Cheers all -- no clue how to get verified, so here goes...

I have a 2010 vw gti, sunroof pckg with rcd-510c (mute button, no hd radio) and steering wheel controls ...I already updated to a 9w7 blue tooth module ....

Recently, I purchased a RNS510 version c ....pretty much plug and play, but I have lost some steering wheel control function on the left side....volume works(up/down), but the skip track/forward/change preset buttons(left right) and the mute button(microphone) no longer work ....

It's there something in vcds I'm missing?

We did change setting to tell the canbus it's NAV unit now ...a couple other tweaks we tried ended up with no audio

Any help or guidance on what could get me full steering wheel controls back would be greatly appreciated!
PM's welcomed

Did you provide any data from the tool this forum exists to support? ;)

Cool! Did you save scan data from both of them so people can see what the difference is?

Well, you have to be a registered VCDS user. However, our records indicate that the serial number you provided when you joined this forum belongs to someone else, and so our supposition is that you're not a registered VCDS user.

well, didn't really have anything to offer yet, as my first was inquiry only .....LOOKING for support

no VCDS difference, other than the VIN itself was already coded for NAV. (which I had done on a prior install)

definitely an issue -- Mine IS 2nd hand....could be 3rd or 4th hand for all I know. As I'm sure you're well aware, these VCDS units trade hands time and time over as people leave VAG behind, sell or trade cars in, or just looking to make some extra $$$ .... Thought I was following all the proper steps and procedures to become a productive, active member and learn as I go ..... would be nice if there was a system in place to "re-boot" the ownership or registration of the product. :confused:

I'm probably not helping matters at this point .... :/
