the update CD in the drive and do a hardware reset. Press the two buttons to the right of the DVD slot (the eject and the i button) and also the SETUP button all at the same time. The RNS 510 will reboot and the update will start as shown in the screen shots.

    hello can anyone help please,

    i have a RNS510 1t0 035 680 B, a few weeks ago it started shutting down and starting back up randomly, when it is shut down you can still hear noise coming from inside.

    when it started happening more frequent i deleted the firmware and tried reinstalling a few different firmware versions, but due to it shutting down so much during the install it wouldn’t go past at most 65%

    after doing this so many times it now will not go past the welcome to volkswagon screen and it still shuts down!

    can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it? my reading of forums leaves me to believe it is the mainboard. does anyone know of anywhere i can get it repaired to?

    your help very much appreciated, many thanks
