RCD330 inc CarPlay and Android auto

Post by BJEISH » Fri Jan 18, 2019 12:03 am

Currently own a 2010 VW Polo but looking to change to a 12 plate mark 6 golf that is fitted with an RCD210.

Am I correct in thinking that this is an easy plug and play straight swap?

Can anyone advise me about where I can buy one or even somewhere I could go and buy it and get it fitted etc?

I don’t want to get the wrong one off eBay and then be stuck with it.

Cheers

You want an RCD330G plus as these have both CarPlay and android auto support

Thanks for the reply.

Is the only place I can get one on eBay? I’ve seen a few but I’m confused about which one and what cables I’ll need?

I hear the noname version is the best as it can be updated is that true?

Finally can someone pls clarify if you can see station names on FM or if the unit only displays the station’s frequency.

Thanks

To avoid another questions about same thing as I had both. Desay - 187B (apple carplay only) and 187B noname. 187B desay - rock stable, but had to resolder usb port after half year of use. 187B noname - wince open platform so it lets You install own and modify existing software. Unfortunately not that stable as Desay.
You can see station names only like "Radio 1" or "Wave 105", but there is no RDS communicates.

P.S. 187A no name can take extended firmware (for Android Auto) as it is unix originally with carplay & Mirrorlink. You can upload new themes, icons, colours, apps etc
