There's no specific RNS-510 for the Japanese market. You can follow the recommendations for all RNS-510. Knowing the revision is essential, but you can find online a modified version of the firmware 5238 that works with all revisions.

I thought only D and newer versions could take 5238?  Seems to be a bit of a grey area.

I've been thinking about upgrading mine too.  How much is the official DVD from VW?
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

The forum rules don't allow to publicite the forum where you can get a good version. You can search on Google for Josi modified version.

I have a revision B unit running H04 + 1100. Is 3810 as high as I can go or can I go to 4120?

Can I just go straight up to the latest version that I can use or do I have to do several updates working my way up?

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can help me here:
I tried to update my RNS 510 recently from FW 4120 (which I think was actually incorrect for my unit) to 5269.
I am getting issues when updating and getting the following screen:

However when this happens the only thing that will get it out of the cycle is the recovery FW recommended in the 1st post on this thread.

But no disc will work now, even the 4120 one that I used back a few years ago last time it was updated.

My details are:
My part number is 1T0035680D and currently have FW 4120 on it.
I saw on here that my part number equates to HW Vehicle 0xC801, 0xCA01 or 0xCC01
But my problem is on my system info I have a HW vehicle of 0xC201.

Might that be causing any problems?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Don't know what to do next!!

Thanks very much,
N

Just wanted to say thanks to vRS Carl for the original post, my sons 510 in his Scirocco had stopped working just showing the start up screen.

Downloaded the first firm ware update and it's now working again, had a bit of a problem as it couldn't find the SWL image and locked the stereo, but we disconnected it, reconnected and re-inserted disc and is all working again.

So once again, many thanks Carl :happy2:

Hi,
I have a question about repartitioning.
I have HW6276 on my RNS510 and problems with maps. How can I check the partition sizes and is there any software that will repartition to give me more room for the maps? I have seem 6276 updates. Will this repartition?

With that firmware version you don't need to change the size of the SSD partitions. Your problem with maps is elsewhere. I have the 2019 maps installed with no issues, with standard partitions sizes.
