A new road can take a couple of years to appear, a big road should be on the yearly update however....

You should have the latest map updates (0820), I would of thought a new one is due soon??

There is the link to the map update page, no Arona there yet but can use Ibiza.

I've tried in vain to navigate the Here website to find a price for the (Ibiza) map update. Do you have to do the complete download before this becomes visible? If not, do you know the cost?

The above is the complete link, no cost involved, just click on the download link. I just tried it and 12.6Gb downloaded for European maps download started with no issue. I assume you are on a UK based IP address as Europe has mapcare which you have to pay for :?:

If you are outside the UK it is a VPN job, or use TOR and configure Exit/Entry nodes to GB.

Thanks Cyberbob. Yes, I'm UK-based. Haven't got my Arona yet (next couple of weeks, hopefully), but good to know future updates are free.

I see the Arona now has an update page too, are we eligble for updates and are they free?

This line concerns me:
Do not rewrite on the original SD card if you are not absolutely sure that you have the MapCare service!
Rewriting the SD card without hiring the MapCare service may cause data loss!


Based in the UK

Thanks

Just found this on the SEAT Website for the Arona map updates
Looks as if it is version 1030
Think most of us will have version 0820

I am downloading all the versions, and then will check which one to use and update it tomorrow and report back.
