After my 5,000 mile service on my 2013 Q5, I began getting a message saying that Google Maps was off line and a display saying "Google 2G" and including an unidentifiable icon with a line through it. When I removed my SIM card and put it back, it solved the problem and Google Maps immediately came back on line.

I have got Google Maps on my Q3, (using the Bluetooth High option with online services) but find I really don't make use of it. After the initial novelty wore off, I find it difficult to follow Google Maps in real time. What is much more useful is the online traffic display, which is more accurate than the standard TMS traffic info.




Has anyone else4 ha experience of using Google Maps with the Q3/Q5?

You would have to pose that question to Audi. All I can tell you is that my first service was required at 5,000 miles or six months.

larry, the reason I pointed out that 5000 miles seems very low for a service interval is that here in the UK the standard service interval is about 19000 miles on longlife service plan (which means that the engine has been filled with a special longlife oil that allows extended service intervals) or about 10000 miles or 1 year under the fixed service interval plan. I am not aware of any Audi plan here in the UK (or indeed any manufacturer service plan (other than specialist sports cars) that specify less than 1 year in normal operation.




With respect, larry, it is not for me to pose the question to Audi, whether UK or USA, about your car and its service intervals. It's your car and for you to ask Audi USA. It may well be the norm in the USA for more frequent service intervals, but in the UK and Europe the regime is as I have outlined above.
