My maps settings are on auto, but I wasn't sure what external lights setting I was meant to be looking at.
My maps don't seem to change even when set day or night. That suggests to me it's software, not a sensor?
Just some thoughts, and thanks to everyone who has commented so far.

Spoke to Skoda UK Customer Support this afternoon...apparently the Day/Night display problem is NOT a known issue. Nor is the Navigation centering problem.

Their suggested solution...reboot the Infotainment by holding down the on/office button for 10 seconds.

Ironic that at at night the screen is too bright until I use reverse, then its not bright enough...completely A about F.

Greg, when you called it in, did the dealer give any hint of recognition of the issue?

If you turn the headlights off or on does that change it to day and night? That seems to be the trigger on mine. In auto headlight mode, if I’m in dull light, the dipped beam comes on and satnav goes to night mode.

RichR, thanks for the suggestion, but regrettably it did not work for me. Tried all sorts of things now, but at least I'm getting to learn my way round the menus.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I have tried everything, including a factory reset, and nothing works. Mine goes in on the 7th December to have a software update for the heated seats problem and they are looking at the sat nav issues as well. (Day/night mode issue and the pointing north issue) I’ll report back when I get the car back.

It is looking like a fault in the navigation software itself - hopefully reloading the software will resolve it. Haven’t seen any similar issues reported on any of the Enyaq/ID.4 forums or Facebook groups so possibly a one off.

Not particularly. I was also disheartened to hear that my local dealership hasn't even got their staff trained to work on EV's.

I had an infotainment software update through on the car today so I'll see if that has any new features to help

An update on our Sat Nav night mode not working.
I've checked this doesn't work in night or auto setting, and at night with the headlights on or off. Distractingly bright at night.
So, rather than being an isolated issue, I count at least five of us with this problem. Maybe we could share system information to see if it's specific to one combination. Here's mine: Hardware H20, Software 0795, Display unit hardware H7, Display unit software 108, Navigation database was 20.7, now 21.9.
Please let us know if anyone manages to solve this, e.g. with a reboot or software update. Thanks.
PS I love the car otherwise.
