Had a remote control battery changing session on the Kessy keys Ateca and Arona.


Not sure whether the newer Atecas have moved to 2032. Above the trick of getting these into the original 2025 remotes with the 50% capacity boost. Gone over to Duracell now on all of them. Got two years use out of the aging Panasonic's 2032.. but from the original blister pack unused the spares were knackered even thou they measured 3.3 volts... not delivering the amps. Dim remote red light when pushed and no Kessy open. Duracell dated to 2029, here we go.

Had the BBC R4 logo turn into the R3 one yesterday.:sick:

Deleted the station and had another go. Newer firmware you tap the button and hold again to get the image. That didn't work. Mused over whether the BBC was broadcasting the incorrect logo.

Visited the resource ;)


Already got one downloaded logo, downloaded another one from the media.info site.

Went out to the car - it had fixed itself o_O.

So yesterday the DAB and FM station logo wasn't correct in these parts... today fine.

That web site is useful on the new tricky stations where the old logo is sometimes shown or no logo at all. BBC and RTE transmit logos, varies. In the earlier firmware they were preloaded.

Well we updated the mib2 high maps today to ECE 2021, good till June 2021 when the next update comes out. All good. You have to make sure your FECs are up to it in Mib2 high. Those with recent non face lifted mib2 highs can take advantage of the one year free update period by checking the FeCs following the read reckoner thread (mostly Cupra people these days). Once out side that ££££s to get the unit turned into a retrofit or buy the maps one off if you can from a dealer in the UK. Went the retrofit route so the 2016 Ateca has 2021 maps ?. I'd still be on June 2016 if I hadn't gone for the retrofit approach in 2018. Nice to get the maps integrated into the cars system as designed rather than an adjoint.

The download links are often discovered ahead of the main release wrapped in a web page. Occurred this time round. Where VW, Skoda and indeed Seat people load up. Reasons slightly unknown why Seat always lags in the publication of maps. Sometimes Skoda beats VW to the mib2 high one, like this time round.

There is a resource for anybody interested:


Facelift cars with Mib3 early days on the knowledge base. We know it uses Here Maps cartography moving away from the TomTom of the standard unit, same as Mib2 high system. You get your free one year updates and a connection app.

Picked up my new Ateca Xperience lux today. Over the moon with the car. The Technology in it is miles ahead of my mk3 facelift Leon. ACC is a great thing during rush hour traffic!

Turned 2,500 miles today after five an a half months of ownership since new. An absolute pleasure to drive, quick enough for what it is and handles so well.

Felt the new car was a bit sluggish off the line so after 1000 miles I plugged in my carista and noticed 'throttle response' was set to gradual by time. Change it to 'direct controlled by threshold' and its completely transformed the driving experience. I can actually pull away quickly now without having constant wheel spin. Also for the last week I've had this new throttle setting and noticed my average MPG is around 4/5mpg higher with this change surprisingly.

Which engine is in yours, the 1.5 petrol turbo?
