I've got a loan of a VAG.COM cable so need to return it and wondered if there was anything worthwhile I should code while I still have the lead?

What I've done so far is:
Rear view camera re-coded
Buttons on MFSW
Nav directions on MFD (awesome feature)
Audio now back on MFD
Alarm chirp when locking doors
Changed colour of RNS510
Emergency brake warning (although couldn't get it to work no matter how hard I slammed the brakes on. Maybe not a UK setting?)
Auto Closing Windows via Rain Light Sensor
Voice control (although not installed the mic yet)
Got rid of KPH and have the temperature there instead
Have a large digital MPH in the MFD

Dial staging

VCDS Version 912 beta
Select under 17 Instruments - 10 adaption - Staging and activate.

according to vortex seems to only work only on GTI's built on or after 12/09




2012 Golf R, APR STAGE 2+, BCS power valve TB exhaust, loba HPFP, evoms intake, Rising blue, 19" Talladegas -BMW M2

Thats the name, dial staging. thanks.

Is that right about the date ? I'm sure I've seen a video of it working on someones GTI on youtube and that was before 12/09.

If the Inst Cluster is the 'D' revision, it'll work.
I set mine last week.

Also: close sunroof from keyfob/rain sensor
Memory function of drivers heated seat activated.

Buttons on MFSW

The buttons had stopped working since I upgraded to the RNS510 that's all.

Staging didn't work for me but then I don't have a GTI. It seems to be a bit hit and miss whether it works or not according to this thread

When you first fit an RNS510 without coding it, it sometimes doesn't work with the steering wheel.  

p3asa - one thing I coded that is really useful is change your settings to Rest Of World - and then you can have a HUGE digital speedo in the MFD!

Really?
Where is that setting found?
I'll be having a bit of that..

Do you scroll into it as a menu option on the MFD?
