Thanks.

I have attached picture of my current sd card that I was given as a replacement for the missing card. System information says that navi not available. I did think to try buying a new sd card to see whether it will work but not sure which one to get
Maybe the forum experts on this @Tell & @Walone will swing by, just be patient.
Or you could tell the "Stealer" it does not work I guess

That is indeed the latest link since VW has changed their web address but not the solution to the problem since the unit is locked to an overall.nds file so you need that file and the V1 overall.nds file which is good for all releases beyond using the "workaround" method.

There is a post I did on the main navigation thread which covers lost and stolen cards how to get back your system.

See post 2151


Get the V1 version of the Mib2 standard from the Skoda servers. That has your overall.nds file in it which will work with any subsequent release whatever your Mib2 standard unit is on else you will spend a long time on trial and error trying to find the release that matches your car. Use a PC not a MAC or follow the Mac guidance.

Then follow post 2075, key to all mib2 standard map update screw ups. See under Lost, Stolen and Missing Cards from a Mib2 Standard Unit

https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/navigation-system-updates.388586/page-104

Enjoy.

BTW

VW has just changed the server address so I have edit correct link into there so it picks 1430 up... there will be a new release soon that will replace 1430 - expected in the next couple of weeks if VW keep to schedule. VW release, Skoda and Seat are all the same except VW get them first.

Replied above :). Just use the card you were given but follow the instructions to action the workaround or alternatively as you say get the dealer to put it on their system and re-register the card but if Blue Frost wants to be able to do the map updates themselves then they need to master the process or cough up £120 or something every six months or when they want a map update. This has just got the first extra step of getting an overall.nds file that works with all subsequent releases which is the Seat year one of Mib2. Normally you have that as we all know :cool:... unless you are one of the people that deletes everything on the card without backing it up, or loosing the back up. Then you either find the release that tallied with what you had or use the universal solution above of downloading the Seat V1 card which is then good to go with the workaround.

You wouldn't be trying to sell something on the boards would you... there are rules. It's easy enough to re copy back the overall.nds file no sweat. You didn't actually provide the answer to the original poster but gave them a link to the "latest" files that would only work if the unit was married up to the 1430 November 2019 release. Highly unlikely that it would be if it's second hand car. It falls into the category of lost and stolen cards if the unit once worked and then follow that... it free.

I thought I'd let that pass ;). @Walone the expert on the infotainment firmware especially mib2 high I reckon, never done a firmware update but I've done plenty of navigation ones which are common to the firmware. Resisted the urge to mess my unit up by playing with the firmware just the maps although on a high can be fun, less dangerous on the standard which was the subject (like an old computer with a card reader or tape drive get it wrong and it won't work, get it right and it will, mess the firmware up and mess the car up - the difference between map updates and firmware updates).

Thus this thread and the navigation one. This question actually appeared on the wrong thread since its a navigation one rather than firmware.

Apologies if this has been asked before but looking to see if there any updates I can do to the software on my 14 plate MK3 Leon these are the software numbers. The sat nav is ridiculously out of date but I believe you can only get them from the dealer right?

Wow, what a long running thread. My car has been in to the dealer today for its service. I asked about firmware updates and they told me they check and update everytime it's in. Call me a pessimist if you like but 3 years ago someone posted the same details as my system is showing so... Could someone tell me how I check for updated firmware on a unit with these details.

Device 5QA035858A
Hardware H31
Software 0363

In not interested in the navigation updates I use android auto for all that but its this the latest software for the infotainment system?

368 is the latest and a great improvement for AA

Pmac2k you forage threw the Spanish thread mentioned in the thread, I guess looking for 368 now... that is where the thread was getting it's info from and standard firmware downloads from memory. The firmware for the units isn't sold onto customers. It's only offered by the dealer where there is a software bug which effects the functionality. Not provided free where you fancy your car looking like the layout of newer firmware now fitted... for that DIY or retrofitters. A case in point is they colour coded the display of the Ateca to match the chosen interia side lights circa 2018 models on the high unit atleast. Nice touch but I wasn't told. Only got that when a retrofitter upgraded the firmware. Like the engine management software you get a free upgrade if a fault is found. Pretty screen colour coordination of the screen to the interia lights isn't one. DIY beware thou... never did a firmware upgrade myself but there will be pitfalls, VCDS programming I'm sure since stuff defaults back.

Thanks RCupra. There have been some little bugs with AA, Screen corruption when running maps and random disconnects that you need to do a full reset of the unit to reconnect.

Thanks for the information Tell, I've not ventured into changing anything on the car everything is pretty much default bar radio station preferences.

Might it be best if I look for someone that offers an update service or is it something similar to updating your laptop bios, tricky, Potentially bricking your head unit but doable? I'm assuming the forum I'd be looking at is the clubseatleon one.

Believe it's that one. I had a long read one afternoon and people on this thread know how to do it. You need to pay attention to how the FeC licenses are carried over. It is like updating a bios, router firmware, one way ticket if it goes wrong etc.

I see there are YouTube videos.... as said never personally touched a firmware update.

I updated the firmware/software in several stages (MIB2 High) with files sold to me on eBay, all went well but I had to re-enable Mirrorlink, Carplay and Android Auto using VCDS. You must make sure that the power supply is not interrupted so battery must be in good condition and fully charged or connected to charger.
