If I pull the SD card out with the nav data, then go into system settings, the info for navigation database is blank. So if the OP's car came without a nav SD card, I don't think there is a way to determine which map version was installed previously. But it makes sense that this would be the only version that will work without being activated.

.
Just to clarify: The ebay link posted for the "S" version (part# 5G0919866S) is for North America, but seems old at V3. Perhaps someone that has this part# can confirm the map date. Also, the ebay link for the "Q" version (part# 5G0919866Q) is for Europe.
The part number that your dealer gave you (ie. 5G9919866Q) is probably the most recent version with 2018 maps. I have the 5G9919866M maps which are 2016/17. Both are for North America, and would work on your 2015 TDI SEL, as that's exactly what I have (excpept in Canada it's called a Highline instead of SEL). The other part# that your dealer gave you (5G0919866S) just doesn't seem right. Dealers are almost next to clueless when it comes to anything relating to updating nav maps. But as Bizzle mentioned, if you don't replace with exactly the same as what you had, then you will likely need activation.
