If you try to enable “Developer mode” on the VW Discover Pro navigation with VCDS you will get the following error: “Request out of range:”

VCDS | Discover Pro | Adaptation | Developer Mode | Request out of range

This happens because VCDS uses a type 0x02 (Programming) session but this adaptation needs type 0x4F (Developer) session.


Change OPS picture with VCDS

This time a car topic: using VCDS you can change the picture that it’s shown on the navigation headunit to match your car.

In my case it’s a VW Passat Variant B7/3AA and it can be coded with VCDS:

Open Module 76 – Park Assist:

Electronics 1 | 76 - Park Assist

Then select Coding – 07 and enable Bit 4 of Byte 0 (with correct labels you can Enable "Optical Illustration active"):

Optical Illustration Active

Then goto Byte 2 and select the correct Model:

02 Model: VW Passat Variant

Now it’s correct:

VW RNS 510 Navigation Startup Pictures

When the units is booting it shows a startup logo and I wanted to replace this logo with my own picture.
