Golf mk8 / Re: Mk8 software version poll
« Last post by GTD1414 on Today at 11:39 »
So mine has been at the dealers yesteday to fix phone disconnecting, climate sync not working & a/c no cooling.

Compressor seals replaced and re-gassed so a/c works fine, phone has been fine too so far.

Climate sync - Still does not remember to sync. It does remember if I exit/re-enter the car straight away, however I've just done a few tests and it 'forgets' to remember the sync after the doors are locked for approx. 2minutes. (the same time it takes for the interior alarm motion sensor to work)

Only difference I've noticed on screen is I now get a snowflake system near the temp setting when I first press ignition.

Software is still on 1666, 'B' device, but then I've read people have had updates and still keeping the same software number.

I'm in the car 99% of the time on my own so for me the sync not working = climate not working.
Finding this highly frustrating after coming from a MK6, A3 8p, MK7, MK7.5 all with climate control that I didn't have to sync on every journey.

Good luck with that 20 week lead time. I ordered a Clubsport on the first week of January and I’ve been told it won’t be with the dealer until the end of September.

Yes, I like to have the map displayed in the AID and Apple Car play or Android Auto can't do that.

Is there any reason you're not using Google Maps (or Waze, etc)?

I'll look this morning at that... I've got to have a look at it anyway as my dipping mirror has stopped dipping...

What does the MK8 wing mirror switchgear look like? Is it a click know that stays pointing at where you left it, or is is a free turning toggle switch like the ID3?

Such a daft little thing that could readily be resolved with a software update (toggle switch to remember it's last position). The only upside to that presumably is that you can't permanently leave the wing mirror heaters on, although there's a menu entry about timings for wing mirror defrosting.

Golf mk7 / Downloading POI's (e.g. Speed Cameras)
« Last post by Sootchucker on Today at 08:43 »
HI guys, now that VW have removed the facility to download POI's in the "Car-Net" (now called We Connect) app, and the "special" VW Germany website that used to prepare the POI packages has long since gone, does anyone know anyway to get a list of POI's (for example speed cameras) onto the car (MIB2) again ?

I did mine when I first got the GTI back in 2018 but have never updated them, but with lockdown about to be completely lifted soon, I have some longer journeys planned in the summer to see friends that live the other end of the country and would just like to update the POI database in the car. I have a running subscription to PocketGPS World, so actually getting the speed cameras isn't an issue, it' just the package to prepare them for the car to recognise them ?

Someone on another forum suggested a package called POinspect0r, but when I downloaded that my Virus program detected a virus in the main executable so quarantined it ? Any advise greatly appreciated.

In the post I linked above it was said that 30ml should do for 3 uses. Not sure what that equates to in grammes as in the ebay ad. Perhaps 10g would do? The bottle I have is tiny and has been used a few times but is still going. Not sure what quantity/weight it was, I'll have a look later.
