    Maps update

    After getting nowhere with VW Australia and my dealer, I finally had enough and contacted VW Germany to get help on how to regularly update the Maps in my car. The German contact was stunned at the lack of support I’ve had from VW Australia and my dealer.
    Turns out there is an App VW provides for Windows and Mac which will create an SD card for any region in the world. It will also let you know when an update is available. Here is the link. Enjoy

    Please, make no mistake. I'm very happy and grateful for your link.
    I've d/loaded both versions, and shall see which or what I can get working with an emulator, or an old MacBook Air.
    It appears likely the windoze version will work using the wine emulator in Linux. If this works for me, I'm happy to help others.
    Apologies if my comment/s above appeared ungrateful.

    When I run the tool it says there is no update for the discover pro gen 2 which is what is in the r.
    Looks like there is one for the discover media gen 2 however.

    Software : 0450
    Navigation database: 5G0919866AP0041 ROW 2017
    The obvious change is that the navigation voice is finally in intelligible!
    Took my GTI into the dealership yesterday on its last day of warranty to get this update installed.

    Cut a long story short the update wouldn't install on my car and their techs were baffled.

    They've written to VW in Germany for help so they can have another go next week.

    Does anybody know if this fix to the navigation voice is one we can do ourselves ?

    My Wolfsburg was built in June so you may already have the version shown above Discover PRO Gen2 is the correct device, do you already have 0065?
