Oh dear not good! My wife current arona infotainment works a treat same as my Ibiza both digital dash and great. I hope I can get my new Arona working as easy.

Hope can get a solution for the radio station update logo

I tried in Leon and new Atteca too and was same so hopefully there must be an answer

None whatsoever I'm afraid. The dealership is looking into the Logos issue and getting Wireless Carplay to work. I've just spent another 2 hours trying to connect using the instructions in the manual and whatever I can find online. I'm afraid Seat have made the 2021 version very complicated, even getting this seat connect working is bad.

It would seem that it doesn't have wireless Carplay after all :(

I was told the maps are on a hard drive. From what I can gather "connected" SEATs like the facelift Ateca need the owner to have a SEAT Connect account into which you add your vehicles, using the VIN number. This account has a number of services that I believe you subscribe to. Map updating will be an obvious one.

I think this is all done through an eSim which is probably a built in sim card. The dealer has to set this up. I can't find anything about subscription or data charges or who provides the carrier signal but I think Samsung wrote the software.

Admittedly the range of services sounds quite good and the whole idea is aimed at the 20s and 30s age group according to SEAT. Clearly an old fart like me with a couple of Computer Science degrees and a lifetime working in software engineering will need assistance using it ;) .
