what navigation do you guys recommend????

Ive searched and search and I'm still confused! Maybe I can get a recommendation from someone who's been down this road? Also maybe something new has been developed recently that I don't know about.

Anyway I have a 06 Touareg with navigation. We all know how slow and laggy the system is so of course I want to upgrade. Basically I want something newer and faster with iPod connectivity thats plug n play and retains the MFD function and is an audio upgrade. Is this possible?

My last resort is to buy a real navigation unit and rewire the whole system but I damn sure want to avoid that!!!! Thx in advance

Always put the problem or need in the title of your thread. Then people who may be able to help can chime in and, later, others searching for help with the same problem might be able to find you thread.

I presume you have the RNS2 unit?
If so the best upgrade and to keep all function working as they should is to put in a RNS510 unit and a canbus 1.6 to 2.0 convertor then a genuine Bluetooth unit so you can stream music and fit a genuine reverse camera if you want.

Is it possible to edit the title?
Regrettably you only get 30 minutes edit time from when you start your post!

Never mind!

No Dash kit, should be a direct fit aside from any possible wiring you may need to do to make up the difference between the RNS2 and the RNS 510. They both use the same opening in the dash.

I'm using the Parrot asteroid smart head unit in my 2010 and it work really well!

I installed it using a HFVT parrot harness so no wire were cut.

It's basicly a tablet with full function in your dash. Internet, google, facebook, waze app, Igo primo navigation, emails, text msgs, text-to-speech on pretty much everything, bluetooth streaming, usb connections ect...

You just need a dashkit to install

I highly recommand it
