2009 Jetta sportwagon TDI
I own a 2009 Jetta Sportwagon with a RNS 510 Navigation system /CD radio .
The problem I'm having Is that the navigation system isn't recognizing many addresses That The businesses have been established From 50 to 5 years .
So I spent $2000 on a navigation system that will not recognize address is that I input Into it which is a problem !! In particular The address last program in was Tony's on the Pier
210 Fisherman's wharf
Redondo beach
California 90277
My Garmin 660 Which is 8 years old, My wife's 2008 Honda civic,2010 Nissan ,2008 Lexis ,2009 Toyota Camry all of these vehicles With their own navigation systems and my portable Garmin which I keep in my Jetta now for backup all will pull up this address.
Than new Volkswagen Jetta 2010,2011,2012 with my same operating system will not pull Up this address but the 2012 with the new RNS315 Navigation system CD radio combo We'll There's also another Navigation System combo In A upscale Volkswagen with another Type of navigation system With a similar operating system as mine Which we'll pull it up also.
I've had this problem 15 to 20 times now since I've owned the this car And now pretty much fed up with it. Went to 2 different dealerships and they agreed it's a problem Called Volkswagen's customer care and they've been working on this problem for a week.Also gave me many excuses which I told them If you can't fix it refund me the money for my navigation system Or I will lemon law it .
Sorry for the long Story This is very upsetting specially when you spend $2000 for navigation system and you're running a portable navigation system on top your dash .
Anybody else with this problem if so do you still have the address that won't program into your navigation system?
Thanks for your help in advance

Coding via VCDS may also be required to change the RNS510’s amplifier settings, as well as to toggle BAP+ Communications. If you notice no sound coming from your unit after installation, the amplifier settings need to be adjusted via VCDS to let your RNS510 know if you have a 1)Dynaudio Sound System, 2) Fender Sound System or 3)No Amplified Sound System. BAP+ communications should be enabled if your cluster uses white letters (2010 and up), and disabled for vehicles with Red Instrument Clusters (2005-2010).

Navigation Data and Music Information only displays on highline Instrument Clusters (MFD+). If you are able to toggle through your instrument cluster menu to view MPG, speed, and other settings, you have a highline cluster. If your cluster is not able to toggle through menus and only fills half of the rectangular area, your vehicle has a low-line cluster. A low-line cluster is shown on the left side, while the highline cluster is displayed on the right.
