Ray you don’t need no maps! With you being on the road 24/7 I am sure you know the roads back of your hand.

It's not difficult to do, but the maps need activating with a small file on an SD card after map installation, then there's a software version management error to remove with VCDS. Takes 2-3 hours in total, depending on the speed of the SD card.

Ideally wants a battery charger rigged up throughout so the battery doesn't get a hammering.

Even I don't know everything.
OK I like to brag and make out I've been everywhere, but truth be told, everyday is a schoolday.

For my 80 year old brain that is starting to sound a bit complicated.
Connecting a charger is no problem, that was my line of work when I first started to earn a proper crust.


Think the best way for me is to forget it, unless you put the kettle on and I drive down your way.

Always an option if you're in this neck of the woods

Might be well worth the drive down to actually meet up with you.
But then again I have been promising that for a few years. Lot easier now that I have dropped all the chauffering work.
PM me when you have a spare couple of hours and I'll remortgage the house to buy some fuel.
