About the iDatalink HRN-RR-VW2 Interface Harness

iDatalink plus VW

iDatalink's HRN-RR-VW2 interface harness allows you to connect an iDatalink-ready car stereo in select 2016-up Volkswagen vehicles, working in conjunction with iDatalink's Maestro ADS-MRR module. Once connected, you'll retain the use of your steering wheel audio controls in these vehicles. You'll also gain the ability to assign secondary functions to your steering wheel audio controls.

iDatalink plus VW

iDatalink's HRN-RR-VW2 interface harness allows you to connect an iDatalink-ready car stereo in select 2016-up Volkswagen vehicles, working in conjunction with iDatalink's Maestro ADS-MRR module. Once connected, you'll retain the use of your steering wheel audio controls in these vehicles. You'll also gain the ability to assign secondary functions to your steering wheel audio controls.

The package includes connectors that plug in between the Maestro module, your Volkswagen's radio's wiring plugs, and your new car stereo. You'll have to solder or splice together this harness's power/ground, illumination, speaker, and navigation output wires to the corresponding wires on your aftermarket receiver's wiring harness. It also provides the navigation outputs you'll need if you're connecting a multimedia receiver.

Extra functionality 

Once the new receiver has been installed, you'll be able to set up gauges on its screen to monitor engine performance, tire pressure, and other functions. You can even send navigation information from your new receiver to the multi-function display in your VW's instrument cluster.

Installation note: The HRN-RR-VW2 harness must be used with the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR module to connect a new car stereo to your Volkswagen vehicle.

When you combine this harness with the Idatalink Maestro RR it made my install of my Kenwood DDX9705s really easy. Some wires might be a bit long just cut them to the length you need overall It's a good product. Thumbs up!

VW2 with Maestro RR - 2017 Jetta

Crutchfield customer from Arlington, TX on 1/21/2019

2017 Volkswagen Jetta

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The VW2 harness worked perfectly, no cutting required, for my 2017 VW Jetta. Along with the Maestro RR, the instructions were very clear and concise, and provided all the original functionality of the OEM VW head unit though from my Kenwood DDX-9905s. Added functionality through the iDatalink connection enhances the experience beyond what was available from VW, especially the battery voltage displayed on the Performance Gauges.

Pros: Clear direction No wire cutting

Cons: None

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fits vw harness. Provides backup cam rca, aux cable. Would love a fakra to usb adapter to keep oem usb port but can ebay it for 5 bucks. Maestro rr doesn't support mk7 gti yet but im wired up and ready for the firmware.

Pros: Good quality harness. Easier than tapping the short wires in the glovebox.

Cons: Rr not supported for my mk7 gti. Can't fully test it yet.
