New radio navigation system for Volkswagen Touareg

13.02.2008 / Dubai-Cairo-Wolfsburg /

The new RNS 510 radio navigation system from Volkswagen not only unites a host of multimedia functions, but it can also be combined with a “Premium” Bluetooth mobile phone preparation. Effective immediately, the RNS 510 can be ordered for the Touareg in the Middle East.

The RNS 510 from Volkswagen is easily and systematically controlled via a sensitive touch-screen display. Additional keys have also been provided to support this user-friendly concept. The new system has a high-performance processor which enables it to calculate routes extremely quickly and to display sections of a map in 16:9 format. An integrated 30 GB hard drive serves to store data for the navigation system and can also be used to save audio content (MP3 / WMA). The high-resolution display now enables maps to also be displayed in 3D, and delivers brilliant screen quality for the playback of photos and videos. In addition, the new RNS 510 can also display topographical map details, which is an especially useful feature for off-road driving.

The integrated DVD drive supports the playback of common audio formats such as MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) in addition to playing videos (only while the vehicle is parked). Audio in these formats can also be accessed via an SD card slot located on the front of the unit. An audio module with ten speakers and 4 x 20 Watts of power rounds out the high-end features of this system.

Using a mobile phone is also made easier when the RNS 510 is combined with “Premium” Bluetooth mobile telephone preparation. The device has a “Phone” button for convenient operation. Pressing this button provides direct access to the basic telephone menu. Menu functions, such as scrolling through the telephone book or directly dialing a number on the virtual 10-digit keypad, are carried out using the touch-screen display.
