    Question Replacing RNS 510 with RCD 330+

    Hey guys,

    I just finished replacing my RNS 510 in my VW Golf with a RCD 330+ and I'm loving it! It is so much more responsive than RNS 510 and it is capable of mirrorlink It's also plug and play, which is awesome .

    But I'm having an issue connecting the OEM reverse camera. The seller provided an adapter for the RCD 330 to RGB but I've been trying to find an adapter for the rectangular SCART looking connector to a male RGB connector, but no hope so far. Does anyone know what the connector is called/where I can find an adapter for it?

    Thanks,

    ps. Hit me up if you have any questions about the RCD330+. I've done my fair share of research and I'll help you where I can.

    Apparently I'm not as good as I used to be with google. I think that this will do the trick: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/High...737938580.html

    Yep that's what you'll need.
    If the rcd330g plus had android auto it would be a really compelling option.
    It seems a major oversight but it's for the Chinese market so I guess they don't use it there?

    Is this a CarPlay compatible unit and is it a straight swap for an RNS-510? What part does OEM Bluetooth (9w7) play, if any?

    Yes it does support CarPlay. Bluetooth is integrated in the unit, no external module is required (or works with it)

    You can find the CarPlay compatible one here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Carp...791999739.html

    So the story is that there are 2 types of RCD330 plus, one is made by 'noname' and the other is made by 'desay'. The noname one is compatible with CarPlay and is running a linux OS whereas the desay one is running windows CE. But saying that, not all noname ones have CarPlay, you need to solder on extra ram and then flash it. I'm assuming that the seller from the link above has already done this. Also, the currently CarPlay firmware is buggy, it is only a beta version.

    ... I only found this out AFTER I purchased the desay one, doesn't make much of a difference as I've got an android phone. Still hurts a little bit inside.

    In regards to your question about it being a straight swap, it is! And there is no need for a separate bluetooth module. It is all included in the RCD330 plus package. Thats why I swapped out my RNS510, I wanted bluetooth and its actually cheaper for me to buy this than the 9w7.

    The general consensus seems to be that the noname verion will receive firmware updates sooner than the desay ones. So take that into account if you're thinking of purchasing one. But they are more expensive.

    I don't think that it was an oversight but yeah, the market for apple products are much higher in China. The beta version of the firmware with CarPlay was just "released" so I'm sure that it'll come soon enough.

    So my 9w7 is redundant. What about the GPS antenna, or is navigation only on the Apple CarPlay side, so uses the connected iPhone?

    Sorry, another question: is there only one front-facing USB port, or is there another one at the rear too?

    No problem, there is only a front facing one. This is what the rear looks like:
