2020 rline Tiguan active info display

Post by Pinto21 » Tue May 19, 2020 9:16 am

Hi all, hope you are all well and safe during these unprecedented times.

I purchased my new Tiguan a few months ago, and I love it so much. Too me personally, only a few other cars beat it in looks.

Anyway, to my question. The only thing I'm not too impressed with is the active info display, compared to others cars.

Im just wondering if there's anyway I can add some life to it, ie different colours or maybe new style/graphics


Much appreciated for the help

Stay safe

Not much at all can be done with the current AID i'm afraid.
You can tweak the settings via Carista/OBDEleven apps (and plugs) but I wouldn't bother investing if it was just for this purpose.

The AID theme is horrendously lacking IMHO. I bought the odbeleven dongle thingy and switched to theme number 2 in the app. Expensive for sure but I'm vain like that :D

I think there are other ways to do it, or you could find someone local who has the dongle to do it for you.

I will look to something like this after my warranty is up as I guess changing it now would invalidate it? I am almost preferring the 1st Gen AID as this has better dials in my view.

Hey guys, thank you very much for the replies. I very much agree, the first generation one is much better visually

Do you have pic to show how your set up now looks. I'm like you, I'd probably buy it for a little change to appearance

The new AID on the Tiguan sucks big time visually. I retrofitted a 5NA920791b on my 2019 r line and it’s glorious compared to the new one.

Carista can do the same for £20 (ish) - just do it all in the first free month :)

So you have done the retrofit, any pictures as i know you started a thread about this but we have not seen your hard work?
