      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

hi all
i have a 2009 elegance and the satnav died on me, dealer and skoda paid for repairing the system (new motherboard).

on completion all seemed well til the other day when using the satnav, the white matrix between the dials has no nav option anymore?

i suspect i may need either a newer can gateway or some coding.

any help appreciated.

info from satnav

Did you press and hold the button on the end of the wiper stalk when the sat nav was operating as that will make the maxidot go back to MFD screen.

Columbus issues in 3yr+ old cars seem to be popping up frequentky at the mo. Mine died the other week, kept trying to re-boot itself, see other threads on columbus for more info, I was lucky as skoda and lease firm paid the bill between them so i got a fresh unit. Had to haggle with dealer for latest firmware and maps though, even though it was costing £2000 + vat they wanted another £175 for v7 but after a heated exchange they gave in and loaded the latest disc they had, v7 so i,m happy.

Interstingly though, I lost maxi dot nav and radio functions initially, however after restarting the car next morning, all menus were back, think it just needed to sleep for a while. I think if the car is off for 2 hours or more, the computers re-boot and recognise each other again, someone else suggested disconnect the battery may also work as both systems need to re-boot simultaneous to recognise each other

It'll be a coding issue, the Superb 2 uses BAP protocol to the cluster and this has to be enabled in the Columbus using VCDS or the dealer diagnostic tool.

The same thing may also happen if the firmware is upgraded with the wrong disc (one that's had the PQ and SK tables swapped) rather than a standard unmodified one.

Thanks mannyo :)

Would running a standard Firmware sort this or does it need to be coded via VCDS ?
