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?Looks like I've been the guinea pig for this
If you read earlier in the thread, I've had two appointments with Audi, and basically been told no as I had the older chip.
I checked out the link above, and have been messaging the guy this afternoon. He provides update files to run from an SD card, as well as step by step instructions with screenshots on a pdf...
...and...it's all working again! Couldn't be more pleased!
From what I can gather, the update changes the MMI search path for Google Earth from the Audi servers that have been switched off, to connect to the Google servers directly, as a result, it should be almost invincible now unless Google drastically change their services.
All other connect services still work as usual, the update has only changed the map overlay. It's not the new, inferior (so I hear) replacement service either. It's normal Google maps proper, just exactly the same as before
