GTI with RCD310 has a mind of its own...
« on: October 04, 2017, 12:12:45 pm »
Long winded post sorry. And you may laugh at my expense...

I have a Mk6 GTI with the NZ New RCD310 stereo. Like this: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5461667-RCD-310-Radio

It has an issue that the service agents can't fix and is driving me mad:

I have a series of 6 stations preset on the Head unit, with FM1, Station 1 being the one I listen to the most, GeorgeFM.

Issues:
1) When I get and start the car, even though I left it on FM1/1, it defaults to PlanetFM, MoreFM or FLAVA. None of which are stored in the RCD's FM1 or FM2 band store.
>> Some have said this is Key related, however I only have 1 key.

2) If I get in and start the car, switch it to FM1/1, then put the car in reverse, change the temperature (or use any setting that involves the screen to display something other than radio) it will switch to PlanetFM, MoreFM or Flava.

3) The MFD display has a series of stations which do include a mix of stations, not all matching the RCD310's and not including all of the stations it decides I should listen to - e.g. Flava is not on the list.

What I expected was:

1) Presets on the radio stay put unless I reset them
2) They match the MFD display (allowing me to scroll using the steering wheel controls)
3) If there is a key memory, it should remember the FM1/1 by default?

Or is it simply the car is possessed.... >:D
