I've updated the OP to include the firmware levels included - this will be updated as mentioned, once the map file is done.

This thread will only cover 3G - 3GP I have no knowledge of at all, since I don't have it. I'm happy if there's discussion of options and if anyone has access to the firmware, instructions for updating, and details of reasonably priced/free activation for 2016 versions for 3GP then crack on, either in this thread or start a new one and I'll sticky it :)

Similarly 3G Basic/BNav let's keep separate as it gets confusing!
Ok found the thread for the 2016 maps:smile2:

still have a couple of questions which I hope someone can help me (a newbie) with, they are as follows:

I assume that this will work for my AudiA5 2010 2.0 TDI

Software version: HNav_EU_K0206_3_D1

Nav.database version: 8R0060884R ECE 5.11.7

to be on the safe side I think I'm going to download the Firmware files again and then the 2016 maps once the link is available :wink2:

So my final question is in respect to unzipped the files. Do I just drop each of the folders onto the SD card (ie Audi MMI 3G HDD 2015.part01) or do I need to copy the files over at the lower folder level (ie 8R0060884CH and Activation_3GHi_2015_6.20.4)?

I would like to personally thanks both Adrian and Congo for all the effort put into this as from what I can tell its save a lot of people some serious dosh :)

Cheers
Matt

@congo

Thanks for the information :) Ok so the first hurdle I need to overcome is to write the files to SD on a PC, as I only have MAC's (iMac, Macbook Air) Do you know if I will get the same problem if I write them via Boot camp?

Cheers
Matt

Blimey, that guide I wrote turns up all over the place! Or bits of it anyway lol



That's within the pdf in post #1

Did notice that extract in congo's post seemed to contain a extract of your guide ( recognised the hand lol)

Finally I'm all updated, it took around 4-4.5hrs

I went from:

Software version: HNav_EU_K0206_3_D1

Nav.database version: 8R0060884R ECE 5.11.7

To:

Software version: HNav_EU_K0257_6_D2

Nav.database version: 8R0060884DF ECE 6.22.4

I enabled hidden green menu with an app called Carista via a wifi OBD2 connector, that allowed me to delete the partition before starting the map update.

All that is left to do now is clear the fault codes down with VCDS as described in Adrian's PDF, just awaiting my USB cable to arrive so I can use my copy running via fusion ware on my MacBook Air.

I would like to personally thank the following:
@Adrian E for providing the firmware, map updates and activator together with a comprehensive step by step PDF.
@fred44nl for your help with getting the file structures correct.
@Richard Groves for pointing me in the direction of "The Unarchiver" app on Mac, this worked a treat

The app is free to download from the App Store and I did start out by using their OBD2 connector which is Bluetooth, however I return this and got this one "OBDII OBD2 Diagnostic Wifi Vgate Car Diagnostics Tool,IPAD,IPHONE,ANDROID ICAR2" from Amazon as it connects via wifi which is just my preference.

From you saying you are getting a VCDS to clear the codes I'm guessing it can't do that, so what does it do?

Although it does bring up the error codes and has the option to clear these it didn't appear to work as after rescanning they were still present!

The App itself has the following functionality:
