Audi Connect and Google Maps

Post by IanQ2 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:40 pm

Hi

Anyone shed any light as to why my Google Maps is no longer working?

Car is now 3 years old, Audi claim they have extended the Connect License but it states my License has expired when I go to Google Maps on the MMI.

Its so frustrating and Audi do not want to know. Any suggestions?

I have both VCDS (Vagcom) and OBD11 and neither show any faults.

I thought it was rubbish as you will see my replies in the thread! but my dealer told me its true this week. My Q2 is a 2018 and isn't affected though.

Thanks Ormesome

Yes, sadly its true, although Audi haven't told me this, I have go this off a VCDS specialist. My Audi dealer and Audi UK haven't told me anything.

I suspect that once you get to renewal point it will stop working like mine and there is currently no way to get it back.

What year is your Q2? Apparently not all, if any, Q2s are currently affected, so defo check with your dealer. Seems like there is an update that the older gen cars with VC and so on, will get which gives a satélite view overlay. No one has this yet anywhere so no one knows what it looks like but the option is there if you are affected.

Don’t think it’s related to renewal point, could be I guess but people in that thread above and others on the internet are saying they have been renewed for a year and it’s suddenly stopped working.
