Now my car is over 3 years old i no longer get the ''free nav update'' from Audi & have to pay if i want the latest maps from them etc. If i use the nav with Google maps option through the MMI will it be the latest mapping please?.

If I’m reading right and you’re using Google as your map rather than Audi’s sat nav map, then yes it’ll be (or should be) up to date.

To be honest, unless you’re going somewhere that’s had major work / new junctions recently, I’d suspect your Audi sat nav will be fine...

Well that was a bit of a **** up & mistake on my part . Going back to this,when i open the fold down flap on the dash on my RS6 c7 i have the 2 sd card slots but here is my mistake & not looking properly there is no sim card slot. So no chance of using this now

Just done a bit more research & to get the sim card slot apparently you need the ''Audi wireless'' phone box/charging option i think ? which my car doesn't have.

IIRC from my Audi A4, the two SD slots are for either music or maps?


Going back to the GiffGaff SIM, I thought the data had a 30 day expiry date as I was looking for my Volvo as my Three one is nearly ran out.

...............correct Coops but between the 2 SD slots there is a sim card slot but as above i think you need the Audi wireless charging option to get it?.
