I have just sent a mail to Seat head Office re this issue, its not the first time that I have had issues with my vehicle (280 Cupra), and they resolved them.

You can get them for about £50 for a v5 card off ebay, but I think only the dealer can activate it (or maybe someone with vcds?)

Apparently on my model on my 2010 Leon it didn't need activation. I paid £150 though. Robbery.

satnav upgrade

How do you go about finding the version of your maps?

I just picked my car up today and would like to know before he does a check up call ;)

mine was written on the box that I was given when I bought my 2.0 TDI 184 DSG FR
I have just spoken with Fiona at Customer services v7 is now available and I was given a price of £85.83 plus VAT for version 7

Yep - and then the stealer will want about £30 to code it to the car.

Roughly £135 to update the maps is a joke.

And based on how inaccurate V6 is - there is no way they are getting £130 out of me to update the maps.

Local to me many of the roads have been reduced from 60 to 50 - over three years ago - the V6 still has them at 60 ( my tomtom with two year old maps has them correct )

World be so much better if the make were from Tom Tom, Garmin or Google. These propriety maps aren't that good at all. I have a 7 year old Garmin that is so much better. Still is nice to have one even if it is father basic
