Hi there, I've just picked up the Golf Life Mk8 - does anyone know how / if you can get the map on the virtual cockpit?

I've been cycling through the menus but it doesn't seem to be an option.

Thanks

I could be wrong but the Golf life comes with the Discovery media unit which does not have that function. The Discovery Pro does.

My bad : i found this video of Mk8 Life model where the maps are on the active info display. Using the view button on the steering should allow you to change the view to maps.

Yes, view button on the steering wheel does it for me. Discover Pro sat nav is required for this, but I believe up until very recently Satnav Pro was standard equipment..

Hi,
My dealer said that you can't view maps in the virtual cockpit if you have Discover Pro.
Seem silly as this is a very expensive option

I have the r line 1.5 tsi 130. I've been doing my brains in. Even the entry level has the ability to view maps on the virtual cockpit?

Unfortunately it is visible if you have the Digital Cockpit Pro.
A step back from previous models.

That's weird as the entry level model has this feature I've seen everywhere on YouTube. But the r line which I have doesn't? I'm waiting for technical at vw to get back to me, just want to make sure otherwise that's really disappointing

Let me know if they give you the same answer as me.
I have the Style eTSI.

Will do my friend. In thr clusters on the virtual cockpit it allows me to click navigation but I get a little direction animation but no maps. Really disappointed by that.

I was checking the new product guide that just came out for 2021 here in Ireland and they updated the Discovery Equipment section:

I have asked VW for more information because I ordered my car in September and is to arrive in early January.
Will I get the Pro or Media? I can see option 2 been the answer.
Also in the UK you need to pay 1600£ for the Discovery Pro for all Trim versions even the GTI/GTD/GTE
Where here in Ireland we don't even get that option.

I just checked with my VW rep and he sent me all the pr-codes and Package code for my car and I do have the RCB package with 7UG Discover Pro. :giggle:
if you have the 7UG code then you have the Discovery Pro.
If it's 7UT then you have the Discovery Media.
