This tale of woe will be of interest to anyone who is planning to upgrade their base model Mk7 Golf to OEM navigation. I don't see an area for ODIS-related stories, so I hope I am posting in the correct area. I drive a 2015 Golf TDi Wagen, which left the factory without navigation. The glove box unit is MIB1, so I sourced an MIB2 version to make the navigation possible. I also replaced my 5.8" screen with an 8" glass screen. Both came from LKQ, a nationwide auto breaker. Install was trouble free and I was delighted to find navigation, voice dialing and App Connect were already working. A banner on screen said Component Protection is active. So I made an appointment to visit the VW dealer to have this removed. Apparently they use ODIS, which is a dealer tool that connects the car audio system to VW via the internet. This ODIS tool matches the replacement hardware with my VIN. The dealer was happy to see me and I headed to the customer waiting area. After a long wait, the technician came through to the waiting area to deliver some bad news. He removed Component Protection but he was unable to code the new glove box unit to operate in my car. I asked what was wrong and he said VW have said I need to buy new parts. Apparently they are not allowing me to retro fit the parts from LKQ. If that is the case, then buyers beware. You could spend a lot of cash on legitimate parts and then be refused by VW. So I now wonder if there is an alternative solution. Has anyone heard of this problem before? Am I getting it wrong, maybe? Or does VW think I'm a thief dealing in stolen car audio?
