#133 of 172 Bluetooth??

The dealer told me that there is no VW handsfree unit for an 09 Jetta that is compatible with the NAV system and a non-MFSW.

Volk-L will work but it will be very limited. The other option is the Skoda/9W3 unit but you must have the MFSW in order to have full functionality. Without the MFSW you won't be able to do voice dialing or send and recieve calls. The MFSW is an expensive retrofit though. Same with the Bluetooth. The good modules cost a lot of money.
#135 of 172 Removing 2005 factory radio
Apr 25, 2009 (4:27 pm)
I have done some research on installing an iPod adapter kit for 05 New Jetta. I also bought the so called "radio keys" off of eBay, but my radio does not have the small slots for the keys to go into.
Hoiw do I remove my radio without having to remove any of the dash panels?

Thanks. A few questions. What is MDI? A cable or interface spec? Any idea of the price of an RCD-510(Premium 8)? I've seen the Bluetooth module for the RCD-510 or RNS-510 for up to $740 on ebay. Seems rather steep for a bluetooth module. I suspect the MDI Ipod cable is also expensive. Would I have to upgrade my dash? I have an 09 Jetta sedan, the MFD is red.

The MDI is the new interface adapter for USB and iPods. It will do aux-in if you buy a cable. The cable isn't that expensive. The MDI iPod cable isn't that expensive. For 2010 VW is replacing the stock iPod adapter with an MDI package. It also includes the iPod cable. The iPod cable for the MDI can be had for $40. I have no idea how much a Premium VIII will cost. I suspect this market to get saturated once people start swapping out their headunits for aftermarket ones. There might be some sellers that will sell them though don't know when. The RCD-510 is coming out this fall. The MDI costs about $257 at 1stvwparts part number 5N0 035 341 B and the harness you can get at kufatec.com. Order the Media-In harness. It will replace your armrest iPod adapter though. Part number 5N0 035 341 B does include the USB cable but you don't want to use it for iPods though since it won't work.
I've seen UK sellers selling the bluetooth unit for $550. This is the new D revision unit which supports A2DP aka Bluetooth Audio streaming. No dash upgrades. If you want voice dialing you'll need an multi function steering wheel which is expensive. Those retrofits are possible. The Bluetooth module and the RCD-510 will require coding. The bluetooth will need it to configure the unit. The RCD-510 will need it if you have the Premium amplified sound system. Set it as VW sound system to enable that. Of course the MFSW will require it if you want to retrofit it. If your car has it then you don't have to do it. No cluster upgrades though.
Finally you'll need a Sirius extender so you can use the factory sirius antenna with the RCD-510.
A long post and analysis but informative. Hope this helps.

Part number 1Z0 035 729 D is known as the Skoda unit or the 9W3 system. 9W3 is what they are using in 2009 Jetta's with Bluetooth.

I purchased cable 000 051 446 C and I cannot get it to recognize my ipod. It is a new 160GB ipod classic and I have done everything in the NAV manual that it says to do to hook up something to the MDI connection. When I hit the media button it shows an AUX input even though there isn't one and nothing will play when you select it (obviously, since there is nothing connected to the AUX-IN connection). I tried turning the AUX input off in the settings, but that doesn't work either. It just says there is no media available. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Reboot the iPod by pressing Menu and the center button. That might get it to recognize it. Pressing the selection button also gives you access to it.
