RNS510 Version differences
« on: January 10, 2020, 11:06:42 PM »
I've purchased a rns510 headunit which was removed from a T5 van. I haven't received the unit yet.

The part number is 7f0 035 680 D SW: 6276.

My question is what is the difference between the above unit and 1t0 035 680 D?

Will I have any issues installing into my MK5 (I've changed my canbus to L revision)?

And finally where can I get the code for it, will those sold on eBay work?

Thank you

The main difference between them is the speed and screen quality.  They will all fit into a MK5.

Much later ones got an SSD hard disk and LED screens.  I used to have a Revision A and I could drive to the end of my road (about half a mile) before it started playing music after turning it on.  Very slooooooooooow  :grin:

Later ones also tend to have the battery drain issue solved with better firmware, or something, so no need for a newer CAN gateway.  I've left mine at Gatwick for 2 weeks and the car started no probs when I got back.  That was a revision Q with the original MK5 can gateway.
