Enjoy a trouble-free drive to your destination with the RNS 310 CD-based navigation system.

The system will guide you to your destination with voice prompts and maps, using all but the last 2 digits of a UK postcode.

And there's no need to stop the music while you're following your route - the Navigation data can be copied on to the SD card so that the CD player is kept free for playing your music.

The RNS 310 radio navigation system is a true all-rounder, combining a cutting edge radio system with precise navigational support. And, thanks to its intuitive 5-inch touchscreen, it's child's play to use. Along with its easy to understand maps, the system has many practical features to help you reach your destination with the minimum of stress. Two operating concepts:

Using the RNS 310 could not be easier: the high-resolution, touch-sensitive colour display can be operated either in touchscreen mode or with buttons. The turn-push button concept allows you to use the system safely when driving while the touchscreen provides quick access when you are stationary. The flexible processor generates excellent graphics, which means you will always be able to see what's going on. 3D Navigation:

With the RNS 310, taking the right road is part of the package. This is guaranteed by the digital card material supplied with the radio navigation system, which displays the driver's home country in detail as well as all major routes in the rest of Europe. The clear 3D or bird's-eye view and the automatic zoom-in and zoom-out features for making turns always help you find your way. Thanks to the practical SD card feature, the contents of several navigation CDs for different countries can be saved, allowing you to drive with confidence even to destinations outside your own country.

With the RNS 310, you can do much more than just listen to the radio: you can also play CDs and even connect your MP3 player – thanks to the practical AUX-IN socket. In addition, the SD card slot allows you to play back additional navigational material or audio files saved on an SD card in MP3 or WMA format. Or how about listening to an audio book next time you're on a long journey? 24 of your favorite station:

The RNS 310 includes a radio with two tuners and two FM antennae that give you excellent reception; you can also store up to 24 of these stations on the radio for faster access. Thanks to the TMC (traffic message channel), you receive up-to-date traffic information – either depicted on the map or in a list. If you wish, the RNS 310 can even automatically suggest an alternative route to help you avoid annoying tailbacks. A multitude of options:

The RNS 310 is a complete package as it stands but if you want, it can do even more: it can be used with the mobile phone adapter set or for the optical parking system (OPS) for instance. Information on the Climatronic air conditioning system can also be shown on the system's touchscreen while an iPod or USB stick can also be used through the MEDIA-IN feature, making the RNS 310 your Volkswagen's central display and control unit.
