DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

Jack did not need any info from me the other week when he did mine.
Jack did in-fact ask me for both my old and new part numbers. Of course he probably doesn't need them as he can just scan for it via the 5054 and FAZIT, but it doesn't hurt to have ready.

Also I edited my post on the previous page with some ideas for your one CarPlay, two phones issue :).

Another thing I find weird, when comparing Sirius radio to app connect volume, Sirius is at least twice as loud. Meaning when I listen to Sirius I hardly ever have the volume over 25-30%. But when I use app connect its well over 50-60% for the same volume level. on my MIB1, in the sound menu I could select each input and change the volume setting to quiet, medium, loud. On my MIB2 std I only have this option for bluetooth and aux... It seems like my app connect volume setting is on quiet but I can't find the option to change it anywhere.

anyone else notice this?

I could be wrong, but may want to check the volume on your phone/device.

when I adjust the volume through app connect it changes the volume on my phone. so if i'm on the phone it changes the volume to the phone call, if I'm streaming music it changes the media volume to the phone.

Yes. I meant you can’t adjust the volume on your device(using the device volume buttons). Once Apple carplay is connected my device volume bar is grayed out and you solely rely on the vehicles volume control... which works fine.... it is just a hell of a lot quieter than Sirius and other inputs.

Can anyone confirm if a “3Q0035844 B“ unit can be used, there seems to be quite a few popping up from Tiguan & Atlas platforms mostly 18/19 year.

I read on another post that revision A units by Delphi are very buggy ?

thanks

Can’t 100% confirm but I don’t think it would be an issue as most everything works the same. The B unit can actually accept higher version of firmware than the others can and have a slightly different UI skin

I've had my mib2 for a week now and love it to pieces. jack is great to work with as everyone says. i stayed up stupid late to get ahold of him and he didnt end up responding for around 2 hours after he started work. ended up waking up an hour or so before his shift was over and he got me in right then. an hour or two later and we were all done.


i did have one question. i opted for the 6.5 inch screen with the plans to go 8 inch at some point. if i go 8 inch, is it still just plug and play? is there component protection for the screen? do i need any additional programming? not sure if this has been addressed already, but seeing as this is post number 893, im not sure im up for reading through all 892 previous posts for this little tidbit of info..... so i apologize in advance!

Straight swap, nothing else needs to be done, no CP, no other changes required.

Is there a consensus on whether to program a mib1 amp or to just get a mib2 one?

Does anyone have the 5054 cable for sale? Id rather not spend $120 on a cable im going to use one time.

No, mib2 amp sounds slightly better but is quite expensive. Mib1 would be cheaper for nearly the same sound

I do. I got it for $80 on eBay when I did my retrofit. It's been staying in its case since then. I'll sell it for $50, plus shipping.

If you plan on staying with the Mib1 amp (fender audio) do you have to make the vagcom updates prior to installing the other two MIB2 items (screen and glovebox headunit)?

Can Jack take care of the programming on the MIB1 amp instead?
