Links to the latest versions of firmware and map update (with activator)

Firmware, in order:

0031_3 -!0QMzmBrY!dvXVnAimkFaiNBqt_W49XYVAQdHstOJC39Q5exO8g0w
0206_3 -!JU8VTaCC!BFFwWdE-x2Tlj8ZsWG69LOGw2dW4QJBhsHRm3H5IN50
0253 -!YY80DSrB!j5mO0eJ5-3H9EKKP3CjyHZAuDxxENEhPnnHyNgwBu7Y
0257_6 -!YB8kDBbZ!IF9dUHoNIb5gS2MvBaPCEQRgyU2lC6_mot5_F9mric8

Firmware, full package to 0257_6:!cZsBHKBI!-PkGxY8is1hAs-QVbiUfN4A-J0YkVd-qT00M_fEL2jE

There is unlikely to be any further firmware update for 3G from Audi so if you've updated to 0257_5 or 0257_6 you won't need to do it again.

If you don't have/can't get access to VCDS and need to activate the green menu you can use the following script from Congo's 3G+ thread [ Green menu activation ]

1. Unzip and copy to SD card.
2. Put the SD card in the MMI.
3. When prompted press the center knob.
4. After the script is done you will see confirmation screen.
5. Remove the SD card and reboot MMI

I haven't used it, but it appears plenty have :)

2017 maps version 6.24.2 and FSC activator - PLEASE NOTE - this package is ONLY suitable for 3G and not 3G+/3GP so if your firmware version doesn't match the style indicated in the instructions do not bother downloading this file, as it's been cut down to make the download smaller and so it'll fit on a 32GB SD card without issues.!VRdjVJ7S!63opUL3IAdSrTiRY2IXuVQ

There are 2 folders - 1 contains the map files and the other the activator - they need to be copied to separate SD cards.

For facelift cars with 3G+/3GP see this thread for correct links - don't muddle them up as it doesn't go well.....

Update instruction guide below - this one is a better layout than the one I produced a couple of years ago, and covers firmware updating etc!YU81xLIA!5HdPIKX6inbzA02hiML6jcfKQI8-AIvcvbgWH-hNo0g

PLEASE NOTE - THESE ARE FOR EUROPE, NOT ROW OR NA and I cannot help with questions about where to find them.

I recommend using JDownloader to grab the links and WinRAR for extracting the archives when finished downloading. If you hit the download limit from Mega and don't want to pay for premium downloads I can recommend using the Opera browser, which has a built in VPN tool so all you need to do is switch location and it will allow you to continue downloading. You do lose the option to use JDownloader if you go that route.

These files are from a variety of sources, so credit due to all those who compile and make available :grin2:

hi the activation doesn't work I've copied it to the SD i can see the files but the system can't read it
It worked for me - have you managed to resolve?
Thank you very much. The title does not say anything about HIGH so I thought it is basic.
There is 3G Basic, 3G, and 3G Plus - 3G is replaced by 3G Plus on facelift cars and both are HDD based, whereas Basic is DVD or SD card based. 3G is 'high' in Audi nav-speak as it's not DVD based 'low'
This would be firmware order:

Not quite


All the above are in the firmware package in post 1
Have replied to your PM

On 4th update, everything is selected as 'N' so the 'Start download' is greyed out??? How do I solve this please?
The only remaining question is ;
On version 0257_6 all the standard options are set on N, but the version in the display shows HNav_EU_0257_D1
It should say HNav_EU_K0257_6_D* where the star could be 1 or 2 as it just depends on the number of updates (there was an 0257_5 before 0257_6) so from memory mine used to be 0257_5_D1

Basically any 0257 level firmware is as late as it gets really - if 0257_6 is showing no updates available then it should mean it's at that level. Worth checking that there is an _6 in there

@Paul Clark - did you resolve this?
I have added the green menu activation script to the 1st post - I haven't tried it, but assume the 3G+ thread is where people who have done so got it from :)
