Haven’t got mine yet but I’m fairly sure you can. I seem to remember it was a bit hidden. On my current Skoda you have to go in to town and then you can press postcode

Hi, I took delivery of my Tiguan R line, in November, and from day one I had problems with the Map freezing whilst on a route, and the only way to overcome this was to stop the guidance and restart the route. It went into Johnsons at the end of November to be told it was a recognised problem and they were awaiting an upgrade. This eventually came in April, but despite the upgrade, the Sat Nav had the same problem, losing the route, and map freezing, or not recalculating alternative routes,but dialogue continued. Car went back in the end of April, and was told it needed a new Sat Nav unit. This , allegedly, was fitted on the 10th May, but first long trip I used it on it failed again twice so it is still not fixed, it is doing exactly the same thing. So it has got to go in again. I am wondering if the problem is more about the unit losing the Satellite signals, ie an aerial problem. We shall see, but I agree the inbuilt unit is pants. Anyone else having similar problems ????

MJW,
I have previously had satnav aerial problems. You can check your satnav aerial is working via the split screen window where it displays the number of visible satellites. You just choose the position display via the split screen menu, if I remember correctly.

No complaints at all on function, display, routing.

However, what is pretty poor is the fact the system does not always recognise the sat nav card. Having to remove and reinsert the card approx one in three times is a joke. If one was to take the car into dealer, it would work perfectly no doubt

Not had to reseat the satnav card, but have had to reseat the music SD card. But to be honest, I rarely use the car’s satnav, as I prefer to use Google maps on my phone.
