At the moment that's it... Same with wireless android auto.

There was rumour of both getting fixed but I've only seen one person in Czech Republic who said about it...

Keyless entry doesn't work properly on mine either. Only unlocks if you approach from the rear. Suspect it needs a new antenna module in the front...

For those on the ‘B’ hardware (can’t display Nav in drivers AID) was this feature supposed to be part of the standard GTI specification at that time?
Did they remove it from standard spec or was disabling it a software mistake?

Its hard to say actually.... I've tried getting VW customer services to confess but they won't.

Its definitely capable of doing it, its just not enabled. Before you ask, you need to change some settings in the SFD protected part of the config... so no you can't do it.

A while back I went cover to cover through a couple of the early brochures and couldn't see any specific reference to maps in the AID for anything other than the Pro Nav.

Like you say, annoying when the Mk7.5 had it as standard straight from the get go, and most early Mk8 reviews and road tests seem to feature it.

My assumption is that it was meant to have it, but due to the litany of software issues they were having as the car went into production (and still are having to some extent), they left it loose when writing the press material.
