Can you see the sat nav on drivers display with 1666?

No... I believe it needs 1788 for that.

For me to be honest the hud makes it not something i need. You can also get the direction arrow things up on the aid like on the mk7.5 navigation view.

Version 1788 does enable wireless android auto though, which would be nice.

Well now I’m hopeful too. Does 1788 give you sat nav in drivers display?

Same here, picked my car up last Monday and it is the 1788 software. I can also select on main map to view sat nav on front dashboard.

Yup it seems 1788 is only for that D unit.

You should have wireless android auto too.

According to many it's more responsive, let's error prone too.

Hopefully the rest of the software across the car should be all in a workable state too. Seems likely.

Boggles my mind how they cant manage over the air updates past 1666. Mine is booked in so expecting 1788 shortly but my screen part number ends in B rather than D although the hardware is the same...Despite it being brand new 21 plate?

Wasn’t expecting to need to join a forum to get to the bottom of these types of issues. Starting to think I should have gone for a mark 7.5!
