    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    Well I now have google maps back:thumbs up: after doing the update that Congo from A5OC supplied me with. I too also paid what gregpot2000 paid as well. It is for the lifetime of the system (only subject to limitations from Google itself if they change the back-end drastically) so I see it as...

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    I will reiterate again Makcoding were very helpful to me. THEY NEVER SAID IT WOULD WORK and in fact they thought it wouldn't work but Makcoding let me try the software for free. It didn't work as they thought it wouldn't. I am very grateful to them for allowing me to do this plus it upgraded my...

I haven't read the instructions yet but hopefully I won't need to ask your advice as it will all go smoothly! but I will not hesitate to ask if I have...

    If you read one of my postings that fix is only for the Qualcomm units not the older Nvidia units. Makcoding let me try his fix free of charge to see if it worked. It didn't which is why I am now also in contact with 'Congo' about the same fix that Gregpot2000 has just done.

    That is great news I hope you mentioned my post here, I might get a discount! But actually it is a good price (compared to the connect price now you have to pay each year) per as I believe it should last a number of years. Did Congo say how long they think it will last?

    Here is 'Congo" from https://www.a5oc.com/threads/google-earth-for-mmi-3g.176093/#post-1617047 If you scroll down to almost the end I think they almost have a solution as well?

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    So I presume that is it then for any form of satellite view in units. I don't think Audi will write an update that will make them work. Maybe someone might be able to do it? Also I presume you can't replace these units with one that is compatible and also upgrade the screen to touch like the new...

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    Well I think Audi is the scammer really. They sold a lot of their cars on the google Earth view in the 'cockpit' view and the upgraded central screen only for them not to support it 2/3 yrs later. It is a shame as my Q5 is a lovely car to drive and use but this will put me off Audi and when I...

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    Yes there maybe or I hope there is as I mine was at my Audi dealership for other work and they said they would do the update whilst it was there. It came back as it is now even after telling me I would have satellite maps back! They probably used the same update that I tried as it just looks the...

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    I've been watching this thread for a while as well. I have an Q5 2017 and I rang Audi digital services and they say maps won't work on my Audi yet my dealership says it's possible that it will work? I have been told I have an update available for my car but I will have to wait and find out...
