I have a North American 2017 VW Golf 3Dr Manual with a Composite Media Unit (no glove box brain – all in one) similar to the one founds in the VW Rabbits.
Will the 5GD035280B work plug and play? Will it be easier to install since there will be no re-routing of cables? Will my camera work plug and play?
First of all, I can confirm that you can completely replace your original unit with 280B. If you can give me a picture of your Quadlock, I can confirm that your original camera will work for the 280B. Based on my experience, I am 95% sure that your original camera will work for the 280B. Unless the American version of golf is different from the Asian version. This is unlikely.
