Jap Radio Coding to NZ (A1)
« on: July 22, 2019, 10:40:54 am »
Hi,

I've just got a 2012 A1 Jap Import fitted with the 3GP MMI and I would like to sort out the radio band range and looking for some advice. From I can gather,unlike some 3GP systems, the one in the A1 doesn't need a hardware change. However I am unable to find any information on exactly what is changed. Would anyone be able the help?  Is this done via:

1) VCDS coding of the Radio module?
2) EPROM modification of the Radio module?
3) Firmware update to change of region of the MMI ?
4) Some combination of the above?

Any pointers would be welcome.

Cheers

Its a combo of all three - the unit is a RMC which has the same look as the MMI but is all contained as one single unit - like the Q3.

Youd have to flash the eeprom with the right language file, then change the internal region to Australia. Then install new firmware and maps - then finally get the maps activated remotely.
