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

Glad you got updated @Matthew Borrett. Got to take myself the next step up to 257_6_D2 and the 2016 maps when I get another spare 4 hours....

How do you find the Carista + wifi OBD2? I presume it is this from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00YVHGTBM/?tag=carista-21

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? I'd prefer to be able to use my phone/iPad to scan and tinker without having to run a virtual windows machine on my Mac laptop and drag that out to the car.

Richard - Carista can read and clear fault codes, enable the hidden menu and enable a selection of programmable features (eg beep tone on lock/unlock etc.). It does not allow access to change the raw coding like VCDS.

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.

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!

Have you got the folder structure right on the SD card, or have you used a Mac to copy the files over?

Can't think of any other potential reasons it can't read the metainfo file from the top level of the card....

And you are using SD card and not dvd right. I have tried with dvd's for the firmware upgrade and can confirm that it is not working.

CD's work. Original DVD's and clones work too, but if you just write the files from the folder on DVD it is not working. At least I wasn't able to make it work and have tried more than 10 blank media's +R -R and different manufacturers:(

nothing wrong with that.
doing it all the time :)
Nothing much wrong - just more cumbersome and with a wireless + iPad solution I could use it while travelling around, maybe even do some continuous logging. Can't charge the laptop in the car.

Also I don't have a full Windows licence (been Windows free for 8 years now!) so am using the MS images from https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/mac/ for Virtual Box and suspect I'll have to reset the VM every 90 days, as that Windows image is just for testing the horrors of IE on really so self destructs.

And then there is the nagging fear that however much fire-walling and sandboxing one does something nasty will crawl over the Windows wall onto the Mac's HDD and lurk around ready to cause damage. It's not a platform I any longer have confidence in my ability to keep safe.

Hello,
I don`t know where to write this, but i`m gonna be really thankful if you guys can help me.
I have an Audi Q5 from 2011 with MMI 3G basic (only SD card and DVD) with framework: BNav_EU_P0206_D1; Nav database 5.13.8.
I read older posts from 2015 but i don`t know exactly what updates I should have to do, to have the newest firmware and the latest Navi (2016).

Hello,

I'm actually at firmware version 206 (HNav_EU_K0206_3_D1).

Before updating my Navi-DB, I have to update to version 257.

Does this mean that I first have to update my firmware twice (first to version 253, and afterwards to version 257) or can I update directly from version 206 to 257 at once?

Thanks for clearing this out for me and many thanks for this interesting topic and guideline!

Regards,
Vicef

Hi All,

Just bought an A5 coupe, 2 days ago and it is missing alot of roads!! Also, the coverart does not display when playing from the jukebox. I have made sure that the covertart is encoded to the mp3 too, this i do understand!!

The unit is a 3G High i think, not sure of the difference between the High and the Plus. It does have the joypad on the main selector.
I have the following version in my car.
Software version: HNav_EU_P0072_D1, Nav. database version: 8R0060884N ECE 5.12.5

I have downloaded the B8 Firmware, there are 4 folders in there, do I have to apply each one at a time or can i just up load the latest?

Also, i read that i need a cable, where do i get one from and which one is suitable, please.

TIA
Regards,
Paul.
