I have a 2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL. I believe that the installed navigation is RNS-810.

Where can I find information on all the available revisions, when they were released, what was updated on each firmware, etc?

Which company controls this information? VW? Or a 3rd party?

  • great answer, how come I did not think of it before? – KingsInnerSoul Nov 14 '18 at 20:36
  • Do you really want an answer? I do know that the Volvo forum is replete with excellent info and so is the forum for the make of car I drive... – Solar Mike Nov 14 '18 at 20:54
  • I honestly do want an answer. But these old and outdated car forums are filled with spam. Also, I have searched there. But not the information I am seeking is more detailed than a specific set of someone's firmware. – KingsInnerSoul Nov 15 '18 at 2:42

Local dealership should be able to do a map update if that is what you're looking for.

Head unit also has versions and revision listed in the information section

  • looking at the dealership is a no brainer if I want to get ripped off and wait 6 hours for a mundane update like map update. – KingsInnerSoul Dec 18 '18 at 19:12

    @KingsInnerSoul I was quoted $20 CAD for a map update. I think it's just a new SD card with data – Ruslan Dec 18 '18 at 19:44
