Volkswagen RCD210 Car radio

Post by Sniffingmoose » 14 Oct 2014 20:15

Hello

Just bought a new car with the RCD210 radio fitted. However to my dismay I have not been able to find out how to do a manual tune. I was just wondering if any members have experience of this with modern car radios. I wonder if its a way of stopping you tuning while driving.

On the plus side, it does seem quite sensitive.

I don't know either, but have you tried holding the tune button for a second or two? Some radios will revert to manual tuning

The right hand rotary knob may be used for manual tuning if operates like the Audi Concert (usually made by Blaupunkt & Panasonic depending on the vintage). Audi is of course owned by VW.

This video seems to confirm that is the case?

VW RCD 200 is made by Blaupunkt / Bosch based on their Ebay store. Please see:

VW RCD 210 is made by Panasonic / Matsushita.

One on Ebay shows the label:

Item # 251355501807

Thanks all for your replies.
It was simple, just turn the right hand rototary knob!
I got bogged down with all the complicated menus.
