    Hi,

    Anyone know the release schedule for the map updates on MyAudi.com?

    I thought an update was released every 6mths for download, we must be overdue now?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeff

    Does it cost or is it free? How do you update it onto car?

    It's a free download, you copy it onto an SD card and the MMI unit will install the update

    That's provided you don't have SD navigation in which case you have to buy another SD card. Only the Tech Pack comes with the 5 free updates.

    If you mean how do you do a firmware update on the MMI then AFAIK only an Audi dealer can do it .... and they won't unless there is something wrong. They apparently won't do it even if there is a later firmware update.

    Noticed the map download option is now missing from MyAudi.com ..... is for me anyway.

    Either they've pulled the service, or we have an imminent map update coming.

    Map update has disappeared off the local AU site as well today - looks like they are indeed about to release the new one

    Mines still showing Europe 2016. How do you know if you've got it already without having to download it?

    I'm out free updates now as far as I'm aware, which is annoying. It'd be OK if they were even just a bit delayed adding new roads, but there are some near me now that have been roads for years and still aren't on the maps. Why the hell do we pay Audi so much money for a system they can't keep up to date when Google etc manage it for free and are capable of much quicker updates?

    Can't wait until I have Android Auto in the car and other options become available! Shame that it won't integrate with the virtual cockpit though (I'm guessing anyway).

    Are the updates vehicle specific? could we not just download one and put it on dropbox for others?

    That's interesting as I've asked in the past what the cost is. Presumably based on your comment you have that figure? Could you share it with the rest of us please - my free updates will finish next year. Thanks.

    For what it's worth my map app is still there as is my destinations, but last year Rob2k68 and I spent ages with customer services trying to get these back on my.audi as they had disappeared. It seems Rob's my destinations never did reappear but mine did!

    Its only free with the Tech Pack Nav. If you have the SD card Nav you don't get it free

    Having just swapped from my S3 to an RSQ3 (which also has the tech pack), but I no longer get the free updates like I did for my S3, as the RSQ3 Tech Pack package doesn't include them (nice to be consistent Audi). There are 2 elements to getting the updates:
    - you have to buy the update pack (seems t o be anything from £165 upwards, depending on whether you get just the maps, or the map and operating system update
    - you have to pay the dealer to install it - another £150-200 - as it has to be dealer authenticated

    So reckon on about £300-£400 at a guess.

    Now.....whether Audi will do something different for the S3 after the 3 years of free updates have run out is anyone's guess. Either way, there will be a cost.

    When lots of members had lost the map update option from my.audi at the last update a kind forum member did exactly that.

    I can't remember the exact amount, but I think it was over £200 from what I remember talking to my dealer. He could have been wrong though.

    They did, but that doesn't mean it would work on anyone else's car (and if they are vehicle specific, they are leaving themselves open to prosecution by sharing the data too no doubt)

    It worked for several people who all have tech pack high MMI and was a big help to those who lost the download option and were within their 5 update period. The SD cards are highly encrypted to the vehicle so it wouldn't work for SD nav users.

    I do wonder how the tech pack maps and the update system works - it could be quite simply date related that updates will only be accepted within 2 1/2 years after the date of registration.

    We'll see soon enough then I guess. I'm out of updates now but happy to try putting new maps on if I can get hold of them.

    I always wondered if the update worked if it was downloaded elsewhere and put onto a system that had run out of updates. I asked this a while back and no one had an answer then but i guess not many people were in that situation of running out of free updates. Good to hear that it looks like it works.

    I think it was worked out that you get the next 5 consecutive updates. You can't pick and choose which 5 you want so can't just download one a year on the basis you thought you would get one update for the next 5 years.

    I'm not sure i have many updates left, possibly 2. Car was purchased in November 2014.

    I'm happy to upload the next update somewhere for someone (@cemerson?) to try.

    I did mine last Saturday. Checked the date on the system & it was dated 2014. Got a 32GB SD card & logged on to "my Audi" & started the map download, takes around an hr. Put SD card into the car & after 25mins or so job done, checked system & stated it was on 2016 mapping.

    just to confirm, do you have mmi navigation plus and connect? I am due to get new A3 sportback later this year with standard mmi navigation and 3 month free trial of connect - do I understand correctly that during the 3 month free trial I will be unable to update the maps as you also must have mmi navigation plus?

    As above mate that's what I did. Had the car 5 weeks & "yes" it's the SD/up grade version of the satnav. No problem with the download after I registered on the "my Audi" web site.

    Got the same issue. Checked the site today for the latest maps and my destinations and download maps have gone. Car was registered June 2014 and I've only had 4 updates at the most. Bit annoyed that lost my special destinations as I used this for putting speed cameras on the maps.
    Do we have to speak to the dealer to get this sorted or is there a contact at Audi UK?

    The option is still there on my myaudi - still 2016. Car registered Nov 2014.

    @marshalex - I don't think it matters if you've only downloaded and applied 4. If there have been 5 since your car was built/registered (not sure when the cut off is) then you are out of your 5 free updates i think. Of course, you may still have 1 left depending on when it was built/registered or you've applied the updates as soon as they've been updated on myaudi.

    That's what I'd have thought but counting through on the basis they're released Jan and June then I should have 1 left, unless they do it on the build week cut off in which case it may have be 5. When I got the car it had the June 2014 maps on so I'm confused. Raised it with CS anyway to see what they say.
    If could get my current spec in the new A3 with the android auto I'd be tempted to upgrade the car but it seems you can't get the 2.0 TDI 184 without quattro and s-tronic on the refresh.
