As you say the online guide on the VW website is rubbish, It took me a few goes, I've saved the procedure to my Onedrive ready for the next upgrade around May/June.VW have just agreed to change the screen its the media pro, only 14 days warranty left so well played VW for not wriggling.
FYI a new version 21 map update is available, I used an sd card, for people like myself who can remember having to walk to a phone box and put pennies to make a call, the advice on line is sketchy at best, instead of 2 hours it took all day.
Anybody wanting to upgrade by sd card and not 100% on procedure, feel free to ask.
Hi I will put info here in case anybody else is interested.TThat's kind of you. Please describe it. I have actually opened a "conversation".
Map updates are lifetime, not just 3 years.For the people who have had their infotainment screen replaced, I assume it's just the screen and not the hard drive, brains, etc that runs it? I was going to do a big map update (including some European countries) before my three years is up and they'll want lots of money for it.
But, I'm also getting the infotainment screen replaced under warranty and I expect by the time it's fitted the car will have had its third birthday, so no map updates. Much respect to VW, 15 days until my warranty expires and they agreed to replace infotainment screen with absolutely no quibbling for a pretty minor issue.
Map updates are here:- Default Title in typical VW software style it's a bit of a pita to do the first time until you've figured out how to do it. It's UK & most of europe. No idea why this site has decided to call the link Default Title!Excellent. I'd assumed since one of the benefits of the £70/year Guide and Inform Plus package is online map updates that I wouldn't be able to get map updates otherwise.
