How do we update it? Is it just a patch on an SD card and then it auto-updates or is that wishful thinking?

Go to this site.
https://webspecial.volkswagen.de/vwinfo ... s-download#/
Select your car, and then system
Unzip the Discoverycare and follow instructions.

There are other ways if you are computer savvy like Impala who does shortcuts but -
Takes a while but it gets there slowly. :D

....and I only updated mine to the June version last weekend. Bet it still doesn't have NEC on it though if there is a new version (which will make sense if you read my other Sat-Nav post) :lol:

Absolutely I do - well that's a relief if it does now show, as I tried via the NEC POI on mine (on current data) and it didn't. Job for tomorrow then - update the Sat Nav data and try again!

Well guys, I am really happy you have found the NEC. Could anyone comment as to the accuracy with speed notification in the UK and beyond.
So far I have found this to be the same load of junk as the last update with lots of roads completely wrongly stated and one particular section flicking rom 20kmh to 90kmh and then to 40 within 300 metres. Thank goodness I have the sign recon fitted.

Well at least this VW one does not have a cost. I have just updated my Mercedes "Becker" system for 89euro and it is just as bad.
In early 2019 The speed limits on national roads in Spain had a universal downgrade by 10kph (i.e where it was 100kmp down to 90kph and so on across the majority except Autovias). They (Merc) still give to the old limits so you have to mentally deduct from the display, humbug!
Considering asking for a refund on this as it is not fit for purpose. Their no responsibility clauses are really being stretched.
I am now convinced these people "buy" the data from the some chinese shop in "CON WAY" or even Rumania and Moscow on a good day! :D
I might get over it soon as some of the colours are much prettier which must be soooo important to the driver.

I do notice from time to time that the speed limit is not available but think that's because the database hasn't been updated to show my local road network since various projects have completed (mark you, some of them are 2-3 years old)
Another discrepancy that 'narks' me is that, I live at No 54 Xxxxxxxxx but the 'WE connect' App insists that I live at No 51 Xxxxxxxx and the position of the car on the Infotainment screen shows the car is outside No 58 Xxxxxxx !!!!
Not a major problem but isn't it supposed to be sophisticated enough to show me a route to my car in a strange carpark?

Your eyes deceive you @brid - the date format on the VW site is in mm-dd-yyyy format - so it's actually the update from 11th July 2019, not 7th November.

So I already had it uploaded to my SD card

Nope - not on mine - still get an error! And I do now have the latest version maps, checked this morning.

Maybe I need a new SD card, I'll try initialising one from scratch and see if that works. Either that or never go to NEC again... :lol:
