2. What service/method did you guys use to find your parts at salvage yards. Never got something from a salvage yard before and I'm not too sure where to start with trying to locate these parts

Thanks
It's more than just long coding and adaptations, apparently. I am still trying to establish a dialogue with Jack as well, so I'm not sure what all is involved.

As far as salvage yards, I compiled a list of more than 20 around the DFW area, none of which had parts for GTI's 2016+. OP may have better advice.

Thanks in advance.
I picked up the 3Q0035844 A from a guy on Facebook. Not sure what's different in the rev A version. This one came out of a 2017 AllTrack without the Fender system. I've got sound, but it's off and sub is producing vocals.

I'd recommend finding a unit that matches the features of your existing MIB1 as closely as possible. From my experience so far, I've learned that VCDS can only do so much before other cables/programs are required.

Hopefully I won't run into any issues on my non fender system...worst case scenario I guess it's just a matter of sourcing out another head unit.

Thanks for the reply.

Did you have any luck getting it to all work?

Making progress! Anyone have a VAS 5054A cable they'd be willing to lend/sell me?

I was talking to Don at Technical Retrofit. He mentioned I need the ODIS cable and then he can remote in and do his thing.

Is that cable the same one you're looking for? If so, where do we obtain it?

Yep, sounds like the same thing. OP mentions it as well. The whole kit is around $70, but there are so many (eBay, NewEgg, AliExpress, etc.) that I can't figure out which one I should get.

Quick update on my progress.

I picked up a MIB2 infotainment for $30 on eBay. I plugged it into my car tonight and I had audio on all 4 speakers and my Helix sub worked without an issue. Obviously, the screen is all messed up due to the resolution mismatch, but everything seems to work just fine.

Now my question is what is the component protection tied to? Is it the display or the infotainment in the glove box. If it's in the glove box, why would I be getting audio on all speakers?

My display is being delivered Monday so I'll install that on Monday and test again. I'm still waiting on the USB piece so hopefully I get that from China within the next week.

CP is tied to headunit in glovebox not the display. I do not understand why you are getting what you are getting. You may be fortunate in having an issue with CP (a good thing in this case). Normally, you would get no sound, but everything that has FeC associated with such as Carplay, etc. would work. When CP is removed, you then get sound but nothing else works until FeC's are re-installed.

Ended up getting the CP error after all. An interesting find is my NAR headunit had the ROW connector.

Thumbs up

Update: Jack to the rescue. We finished the remote session today. Now have AppConnect and Voice Operation activated and working.

Awesome. We tried this morning, but my wifi connection was too poor and I ran out of time before work. Going to try again soon once I can get a wired connection to the car.

Yeah I was worried about the same thing, so I opted to pay for a month of mobile hot spot service for my phone.
