    Hello
    I have a question - I ordered the Ateca for production - it arrived 2 days ago
    Manufactured on 06/01/2020 and unfortunately has the unfortunate 877 and is not going to import POI.
    I did not pick up the car because I wrote with the dealer 3 months that such a problem exists and that I will check the car when it arrives.
    Now - is it possible to downgrade to a lower version so that the POI is imported or any upgrade?

    If the car had DAB +, would it be a number other than 877?

    Regards sorry my english

    There is a firmware thread on here but I don't think anyone has posted of trying that

    https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/sw-update-for-mib2-infotainment-system.427280/page-20

    You could ask the Spanish thread which I posted up on this thread. The issue might be that due to the hardware being the Wi-Fi model rather than Dab+, previous firmware doesn't work on it. I have always believed it's the firmware installed on the hardware with the 877 descriptor than the hardware itself. Will check their latest postings to see if a break through has been made yet and amend as required. One needs to keep an eye on the Spanish thread if you have that unit in case there is a breakthrough. I'm sure they would have thought about downgrading the firmware.

    Checking the end of the Spanish thread just now, they are still looking for a solution.

    If the car left the factory 877, does it mean that the factory has no newer version?
    Now, when we checked with the seller that the car does not import POI, does the Service have the option of uploading a newer version to this car?
    Do they have that option?
    877 is this display or is this box with SD in the luggage compartment?
    Maybe it could be exchanged for a different version?

    Regards

    The hardware of the mib2 standard with Wi-Fi fitted to Leons and Ateca with the 877 on the tail of the descriptor is the one with the issue, My19 and My20 so far. It might spill onto the Taraccos outside of the UK, but all UK ones have the previous basic box standard mib2 without WiFi. Also all Cupra Ateca's sold in the UK at the minute have Plus units which are unaffected by this issue.

    Post 69, page 4 on this thread covers how to read off the part number for those effected.

    Whether you can get a dealer to change the box pass on that. From the Spanish thread Seat is washing their hands of the issue. Jose Soria is the one to watch on there since he publishes Spanish speed cameras and has a vested interest.

    Hi
    I found this procedure. Can anyone confirm that it works on M19 / MY20? ( Last update: 02.11.2020 )


    For your information
    If you get an error message when you're updating your device, follow next steps. Insert the SD card into your computer again. Copy the file named 'metainfo2.txt" contained in PersonalPOI/MIB2HIGH folder into the root of SD card replacing the meta2info.txt file that should be already there. Also copy completely the folder PersonalPOI into the root folder replacing the PersonalPOI folder already there. Extract the SD card from your computer and insert it into your GPS device again. Repeat the installation procedure.

    No. That is an old procedure that you had to do after VW messed up the web based import program for the high, prior to that the standard. It was the metainfo2.txt file was incorrect. You could bypass it.

    This has been tried with the WiFi standard unit my19 / my20 units, doesn't work. Post 63 for one and on the Seat Navigation thread. By post 69 the issue was identified as to the specific unit. The test shown there can be carried out. Page 4.

    Will re quote that for readers:

    The issue is not related to the software serial number of the units (0512 / 0514) but part number finishing in 877 and 877A.

    The part number can be obtained by

    ● Press the Infotainment MENU button and
    then select Setup .

    ● In the System settings menu, press the
    System information function button.

    The top line shows the device part number. If that finishes with 877 or 877A then the unit will not import users Poi's. Seat have acknowledged the issue.

    More details on the Spanish thread

    The link you show

    http://www.speedcamupdates.com/seat-ateca-navi-system

    shows a mib2 high where there is no issue. The last update means the database not that there is a solution. Only Seat Standard my19 / my20 with WiFi with the part number shown in the post doesn't allow user Poi import Seat accepts this. Problem with commercial user Pois they want to sell them without doing the research. That research is on the Spanish Ateca and Leon threads linked. I saw you appeared on that thread and they advised you to either have a mib2 high unit fitted or downgrade from the WiFi specified standard unit to one that didn't have Wi-Fi if possible. Arona my19 units are fine. Only those standard units with Wi-Fi specified have this issue. You would have to find a retrofitter in your country and swap out the unit I guess and they would have to do suitable reprogramming to integrate it in. Something a Seat dealer probably wouldn't touch.

    Btw post 586 on the Spanish thread says that's a scam.... beware on that link you posted to. Great minds and all that.
