Updated Canbus Gateway RCD330?
« on: August 01, 2020, 02:51:36 PM »
I have been told I need un updated Canbus Gateway to not get battery drain when installing a RCD330 in a 2007 gti. I have ordered a 7N0 907 530 gateway. Is this plug and play or will I need to get the gateway coded. Thanks

Is that cbus the best way or is it better to just use one of the power from the cigarette lighter type fixes that are all over the internet?

I’ve nicked power from the fuse box as per this guide for mine: https://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=37977.0

Can confirm no drain but will be getting my new gateway coded next week as a more elegant solution.
