Jetta 6 ICE help

Post by fiex » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:33 pm

Hi guys!

I bought my 2012 Jetta 6 with an RCD310 (sans BT audio) which I then upgraded to an RCD510. But hating AUX cables & SD cards and the fact that it doesn't have Bluetooth, and refusing to spend ridiculous amounts just to get it to have bluetooth, I settled on one of those Chinese imports. Which ultimately is a POS. Nice features for the price, but supremely unreliable. So I've now had it. School fees paid unfortunately.

Now my question - the later facelift Jettas (2016+) comes with the Composition Colour and Composition Media, which both have bluetooth. Are these radios also still reliant on the seperate bluetooth module or has VW come to its senses and built it into the radio itself?

If it's built in, would I be able to retro-fit it to my Jetta?

THX guys!

I had a Composition Audio head unit in the Caddy when I bought it (changed to a Kenwood DDX418BT unit now) and it has built in Bluetooth and worked perfectly fine. Microphone sits on the top left of the head unit.
SD card slot, Auxiliary input (3.5mm jack) and USB port as well.

On the Composition Colour and Media, I have no idea if they use a seperate BT module or if they are built in.
