Here's one for Ghizzg or Kindness or anyone. Galileo went live yesterday

http://galileognss.eu/

The Pocket GPS World mail out said that car satnav received it and I vaguely remember that EU rules may have made European car manufacturers to build it into their systems, suitable moaning about this. So I'm wondering whether it's built in the cars satnav if you went for this option. I haven't been able to find anything that says MIB II receivers are already prepared for Galileo. I know my tablet does the US ones and Russian ones Glossnoss. Galileo you 1 metre accuracy when fully implemented.

All in-car navigation in new European cars will also be able to access Galileo's positioning system.
It's been a long time coming so the standard was developed sometime ago.

Probably more hard Googling is required.

So Texas Instruments chipset but haven't found whether it's compatible, loaded and indeed is working.

A number of smartphones using Snapdragon 820, 652, 650, 625, 617 and 435 chipsets will already work with Galileo after a software update. All in-car navigation in new European cars will also be able to access Galileo's positioning system
Obviously smartphones running Android Auto will also take advantage of Galileo supplement reception if they have the Qualcomm chipset above, sorted out for Android 5 & 6. You use GPS Test by barbeauDev not the other ones, will show a country flag against the satellite group connected. Pass on iPhones.

I'm sure VW owners might be asking the same question but haven't found them yet.

Might be going to answer my own question. Galileo is a VCDS parameter for some cars so it appears what we want are the codes for the Ateca :). Assuming that if it's shown then it's implemented.

It's in this list, not sure what model this is thou

http://obdeleven.proboards.com/thread/321/export-controller-channels-map

(1)-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Default,On
(2)-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-GPS,OFF
(3)-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Galileo,OFF
(4)-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Glonass,OFF
(5)-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Compass,OFF
So yes, it's seems to appear as a parameter. I've seen a 2015 list where it's on there as well, first post of the code

http://forums.ross-tech.com/showthread.php?4343-Support-for-5F-MIB2-Columbus-amp-Amundsen-on-MY16-Octavia-III/page6

So it looks like it's rolling out. I suspect somebody out there has the Ateca VCDS codes. If it's not on the list then it doesn't exist. If it is shown something like above then it's probably implemented. It's probably highly likely that it's on the list and probably likely it's been implemented if they have put those parameters into the VCDS codes for MIB 2 which were shown in 2015.

Tell said:
If that is indeed the case, then presumably at some point in the future, it will have to be incorporated into all Ateca's which are fitted with a sat-nav system?

Do we have any idea when this will be... or is it happening already, but the facility can''t actually be used yet?

It is on the settings that I posted up early, so I'm not sure whether it is implemented or not and just place markers. The VCDS parameters. If one mastered the OBD interfacd you would turn off everything else and see whether it worked,

Thanks Mcderm, no I hadn't.

I'm still not sure whether the VW system access Galileo satellites or not since they went live. It will be using the American and Russian ones for sure. That parameter file I posted up suggested they were in there although they could have been put in there for future use.

I was resting my ODBeleven now not wanting to get carried away. I'll have to research again whether I can see those parameters in it or not.

This one is off an Audi

IDE08814-IDE04033-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Compass On
IDE08814-MAS01570-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Default On
IDE08814-MAS02614-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-GPS On
IDE08814-MAS07828-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Galileo On
IDE08814-MAS07829-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-Glonass On
IDE08814-ENG10975-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-external_gps_1 OFF
IDE08814-ENG10976-Navigation receiver GNSS configuration-external_gps_2 OFF

Where Galileo is turned on, it's a Ross Tech dump

Think it's all controlled in the 5F module...

My long code

Long coding: 04230601FF0A000011111101008808002F0100C6012001009E

Have to see whether ODBELEVEN have puts some screens around this module. At one point Golf 7 owners didn't know the make up of this string.

Work in progress ;).
