This unit is totally plug and play for non-navi and non-amp vehicle.
If your vehicle come with factory navi system then it may came with factory amplifier as well. Then you can still install our unit on your vehicle, but it will not be plug and play.
You need to rewires to connect the car speakers to our unit directly to by pass the factory amplifier. The audio will output from our unit built-in amplifier. The factory amplifier will be invalid.
The shipping cost to Montenegro is about US$100.(FedEx, 2-5 working days for delivery)

Worth noting that 04-05 early Touaregs with CD based navigation had digital amps and later 05+ with DVD Navigation had analog amps.

Two very completely setups when it comes to aftermarket HU installs. Shouldn't this be clarified at all?

Just a quick review, having had this unit now for a month. I haven't gotten the rear camera wired up yet. I am impressed, that for the price, this unit does everything I want it to and looks OEM, feels solid, good responsive touchscreen, and interface. It is "plug and play", except that my shipment was missing a needed antenna cable and I had to search around to find one at a stereo shop. The instructions are minimal, and the translation of the owner's manual is very poor, to the point of useless. However, everything seems very intuitive with the exception being the ipod/iphone interface....

1) navigation is excellent, maps up to date even in rural Canada. Better than my factory audi setup in other vehicle.

2) the bluetooth works with a built-in microphone; sometimes incoming calls sound tinny, other times more clear. People on the other end report they can hear me fine but definitely sounds like I'm in the car on a speakerphone. I might look into a better microphone to put up closer to my face on the drivers' A pillar, as some others have done, for better clarity. I can't get my iphone to stream over the bluetooth, but I think that's a known problem with apple ios6, rather than the head unit.

3) the FM reception is good, even though this must be bypassing part of the diversity antenna setup. I also can get good reception on the one AM station in my area, although I don't ever listen to it. I didn't buy the TV tuner.

4) the DVD player works while in motion, handy for the kids in the back seat, hopefully I won't get a ticket while its on, not supposed to be able to watch on the screen while driving here.

5) the iphone interface is really lacking; it comes up just with an alphabetical list of songs, and it takes multiple button presses to find artists/playlists/etc.
I may try to jailbreak my phone so I can control the playback from the phone itself.

6) the sound quality overall is excellent, better than the standard stock stereo.

7) I miss the satellite radio capability, but if I really want it I suppose I can get the app on my phone and play it through the aux input.

The screen does wash out with bright sunlight or glare, and also doesn't dim at night when the cabin lights dim, but doesn't bother me. My volume controls work, that's all I use anyway on the steering wheel, I have the basic red MFD and it doesn't show anything in that, but who cares.

If you buy this, and plan to install it yourself, make sure the company sends you 4 of the VW radio removal keys, and not just 2. And, there are a whole lot of cables and hardware behind the unit that make it really challenging to get it back in locked position; mine is still sticking out 1/2 inch until I get the camera installed.

All in all, for a price less than $500, does 95% of what I would want an RNS510 to do, for about 25% of the price. Couldn't really be happier. No affiliation, just my initial impressions of what seems to be a good value unit. Also, despite lack of documentation, the customer service emails are very responsive and quick. The thing shipped from China to eastern Canada in 4 days; must be some kind of record.

Thanks for your detailed review.
1. For the camera installation, here is a photo for FYI:

2. We are sorry for the missing radio antenna adapter, we will check the parcel more carefully in future.
3. The unit can be dim automatically when you turn the headlight on at night. Please check the power harness, there is an orange cable labeled "ill", you need to connect this cable to the positive pole(+12V) of the headlight. When you turn on the headlight at night, the screen will dim.
4. OK, we will ship 4 remove keys in future.

just installed mine. Got 4 keys and yeah, it's a b*tch to stuff those cables in - I stuck the factory connector up and to the left - then it still just would NOT go in. I finally pulled the RCA connectors out of the Aux input on the back - schnick! it went in all the way. Needs 90 bends on the connectors, there wasn't room in back with the RCA connectors sticking out.
Brightness - too bright when I turn it to the lowest setting. I'm thinking a screen cover of tint, maybe red to go with the tourareg, would help.

Love the sound. It's even louder than the stock unit, which does rock. The stock cd player couldn't handle writeable cd's - this unit does. The blue tooth was easy to hook up. I was hoping for an aux. port on the front, so as to use any-old mp3 player - but I'm pretty happy with it. My wife had the stock stereo almost out before I got outside (her car, and she loves the new player). I haven't tried the rear camera yet.
instructions - I can see why they aren't car specific. I'm a former mechanic/now a telcom tech - I can figure it out, but some basics would be good to have included.
