VW RNS-510 Navigation System

VW RNS-510 Navigation System

The RNS-510 is Volkswagen’s flagship navigation unit. It has an FM/AM tuner, SD card slot and a built in CD/DVD drive. It can be used as an integrated controller for an iPod or iPhone using the MDI or a Bluetooth telephone interface.

All the RNS-510s we install have 7 digit postcode entry, making address input faster and navigation to your destination more accurate. In addition our maps include a safety and speed camera database displaying their locations. The RNS-510 has a large database of points of interests, finding, say, the nearest petrol station quick and easy.

It has a built in 30 GB hard disk drive that is used to store maps. 18.6GB is free and available for you to store your music in MP3 format. Music can be transferred from and sd card or a cd with MP3 music.

Pressing the phone button will display the Bluetooth telephone screen. When installed the RNS-510 will act as the controller for the Bluetooth interface. Along with the controls on your steering wheel, the Bluetooth interface makes receiving and making calls simple and safe.

The single optical drive will play audio CDs and CDs in mp3 format. It is also capable of playing DVD movies.
