Does anyone know if the RNS-850 (specifically a 2011) model will be able to be retrofitted with VW's new "App-connect" features from the 2016+ models?

I'd sure love to be able to use my phones navigation functions, voice functions and interface on the RNS-850 vs stock.

Surely there is a way.. Same head unit!

I can't find any information on vw.com about the 2016 Touareg having App-Connect, CarPlay, or Car-Net. ?

I doubt there will be any upgrading for us here. The new sat navs use a system similar to Audi's MIB platform and not the RNS type that VW has used for a long time. So even if the new 2017 Touareg has the new app connect systems like CarPlay, it will be based on the MIB platform and not compatible with our RNS sat navs.
