RNS315 Navigation System Overview

The RNS315 is the Mid-level Audio system from Volkswagen which offers plenty of features at a budget friendly price. This system was introduced in 2011 in most Volkswagen models such as the GTI, Jetta and Tiguan as the premium Navigation System, replacing the RNS510 for those models.

The RNS315 is a fan favorite, due to the following features:

  • 5″ Touchscreen
  • Turn by turn GPS Navigation
  • Ability to display Navigation info on Instrument Cluster (White Highline Clusters ONLY)
  • SD Card Music Playback
  • 1 Disc CD Slot
  • Sirius Satellite Radio Tuner Built In
  • Rearview Backup Camera Compatible (VCDS Required to activate)
  • Bluetooth Module Built In for A2DP Playback and Cell Phone Control
  • AM/FM Radio
  • MDI Music Playback
  • 3.5mm Aux Input on faceplate

This radio is functional on the following Volkswagen Models:

  • 2006-2014 Volkswagen GTI*
  • 2006-2009 Volkswagen Rabbit*
  • 2010-2014 Volkswagen Golf/Golf TDI
  • 2008 Volkswagen R32
  • 2012-2013 Volkswagen Golf R
  • 2010-2014 Volkswagen Passat
  • 2005.5-2014 Volkswagen Jetta/Jetta TDI*
  • 2007-2014 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • 2007-2014 Volkswagen EOS
  • 2006-2014 Volkswagen Passat
  • 2007-2014 Volkswagen CC
  • 2012-2014 Volkswagen Beetle

Note: Steering wheel controls and Instrument Cluster Data will NOT function on 2005.5-2009 vehicles (vehicles with Red Highline Display). This is due to the RNS315 using BAP communications, instead of DDP in the earlier model vehicles.
