    DAB reception RCD510

    Hi
    I have in my VW Golf RCD310 DAB Radio.
    It works very well with no problem, but only in UK.
    When I go to France, Germany ect DAB can't get any station.
    I can understood its be cos probably different DAB frequency.
    My question is: can I change that by VCDS? Or any other way?
    Thanks.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 2012 Golf Variant 1.6 TDI but you posted in the Caddy section why?

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    Post moved to the correct section as OP can't read sub forum titles.

    Thanks for reply and put my post to correct place.
    Is not about fault code.
    Radio working very well.

    Problem is with DAB frequency. I can't find any station in Germany or France. In UK is not problem.
    I know in UK DAB use slight different frequency so my question is: can I update firmware to get full DAB band? Or I need new antenna?

    I fitted a 310 DAB in my old MK6 and as far as I know it was only DAB. I'm pretty sure that they use DAB+ in France so you probably won't be able to get any reception and may have to make do with FM or MW.
    The title of your post says RCD 510 but you say 310 in your post. I'm not too sure about the 510.
    I may be totally wrong about this but if I am then someone will be along soon to give you better info.
