    Sat nav info centre

    Does the sat nav get updated when the car goes in for a service at VW dealer? Is there anyway to update it without going to main dealer?

    According to VW - when I purchased mine in April - yes (presumably you can ask not to have it done) but it costs 159 for a Touareg!!!!

    From new your vehicle will have three years of free updates, that is two per year. Generation 1 DNS unit update has just been released, gen 2 will follow.
    The updates can be done via the VW website and will need to overwrite the original SD card nav info. There is a software app for PC/Mac which will handle this.

    Sorry Cityman was that "Diddly-squat" you meant? Did you also mean update the map data or indeed uprate the Sat Nav?
    If you are after the map updates, then If you Google "VW Sat Nav updates" then you will find more info.

    Thanks - ****** predictive text! Yes I meant update the maps. I guess software updates to the actual unit will be a VW job. I had a stand alone Garmin in the old Discovery and that came with lifetime upgrades and map updates at no cost.

    Thanks. I've had a look and there isn't a card in the info centre so I assume that means it is a dealer only update for everything. (
