No this isn't true, it's easy to download the correct map from the Seat site and update the existing SD card, providing you restore the original overall.nds file after updating the card.
i can confirm the above as i have done it

"Wow" can't believe how easy that is to do.!!
I copied both new and old versions of the maps onto my laptop swopped the file suggested from one to the other and sent it back to the card, job done.
Gone from 1030 2018/19 to 1520 2021.

Indeed, very easy :)

Picked my Ateca up in July and dealer said he'd fitted the latest SD card they had.

When I eventually I got round to checking the map it was over 2yrs old :(

A lot of posts have explained the process of doing an update of your cars SatNav card as supplied. I summoned up the courage to try it, Its taken me 2 days to sort this, but I have! Try this,;

Read it first and understand the principles of how this works. Note this assumes Windows is your operating system, VW do show how to for Apple in the link below. Be aware of the 2 systems in Atecas!!

1; Go to SEAT site and download latest map version for your cars infotainment system. SEAT Ateca SUV sat nav Navi System car map updates | SEAT I used the 6PO version for my car and "Europe 1" map

Store it on PC on your hard drive for future use. (Create a file called "SEAT Ateca Sat Nav Details)

2; Ensure your SD card from your car is "unlocked" beforehand, check the slider on the side of the card. Put original SD card in PC and "cut and paste" original "maps" file onto hard drive into your "SEAT Ateca" file and call it "Original" just in case you need to reinstall it back onto the card. There will be a file called "maps", this is the program you need to copy. Ensure SD card is empty after transferring off old map.

3; Copy new downloaded maps folder from Ateca folder of PC to SD card completely. Use "7 zip" as below: You will need to download "7zip" onto your PC, then follow these instructional steps below from VW for reference. Be very aware of the unzipping program &zip, its what the maps bundle comes in.

Default Title Choose the Golf model 2017 and the "Discover Media" unit. Scroll to the bottom of this page and find "Download Manual PDF! This is really useful!

4; Then crucially, copy from your ORIGINAL map this file this "MAPS/EEC/EEC_WLD/OVERALL.NDS" to replace the same file on your SD card with the new update. This means that original data on the original map program is carried over onto the new map program. Without doing this, the new downloaded map will not work, as it is car-specific.

5; Relock the SD card and put in car!

Hope this helps!! As I said, took me 2 days but I eventually got it right. Read these instructions and do the downloads in preparation first and keep a cool head when doing it! I've now got version 1115, coming from version 0820

Good Luck!
Hi I followed your instructions to the letter and hey presto, I'm fully updated!

Many thanks

Thanks for this guide, we collected a 68 plate Excellence Lux on Saturday and it was on 2018 / 2019 maps but now updated to the latest version without issue.

I'm having real bother actually copying the files onto my SD card. It keeps getting a few hundred MB into the copy and then errors for 'unknown reason'. Anyone else had this issue and if so, how did you resolve it?
