Don't waste your money and don't buy the navigation system
I am Furious, I received my Q5 TDI technic 2014 on January 13 2014, with few options and the Great GPS ( navigation system ). My car has 3400 KM on it 3 months old and recently on my way back from Ottawa Ontario, I found out that the GPS on my brand new car is not updated with a new Highway that was open to public in 2012 and on top of that the road was made a long time ago but the bridge construction took longer. The A 30 west of Montreal doesn't exist on my new car GPS. You pay over 3000$ to get an old version of a GPS. My wife Garmin that I bought for her 2 years ago has the update A30 on it.
I called my dealer, they acknowledge the problem and said that I would have to pay for the update when available....
I called Audi Canada Customer service about it, the answer was Sir we know the problem many Customers are complaining about it but you have the latest version; 2 year old without the new road that are available since 2012. I said that this is not acceptable when I bought the car and add the GPS option in it no one said to me by the way it is not updated and the A30 and A25, 175.... doesn't exist...they took my money.
The Customer service gave me the number of NavTek they are the supplier of the navigation software, she asked me to call them about the update.....I didn't buy my car through Navtek but through Audi...so she closed the file....wow I am so mad, you can not imagine....so don't waste your money avoid the GPS on Audi
The answer would be so easy: Sir there is no update available at the moment but as soon there is one, we will update your car at no charge....we are apologizing about it and we understand your frustration.....
Anyone else who bought an Audi recently who has the same problem....
If I need Nav I have 2 systems...1 on my phone and 1 on the iPad I am using now. I find it ridiculous both the price they charge and that some people think they need yet another GPS. Ordered without Nav

Don't you also get other features with the system? I don't even think you can stream bluetooth audio without the NAV option or maybe that is the MMI option. I can't remember.
I always use my phone with Google Maps (which always has the most up to date version Google offers) assuming I have a signal. But even if I don't you can always plan ahead and download the map data of where you are going to be traveling.
Maybe with enough complains they will change company's or force them to use a different map source.
Starting planning my ED.
