Hi! I have a 2018 up and my partner brought me the bottom dash mount bit for Xmas but didn’t realise that the phone cradle part that clips into it comes as a separate part. Does anyone have the ‘new’ style phone mount part number they could share with me please so I can get the right one? I cannot find the part number for it anywhere!
Thanks in advance.

I have cradle also, without updated software. Just use google maps. In maps app, click on settings, then navigation, and activate "play as bluetooth phone call". This bypasses what ever "blockage" VW have installed, and system works perfectly, as it thinks it is a phone call ! you can get the genuine short VW lightning/ data cable on e bay for about £12.00.
Skoda cradles are identical ( have VW logo on them). Available from Skoda Dealership. Part number 1STO51435B. Cost: £30.00.

Hi Guys, I'm (hopefully) bringing this thread back from the dead. I have a 2016 VW UP which came with the Maps + More unit and NO USB on the top of the dash. Now that Maps + More is so out of date, I'm wanting to use a mobile phone instead. reading through this it would appear that I will:

Need to replace the click in bracket on top of the dash?
Need to replace some wiring to get access to the USB port?
Buy the mobile phone mounting bracket?

I'm reading though some of your posts and am hitting a bit of a barrier due to lack of knowledge and a few dead thread links so I cannot see the pictures/descriptions.

If I wanted to get full phone integration, it sounds like there's some fee to pay to VW? (£150+), would this give me everything I need (bracket, phone mount, wiring and integration with the radio?. I really use the hands free bluetooth in the Maps+More so it's essential for me......

Can anyone revive this old thread and post some new links or advice please?.

Many thanks,

Rich
