Just updated both Firmware to ver 6276 and Map Data to ver 8536.

Update easily done. The Firmware took about 40 minutes and the Map Data about 60 minutes.

Be aware that the Firmware Update deletes any Saved Destinations and any Imported Personal POIs, but these are easily reinstalled.

Bit cheaper than a VW Dealership that are asking over a £100 for the DVDs.

Is v5238 an earlier version? How did you know which version to order?

Any idea what the benefits of the firmware update are?

Not sure yet. Seems to stay on DAB longer around here rather than changing to FM.
The Firmware has upgrades to the System, Radio, DAB, Navigation and System Apps.

Fortunately No.
I did have something similar when re-installing my Personal POI from an SD card. It wasn’t recognised at first. 4th attempt it worked. I’m sure the eBay seller will sort you out. Messages were answered fairly promptly during working hours. Let us know how you get on.

Rns 510 will not give you any warning of camera, only the icon on screen at camera location , so database is of limited use.

if you have a smart phone the TomTom app is great for cameras and far more dynamic than the RNS510 for traffic.
Ive just updated my RNS510, but didn't attempt to load the speed cameras in case it overrides my Personal POIs, so Ill be interested in how you get on.
