Received mine yesterday, all fitted up last night. Perfect condition. Not sure if i got the wrong Fakra cable but i had to leave one aerial unplugged but radio reception is fine. The only downside it seems is that i have lost volume control on the steering wheel. Any ideas if this can be rectified? It's no massive problem just a little niggle. The advantages of bluetooth and phone calls easily out weigh it. Very happy!!

Hi everyone, I'm new here.. Just got the rcd330 plus. My current ride mk5 gt sport.
Just want to check. I got the same fakra cable too.. So should I get thishttps://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Antenna-Aerial-Adaptor-Single-Female-Right-Angle-Z-Fakra-to-Double-Male-Z-Fakra-/121871361750?_mwBanner=1 or use the one they supply?

Use the eBay link one, it's the exact seller I bought it from and it works fine with my RCD 330.

I installed it with one antenna. Seem to work too. Maybe radio reception won't be as strong as before

Anyone with a no name 187B version of the RCD330 can upgrade to Android Auto with firmware via USB. I've updated 2 units with my firmware and everything works fine. Anyone interested send me a PM  :smiley:

I’d certainly be interested. Please can you provide a link and some details.

This sounds great

Bumping this thread as I’ve just got my 57 plate gti and looking at the 330 plus

Can anyone clear up the RDS and confirm if the unit below has the buttons round the right way?
Would bug the hell out of me if not

That's the same one as I've got.
It will display the station names in small text below the current station you're on but won't show them in the presets.
As for buttons round the right way, do you mean the home button and app icons on the CarPlay screen? If so, then yes. Changing to different languages changes which side they are on.

Excellent thanks.
By buttons I meant the phone and setup ones. Some of the videos I’ve seen show them in th right place but have functions swapped round the other way

Ah, ok. The buttons should be in the correct place. I think ones with the buttons in the wrong place are the ‘A’ versions that have have an update/upgrade done to them.
