An update on the Google Earth issue for those with that option. The attached PDFs explain what models/years can and can't be upgraded to the HERE maps.

It seems that Audi have been working with HERE since 2017 on this.

Satellite Maps back working today on my 2011 D4. 😁
I just noticed that the Google logo on the MMI display which was greyed out since January 1st started to load and after a minute or so the satellite map displayed on the Nav screen. It has 2021 CNES/Airbus embedded on the overlay.
Works well and seems to have the same level of detail as the old Google Maps.

That's super interesting.....

I always loved the google maps overlay, really made the 3G+ cars feel way more modern.

If i can find a sim to stick in our Q7, i might give it a whirl to see if its a global fix...

Not sure how much data you need for it but Vodafone does Basic sims at good price. You cannot find them directly on their webpage and need follow a link. https://www.vodafone.co.uk/shop/bund...71e54c55b90f62 It starts at 6 for 4Gb and up to 100GB for 20. You might get better prices on Three or other network that runs on Three but coverage is pretty poor. I used to have Vodafone Basic but switched to Tesco colleague deal 50GB for 10( they also do unlimited for 15) and I can use clubcard vouchers doubling the value so effectively I am on 5 clubcard vouchers/ for 50GB. The coverage is not as good as Vodafone but still way better than EE or Three as both of them are pretty poor at home and nonexistent at work.
