  1. Updating navigation maps

    Mobile Electronics
    I just bought a 2019 Arteon and when I looked at the navigation map SD card, it's from October of 2018. This seems really old for a nav map data set. At any rate, I went to the VW web site to see if there's an update and it (1) looks like this is something that will cost money to update and (2)...

  5. 2013 SEL Nav Unit problem

    New Member Introductions
    Ok, My battery Died. Put a new one in and my head unit/nave will not come back on. Stealership says unit died due to bad battery install. Now says it will cost me 3200.00 to replace. Just checking to see if this is true with these units, and can I just install an aftermarket unit instead.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    2014 Passat TSI SEL. All of a sudden I can't turn on the "entertainment" system, including the radio, navigation and the back-up camera won't come on while in reverse.

    I'm looking at a couple of 2013 Passats and considering purchase of one. Both are equipped with Navigation systems. As I understand it, only 2014 Navs are compatible with VWOA's new Car-Net satellite assistance program (sort of like GM's On-Star) which my wife would dearly appreciate. We older...
