Replace Discover Media to get Navigation

Post by » Thu Jun 10, 2021 2:18 pm


I have a Tiguan 2018 R line with no navigation. Uptill now I have been using Google maps to fulfill my navigation needs via Android auto but now I wanted to replace Discover Media with a unit supporting navigation. Can anyone please suggest the best option with best price and optimum functionality ? Should I get discover pro or some other alternative?

Hi, don’t think I will be alone in saying that the VW navigation really isn’t that good. The only real benefit it has over CarPlay is that you can project the map to the AID (if supported), for the visual aspect only.

I remember one forum member upgrading analogue dials to the digital AID cockpit as he wanted the map there, he ran into a lot of coding problems if I remember correctly.

I don’t think I’ve seen any posts here about people upgrading as you’d like to do, but hopefully someone else might have some info for you.

Found some info here after a quick search. ... id+upgrade
