    I have the SD sat nav in my new 13 plate sportback. It is fine but It has failed to recognise a few road systems and wondered if it was bang up to date. Has there been any recent updates?

    I have the tech pack with the latest maps and there's still some roads (some more than a year old) that it doesn't recognise. It also has some.... eccentricities... The other week at 1am it calculated that the quickest way for me to get home was using a Ferry (she gave no warning about it as I set off). By the time I realised her faux pas I had added an extra hour onto my journey:(

    Does your mmi have dynamic navigation option, if so turn it of as that will change routes auto & not to the optimal either, did the same to me on an rns-e & took me on a joy ride around stoke on trent when the M6 wasn't actually that busy lol.

    I'm glad it wasn't just me. The roads in central Gloucester gave it some problems

    Hello Simon,
    Does the Sat Nav pick up the GL post codes Ok? I read in a earlier post (a couple of months a Go) that it was a problem.
    As I also live in the Gloucestershire area I would be interested to know. Car being collected 1st Sept.

    Yes, seemed to pick them up but the roads outside the shopping outlet centre seemed to give it probs.

    Thanks for info. The shopping centre was built approx 4 years ago, does that mean the Sat Nav maps are that old!! I was hoping for current map software. Not four / five years old. Has anyone questioned Audi on this topic?
