Hello EOS community, at the time I am writing this post, I would have enjoyed nearly 10 years of EOS ownership. Having clocked in excess of 106,000 miles, normal people would be looking at replacing their motor. Instead, I carry on spending more money trying to play catch up. I loved everything about the car apart from one thing that has been bugging me ever since I owned it: the iPod connection! For the past 10 years, I have had to live with the RCD 300 showing "Track 1 CD 1". How useful...not! I have lost count of members of my family or friends asking me what track they were listening to, only for me to take the iPod out of its cradle, whilst driving (not good), to simply be able to answer their question. But those days are now over. As of yesterday, I have replaced the original head unit with an all singing and dancing RNS 510. So, technically, I should be a happy bunny. Well, almost. The screen is bigger, I now have a sat nav (although I am still rather attached to my portable TomTom so the sat nav was not really essential) but when I play a CD, it is now telling me who is singing, what the name of the song is and how much is left of the track. But, guess what? I am still getting "Track 1 CD 1" when I play music stored on the iPod. This was sadly to be expected as I now have 2006 technology (in the shape of the iPod connection) talking to 2016 technology (RNS 510). First thing first: when you do that, you need to either change the can-bus or make sure your unit is modified so that the unit does not drain the car battery. Otherwise, it is a nasty surprise the next day if you need to be somewhere fast. Breakdown cover, here we come. I chose the latter. Now, to fix the lack of track details being displayed, you also need to change the iPod caddy as well as the harness. This is because VW, around 2010, have switched to a Media connection. I have just bought those two bad boys last night and they should be on their way. In theory, this should be it. I am therefore hoping to share with you the good news next week, giving an idea of what is possible or not. However, the story does not end there. Are you still awake? I did not realise when I ordered the RNS 510 head unit that some come with DAB / DAB + and some don't. Now I leave you to guess which one I have. Yep, that's right, I don't have DAB. And I am rather gutted about it. So, this is 50% of the reason for writing this post. Has any of you managed to retrofit DAB capability in a unit that clearly does not have it? As far as I can tell, a DAB amplifier and antenna aren't good enough and I fear that unless I switch my new unit for one with DAB, it is going to be an almost impossible challenge. Here is the other 50% of the reason as to why I am interested in hearing from the community. The RNS 510 comes now with voice command. What a brilliant idea. Rather than looking for buttons and touched screen, you can just talk to your radio, which is a lot safer. I have a fiskon bluetooth unit for my phone which not only worked brilliantly with my old RCD 300 but also with the new 510. Sadly, the microphone, I am told, is not compatible with the 510. So, all I can hear when I try to give some clear instructions is "Pardon? Pardon?". Again, has anyone faced this challenge before and if so, how did you resolve it? If you are still reading this, then I thank you for your kind attention.
