Ive had the MQB edition for over a month on my MK7. I bought it and updated it to 0.2.4 before install. Ive never had a battery issue and have always seen the EGTs on all four sensors. Of course the layout still needs improvement, its not as clean and sized like on the MK6 displays. But overall, all the parameters seem to work fine on the one I have installed.

If the new beta update has addressed the size and position of the readout that would be great, really only one of the downfalls I see now.

I updated this past week from 1.8 to 2.4 and it was a huge improvement. Font and layout is more mk7 style then the previous mk6 style. Only 4 parameters per page instead of 5, and now the third parameter is larger so it is much easier to see my EGT values. Still no intake air temp but the boost reading worked.

After watching this thread for more than 6 months, I'm ready to give myself and my GSW a treat. Going to the Polar website, though, the order link seems to be broken. Also, it seems to be a British site. I doubt anyone can post a link to the ordering site, but I hope someone can PM me with the info. I really want to get a handle on the DPF and EGT parameters. TIA.

So I got one from Kerma, and my son is helping with the update. Seems 2.4 s the one you're recommending. He says there is a red and a white 2.4. He's having trouble getting MQB to go well. The unit they shipped says PF04 on it. I hope they didn't ship the wrong one! We'll se how this works.

OK. So I'm getting frustrated with the installation. No MkVII instruction videos. It seems I need to release the left dash cubby. Videos show a previous model - just squeeze the sides together and it pulls down. I have squeezed until I think I'll break the plastic and no luck. Has anyone else done this? I have taken off one lower panel.

Seems I'm in no need to undo the battery since there is no knee airbag. Once I can remove the lower panel it should be pretty easy.

I'm looking forward to plug and play, but like so many install videos, a simple "remove this piece" is preventing my making progress.

Any hints?

Is this what you are trying to remove, or is it the panel around this?

Yep - that's it. Wonderful.

May I ask where you located this disassembly info? It will help me to see the information that is not in the pic.

Thanks.

Give it a slow but firm pull in the bottom right corner when you have it open, that seems to unhinge it. There are very small tabs at the top but it doesn't take much to release them.
