How to Update and Unlock Your Volkswagen MFD2 RN-S2 DVD System
If you have a Volkswagen car with an MFD2 RN-S2 DVD navigation system, you might be wondering how to update it and unlock some of its features. In this article, we will show you how to do that using a 2013 version of the DVD map disc.
The MFD2 RN-S2 DVD system is a multimedia device that allows you to play DVDs, CDs, MP3s, and navigate using GPS. It is compatible with various Volkswagen models, such as Golf, Passat, Touareg, Touran, and others. However, some of its functions might be locked or outdated, depending on the region and the firmware version.
To update and unlock your MFD2 RN-S2 DVD system, you will need the following:
A 2013 version of the DVD map disc for your region. You can buy it online or from a Volkswagen dealer. Make sure it is an original disc and not a copy.
A computer with a DVD burner and a software that can create ISO images.
A blank DVD-R disc.
A VAG-COM cable and software that can communicate with your car's diagnostic port.
Here are the steps to follow:
Insert the 2013 DVD map disc into your computer's DVD drive and create an ISO image of it using your software. Save it to your hard drive.
Insert the blank DVD-R disc into your computer's DVD burner and burn the ISO image onto it using your software. Make sure you use the lowest possible speed and verify the disc after burning.
Eject the burned disc from your computer and insert it into your car's MFD2 RN-S2 DVD system. Turn on the ignition and wait for the system to recognize the disc.
Press and hold the EJECT button on the system for about 10 seconds until you see a message saying "Testmode active". This will enable you to access the hidden menu of the system.
Use the arrow buttons on the system to navigate to the "Version" option and press OK. You will see the current firmware version of your system. Write it down or take a picture of it.
Use the arrow buttons again to navigate to the "Download" option and press OK. The system will start updating itself using the data from the disc. This might take several minutes. Do not turn off the ignition or eject the disc during this process.
When the update is complete, you will see a message saying "Download successful". Press OK to exit the hidden menu.
Eject the disc from the system and turn off the ignition. Wait for a few seconds and then turn on the ignition again. The system will reboot and load the new firmware.
To unlock some of the features of your system, such as video in motion, region code, speed limit display, etc., you will need to use the VAG-COM cable and software to connect to your car's diagnostic port. Follow the instructions from your software to access the coding options of your system and change them according to your preferences.
Congratulations! You have successfully updated and unlocked your Volkswagen MFD2 RN-S2 DVD system using a 2013 version of the DVD map disc. Enjoy your improved multimedia experience! 061ffe29dd
