P.S - I guess you have custom ROM (may be Cynogenmod if I'm not wrong).
Nope is the default sony rom only rooted - not a custom rom.

Can anyone please confirm whether RCD 330G has Apple CarPlay or no?
The dealers are clueless about it. Looking to buy a Vento...

Nope no carplay - iphone doesn't work, nor does it have logos of car play. Confirmed!

@reignofchaos thank you for confirming about CarPlay. I have been looking forward to buy Vento TSI - deferring my purchase in hope of an update model with LED and CarPlay.

1. When do you think will be the next update of Vento?
2. Do you think next Vento will have Apple CarPlay? - Apple's website states 2016 Polo will get CarPlay. We are already half year down. http://www.apple.com/in/ios/carplay/available-models/

Actually in international markets they already have Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. May be because they have updated HU which is MIB-2 whereas we still have MIB-1 HU.

I don't think they have any plans to upgrade their current HU, as they will be busy with Ameo.

But yes we may see facelifted Vento with LED Head Lights anytime soon. I wish they will launch it here. Because last time I asked them, they said it is for International models which are made in India and then exported(not sure if it's true). Only time will tell.

CHEERS

Hi Reignofchaos, can you confirm if the google maps app is also working when you actually start driving? For me it only worked while the car was at standstill, as soon as I start moving, the screen used to go blank saying app not available.
Please confirm

So is the mirrorlink / android auto unlocked out of the box?
The reason I ask is, I have the MIB II system in which none of the App connect features are unlocked yet.

Working for me while in motion too. Is your device rooted? This can be fixed then.

RCD 330G rear:

Attachment 1513177

RCD 510 rear:

Attachment 1513178

- It is possible to connect the camera to the unit. Just like in the Ameo:

Attachment 1513179

Attachment 1513180

- Displays the ParkPilot screen which supports 8 sensors (4 rear + 4 front) if the PDC module has canbus connections; the current Polo does not have this. In all probability the Vento and Ameo doesn't as well:

Attachment 1513181

Attachment 1513183

- The unit doesn't ask for a pin code apparently unlike the RCD 510 which does.

- This unit does not seem to send any information to the maxidot cluster.

- There are multiple vendors manufacturing this unit - Harman is one (made in Hungary), there's a Chinese vendor as well. Not sure which one goes into the Indian Polo/Ameo.

Attachment 1513182

Russian sources (as always ) : Link 1, Link 2, Link 3

Hello Gannu sir,
Can we source MIB-II unit and install it in my Vento? And as @bharat4ever is asking, can we use Apple CarPlay? As VW America website states - "with VW car-net App-connect, you can access apps from Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/Mirrorlink.

THANKS.

When I tried last I was on a rooted lollypop xperia z2. It did not work then.
Now I have upgraded to MarshMallow, but I haven't checked recently. I don't think its working has anything to do with the rooting of device, since the app blocking mechanism is built into the head unit and not phone. Either its a glitch in your head unit, or you're lucky, cause by design it should not run the apps while in motion.

Hi Guys,

From the pictures posted earlier by Gannu, it looks like the only things required to retrofit the RVC to the New Vento TSI (RCD 330G), are:
1. RVC connection plug
2. RVC itself along with connection wires

Any idea how we can source these components ?
Any estimation on the cost ?
Tried Aliexpress, but couldnt find any. All were available with the HU and not separately.

Also tried talking to VW SA, but they said that they need to physically check the part numbers in the Ameo, and they do not have the demo car yet.

Thanks

I was trying to find a work around for the same issue since I just booked a Vento TSI ( highline).
I was wondering if this would work for the current system for the requirement of a reverse camera.

I have tried researching a lot on this. From the information i can gather - while we can source and fit the MIB-2 unit - it has component protection built in which can only be removed by a VW dealer. Good luck finding a VW dealer in India who will agree to remove it :(

I am thinking of either fitting the RCD330G or a AndroidAuto/Apple CarPlay unit like Pioneer X8790BT.

I found RCD330G for around 12,000 RUPEES with shipping on aliexpress. But I don't know if it's different than Indian version or similar (just like RCD510 - in india we get BOSCH which is very costly and in china we get DELPHI which is dirt cheap).

So if someone will throw some light on this topic then it will be real helpful for us to decide.

You are right. But it's just a matter of finding the powertrain canbus and connecting can high and low.
This chap used the wires going to the instrument cluster.
