RCN 210 in a Skoda Laura?
Can anyone please suggest if Skoda RCN 210 system would be compatible with Laura 2013 model.
I am tired of not having bluetooth and usb connectivity on the standard Skoda swing system that came along with the car.
I have also searched for Skoda Bolero system but it again needs an add on component for bluetooth.

Oh yes! It definitely will be compatible. You'll need the CANBUS decoder to make it work. You should be able to get both on ebay or vagtune.
It needs professional installation and coding though.
Just a suggestion:
Instead of RNS 210, you could get the DNS 510 (Skoda Columbus/RNS 510 alternative, 6.5inch) or DNS 610(7inch). They may be chinese and not OEM, but they look OEM and have full OEM integration:
-Full steering wheel controls compatibility out of the box
-multi-line MFD display showing song name, artist, radio station, frequency etc
-Full OPS / IPAS integration capable of showing sensors + camera feed simultaneously
-On-screen door prompt display
-On-screen AC information display (for 2009+ models)
-Built-in Bluetooth with searchable phonebook and music streaming
-Built-in DSP module for high clarity sound exceeding OEM quality
-Full line-level audio outputs (incl. subwoofer out) for aftermarket sound system connection
-Android mirror linking function - connect your Android Smartphone and fully control it using your DNS unit's screen
-OBDII functions with optional module
-Trip recorder functions with optional module
Though this HU may seem exclusively for VW, they are also compatible with Skoda and can be changed to green button and interface theme. And unlike other aftermarket HUs, they also don't seem to have any battery drain issues.
They seem very responsive too:
Skoda Columbus costs 1lakh+. The DNS models do everything the Columbus does, but cost only about 400$(ebay).
