#1 of 24 Navigation and Sunroof Question
Mar 01, 2009 (6:03 am)
Just got the SE AWD w/Nav & Panoramic Sunroof and I have 2 quick questions that may be dumb but my dealer service department seems clueless and told me to come back Monday when the main service part guy is there.
1. When you get the Nav system does that delete the 6 disc in dash changer that it states mine should have on the invoice sticker? I've only been able to load 1 CD and I nor the dealership could find a external cd changer in the center console, glove box or truck.
2. Does the sunroof open only half way and not 100% all the way over the heads of the back seat passengers? In the brochure it shows a completely open roof but mine only opens halfway.
Thanks A Bunch For Any/All Feedback!

Yes it does delete the CD changer but thats ok. The RNS-510 supports MP3 discs by SD card, DVD, or CD. Just make a DVD full of your favorite MP3's and you pretty much don't need a changer. There is also a Media In port in the armrest that supports USB, and iPod devices. iPod requires part number 000 051 446 C which is the proprietary Media-In iPod cable. The RNS-510 only supports up to 2 GB in SD cards but those are real cheap. The RNS-510 is the nav system in the 09 Tiguan.

Thank you for your helpful info. I figured that was the case but wasn't sure. Have a "line-in" cable for my IPod Touch right now, but I want to get the one you mentioned as the one I have doesn't let you control the IPod from the steering wheel or on the Nav screen. Now half of my mystery is solved. I think the sunroof is only partial opening too.

You can get the iPod cable at your local dealers parts department. Just use the part number I have given you. It's about $40 to $55 though people are getting it for around $45. Not something you can get at best buy.

Part number 000 051 446 C does enable full iPod integration. It shows the nav's interpretation of the iPod interface. It works great btw. Much cheaper than so called iPod adapters yet it's just a simple cable. I guess the Media-In has the iPod hardware and the cable translates the iPod dock connector to it's format. It even shows song information as well.

Thank you very much. I'll call my dealer tomorrow to see if they have it in stock. If not I'll just have them order it for me. So far I'm loving the drive of my Tiguan. Yay for 4Motion!

Usually they have to order it but some dealers do stock them. It doesn't take them very long since it's in a US warehouse somewhere.
#8 of 24 6 CD changer

I just bought a used Tiguan SEL and it had a 6 CD changer in the center console. So there must be one available.

You can get the MDI if you have a CD changer. If it's a Nav model then you don't get it. Some models might have had the CD changer instead of the Media-In. There is a retrofit version of the MDI/Media-In that works real well. It does work with a CD changer. No extra cables but it costs about $250 plus the cost of the cables. The iPod cable is the most expensive. It's about $35 to $50. You must use the iPod cable with an iPod. Don't buy the cheaper USB cable and plug in an iPod or else it won't work. Just buy the iPod cable. The USB cable costs about $25 to $45.
