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! 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.

    Hi all, i have one RNS 510 HW-Version H04 SW-Version 1020 SV SW-Version C_EU_5.540_t730. Can i Upgrade directley to version 6276?

  • Hi there, thanks a lot for the great work!

    I would like to update to 6276 from:

    – 1T0035680H
    – HW: H61
    – SW: 3970
    – Maps: West Europe
    – Map version: 7690

    I have a couple of questions:

    1) Can I install this update and at once or do I need to install older versions first?
    2) Do I need VCDS in any way?
    3) Is this version suited for Europe and more specifically the Dutch language?
    4) What is the HDD distribution here? I heard that 35% could be needed for the newest V12 European maps.

    Answers to one ore more of these questions would be highly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Can I upgrade to 6276?
    I have installed 3T0 035 680 C with 3984 (factory) or do I have to go for a 5xxx version?

  • Jerry Normandin

    Hi,
    I have a 2014 TDI (USA) Beetle with a RNS510. HD radio does not work with the version of firmware I have, also intermittent MDI issues where I have to disconnect/reconnect the MDI device (ipod, or usb hard drive).
    Will this version fix the MDI issues and enable hdradio on an RNS510 ?

    I can live with it since the car averages 53mpg and that’s averaging 80mph 2krpms 6th gear. wow.

    It would be great if everything works.

  • justin

    Hi
    I have the 7L6 035 680 B, hw03 3180. Can I install this update or not? What is the latest FW available for this unit?

  • gando_salo

    Hi there.
    I am having a hard time understanding what the latest version of my RNS 510 unit will support…

    Here is my unit Details..

    Part Number 1T00 35680D
    HW Version H70
    SW Version 4120

    I want the latest firmware update for this and I seem to be having a hard time figuring out which one it is…

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

  • I upgraded my firmware to 3810 from 2720 and now the skip forwards and backwards and mute button on the steering wheel don’t work – right hand drive as I live in the UK. It’s a Golf 2009 and the unit is 1T0 035 680 C. The upgrade is fine otherwise. Can anyone shed any light? Many thanks.

  • Dick

    Hello you have the link for download firmware seat rns 510, 0996, 1024 or 1036? thanks you

  • Slava

    Confirm. It doesn’t work on my RNS510H. Error

  • Peren

    Trying to figure out if it will work on my cc 2013, H71 sw5269

  • Nilesh Parmar

    would love to see a skip to here on the timeline of a cd/mp3 etc on one of these updates. Who issues these updates to the RNS510 originally?

  • The Beast

    Is this the same firmware as 5274 but just for different hardware versions of RNS 510?
    I loaded 5274 without any problems, but with 6276 it sees it as a new SWL disk and starts the install but then when it goes to load the SWL image it returns an ‘SWL Error’.
    I used the first link to download the file and burned onto Verbatim DVD @ 2.4x, exactly the same as I did for 5274.
    I’ll try the 2nd download link and see if that makes any difference, but I’m thinking this version may only be for higher hardware versions of the RNS?

  • The Beast

    OK, so I tried the same with the files from Download Link 2, same result, so unless anyone knows otherwise I’m saying that 6276 does not work with my unit.

    HW-Version = H41
    SW – Version = 5274
