About the iDatalink KIT-VW1 Dash and Wiring Kit

Better sound for your VW

The iDatalink KIT-VW1 factory system adapter (along with the Maestro ADS-MRR or ADS-MRR2 module, sold separately) lets you install and connect an iDatalink-ready double-DIN (4" tall) car stereo with a 7" screen or a Pioneer modular radio with its 9" screen in your Volkswagen. With your iDatalink-ready car stereo, you'll retain your steering wheel audio controls, along with the on-screen climate controls and factory menus. You can also set up gauges on your new car stereo's touchscreen to check engine performance and display other vehicle information. The module retains all your factory backup cameras (except 360° camera). The kit includes bezels for 7" iDatalink-compatible radios and 9" Pioneer modular radios; the bezels' finish matches your factory dash.

The wiring harness features an in-line head-unit connector harness, which will plug into iDatalink's new "Head-unit direct" harnesses for select radio brands. If you're installing a radio that doesn't work with a "Head-unit direct" harness, you simply cut off the plug and connect the wires to the harness included with your new radio.

Note: This kit is designed for select 2018-up Volkswagen vehicles without factory amplification.

Features

Volkswagen Integration Kit: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-VW1 consists of an integration dash kit and vehicle harness designed specifically for select 2018-2023 Volkswagen vehicles. In combination with the iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 Car Radio Replacement Interface module (sold separately) the KIT-VW1 lets you replace the factory radio of your 2018-2023 Volkswagen with a compatible Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Sony, or Pioneer aftermarket head unit equipped with an iDatalink Serial Port.

  • Radio Compatibility: Click here for a list of compatible aftermarket radios with an iDatalink Serial Port.

Note: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-VW1 requires the purchase of the iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 (sold separately) and the download of a vehicle specific firmware from iDatalink's Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac).

If connecting to an aftermarket head unit that does not support an iDatalink Direct T-Harness, you'll need to cut off and remove the 20-pin black connector from the KIT-VW1 harness and splice each wire directly to the aftermarket radio's corresponding wire.

Flashing Module via Weblink Desktop: The iDatalink Maestro RR (ADS-MRR) will need to be loaded with correct firmware before installation. The included USB cable plugs into your computer and allows you to "flash" the Maestro RR or RR2 with the appropriate firmware to prepare it for installation. Simply download Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac) onto your computer to access the appropriate firmware. System requirements include -

  • Windows PC (10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP/2000) or Mac OS X (Mojave [10.14], HighSierra [10.13], Sierra [10.12], El-Capitan [10.11])

Retained Features: The follow factory features (if applicable) are retained when replacing your aftermarket head unit with a compatible iDatalink Serial Port head unit from Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Sony, or Pioneer using the Maestro RR or RR2 car radio replacement interface module and KIT-VW1 installation package.

  • Steering Wheel Controls: Factory steering wheel controls are retained with two function buttons and expandable radio functions.
  • Backup Camera & Park Assist: Factory backup camera is retained with dynamic parking guidelines and park assist chimes (chime speaker included); your aftermarket head unit must have a composite video rearview camera input. If you add an aftermarket front and/or side cameras (sold separately) to your iDatalink compatible head unit that is equipped with multiple camera inputs, the vehicle's factory auto camera switching feature is also retained.
  • Secondary Vehicle Display: Secondary vehicle display is retained (if factory equipped) with audio information, hands-free information, and internal navigation.

Media Module: A flush-mounted media module is included that provides one USB-A port and one USB-C port with extension cables to connect to the rear USB ports of your aftermarket head unit. The media module will support wired Apple CarPlay or wired Android Auto if your new aftermarket stereo also supports these features.
