Have just discovered that my March 2019 Built to Order ATECA XL, is supplied with SatNav software that is two years old, and that no updates are currently available.

Apparently an upgraded version was available to me at ordering, but not mentioned.

Can it be retro-fitted?

Take the sd card out of the unit in the glove box, making sure the engine is off, as the version number is written on it.
Unfortunately Seat charge for updates unlike any other VW group car. They are only up to V7 at present whereas VW are up to V11!

The version information is: 6P0719866AF; 1030; Shield 2016-44 (Build 309)

Does this help?

Eric the good news is you can update, here is how:

1. Download the latest uk map - http://vw-mapscdn.tdd.adacorcdn.com/DiscoverMedia2_EU_AS_1310_V11.7z and extract the data to a PC folder using 7Zip (Google this to download it)
2. On the infotainment go to settings, safely remove, sd1 card
3. Remove sd1 card from glove box slot
4. Long press on the on/off to reboot Infotainment a couple of times
5. Insert sd card in to laptop/PC
6. Copy and paste all contents to laptop/PC and retain the data forever as a Backup (preferably in two places/drives)
7. Format the SD card, keep it as fat32 and leave format settings as default in file explorer (don't forget to push the card lock mechanism to off)
8. Copy the new downloaded map version to the SD card
9. Replace /maps/EEC/EEC_WLD/OVERALL.NDS on the SD CARD with the one from the original SD card (See step 6 above)
10. Edit (using Notepad) the /maps/00/nds/dbinfo.txt file so that PartNumber4 correctly has my own part number in it, that is I replaced PartNumber4 from PartNumber4="5F...." to PartNumber4="6P0919866AF" In your case (it may differ for others, also it is only an optional step but I do it for completeness)
11. Using windows file explorer, eject the sd card and safely remove the sd card from the laptop/PC
12. Repeat Step 4 above
13. Insert the card into the card 1 slot in glove box whilst infotainment is off
14. Power on and go to navigation
15. Check version in infotainment

Thanks for the tip above Bedlam.
Did as explained ..... all steps apart from amending the txt file....don't know what that does.
Maps work and I now have the latest version.......at least I hope so....all seems to be working!
I've had my Ateca since last October and the sd card was v7.

In terms of updating Maps the SD Card Version Number is irrelevant......the post by Max2090 is mis-leading and un-informed (and not for the 1st time out of 200 plus posts since mid July 2019 or almost 6 per day, no one is that well informed on all topics)

Step 4 just lets you edit the part no, of your Navi Unit, I like to do this for peace of mind but is not required
If you open your original saved version of the .txt file you can see what this is
Then look in car at Sat Nav Version info

Who made you God and who says you're so well informed? I don't just copy and paste from the net.
As for un-informed I do my research and talk to the right people, Google is not always right.
The version of sat nav installed in the car on the sd card is relevant and correct, standard fitted sd cards are only up to V7 in the Seat whereas in other VW cars they are up to V11. If you read the original post it concerned the fact that his sat nav is 2 years out of date to which I replied as to the reason why, plain and simple.
Plus who cares how many posts I make, it's called a forum...not your personal blog.
Tried calling me out over the clock issue didn't you?, and you failed. You should try getting over yourself and go and polish your sandals and iron your socks. [email protected]!

Who made you God and who says you're so well informed? I don't just copy and paste from the net. I don't do religion, I don't copy and paste, I test what I may find from the net or find myself on forums not Google

As for un-informed I do my research and talk to the right people, Who do you consider to be the "right" people (examples please), did you consult them before ordering your Ateca? I note you are changing it for a Leon soon (very soon in fact), which is good as you will hopefully jog on from this forum Google is not always right.
The version of sat nav installed in the car on the sd card is relevant and correct, standard fitted sd cards are only up to V7 in the Seat whereas in other VW cars they are up to V11. So what, the map data can simply be updated as explained above If you read the original post it concerned the fact that his sat nav is 2 years out of date to which I replied as to the reason why, plain and simple. You did not offer a solution.....I did
Plus who cares how many posts I make, it's called a forum...not your personal blog. Agreed which is why I contain my posts to subjects I feel I can add value to......unlike you who appears to consider him/her self an informed expert on everything, no one is..............particularly not you, don't you realise there are many here who, on your "advice", could end up spending their hard earned cash at a dealer for something they could sort themselves
Tried calling me out over the clock issue didn't you?, and you failed. You should try getting over yourself and go and polish your sandals and iron your socks. [email protected]! There is need for uninformed personal comments either, 1. I don't wear sandals 2. If I did it would not be with socks, I am not German

Unacceptable language and personal attacks are not permitted on the forum. They will result in bans.
I joined as I was interested in sat nav updates.
From what I can see you banned the person who was being attacked not the attacker.
It seems to me the person going by the name is Bedlam was the trouble marker.
Wrong in my book but as a phycologist I can see the real faulty being that of the threatening Bedlam character.
Oh well it's your forum not mine.

This is the first post that started the trouble.
I presume you have a deal with this Bedlam character and he's getting away with it.
Just saying and thanks for the add.

@Pjhoworth your insinuations, conclusions and accusations are totally unfounded and way out of order.
No doubt you will follow my guide to SatNav update anyway, so you got what you came for
