has it got a space on the infotainment unit that says map not available or something similar?
Weve just bought one and the dealer had lost the sat nav sd card. took a moth to get one, but they didnt realise whle they were prepping it. In the centre console there should be a usb and a sd slot. the maps are on an sd card., check if its there

I have a 2020 Smart EQ Forfour Pulse Premium and it comes with built in Satnav.

Mine also came with the maps loaded onto an SD card slot.

What does your home screen look like?

Just 3 boxes
Big box has radio
Other boxes for phone and smart connect
There's a settings menu and that's it
I'll upload a pic tonight when I'm home,
If anyone can show me there's that might help.

Android auto works fine.
But I want to be able to see vehicle info and battery flow and state of charge
And charging station locations without plugging my phone in

no sd slot in mine just usb slots
ive uploaded pic
i think they are all run from sd card on the smarts. Ours is a 69 reg 2020 model and the usb and sd is under the arm rest. but i have seen videos where it is the front centre console. My head unit is the same as SunnyEddy's. The body shape is the facelift.

Mine's the same, arrived 2 weeks ago. No sign of SatNav and no DAB option either!
you would think that satnav comes as standard , it seems they are relying on android auto or carplay for the nav but that means you have to have phone plugged in which is a pain.
theres no energy use and current flow animations on the big screen either .
very dissapointed with the infotainment system
especially as i ordered my forfour when it was old model with these features but i was upgraded for free to this model after the change over.
think i would have preffered the older style

I also have a 69 reg early 2020 model with the old infotainment system, and am frustrated it doesn’t have Car Play. Bought it Approved Used very recently. I’d swap with you if we could, Budokan!

It's good they updated it to have apple car play but why take away all the other features.
On board sat nav is pretty standard nowadays even on much less expensive cars.
