Not sure there's any sensor at all there, mate. Just took a photo of mine with the sensor in the middle. You'll have a little square if you feel the back of the mirror, that's the auto dimming sensor but that's your lot.
It looks like you are right !!! Just a blank space there ! I wonder if aftermarket light sensor can go there to keep it all looking like from factory

I'm not sure that would be an easy job mate, if you wanted it to look factory fitted. You'd have to change the unit, additional wiring, switch etc.

Dash screen I think is an no unless your head unit is on a certain software 0515 and above I believe.
and the door card led’s are depending on your model as some are only red or white depending on driving mode (they can be changed in the infotainment settings if available)

That's my current software, can that be updated ? If yes, how (dealer etc.) and how much this is outdated ?

P.S. Sorry for attacking with so many questions, im a PD guy, first ever owned Seat and a car thats above 2010 plate 🤣

Highest officially is 0253 but check out @East Yorkshire Retrofits to get the required
software.

what year is your car? That might help with the door card lights

How come then theres 0515 if official is 0253 ? 🤣 Mine is a 16 plate mk3 still trying to figure out the way people mod new cars 😬
It depends on the hardware as well. Think of a phone that can only go to a certain operating system officially but with a few tweaks can get the newest

0516 is the newest for units on the 05xx software train .

0253 is the newest for your unit, unless we perform a modified update.

0479 is the latest we recommend for those with the 6.5" display, 0516 for the 8" display

RGB ambient lighting is fitted to facelifts only.

We can install it on prefacelifts

This is the type of sensor i have, any ideas on what it is ?
If you have automatic climate control but not auto lights and wipers, this will be a humidity sensor.

If you have auto lights & wipers but not auto climate this will be a rain and light sensor

If you have auto lights/wipers & auto climate control, this will be a rain, light & humidity sensor




Please do yourselves a favour and throw carista in the bin. We've had to restore atleast one module back to factory on over 30 cars now thanks to the one click apps breaking things they shouldn't touch at all. If you want to do things yourself, buy OBDeleven at a minimum. Atleast it keeps logs of what it's doing

Thank you! Thats helpfull, i would assume i got the humidity sensor only then. Regarding the software updates, i've read on your website that they can be completed remotely ? What would this process involve ? As i got 3.5hrs drive to your shop

We prefer people to post the glovebox infotainment unit to us. Doing it remotely consumes more of both our time and your time than necessary and increases the chance of something going wrong 🙂
