    it is not possible.. without making your own hardware and converting the signal form your pc to the VAG CANBUS signal used for the information

    Anyone know what type of signals...

    The car has NOT CAN-BUS
    Anyone know what type of signals there need to be ?
    Is there anyway to debugging the signal from the HU, that send RDS-info to the display ?

    I remember seeing a project called FIS Fool that let you display on the FIS if you weren't CAN.
