According to my dealer Audi connect is coming to Canada later this year, their sales guys have signed up for training in preparation for it.

I was able to register under https://my.audi.com/, it came up as an A3 Sportback TDI as well and only thing under Audi connect is map updates for the NAV. The update was huge 16GB! it took over took 2 hours to download and over an hour to update in the car.

Hi ZetaMSZ006

Thanks for the info on the available GPS update.
I tried to download the file but I get a .jnlp extension and I'm not sure what to use for that file type.
Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah, the fact that Audi Canada has our cars listed as a TDI is disappointing. I did contact Audi Canada on this and they said they'll look to address that error. Who knows how long they'll take.

First make sure you are using IE as the browser, then you need to go to Java and update it. Once that is done go ahead and try again, if you have the updated Java it will run the .jnlp file automatically and you will get a Java logo.

Heard it is coming for A4 and Q7, have yet top hear if it's coming for the A3.... Just rumours right now. Really hoping it does come to Canada for the 2017 Models.

I should clarify, I did not meant that it's coming on the A3 specifically, just that it will finally be available in Canada.

Confirmed with a dealer A4 is coming with Audi Connect as an option at $520 in Canada.... No word on A3. Not on the order sheets, nor as an option. Most likely will not be available for 2017...

The site's down,it allows me to order a 64Gb SD from Amazon to download the map update.The SD slot's in that box in the glove compartment? Did you/anyone else have any routing issues before the update,what version is it? Looking for an update because the GPS has started routing me north,into a bunch of streets,then back south to the street I could have stayed on. If I wasn't in a familiar city,what a waste of range/gas. One recent address,it had NO idea the street was now a dead end [over 10 years],making me VERY LATE for my meeting. My 2013 vehicle's GPS knew this.I notice on the website there's no release date for the update,just 2016/2017, or file size if it wasn't for your post,16Gb,thanks.

Once you put the SD card in either slot 1 or 2, was it instantly recognized when you navigated to the path to update the gps?
I've tried both slots and neither would be "discovered" by the car (both were greyed out).

I seem to remember two files on the SD card. One was data and I think the other was a loader maybe? I inserted the SD card, then went to the nav system settings and found something about update. Then it found the card and went at it. It updated while the car was on and took maybe an hour. During that time, everything (including the nav) was available as normal. The update ran completely in the background.

Note that I'm in the US, so I don't know if there are technical differences between our cars.
