Can I ask a question to those whose map database is now upgraded OTA. Do you have an active data plan with cubic telecom?

I do but I’m not sure it’s required for map updates

No, I've never had a Cubic plan.

I believe you only need one if you want to use the car as a hotspot for wifi-only devices which don't have their own independent data connections (such as my iPad).

Thanks both, was wondering if it was needed. The fact mine is not updating has me grasping at straws. It's dealer time when we get back from holiday.

Does need to be switched on for uodates in the settings screen in the connect ID app though, you might want to check that it’s in settings under mobile services

There is a 1gb option with cubic telecom that is free for three minthsand you can sign up with no commitment. Might be worth trying that see if that forces it to work

Has anyone downloaded a map update from VW website? https://app-connect.volkswagen.com/mapupdates/car/

How did the update go if you did?

I’ve downloaded it and keep meaning to install it. Will attempt to find time tonight.

Ohh can you tell me how big it it unpacked? It's already 26gb compressed! I'll need a new USB stick to transfer to the car.
