That's correct. I did first tried to use the activator as the very beginning of this thread but when I put the sim card in nothing happened. I got a bit worried at this point as the navigation come up with the error maps not authorised (or something like that).you're welcome
just to make sure:
you installed 6.24.2 maps and activated with an FSC-activator from last years maps.
I ask this, because this has been asked before and the answer was: FSC-activators no longer work.
So download the FSC activator and followed the instructions from page 19-22. It worked fine for me then. Also much quicker now loading.
