Default Google Maps

Is there a way to keep google maps on my Q7 with just the ATT unlimited sim card in it? That is all I use and, I feel like paying $199 for 6 months is extortion if I'm paying ATT another $20 a month to feed it! I've been having to drive the truck more in the last 4 months and this car has only had 1000 miles put on it in that time.

I think andriod auto (and soon) carplay are the answer.

If you have ATT you can get data in the car w/o paying for audi connect but you can't get any of the features just data on your car's wifi

Sorry to parse words, but do you actually have "google maps" on your Q7, or are you referring to the "google earth" overlay in the virtual cockpit? I can use google maps on my SQ5 through Android Auto (and soon Apple Carplay), but my Audi Nav is not actually google maps, although I do have the google earth overlay in my virtual cockpit. Genuinely asking, as I am not aware if the Q7 has a different Nav system than the Q5/SQ5.

The Q7 has HERE maps, formerly Navteq. Then the Google Earth is overlaid. Traffic is provided by Inrix. Voice waypoint search is provided by Google. If you don't subscribe to the Audi Connect PRIME, you lose all of it except the HERE maps (basic nav). Hooking up to your ATT wireless plan provides in car wifi, but not any of the above.

I have unlimited ATT. I was hoping someone had figured out a way to keep the virtual cockpit without having to pay the ridiculus $499 fee. That's the only thing I use from that service. The all or none is what gets me riled up. My Q7 is basically a second vehicle that sits for long periods. I like the system Dodge has better, you pay for it when you want to use it.

Unfortunately, we are stuck without it unless we overpay.
