I have a 2013 Passat Alltrack (B7) fitted with a RNS510 unit. I want to replace it to get Android Auto functionality. I want to retain all the current on screen info – parking sensors, air con ect and have my steering wheel controls still work. Will my factory installed highline camera module still work or will I need to replace it? 
Thanks for your advice

You can replace RNS510 with your RCD330 plus. Plug and play, replace directly. If you have a Fender sound system, you need to make a note when placing an order. Every button of your multifunction steering wheel can work for RCD330 plus. Your parking radar can continue to work.
Your OEM camera cannot work directly for RCD330 plus, you have two options, install the RGB TO CVBS adapter, you can keep your original camera working. The second option is to install a new set of trunk cameras with dynamic parking lines.

After RNS510 is replaced with RCD330 plus, your MFA will no longer display song information, navigation information, and Bluetooth information.
The working speed of RCD330 PLUS is faster than RNS510, and it can always display the reverse image in time when you reverse. Your Bluetooth connection speed is faster, and the Bluetooth function is more powerful than RNS510.
You can connect to your phone via carplay and android auto. BTW. OPS and reverse image cannot be displayed on the screen at the same time. Either the reversing image or the OPS parking image is displayed.
