I believe you can get the map updates on eBay with the official SD card for about £45.
They gave me a free SEAT multi-head cable when I bought the car, the Carplay randomly disconnects. Seemed better when I tried my Anker cable though. The salesman also filled the tank with diesel and free iLink unlock before I collected the car too. Think he felt guilty at the poor trade in on my old car from the sales manager.
I’m glad this deal has been of some use to some people. When I posted it, I knew it would never go hot because it would be voted down by Seat haters, non-Seat owners, and people who argue, as one poster did, that its “a complete con” because he could buy the parts for no more than £80. Main dealer servicing is always going to be more expensive (and some other car-makers are lot more expensive than Seat), but, for me, it’s worth it because I don’t have a bank account that includes UK and EU roadside recovery (which would probably cost at least £100) and having a logbook full of Seat dealer stamps might add something when it comes to selling the vehicle. Even the wash and vacuum is potentially worth more than £20 over the two years. I’ve had my Seat Leon for several years now and it’s had no significant problems so far. It has the inevitable rattles for which the model is renowned, but it costs me only £30 a year in road tax (because of when it was first registered). Like all car-makers, Seat is far from perfect. What bugs me, for example, is the £150-odd (when I last checked) they charge for updating the satnav maps. Unlike elsewhere in Europe, in the UK they don’t offer a map subscription service - but I haven’t checked recently because I rely on Google Maps or Waze instead. Because I’ve never updated my built-in satnav system, it probably doesn’t even show the Millennium Dome in London!
Come to think of it - I had to have a second visit to get FullLink working for Android Auto. Repeatedly insisted it was installed properly and working, eventually suggested that my phone wasn't compatible (Galaxy Note 8), before finally moving on to 'it must be a broken USB cable' without offering any expertise whatsoever advising me that Android Auto was a fussy beggar and not just any old USB-C cable would do... Properly missing a trick there, SEAT... you could be selling SEAT branded USB-C cables and telling technophobic oafs (or is that oaves?) that they're the ones they need to buy. Then again, I've no doubt they'd charge £59.99 and fifteen minutes of service time to have an engineer open the packet and ensure that the cable is properly installed.
Monster! If only they'd offer me that. I'll be honest, I'd settle for the Alhambra not having had a flawed sunroof construction since 2010 that Seat pretend isn't well documented on forums and by used-car consumer advice websites, but which exists nonetheless in varying degrees of severity, and has become the bane of my life for 17 months made even worse in winter when the cold distorts whatever part of the sunroof it is that's leaking a small stream either straight down my windscreen pillars or through the headliner and into the interior light above the driver's seat, to then run through the driver's sun visor and drip out on to the driver. Not really what one expects from even a four year old used version of the £37,000+ top of the range model... They all seem to occur at 4-5 years old... When they first started building them in 2010 it was about 2014 before they started appearing on user forums as an issue... That and the fact that the sunroof lets in so much moisture to 'somewhere' in the car that if you turn the blowers on even in the middle of Summer, unless you have A/C turned on permanently, the car becomes like a misted up sauna within five minutes, blasting aerosol water vapour on to the windscreen. Very scary when it happens, and how quickly it happens. Still... the in-car Nespresso would be a nice touch. Does it actually work, or like my Alhambra does it just pee the coffee all over the place and then ask you to say 'thank you for my refreshing beverage?'
