If you decide something similar and break / ruin / burn / break your car, it is your responsibility!
Clearly, therefore: WE DO NOT RESPOND FOR YOUR LOSS!

17.12.2018

The big decision was taken two months ago!
Android screen. And not only! There are agendas and filthy plans from behind! Besides the usability of using the phone via BT and music via BT and USB, it has more: After we also put a Scirocco dial (we searched it!) With a white screen, then … Optical Parking System, Park Assist (yes, to park it himself !!!) and others cheer! A … and reversing camera, of course!

So, in this way:
What we got in principle!

Can Bus Decoder, to prevent the battery from emptying. Though … in my case it was not necessary, I think, since I have a very new Can Gateway. However, why not!
An interesting correction, here by my friend Giannis D., which pointed out that the decoder does not only do this, but also converts all the communications between the car and the radio. And what are they? Handling from the buttons on the steering wheel, vehicle information (see Vehicle screen, below and others). And of course, it controls when “the key goes out of the machine” and turns off the device completely so it does not pull current (what I mentioned above as its only function).
So … We’re extinguishing the old RCD 300.
