    Hi I have a 2004 A6 Final Edition which came with a the 2004 version dvd navigation. I had my frien copy his later version which was the 2005 map of western europe and the 2007 map of eastern europe. I placed the 2007 DVD map into my sat nav and it updated my system. I then went to put in the 2005 version of western europe and it does not work and neither does my original 2004 version of western europe. The only one which does work is the 2007 version of eastern europe. Which is of course very little use to me :blush:. Can anyone help or direct me me in the right direction...excuse the pun :superman:Oh there is a message which comes up on the sat nav screen which tells me to pay a visit to my dealer.....urrrrrrrrrrgh:shutup2:

    Think you'll need the 2007 version of Western Europe as the later DVDs overwrite software.

    OK, a suggestion that "someone" may have done.

    1. Buy latest DVD set from dealer etc
    2. Make a backup copy of DVD
    3. Use the backup DVD in your car
    4. Sell the original on ebay

    Totally illegal so you do this at your own risk etc etc.

    Yeah it does have its drawbacks mate, the newer DVD's do block older ones from being used with the newer firmware, guess its the mapping is changed slightly so old discs dont support the updates added to new dvd's, so basically blocks use, typical stealers huh, £300 arent they from them new, I would just do some ebaying on the .DE site as thats where I get my new ones & save myself at least £150 each time minimum.
