I’m after an RCD330 unit for my VW MY 2008 Golf MK5.  I would like the rear USB and wireless Apple CarPlay options.
Please advise which version to purchase and what I need to get the 8 button steering wheel controls to work. (Can I use Siri from the steering wheel controls?). Is there anything else I need to include?
Regards
Gary

Hello, first you need to install a simulator to solve your steering wheel control problem. 
You can select a unit from the following links.

The RCD 330plus has two versions, no name 187B and desay 187B. The difference between them is that no name 187B supports carplay and Android auto, desay 187B only supports carplay.
The Desay 187B has 1GB of RAM and the no name 187B has 512MB of RAM, both of which are genuine RCD330plus.
