That is the product that Seat UK had arranged to fit in my car, but failed after many hours as Mapcare needs to be enabled at the factory - according to Seat UK.aleao said:Yes, in Portugal is the same, SEAT says that is not possible to retroffit Mapcare... (in the Navi System Plus)wiz2003 said:Unless something has changed - suggest not by the comment on the instructions, this only works if you have Mapcare.
You may have Mapcare now, but I don't as I believe that it was not offered by Seat until 2019.
So, I was not offered it at the time of purchase, Seat UK have tried, via the dealer, to have my maps updated on numerous occasions but they have now confirmed in writing that Mapcare is only available as a factory installed option and cannot be retrofitted, so I cannot legally update my SD cards (I have 2, version 3 and version 6).
It took me 3 years and many letters and phone calls to finally get Seat Spain and Seat UK to sing off the same hymn sheet...
I suspect that Mapcare can be retrofitted IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ARE GIVEN THE RIGHT TOOLS, but with Seat UK that is not the case. The Seat Tech's do not even understand what can be done with OBDEleven as the car is basically a computer with an engine and wheels...
But that is strange because there's a price on SEAT site for the Mapcare, around 500 euros.
or in Germany
If Mapcare cannot be retrofitted why there's a price for it?
So, I'm using G. Maps and Waze... and I don't think a good idea to pay for the SEAT (and others brands) very expensive and useless navigation systems.
