    SatNav - Software upgrade required? Recent maps?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this, so my apologies if I sound like an amateur.. ;o)

    I have an 2010 Audi A6 Le Mans (C6 platform I suppose), with MMI Basic Plus 3G (DVD based, in the glove box), and as most Audi owners, I am not happy with the Sat Nav: I can't enter the full post code and the voice guidance is not always top (eg in a round about I am told to turn left to take the exit far too early)...

    The details I have are:
    Software version: BNav_EU-P0022_D1
    NAv Database version: 4G0919884F_ECE 5.10.5

    The SatNAv DVD is Europa, version 2010, MMI 3G.

    The questions I have are:
    1. do I have the latest firmware? I read in various threads that there were available updates, but couldn't find out if mine is the lastest or not.
    2. If there is a more recent firmware, will it be installed by Audi FOC? Can any VWAudi dealer do it?
    3. How can I get the latest version of the maps? Does it have to come from Audi (which would be very expensive I suppose) or can a copy be enough or a new one from Ebay? Will an activation code be required? Someone on Ebay is proposing a Audi MMI 3G DVD Sat Nav disc 2012 Europe, and says that there is no need for a PIN to activate the maps. Is it true?

    Many thanks for your help!

    Well it's not RNS-E it's MMI 3G, Audi did a free upgrade to 2012 for a lot of people, don't how or why they did, but I would guess that 2012 or 13 would be the latest maps and firmware. I would not advise doing any 3G updates yourself and in fact I don't know of any disks for MMI 3G basic, only MMI 3G high, so I can't offer advise on them. But nowadays all updates from AUdi are done under SVM, so it may not only be a software update, but also a code change which is not documented anywhere.

    Fom 2011 the disks had to be authorised by Audi in the workshop, so basically you get a one shot license key and and SVM code with the update disks and AUdi use this with your VIN to authorise any updates. If you don't then they wont work.
