Satnav fault code in OBD11

Probably the right decision. I did live with my second one for a couple of months till I got rid of it. You still be the central Obdeleven system not handling it correctly.

The only thing I'd say is scan, clear, reboot, scan, clear reboot etc... a few times. Full power down after 20 minutes might come into it.

There will be a lot of people with the workaround who wont know they have an SVM error since they don't scan themselves.

I have never done any of this stuff (as my car is to old for these updates) but from an OBD11 Perspective the only other thing that may or may not help is the diagnostic sessions when you go into the control unit you can change it

From memory the dashboard gives you these options

OBD-diagnostic mode
VW-diagnostic mode
End of assembly line mode (EOL)
Development mode

Other control units have different options.

Might just be worth seeing if any of these different modes might help.

But bottom line as you say it works fine its just a pain that error message is showing.

I think I have cured my Sat nav error.
Its a long story but when I bought the Arona the mape were 0910. I did update them to 0915 with no problems/ I complained strongly to Seat customer care about the maps being so out of date and as a result my dealer was allowed to order a replacement up to date SD Card. The dealer subsequently update my sat nav and surpris surprise it was ver 0915. As a result I have two SD Cards but with differently dated Overall.nds Files. I did fully backup each of the cards before playing with them.
I obviuosly got confused and put the early dated file on to the later dated one when I updated the maps to the latest version. The penny dropped this morning and I replace the early .nds with the later one and did a full reboot of the system, cleared the fault code, applied the SVM fix and now I have no Fault codes. Yippee

Glad you have sorted it out. Good to get rid of those tricky SVM errors and not to get them in the first place. They are tricky little so and so's at times.
