Anyone else having issues when doing a quick search? I get no online connection and no search results. Using pro nav on a 67 plate car

I had this Issue yesterday, pro nav 67 plate also. As a workaround use online search in connected drive for satnav directions

My pro nav was working fine yesterday also. Drove to york and back. Displayed roadworks and traffic etc. How do you check what version map its on?? And can you force it to check for updates?

The map itself works fine, the issue is when you try and search for a postcode or whatever. As a workaround you can also use Address Input instead of search.

You can check the map version from the nav screen. I believe the menu option is something like Position and Version Info. My UK map is still on 2017-Q3 which is when I took delivery of the car. There is no way to request an OTA update, you can only do a manual update via USB.

Although I specced Pro Nav on my car, I've literally never used it. Always Google Maps. Infinitely better and always will be. I just wish Apple would authorise it through Car Play, but they probably never will as they want to push the much inferior Apple Maps, which I would still rate well above any in-car system.

Last time I couldn't search for or input a destination to sat nav I called up concierge and got them to put it in for me. Worked a treat

I've been finding it's getting better and more reliable. For long drives I have Google maps running only on my phone. Quite a few times recently the car has sent me on a better route. The live traffic seems better too.
