DAB & Bluetooth Retro fit to RNS510
« on: 28 September 2013, 13:26 »

Hello, I just bought a Mk6 GTI 2011. It has the RNS510 headunit. I would like to get DAB & Bluetooth retrofitted, as my vehicle doesn't have it. I know there are extensive guides and how-to's, but does anyone know who can help me install the parts in the SW London area? Not keep to rip the interior of my car apart, as I'm a rookie with installations.

I think I have found the part for Bluetooth. Don't know about the DAB part yet.

Please let me know if you are aware of a good technician. Hey, it might even be one of you on the forums.

Pretty sure you can't have DAB on an RNS510.

You can get bolt-on options from people like Pure but nothing OEM without swapping the head unit.

ah, I thought I had read options where I needed to install the antenna. I have seen youtube clips of people putting in the bluetooth kit under the drivers seat.

I have found a bluetooth addon which I might buy. Was looking to see if they can be retrofitted. that would be my preferred choice.

Bluetooth is easy and I've done it myself (following the cracking guide on  here) and it took less than 30 minutes. Bluetooth module was put behind the AC controls, much simpler.
