My Sirius Receiver seems to do an update every 2 weeks and every time it does it erases most all of my presets. Is there a way to stop the RNS from updating the Sirius stations automatically? I called Sirius and they said they cannot change the signal that it was something I would have to call the automaker about. Thanks for any and all help.

Cheers,
Brandan

Mine too. I like having the presets but I am tired of setting them to have them erased. I don’t see any way to stop the updates.

This has happened 2 or 3 times in the last week. Usually it happens every few months. It is so annoying.

Yeah, our infotainment units are quite old. It shows in their functionality and various issues.

I noticed that some channels changed, however, especially the first 4 or 5. They used to be 40s on 4, 50s on 5, and now it starts with 60s. There's new pop channels in their place. There were some changes high up too, but i noticed that it wiped from memory some stations that did not change (Alternative CH 36 for example).

Yes I noticed a few of my channels stayed saved as well. But I didn't notice the actual channel number change. Just that it deleted my memory. I thought..no big deal..I will reset it. Surely it won't update often. I was wrong. Maybe its a surge of updates that will slow down.

And you are right. Not many options for customization in the Touareg infotainment. Even with Dynaudio I am surprised how little you can adjust the sound. I have more adjustability in my 2001 Mazda's stock CD player. But thats the way the Germans do ya. I am wondering if once I get my VCDS if opening the green screen allows for anymore versatility.

Its unfortunate that sirius can't flag your radio ID number to not receive updates. Sounds like it might just be one of my things. Das Auto.

I may call VW one day and see if they have any answers. Even though it’s doubtful.

I think this has been answered previously. Vw blames Sirius and it just goes back and forth. I have been dealing with for almost 2 years and it is quite aggravating. I think when it comes time to renew my contract with sirius I am not going to renew. I personally blame Sirius they are the ones doing the updates not VW!

Yea that’s why I called Sirius first. And they said they couldn’t control the signal. And that can’t be true cause they base your subscription on your radio ID. They sure can cut it from receiving signal so surely they can cut the updates from a particular ID.

Exactly! You hit the nail on the head. I enjoyed it but it time to move on. Bye bye sirius!

Yes, ongoing issue in the Touareg. Drives my wife crazy. We are having other issues with the infotainment system as well. I have another thread going about it that I will update soon.

Yes, all the time. We have 3 other vehicles with Sirius and no issues, ever. Had satellite radio for 15 years including even more vehicles, again no issues. It is a hardware deficiency with VW. I cannot blame Sirius based on my experience.

It’s weird that it will usually save a few of the presets but most are gone. I wonder what causes that? Guess it’s futile to do the presents then. Cause that satellite radio updates all the time. Constantly.

I am having the same issue with my RNS850. Satellite "Channels Updating" about every other week. It is not just German vehicles. It has also been an issue for many years.



I did want to point out that the RNS does have some adjustment that is not obvious. When I bought my '14 Treg TDI Exec, I was very disappointed with the audio quality. A quick search found the hidden adjustment with each of the Dynaudio Confidence settings: https://www.clubtouareg.com/threads/summary-of-vag-com-tweaks-for-the-touareg-t3-7p.287825/page-2#post-2044109

Seems like it’s a problem for a lot of people. Too bad there is no solution.

Didn’t your 14’ executive already have dynaudio? I was wondering if my making those changes on a already dynaudio system would make any difference.

That is what I thought also. I made the adjustments and it is now a completely different system. Sounds much better. Much crisper highs and the bass really hits now. I did mine about a year ago and have not had to make any more changes. Settings are still set.

That’s great to know man. I appreciate you telling me. I have not been super impressed with the sound. Once I get the bag I’m which will be soon I will make that change and see what I think.
