Just say the word and the RNS 510 is at your command
Finding your way is easy with the voice-controlled RNS 510 touch-screen radio/navigation system, which also offers you the latest in multimedia entertainment. Its advanced technology lets you simply say what you want to do. So you can control the system with your voice, without having to keep pressing buttons.
Split screen with more information
You can choose to see the map in 2D, topographically, or a 3-D bird's-eye view. The large colour display always ensures excellent map reproduction. The intelligent split screen function divides the screen into map and additional information for greater clarity.
You can choose to use the voice control function for both the navigation system and in-car entertainment through the multi-function steering wheel or the head unit. So whether you want to find the quickest route to your destination, change the channel on your radio, or play your favourite CD, it's now easier than ever. Just say the word!
Identifies place names
The system identifies names of places and streets and short voice commands like "enter route guidance" and immediately begins to calculate the route. There's a wide choice of commands to choose from, depending on what you want to do from 'map' to 'postcode' and 'house number'.
For the radio, you can select the channel, frequency, bandwidth and memory list, among other commands, and select CDs, when you feel like listening to your own music. The RNS 510 offers superb sound quality with 8 speakers*, Aux-in socket so you can plug in your iPod, and can be specified with either a Multi Device Interface (MDI) or a 6 CD autochanger for hours of uninterrupted music. The integrated 30 GB hard disk offers space for your music collection - and, of course, for the navigation data. And the SD memory card system ensures a convenient exchange of data whenever you need it.
Watch films - when you've stopped
Because your Navigation Data is stored on the hard drive, this frees up the DVD drive for movies. So you can enjoy watching films on the high resolution screen with its excellent picture quality, when your car is stationary.
Note: audio will continue to play when you're on the move.
Phone calls on the move
And making phone calls on the move will become even safer and more convenient in future. With the optional Bluetooth mobile phone preparation, you can use the Phone button and touch-screen to access the telephone menu directly, scroll through the phone book, and even enter numbers on the display. (This system is only compatible with rSAP mobile telephones - please ask your local retailer for more information.)
So, wherever you want to go in your Volkswagen, and whatever you'd like to listen to on the way, the RNS 510 is waiting for your command.
* The number of speakers may vary by model
Satellite navigation updates
The satellite navigation systems installed in the Volkswagen vehicles will need updating periodically. The update process is simple and relatively quick* depending on the system fitted to your vehicle. Pop along to your local retailer and enjoy a coffee whilst we update your navigation system.
* Navigation updates are available on SD cards, DVD’s or updated via the workshop equipment. Update process and time will vary depending on the system fitted to your vehicle.
