    1) Press start (no brake)
    2) Hold Eject + Star + Guide until system restarts
    3) Insert disk when it says it can't find the SWL image
    4) Press "OK" at software loading version screen

    Burn on a CD-R using Active ISO Burner @ 2.2x speed

    2013 Passat tdi sel dvd hack

    so here is how you make dvds play while driving. Click on this link ( http://www.robpol86.com/index.php/File:RECODE_VIM_Berto89.zip ) then click on RECODE_VIM_Berto89.zip two files will download. after the download, open the file VIM_Berto89.iso by clicking on the file that says VIM_Berto89.iso. that will open another folder that has six (6) files in the folder. take and copy these six files to a cd or dvd, and copy them at low speed. Take this cd go to your passat and with the car off put the cd/dvd into the stereo and let the cd install itself. you will be asked to confirm just agree and thats it. system will restart and now you can watch while you drive. I have a 2013 passat tdi sel north america made. it worked for me first try. thanks

    worked for me!

    just got 2010 jetta tdi couple weeks ago and thought i'd give this a try. first try i got a cd/dvd error message - but rebooted with the <> / star/moon key and it worked like a charm.

    my girl will be thrilled when she gets in the car and i have a pr0n in the dvd player ;)

    Worked great

    First two attempts didn't work. Then used Roxio burner on Win Vista PC and it worked great. Just popped CD into 510 and system rebooted a few few times, gave some status messages, a confirmation screen with an OK button, then rebooted with a success screen and ejected CD. VIM works fine, but not willing to test the 300km limit.... :)

    2013 Passat TDI Canadian version

    Thank You

    Worked for me....

    Thanks to those who contributed.... Mine worked on 1st try.

    my rns510 is the same as aerofixer.

    Just a pointer - eject the sd card if you haven't. My 1st tried didn't work, but after removing the sd card, it worked.

    Does this VIM fix work on a 2014 Passat TDI SEL?

    I have the 2014 VW Passat TDI SEL and am looking to enable the VIM feature. Does this fix work on my model?

    I have a 2014 Passat TDI SEL Premium. I have tried this VIM burn with 3 DVD-R's and 4 CD-R's and have used 3 different ISO burning programs. Free ISO Burner, free Deep Burner and ImgBurn. I have used the slowest speed available on all 3 of these burners. I am able to install the software and get the ok prompt and the green success. The system reboots to normal. I load a DVD and it will shut down at 5mph. Any ideas?

    If anyone needs the firmware updates I have the files. If someone wants to host them I can upload the files or work something out.

    The VIM file on here is the same as the one I have. I have firmware and v6 maps though.

    Hmm...tried it on my 2014 Passat and it didn't work. I received a Downgrade Error, and mention that the target CD contains software that's newer than the upgrade.

    This is on HW-Version H22, SW-Version 5374.

    If anyone else has any luck with the newer versions, please let me know!

    Thanks,
    D

    Edit: I do see where the version is specified in the files to be burnt; I'm just too chicken to make the edit and try it on my own without confirmation that it would be that simple.

    I just wanted to put my experience on here.

    This is the steps I did on my computer. PC
    ~ downloaded the zip file.
    ~ downloaded Active ISO Burner (free, just google search and download)
    ~ opened zip file and moved the VIM_Berto89.iso to my documents.
    ~ I opened my Active ISO Burner and searched the document in the search box.
    ~ changed the write speed to 2x
    ~ put in a Sony CD-R and hit burn
    ~It popped out when it was done.

    This is the steps I did in my car.
    ~ I did not turn on the engine or the radio.
    ~I just inserted the CD-R into the player.
    ~It turned on showing the Welcome screen then it switched to black and started the update.
    ~It did the update in 2 cycles.
    ~On the first cycle that is when you will get the hit OK to continue with update.
    ~I hit OK.
    ~It started the downloading.
    ~When it is done it will say update successful.
    ~The player will then eject the CD-R.
    ~I started my car and put a DVD in and went for a ride and it never shut the DVD off. I got up on the interstate to really test it out and I had no problems.

    Now, I did try this several times using different CD-R brands and ISO Burners and NONE of them worked for me. I hope this is helpful.
    WHAT DID WORK: Sony CD-R and Active ISO Burner

    I just bought my 2009 VW EOS LUX this week.

    So I'm a new Jetta owner, I have a 2012 Jetta SEL and I was wondering if this would work on my car. I've watched a lot of videos of people doing the hack but all of the videos have a different screen setup with two extra butons that I dont have on my car and I was wondering if it will still work if I try it on mine.

    What buttons are you referring to? I didn't press any buttons in my car.

    You don't have the RNS510 unless you bought the car in Europe as it was never optional on a 2012 Jetta in North America.
