For the past few years I have had a couple of Mercedes C-Class cars and installing the SCDB has been very easy. I recently changed to an Audi A4, only to discover that it is impossible to upload the SCDB, or any kind of POIs. This, I believe is now the case with many new cars.
Does anyone know of any other make, or model of new car that allow POIs to be uploaded.

This is not really the best place to ask.

Maybe dedicated car forums.

Honda is the same. Used to work but no longer.

We've had a few people recently complaining that they can;t use the database in Audi systems - the thing is, we don't actually support them and they are not listed on our compatibility chart...

Would be nice to find out who recommends us because it's a hassle then having to deal with the support and complaints...

Not having the database on my car head unit is unimportant.

Most new cars now have Bluetooth so you can run the likes of CA or STA, depending on phone, and get all the benefits of voice alerts instead of an unhelpful 'beep' that means nothing.

"Fixed camera ahead, 50 miles per hour" = no need to look away from the road.
