Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual / Communication / External Multimedia Device Interface -R215-

General Information

Analog audio (via the AUX-IN input) and digital audio (via the USB or iPod input) can be played on the radio or radio navigation system via the External Multimedia Device Interface -R215-. Devices connected to the USB and iPod connection can also be controlled through the radio or radio navigation system. ID3 TAGs and titles are also displayed on the radio or radio navigation system display.

Note

Since the capability to display the ID3 tags and titles on the radio or radio/navigation system display depends on the "quality" of the audio files being use, always refer to the radio or radio/navigation system see Owner's Manual along with the MP3 player or iPod see Owner's Manual.

The External Multimedia Device Interface -R215- provides an audio input (AUX-IN), a USB input and an iPod connection (supply, signal and audio-in) as an interface. A specific adapter cable is used to connect the mobile device to the USB or iPod interface on the External Multimedia Device Interface -R215-. There is an integrated storage space for the mobile device in the External Multimedia Device Interface -R125-. It can also charge the device via the USB or iPod connection.

Note

The External Multimedia Device Interface -R215- can also be installed separately if there is no 1DIN slot in the vehicle. The customer can access the universal interface (mitsumi socket) with a mitsumi-mitsumi extension. The mitsumi socket must be integrated in the vehicle interior to do this. The mitsumi extension wires must not be longer than 1500 mm.
