Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Retrofitting two-way radios

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

You will need an external aerial to use a two-way radio in the vehicle.

Any retrofit installation of electrical or electronic equipment in the vehicle will affect its vehicle type approval. Under certain circumstances, this could mean that you might lose the type approval for the vehicle.

Volkswagen has approved the vehicle for use with two-way radios providing the following conditions are observed:

  • Correct installation of external aerial.
  • Transmitting power of maximum 10 watts.

An external aerial is needed to give the equipment its optimal range.

Check first with a qualified workshop if you wish to use a two-way radio with a transmitting power of over 10 watts. A qualified workshop is familiar with the technical options for retrofitting. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

Please observe legislation as well as the instructions and information given in the operating manuals for radio equipment.

WARNING

If radio equipment is not secured or not properly secured in the vehicle, it could be flung though the interior during a sudden driving or braking manoeuvre, or in the event of an accident. This could cause injuries.
  • While the vehicle is in motion, always secure radio equipment properly outside the airbag deployment zone or stow them away safely.

CAUTION

If you use two-way radios in the car without an external aerial, electromagnetic radiation in the vehicle could exceed limit values. This also applies to external aerials which have not been correctly installed.
  • Two-way radios should only be used in the vehicle if an external aerial is properly connected.
