An outside antenna is required for the operation of radio equipment in the vehicle.

Volkswagen approves the operation of radio equipment in the vehicle under the following conditions:

  • Professionally installed outside antenna.
  • Maximum transmission power 10 watts.

Optimal device coverage can only be assured when an outside antenna is properly installed.

Consult with an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility if you would like to use a radio with transmission power higher than 10 watts. Authorized Volkswagen dealers and authorized Volkswagen Service Facilities are familiar with technical possibilities for the installation of aftermarket equipment or can advise you where equipment can be professionally installed. Obey legal requirements as well as instructions and operational guidelines provided by the equipment manufacturer in the operating manuals for the radio equipment.


Loose or improperly installed radio equipment can be thrown around the passenger compartment during sudden driving or braking maneuvers or a crash and cause serious personal injuries.
  • Always install radio equipment properly and securely outside of the airbag deployment zones.


Using a radio device in the vehicle without connection to an outside antenna can exceed electromagnetic radiation thresholds. This also applies if the outside antenna is not installed properly.
  • Use a CB radio in the vehicle only with a professionally installed and connected outside antenna.
