As there are some cards that are clearly not supported it would be nice if the dealerships could gibe some direction on to which ones will work in their vehicles, or the manufacturer could (like other brands) supply sim with a complementary free period, after all these are not cheap vehicles and you can get this service from some vehicles costing a third of the price
A sim and 3 months free trial is offered in North America FWIW. Didn’t realize you’re on your own elsewhere!

There was a similar problem. I tried 3 SIM cards from different operators. The machine did not unobstruct either.
I went to the dealer. The error was confirmed. The manager inserted my card into his phone, turned on the Internet.
Potmo inserted the map into the car. Suddenly everything worked, the car read it.

Just to let you guys know, you don’t actually need a SIM card to fit in your Velar , if you have a mobile phone that allows tethering... you can connect and use your mobile in that way and just have that one contract..!!

I got a '3' data SIM (24gb for 24 months for a £40 one-off payment)
I had to activate it at a shop (with one of their box activation units) and after this, it worked fine when plugged into the SIM slot in my Velar.
I do not recommend activating the data SIM on any phone as it may lock the SIM to the phone.

Hope this helps
