Hi,

I had a quick question-am savvy generally but new to this so here goes: is VCDS essential to perform the upgrades and clear errors? Are errors always expected as there is no connection to Audi SVM?

Basically, can I do the upgrades (firmware and map) and perhaps not expect errors? Also, if I do get errors, does anyone know if something simpler (+ cheaper) such as BW SuperScan VS450 VAG CAN OBDII Scantool Car Code Reader could also clear the errors? I'm just interested in upgrading my maps, not in tinkering with other settings down the line.

Hope this is clear, and hope someone can advise. Cheers
I have the same question, as I'm about to proceed with upgrade and want to avoid any unpleasantness. Just in case I have purchase a really cheap OBD connector ( OBDeleven in Google ), which looks promising as advertised, just I don't know if it will be able to do same functions as VCDS. Does anyone have experience on something similar? And another question, how long does it takes to do 1 firmware upgrade and how long does it takes for maps? Thanks!!!

Hi,

I have updated all firmware versions without an issue, now I'm battling with map updates. I have copied all unzipped files from CD1 to SD card. Inserted it to the slot, but nothing happened, waited couple of minutes, but still nothing. Then I got to the Update menu through Setup+Return, and clicked all the way to the point where it says Updates must not be interrupted. Unfortunately pressing Start does nothing, and you can then navigate to Abort button like nothing happened. Any thoughts? Thank you!

So I found the problem, I just didn't take out my old NAV DVD from DVD drive. After updating maps ( East ) first, I noticed that you only get half of Europe with this. By the way maps were not blocked, I just have to keep my expensive SD card always in the slot :D Here I have 2 questions.

Is it possible to have maps without needing to keep SD card always inside the slot?

How do I get both maps working at the same time, because I'm planning a trip Germany-France-Italy-Germany and both Italy and France are in different maps. If I put both SD cards with maps in both slots will I get whole Europe map active?

I'm sorry for asking this much, but I've done this first time and if it is possible would like to set it up to my preference. Thank you!!!

You should just start extracting the 7z.001 part and all other .002 and .003 will follow into one folder.

thanks,

i have A4 2011 :Nav_EU_P0054_D1

can i directly install BNav_EU_K0260_1_D1_(A4-A5-Q5-Q7) ?

also after firmware installation what is the next do i have to install activation or maps ?

please write down briefly steps here ,

cheers
no, you need to go all the way from the top to bottom with all firmware updates listed in the 1st topic then go with your preferable map update. If you prefer to have all countries listed in the East Map update this one and vice versa. Then if needed do an activator. For my car, activator was not necessary somehow.
