With innovative gesture control, it’s easy to move around in the main menu or – with a single hand movement – to switch radio stations or songs, for example.

It has a larger, 23.4 cm (9.2 inch), TFT touchscreen for a first-rate 3D map display, and – with one USB interface, two SD car slots and Bluetooth – has fantastic connection options. It also features a CD player that even plays MP3 and WMA files, as well as DAB / FM radio reception and eight loudspeakers.

Additional highlights include that the voice-activated controls respond to place names and street names and calculate a route according to your instructions. The vehicle’s Bluetooth technology makes using the phone easier. Last but not least, the internal Flash memory has more than enough space for five years of free updates for your navigation software.

Volkswagen Golf Mk7 Airconditioner Drain Hose Incorrectly Installed until June 2013 including Audi A3 and Seat Leon

Over 300,000 Volkswagen Golf Mk7 manufactured until June 2013 may have a problem with the Air Conditioner drainage hose being installed incorrectly which leads to water accumulating in the passenger foot-well. As of September 2013 only around 50 cases of this occurring have been identified.

Condensation that collects on the evaporator is normally discharged to the outside via a small hose on the firewall.

This problem also affects the Audi A3 and Seat Leon.

Enabling static cornering lights in the Volkswagen Golf Mark VI with factory fitted fog lights

Enabling static cornering lights in the Volkswagen Golf Mark VI (Mark V is covered here) only requires a few changes via Vagcom/VCDS.

The cornering function works when your headlights are activated (either manually or via the RLS) under the following conditions

  • The indicator is activated either by holding it down or clicking it into position (not when comfort indicating)
  • The car is in P, N, D, S or Manual (not when in reverse)
  • The steering wheel is turned 85° from the straight ahead position.
  • The speed is under 50kph (once the car drops below this speed the light will activate and once it goes above this speed the light will fade off)

The fog light on the side of the car that the wheel is turned towards will light up, depending on the speed of the steering wheel the light will either fade in slowly or turn on instantly but the light will always fade out slowly.

You will need a 30 Byte Central Electronics Convenience Module (CECM) which are fitted to MY08’s models onwards.

Open Controller 9 and select Coding – 07

volkswagen_golf_mark_vi_enabling_cornering_lights_02

Select Byte 14 and bit 7 – cornering lights via front fogs active.

volkswagen_golf_mark_vi_enabling_cornering_lights_03

Select Byte 17 and bit 0 – adaptive light/cornering light variant (0=cornering light/1=adaptive light) and bit 4 – assistance driving light (auto mode)

volkswagen_golf_mark_vi_enabling_cornering_lights_04

Select “Do It!” to save the coding.

volkswagen_golf_mark_vi_enabling_cornering_lights_05

If the code is accepted select “OK”
