    Has anyone else got a bright white dot appearing during the CUPRA logo appearing on the head unit when you turn the car on? I have a white dot (like a dead pixel) half way between the U and the bottom of the screen, but doesn't seem to be there on any other screens.

    Yeah, basically everyone without Nav High on MY2018. The Cupra R with Nav High doesn't have it.

    Thanks for the replies! Also confirmed with dealer, that it's an issue and there's no updates or anything currently to fix it

    Yup have this on my R ST.

    Can’t believe there is no way to change this with a third party tool ??

    I agree, it's surely just an image file displayed at boot up. I doubt they coded the image. However it's probably in an area that's restricted and can't be viewed without the correct permissions.

    I did see a tool that cropped up on the Cupra Facebook group a couple of months ago that allowed you to change the splash screen (amongst others) but it looked a little complicated to use and I don’t think it applied to the unit in my R ST anyway.
    I’m sure it was either of German or Spanish origin.

    Can’t bloomin find the link for it now though :(

    I've seen others have done it on older VAG systems so it must be possible. If you find the link could you share it please as I'm interested.

    Yes the high nav has a built in hard disk which has the maps stored on it instead of an sd card, and CDs can be transferred to it for a jukebox function.

    That's a shame it doesn't work for lower models. Looks like a handy tool for MIB mods.

    Mission on to see if anyone has hacked the standard MIB2 with WiFi then. Probably not.

    The person who has made the tool said in one of is replies that he's managed it by utilising security flaws in the nav unit, so the lower spec unit's would need some kind of exploitable security flaw for someone to develop a similar tool for them too.

    If you can get the full software update, then can look at extracting from that.

    I wonder if you can update maps and more skins with the toolkit?

    The toolkit for nav high seems to enable editing of pretty much any content inside the software - there are plenty of examples they have been posting of people editing the resources to even put pics of their own specific cars and also change the icons, etc.
    ...bit bit jealous here now that I don't have nav high :)

    I count myself as one lucky bugger. When I bought my car it wasn't even advertised with it, or the reversing camera so I was well chuffed when I found it had them.
