Our take on the iDatalink HRN-RR-VW1 Interface Harness by Crutchfield's Bob Bihlmayer
iDatalink plus VW
iDatalink's HRN-RR-VW1 interface harness allows you to connect a new car stereo in select 2009-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, navigation outputs, and amplifier turn-on 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.
Extra functionality with an iDatalink-ready receiver
With an iDatalink-ready car stereo , you'll retain the use of your digital fader with your VW amplified system, along with factory Bluetooth® connectivity. You'll also be able to set up gauges on your receiver's 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-VW1 harness must be used with the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR module to connect a new car stereo to your Volkswagen vehicle.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Very helpful harness. Avoided having to cut and splice a bunch of wires. There is still one piece i do not know where to attach. I'll have to call Crutchfield and ask.
