Offroad navigation. A further innovation of the RNS 510 is a specially developed offroad navigation system. This mode makes it possible to record up to 500 route points during a journey, even in non-digitized areas. This allows the driver to find his or her way back from offroad adventures into any desert or steppe. In edit mode, the driver can modify the route as desired.

New versions of the RNS 510 are due out April 2009. No details of any changes are available.

  4. I have a GLI 2009 , I’m looking on ebay some RNS 510 , The thing is some of them are advertised as US Version 3C0 035 684 that has Satelite Radio .

    And some of them are from Europe 1T0 035 680 B , which are cheaper . But none of the sellers know if it’s compatible with Satelite Radio.

    Do you know if all RNS 510 versions have Satelite Radio or Just the US Version ?

    Hope you can help me with these !!

  5. Hi Maverick, would the 3C0035680C be compatible with local delivered (AU) MK6’s? Also I’m not sure what the difference between the 1T0035680C and the 3C0035680C is – start/stop cars? Thanks

  6. Hello,

    Will the RNS510 Version B works in my 2010 MKVI GTI? I am going to switch to RNS510 from RCD510 this weekend.

    I need to know if the version b will work in my car.


  7. I want to use a RNS-510 unit in Latin America.
    So I want to know if I can change the AM radio tuning scale interval from 9Khz to 10KHz in the RNS-510 US version (part 3C0035684C) or I need the EU unit, part 1T0035680C ?
    My car is a Passat 2.0TDI CR European version and it came with the Premium 7 Radio, and the media device interface (MDI) option is installed.

  8. Bought a RNS 510 off Ebay! (1T0 035 680 C) Is there anyway Sirius can be used with this deck. eg: Through Aux?

  9. Ik heb een RNS 510 ‘B’ versie.
    IK heb geinstaleerd in mijn VW echter nu is het zo dat ik als ik twee dagen geen auto heb gebruikt de accu leeg getrokken is. Als ik mijn oude radio weer inbouw is het probleem niet daar.
    Nu heeft de VW dealer aangegeven dat er een aparte unit betseld moet worden welke nogal prijzig is. Klopt dit.
    En over welke onderdeel praat de VW dealer

  10. I have come across RNS 510 models 1T0 035 680 B and 1T0 035 680 BX do you know what si teh difference? and would they on a golf plus 2006 model?


  11. I own a 2014 VW CC Executive, V6 & 4Motion. It has a RNS510, 3C0035684L. It might need replacing, so I’m wondering if you have one? Thx!
