I have just received my new Golf GTi complete with the VW MFD2 sat nav system using Tele Atlas GB & Ireland 2004/2005 CD.
I am most disapointed in the detail that is available, even at maximum zoom level street names are not displayed unless you specifically highlight them with the crosshairs.
I like to see street names on the map so I can check streets as I pass them.
The VDO system I had on my last car showed all street names.

Am I missing some switch or something in setting the thing up?

You're not missing anything... It is not possible to display the street names on the map on your system.

Not able to see street names on a 1700 built in sat nav system? I reckon this is one big rip off, even my little PDA shows street names.

I will never buy VW/Blaupunkt again.

Well, this applies to Ford, Mercedes, Skoda and lots of other car GPS's...

The built-in in-car GPS's can never keep up with the development speed of the PDA's.

You must remember that the MFD2 is a minor update from MFD, which came on the market 7 years ago.

The good thing about in-car GPS's is that they are connected to the car's motion sensors, and give you pretty precise guidance in multi-storey round-abouts, underground/tunnel intersections, between tall buildings etc, which a PDA can't.

HI, Totally agree with you, I have a MFD2 on my VW Touran,and not very impressed with it. My Tom Tom Go, is far better.

I only have 2003/2004 maps on mine, does yours support TMC ie active re-routing?. I am after a copy of the later maps with that on - any chance for a fee of course?

Kind Regards

john
