I've buy new 2GB RAM modul. Now it works with factory 512MB together. In documentarion 2GB RAM is max but that isn't true.

FSC's datasheets are mostly wrong in terms of RAM since they do not contain the technical possibilities but the maximum that available hardware can give you.
The datasheet of the V3515 was released before 2GB-modules were available, so FSC simply printed 2GB as the maximum.
The actual limit of the chipset is 4GB. Maybe the BIOS limits it to approximately 3GB but maybe 4GB will work too.

Has anyone tried to test it? 2GB SODIMM modules are really cheap at ebay in these days.

In the german amilo-forum is a thread where someone tried to upgrade his RAM but couldn't get higher than 2.5GB:

His v3515 refused to boot with 3GB. He didn't test 4GB but I guess it wouldn't be better.
