    Plus (Mib2 High) was / is an option on the Ateca and Ateca Cupra specific where its the only option. Mapcare is not currently supported in the UK although retrofit software follows the same controls. Whether non UK based or retrofit, reviewing the Mapcare FEC tells you whether you have the ability to updates the maps and when it runs out.

    How to do it:

    1. Hold Menu button until service mode shows.
    2. Press "Function enabling codes (FEC, SWaP)"
    3. Press "Installed codes"

    Look for the FEC starting with 073 and note down the two last characters as per image example.

    Use the table:

    Code Allowed - Map Update month
    10
    11 2015 June
    12
    13 2015 Nov

    For example if the Mapcare code ends in 22 you can load up to and including the June 2019 release but can't go beyond. 16 covers June 2016 but not beyond. 10 doesn't include 2015 June. 3f means you can update to November 2026 etc.

    Those people with Mapcare or retrofits can check up to when they can update their maps against the serial release.

    Derivation is here, post 1914:

    Interested to see the Mapcare FEC of Skoda and VWs which are said to have unlimited updates. Last two characters. May be it's done a different way when Mapcare is scrapped with a different code which means don't bother to check for Mapcare. Welcome people posting these up on recent Discover Pro and Columbus units where you have access to these vehicles to aid understanding.

    BTW these Mapcare limiting function update codes apply to all Seat Plus units, have different lead in codes for other VAG brands but similar / same last two character sequences.

    Whilst the above indicates whether you can update the Seat Plus maps based on its Swap / FEC code (100% sure how that works), I was kindly sent the Skoda Columbus Kodiaq codes where the maps can be updated for an unlimited period. For this unit I don't know whether that is achieved by the firmware version or setting the FEC on a Mapcare code low or high. If it's the latter it maybe 08300008 which looks like Skoda's version of the Mapcare FEC, which would be low (08). That's just speculation thou. I have no way of checking and mine are set a bit on the high side now .
