    Default OEM Radio replacement

    Hi Guys

    I got a 2016 T6 Transporter last month.

    The Bi-turbo DSG 4motion model, but the radio in it is a bit dated on functionality.

    Spoke to an installer in the last week and almost bought a Caska D306, but the wiring was a problem as the Van had the newer wiring with the Canbus.

    So who has changed radio's and what have you fitted.

    What does your radio look like? Same shape as the amaroks?
    Not sure if it will fit but I fitted the rcd330 in my amarok.

    Has all the app connects with google maps and a rear view camera. Not sure exactly what functionality youíre looking for.

    At the price you canít beat it.

    Agreed on the RCD330, works a treat.

    Don't buy a Caska, I had endless problems and returned it after a while.

    I can really recommend this seller on aliexpress.
    Takes about 5 days for the package to get to you woth tnt couriers. If you buy the camera as well they will package together and list as electronic parts so chances are slim that youíll pay import tax.

    They have even sent me firmware updates later when I asked them.

    Baie maklik om die RCD330 self te pas. 10 min.
    Die kamera is meer werk, maar ook self doenbaar.

    The Aliexpress units are really worth the effort, they are as good as OEM.

    This is a pic of mine, been using it for 2 years already.

    Climate control info doesnít work but the steering controls do. I love the Apple CarPlay the most.

    No and it doesn't really bother me as the climate control has got its own interface... a bit redundant to have it shown all over... I never looked at it on the previous head unit in any way.

    aas per above yes steering works....
    Factory fitted pdc will also display on the unit.

    Jokes aside. One thing I would really like in my radio is auto frequency (AF).
    Do the new RCD330ís come with AF, or is there another model that comes with it?
