2004 Treg - can NAV be activated?

My 2004 V8 came with non working NAV (missing DVD I guess, or expired).
Is it worth trying to 'activate' the build in NAV? Or is my cell phone's Google MAP miles (15 years) ahead of the factory unit, and by now so outdated, slow, cumbersome etc that its not worth it.

In this context: Is a clean (OEM like) back up camera solution available for the OEM radio?

2002 Allroad 6spd, built block, 750cc, E85, 30 psi.
2003 RS6 stage 1, coil over. Bigger SMIC. HITCH.
2004 Touareg V8, air suspension, towing.
2005 Golf TDI stage 1, GTI and lowered.
2006 Passat DSG, stage 2
2006 A4 DSG, stage 2, lower, wider.

In 2004, you either had the factory radio or you had the cd nav system. That was the only option from VW.

The cd nav system would have came with the factory backup camera installed and working.

All you would need to get the nav to work would be to buy a copy of the cd that is needed for your region.

The camera should already be installed and working.

I see cd nav discs on ebay, used, in the twenty dollar range.

Excellent, thank you.
So backup camera should work without the NAV CD?
Have not managed to get it to work yet. In what setting (radio, nav, info, etc) does the radio have to be?

My original window sticker does NOT show the trailer hitch option, but car has the OEM hitch, module, etc. Could it be that in the process of installing the hitch afterwards something was changed?

It has the "Premium Plus Package" (includes, nav, xenon, convenience, air suspension, cd changer).
Also has Winter Package (heated steering, heated rear seats, ski bag).

I had a 2004. Every 2004 that shipped from the factory with nav had the backup camera. That was standard for 2004.

The only way you would not have it is if someone added the cd NAV afterwards.

If you look at the handle that opens the rear hatch, the camera is built into that handle. There is also a camera control module that plugs between the nav and the camera.

My 2004 V10 TDI did NOT have a backup cam. It was an option.

Lolz. I can't answer this, even with the 2004 brochure.

Perhaps some did not have a camera. Look at the rear deck handle. That should settle the issue for each vehicle.

You might want to look for an android direct fit radio for the Touareg 2004/2005.


clubtouareg.com/forums/f90/new-android-6-0-aftermarket-navigation-radio-for-touareg

Be sure you get the 2004/2005 version. You will find the more common version only works to replace the DVD Nav. But, there should be a few of the older one's that would work on the CD Nav cars.

Those will use a standard aftermarket backup camera. If you want it to look factory, some of the sellers used to have a replacement rear deck handle.

Who has installed Android radios in the Touareg, replacing the factory unit?
Feedback/experience?
What units (link/source, make/model)?

PLUG AND PLAY a must (not messing with wiring, etc).
