Hi all - I have a CC with an RNS510 satnav and the original VW (NAVTEQ) Navigation DVD for Europe West (v3). I've never managed to get the UK post-code entry working and a friend in the dealers suggested there might be an upgrade to fix this? I don't understand whether he was referring to an update to the RNS510 software and/or to the nav DVD - please can anyone advise?
The (part?) numbers printed on my DVD are:
1T0.051.859.D
A2C59511985
KW10 2008 /122072
Also, please can anyone advise whether there's a more up to date version of my map DVD ? .... or point me to where I might find out?
Thanks - Paul Kelley

V6 is the latest version, available from the usual source to purchase and download if you look hard enough.....

Thanks - tried searching for info on my unit here and one of the FAQs said: "The current version is V3 which supports 5 digit UK postal codes" .... well my DVD says v3, but I can't see how to get the UK postcodes to work. I note a later post suggested that the latest is v6 - so I'll pursue this further.
Thanks again

Ok thanks - sounds like I should be able to get an update - but, forgive my lack of knowledge, please could you give more of a clue as to what the usual source might be? I was daft enough to ask at a dealers but all they did was come up with a sales/accessories brochure that quoted the DVD at over 200 quid saying this was the only part number ref they had ..... with no reference to the map version.

Try another dealer, there is the odd one that know what the are talking about! They should also be on Ebay. Have a good Google and see what comes up, If you know anything about 'downloading' then I'm sure you might find something for a good 'price'

I'd look into and consider updating your software version as well, (if you know what version your on?) Its odd you have no postcodes at all so an update might help here.

Have upgraded firmware to 2720, works fine and a doddle to install. have v6 maps downloaded and burnt to dvd, inserted and works fine except it appears to be running from the DVD and not installed to HD, any ideas how to save it to HD?

When you insert the DVD it should give you the option to save to the HD or run nav from the DVD. If it doesnt just keep the DVD in while you are driving around and it should sort it itself out in the end.
