Hello Ddren, I’ve heard a lot of good things about you, thanks for all you do for the volkswagen radio community 🙂 My question is, my car is a 2013 VW Passat TDI SEL. It is equipped with the Fender audio package as well as a backup camera. I would like to retain the factory backup camera and ensure a seamless installation with the Fender audio. I also have an Android phone, so I need Android auto. Which RCD330 model do I need? I\’ve read conflicting information about having to unhook the battery, code for the new radio, etc. I do have VCDS so I can recode as needed, I would like for sound quality to be similar if not better. Please get back as soon as you can, thanks for the hard work 🙂

The following two units fits VW Passat. Plug and play, no battery drain problem, if you have MFSW, every button of it can work for RCD330 plus.
If you want to keep the original camera and continue to work for RCD330 plus, you need to install an RGB to CVBS adapter. But the clarity of its reversing image is not as good as installing a new set of cameras with dynamic parking lines.
You need to note that you have a fender sound system when you place your order, and I will change the coding for you.
