Do you have a pin diagram of the automatic climate control / exact pins to connect the canbus to?
Frankly speaking, unless you need the ACC display on the HU, you can skip this step IIRC unless you are referring to something else. Not a compulsion. And I am not sure if the Rapid's single zone ACC will work in tandem with the HU either (only the Jetta and Passat's dual zones do atleast out of the factory).

Refer to this thread. It should solve all your queries:

The canbus pins are required for the steering controls, telephony, backlighting and power management. HVAC display doesn't work with the Polo 6R and its variants i.e. the Vento/Rapid/Fabia. Not connecting these pins won't work - they have to be mandatorily connected.

Hey there!
Big fan of your DIY threads.

I ended up sourcing the canbus connections from the Auto Climate control unit.
Lights and buttons started working.
However, the volume scroller given in rapid doesn't seem to work.
Any cues for that?

Also, I saw your post where you changed the colour of UI to Red.
I've a DESAY 187b unit with Carplay and Mirrorlink.
Is there a possibility of changing the ui from red to green and VW logo to Skoda logo?

Hello, sorry to revive an old thread, but in Nov 2018 (back then i was not a team-BHP member) have installed the RCD 330G plus in my Skoda Rapid-Ambition, and have to connect the CAN+/- to HVAC system as you mentioned.
In my case I have tapped the HVAC CAN+/- with the help of Skoda technician, and the system worked fine after that. Back then team-BHP discussions on similar topic helped me a lot.

My query - How do you got the connections from the HVAC CAN for the head unit, means tapping or some other arrangement. Please, do share.
I was thinking to get ISO male connector pins and use them to get rid of the tapping done in my system, will it be recommended?

And to conclude I got in touch with Mr. shailendra too and he cheated me 3.5K for Quad-lock connector saying it will be plug and play with CAN simulator, i have recieved my RCD unit with quad-lock connector from the Ali-express seller details of which are shared with shailendra, still he insisted that i need his quad-lock connector. To say the least he is a cheat and i will recommend any member here on this forum to be careful while in business with him.

Id like to upgrade my HU to RCD330G/330G Plus as it supports carplay and carplay is all I need(No android in the family).

Though, is there any difference between RCD330G vs 340G in terms of screen quality, touch screen refresh rate and any additional features as well as support for rear view cameras?

Id like to save some money going for 330G if it offers same functionality as 340G, just without android auto.
