Adaptive Cruise Control ACC for VW Golf 7

The camera calibration needs a mat, which is available at a few dealers or retrofit experts in India, but the Adaptive Cruise Radar calibration is a different ball game altogether and needs a Laser Setup for calibration. I have a feeling its only a matter of months before Volkswagen makes these tools available to their large dealers. I followed Volkswagen’s Wiring diagram to the T and took power from the fusebox from the rear, in the most appropriate way, and protected my installation with a fuse. I even identified a few convenient Earth points.

MRR radars has the SWaP/FEC license mechanism and it’s fairly impossible to retrofit it in an easy way. Hi, I’m waiting for the buttons on the steering wheel to arrive. It will work in 2017-up cars like Golf Mk7.5, Tiguan, Passat B8, Seat Leon, Skoda Octavia with Lane Assist Camera fitted on the windscreen. If you don’t have camera on your windscreen we can also retrofit that. The latest-generation navigation systems are outstanding for their simple operation and multi-functionality. The Volkswagen RNS 510 radio navigation system sets new standards…

This is indeed a wonderful add-on to your Tiguan, fluidicjoy! Golf MK7 Adaptive Cruise Control Retrofit is something I will certainly look for in my next car while I still continue to explore if I can do that for my current car (and the research hasn’t stopped!). I am very sure that you will be utilizing this feature to the fullest each time you are on that long drive, especially on dual carriageways. Dont worry too much about lane keep assists though. Thats one feature I dont use in my Lexus at all and I didnt use much in my erstwhile Infiniti either.

Old amplifier on top, new one to the bottom.You will need to remove the bumper in order to change the amplifier. There are 4 screws on each side, 2 screws holding the grill from the top and 7 screws on the bottom. Fell free to check some bumper removal video available on YouTube for example this one.

ACC system is based on Bosch radar which works thanks to the Doppler Effect and waves reflection. Would it be possible for you to put a schematic of the wiring diagram to explain how various elements of the adaptive cruise control fit together to deliver the intended function? Any details around the expenses would be immensely helpful.

There’s an eternal debate as to how useful Cruise Control in India is, considering even our highways do not have disciplined, lane traffic, with someone or the other cutting in and making us brake. I have quite a few funny memories about Cruise Control, but for the sake of keeping this thread focussed, I’ll share just one. While driving to a friend’s wedding in our Jetta a few years back, midway, the ABS-ESP Light started flashing and instantly, the Brake Pedal travel increased quite a bit.
