I have just bought a basic 2014 vw up. The dash has the hole with blanking plate and is fitted with a RCD215 stereo. I phoned VW parts dept today to order the wiring harness and bracket so that I can install the maps and more device. They told me my car is not compatible with the maps and more and the harness would not work. I told him that all the info on this forum suggests that it can be fitted, but he insisted that it wouldn’t work. I think he’s wrong, but could he be right???
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

One thing that I did to assist with getting the cut out just right...

If you cut a very rough hole that is just big enough for the electrical connection screws you can turn this part upside down (ensuring the forward/ rear orientation is correct, you can then screw this to the top of the dash using some 20mm M4 screws and then this becomes a perfectly located template.

See photos here https://photos.app.goo.gl/Q986kPWnUdnuufYA7 (sorry I didn't take a photo of this step) but you can see the outline I scribed with a hobby knife and then slowly worked towards.

Hope it's helpful!
