Re: My Vento's super RCD340G headunit : Perspectives of an owner

Hi, I am driving my Laura from 2011 and am planning for Upgrading the stock ICE to Pioneer 5290. I need advise on the components and amp. I am not a great bass lover. Also suggestions of any good shop in Hyderabad is appreciated.
Thanks

Hi JoshMachine, That's an awesome upgrade. I am new to this forum and landed up to this page during my search for an upgrade. I am interested in this system as well. Could it be possible to get the details from where you sourced this unit. I have a 2013 Vento and may need a canbus adapter to make it work.

Tried to send a message to you (for the dealer details) but got the message the you have specified not to receive mails.
IIRC, the 2013 Vento (being a pre-facelift model) will require the canbus.

Hi JoshMachine, Thank you for the response. Being new to the forum I believe this option hasn't been enabled yet. Is there an alternative way to share the information.

Hello JoshMachine - Would you be able to confirm if my Vento 1.6 Highline from 2011 would be able to support the RCD 340?

Hi, not entirely sure of the 2011 set-up. However, from what I have seen of other pre-2015 models, yours will require the canbus adapter if you want to use the RCD 340.

Hi, you may want to try contacting the person mentioned above couple of posts.
Not sure if he is still in Pune. He is quite responsive though and can possibly arrange to ship to you. Please contact him.

Re: My Vento's super RCD340G headunit : Perspectives of an owner

Hi Folks,
Needed some help. Is the RCD attached below Genuine. This ones available in Kochi with a supposedly 2 year warranty. There are lot of discrepancies regarding the 6 button RCD 340 - online. Would'nt want to waste 28K on a fake unit.

Also, Is there a contact in Pune-Mumbai who is selling RCDs in the current moment. All the help is appreciated. Thanks!

I believe these are available from VW directly at a similar price. Would just be better to get it from there as you are right, there are a lot of variations on the market.

I think itís a no brainer, honestly. Installing the 340G Plus in my Vento was the best decision Iíve made as far as making my driving experience better is concerned. The fact that these units are Compatible with all Polo based cars is amazing.

I had a question for you though - Have you tried using apple carplay? In my experience, using Apple carplay feels slightly smoother when I compare it to android auto. Does this depend on the phoneís processing power or is it just another case of Appleís hardware+software integration?

For reference - I use Apple carplay regularly on my iPhone 7 Plus. And Iíve tried android auto using a oneplus 6T .
Any contact of dealer of VW accessories esp. rcd 340g?
