Hi. Thank you for the very informative thread on the HU replacement. I have also been researching about the RCD 330G for my Laura. Had a few queries regarding the same.

1. What is the difference between RCD 330G plus and 340G? Came across a few sellers who sell 330G plus at 9.5k and 340g at 15k. Is there a major difference between the two?

2. Shalinder chaoudhary on youtube is also selling RCD units. Are the models that he is selling NOname ones or DESAY?

3. Also i am unable to see the fascia for the HU for the laura on aliexpress. What spec is it called? Since both are similar to look at. Can i order the same that you have ordered for Yeti?
4. Have you faced any issues like the interface hanging or RAM errors with the unit?

1. Label on top of my unit says 340g. I think 330g and 340g are the same - both 187B. There are newer ones 187C (for OEM russian market) and 187E (for OEM Indian Market) but most are saying there isn't much variation in hardware between 187 B, C and E. I would suggest set your priority and pick a headunit from a good seller and it won't go wrong. If you are on a tight budget, go for red backlit and desay 187B for maximum bang for the bucks. Only thing you will lose is Android Auto.

2. Shalinder's RCD units are the same as those in AliExpress from I gathered. You can source it from him and might be cheaper and faster. In fact, with the recent 44% custom duty charge, unless your seller mark down the price to 10-20 USD on declaration form, you will land up paying from Rs 1K to 4K. And mind you, if the declaration is very low, and the parcel is send via DHL or aramex, EMS etc, they will definitely open the package to inspect and duty will be levied irrespective of the value declared. My parcel was send through EMS with declared value of 60 USD, but still it was opened by custom. You can easily verify from the 'India Post' tape that is applied to the parcel.

3. Yeti's fascia won't fit. See aliexpress listings - https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...octavia+fascia

Couldn't edit the previous one.

1) This is what I gathered:
RCD340g = Carplay + Android Auto
RCD330g = Carplay only

...
...

4) Its smooth sailing for me so far, no freezing/hanging. Startup time is very fast, 2-3 seconds at most. May be its because of the linux OS. Can't say about the cheaper ones with win CE OS.

Upgrade to RCD330g plus from RCD510


Nice Upgrade. I have the RCD 510 system in my 2015 Jetta and looking to upgrade to get android auto and Mirrorlink facility. I have a few queries.

1. The OE system automatically shows OPS information on staring the car without actually switching on the HU. Does this unit does the same or it had to be switched ON for OPS or RVC information??

2. The OPS and RVC output on the display have to be manually selected or there is a default selection. Kindly elaborate. Can they be shown together? I think not but just asking.

3. Which is more functional : Android Auto or Mirrorlink. I use Galaxy S7. Can one play music through Saavn or such apps on phone When connected by USB cable.

4. Does the voice commands of Google assistance work?

5. When connected through USB cable does the HU also charges the phone?

6. RCD 510 has a media device connector in glove box. Will that become non functional. I understand that you have a different car, but if you have come across any information.

7. Tried the link for Sony CCD RVC you provided. There are four different models 8011, 8012, and some else in the same link/ page. Which one is the right one?

8. On installing the RVC the boot handle will be replaced by RVC cum handle. Is this handle of good quality?

Number of queries. Please answer

1) Yes, retain the same behavior i.e., irrespective of the system is ON or OFF, the OPS and Camera are shown when reversing. When OFF, the clock is shown. But I think in the background it is active when ignition is ON.

2) RVC takes preference when reversing. OPS sound is available with RVC too. To switch to OPS mode, there is a button on the top. And vice versa.

3) I had tried only Android Auto. And yes, you can play audio or make call when on Nav mode (in both carplay and AA). Have not tried MirrorLink.

4) Yes.

5) Yes.

6) Yes, any additional modules in your RCD510 (bluetooth, media unit etc) are not supported in RCD330g plus. It already supports both and more on the headunit itself.

7) 8012 sony is the one I got for Yeti. For Jetta, you might want to contact the seller if one of the given is compatible.

8) Yes, it is sturdy build and good finish, even better than OEM ones.

To ease the connectivity of the headunit to my iPhone and avoid cluttering the dashboard, got short lightning cable (30 cm) from Amazon (Link). For aesthetic and practical purposes, I got the 90 degree bend ones (Black) at both ends. It helps to tidy up the console to great extend.

I also ordered a short Aux cable (45 cm) with 90 degree bend for seamless integration to the headunit. Here is the link:

Swing Radio has same Quadlock connector as with RCD330g plus. Your Yeti already comes with this connector, so no need to purchase a quadlock converter. So, it's simple plug n play. Refer to this thread where a TBHP member had upgraded Swing to RCD330 https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-e...head-unit.html (Skoda Yeti: Upgraded to the RCD330 Plus head-unit)

As for fascia, try this one from another seller - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-...e-b6355061fa4b

The important point of fascia is it should have 22 cm width at top, 21 cm width at bottom and 13 cm height for the cut out section.

Finally took the plunge. Went ahead via the Shalinder route and got the RCD340G plus. Thank you for the advice. Made a thread here (Skoda Laura - Upgrading the Swing head unit to RCD 340G Plus).
