Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual / Communication / "RNS 300" Radio Navigation System

General Information

RNS 300 Radio Navigation System

Note

  • The part number for the radio/navigation is on a label located on the radio/navigation housing.
  • If radio navigation system is replaced, always activate anti-theft coding. Refer to Owner's Manual. Give the new code number to the customer.
  • If the anti-theft code is not known, you can retrieve it via the known systems. You need the identification number of the radio navigation system for retrieval. It is on a sticker attached to the side of the radio. The identification number is also stamped in the material in the side of the radio navigation system.
  • If a radio navigation system from one vehicle is to be installed in another vehicle, then always make sure that radio navigation systems of both vehicles have the same replacement part number. Otherwise navigation system will malfunction since the setting of the rotation angle sensor in radio navigation system does not match the vehicle.

Note

  • Familiarity with the function and operation of the digital sound system is needed if there are customer concerns.
  • Refer to the Owner's Manual → No.199 for additional information.
  • Anti-theft coding is equipped with protection code number. Refer to the Owner's Manual.
  • Use the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester for servicing or troubleshooting "Guided Fault Finding". Refer to → Wiring diagrams, Troubleshooting & Component locations.
  • For proper function of the navigation system, rotation angle sensor in unit must be set corresponding to installation position of unit in the vehicle. Therefore, always note the replacement part number when replacing the unit. An incorrect installation causes malfunctions in the navigation system.
  • When the battery is reconnected, check any affected system or component (radio, clock, comfort electrical connection etc.) according to the repair manual and/or the Owner's Manual.
  • If a magnetic antenna is mounted on the roof, the compass module could malfunction due to interference from the magnet or because the roof becomes magnetized. If there are concerns about an incorrect compass display, ask the customer before beginning repairs if a magnetic antenna was used.

The "RNS 300" unifies the functions of a navigation system with those of a high-value RDS vehicle radio.

In the radio navigation system double DIN housing, there are:

  • A RDS radio receiver part
  • A 5.8 inch monochrome display
  • A navigation system with GPS satellite receiver and
  • A CD drive for the audio and navigation system

The "RNS 300" radio navigation system has 4 speaker outputs.

The CD drive can read the navigation CD-ROM or also play an audio CD. Navigation operation is only available on a limited basis when an audio CD is playing.

Note

  • In addition to normal audio CDs, CDs with music files in "MP3" format can also be played. For more information. Refer to the RNS 300 Owner's Manual.
  • Music CDs with 8 cm diameter (mini-discs) cannot be played back.
  • Mix CDs (CDs that contain computer data and also music) cannot be played.

For expanding functions, there are connection options present for a CD changer as well as for a telephone system.

The window antenna is used by the radio and the roof antenna is used for navigation. There is no diversity function.
