Can anybody tel me if there’s a difference between “Active Info Display” and “Digital Cockpit Pro” on a Polo? I configured a Polo on the VW Website and the option was listed as "Digital Cockpit Pro" but then when I spoke to my local dealer, to order, it went on as "Active Info Display"?

Looks like the active info display has had a name change. It’s also described as Digital Cockpit Pro in the current price list and spec brochure. Here’s the description from the price list / spec brochure of what you get with the Digitsl Cockpit Pro;

Digital Cockpit Pro
10.3" high resolution TFT dash display screen with customisable menus and information. In lieu of multifunction display. Please note: When the navigation map is displayed in the Digital Cockpit Pro in conjunction with the Discover Media Navigation infotainment system, the navigation map cannot be displayed on the Discover Media Navigation’s 8.0" touch-screen.


And here’s the description from the April 2019 price list of what you got with the Active Info Display;

Active Info Display
10.3" high resolution TFT dash display screen with customisable menus and information. In lieu of multifunction display. Please note: When the navigation map is displayed in the Active Info Display in conjunction with the Discover Navigation infotainment system, the navigation map cannot be displayed on the Discover Navigation’s 8.0" touch-screen.


So Digital Cockpit Pro = Active Info Display and looks like no difference between the two.
