    Hi all,

    I went into MMI Setup/settings last night and it told me there was an update available. I went into it & it asked me to choose the source, so I chose online update and I then had to tick the countries from a list of all European countries. So I only chose England North/Ireland and England South. (Presumably Scotland & Wales are classed as England North).

    Should I have selected all available countries? Did I do the right thing? I'm assuming it was for Maps, but it didn't say that.

    Cheers.

    The 2018/2019 maps are now available to download you can download the full package from my audi. https://www.audi.com/en/myaudi.html

    You will need a browser like chrome and the java runtime installed.

    Oh right, thanks for clarifying. So I can download all the countries with no issue. Is that what I should download onto SD Card & then upload to the car from SD then?

    That is the quickest way, the entire update is almost 15GB in size.

    I went into myaudi.com and copied the update to an SD card, however when I put the card into the car and went to updated, the SD Card sources were both greyed out. The car recognised that the card was in, as when I went to media, it tried to read the card and said the content wasn't supported (as it wasn't music obviously).

    Any ideas as to what I may have done wrong?

    Did you format on a Mac?

    I tried an update recently and even though I formatted to fat32 in a Canon and then transferred files on my Mac the sd contents were still greyed out so it might be a PC only exercise

    Did you format the SD card with fat32? Also are the updates at the root level.

    I think the files need to be in the root directory of the SD card and not in a folder

    I did a quick format on a Windows Laptop, which I've done before & checked it was fat32.

    Not sure it was saved to root level - how do you ensure it is done as a root folder?

    I'll check that then. I didn't create a folder, I just assigned the SD card as the destination.

    Hi, open your SD card and there should be 2 folders and 3 files on it, nothing else.

    Out of interest if you go into Mib2/NavDB/IrelandGreatBritainNorth_eu/0/default and open your content.pkg file with a text editor is your
    creationTime 2017-06-22 ?
    Seems odd to me that it is 1 year old

    Hi Paul,

    Where did you see that it was a year old? Are you replying to the right thread?

    I've put the SD Card back in the laptop and following the download he other day, the only file on it is a WMPInfo file, which contains only a .XML file when I open it.

    I didn't create a folder on the SD Card when I downloaded it, so I assume it was saved to the root directory. I have to save firmware updates to USB Sticks for work & it usually works the way I did it to the SD Card this time.

    Any further advice?

    hey Spied, I just looked back at your OP and realised you did it OTA for UK. Then from the web and through MyAudi for the rest. am i right ?
    The latter is how i did mine, For the complete package you will need a SDcard (or microSD card with an adapter) of 32GB size. and once you have selected complete package from myaudi a small file is downloaded ( a .jnlp i think) just double klik that it opens a java applet, select your SDcard as the target. it will do it's thing which seems to take hours and when finished your SDcard should look like this

    if you follow what i said earlier (Mib2/NavDB/IrelandGreatBritainNorth_eu/0/default) and use notepad++ to open the content.pkg file, it's in there i found the date and timestamps for map

    Think you've just answered my question then. I was using a 16GB SD Card, as I was under the impression that it was a 15GB update. Strange though that the update ran to completion.

    I'll try to run it again (when I have a few hours free) & see if it works, but if not, I'll have to order a 32GB SD Card & try yet again

    My update was 15.5GB bud, if that helps. mind you there is nothing stoping you from downloading it to a folder on your pc and copy the contents of that folder to the root of a new SDcard when yo get it

    Yeah, I'll try that method tomorrow then - if I do it now, I'll have to get up for work before it's finished. Cheers for all the help Paul, appreciate the help mate.

    Nah, I've just reformatted the SD Card just now, only to see that although it's a 16GB card, it only has 14.8GB of capacity. That must be why only the XML file actually saved, I guess. Strange that it didn't bring up a message saying there was insufficient space on the card though.

    I've just ordered a 32GB card from Amazon which will arrive Thursday. So I'll try again in a couple of days.
