Hi, can anyone tell me the difference between this thread and the one with 5.24.4 maps by Congo?
Is it not both for the same MMI 3G Basic model? One has higher map version, one has higher firmware version, am I right?
Thank you.
this topic is not for MMI 3G basic, but it is for MMI 3G high.

Yep, B+O sound system here too which is also causing some nervousness!
B&O on a pré-facelift is no problem at all.
I also downloaded the firmware files but when unzipped there is folder 1 and 2 which both seem to have an overlap of each others files
if you have to do more than one firmware-update, you should keep them separately.

an update should be downloaded, extracted and applied.
if you have to do more than on update, you will have to download, extract and apply the 1st one you need. after this process has been completed, you can download, extract and apply the 2nd.
in other words, keep them apart.
and it does not matter how many folders, etc. there are in one update.

I understand that, but the problem is - when I extract the 1st upgrade there are 2 folders names 1 and 2.
when you have downloaded and extracted one update, you have one or more files and one or more folders.
you have to copy those files and folders - exactly as they are - to the SD-card.
so, you don't copy one folder over the other, keep them as they are.
so, you will not overwrite the contents of one folder with the contents of the other. in fact you don't need to know what is inside the folders.

One thing i'm not sure on is the maps. So near where i live is a major road that was finished in Feb this year, would this be on the latest maps or would that be a release in 2018?
maps are finished somewhere in autumn.
so, this new road should be in next version of the maps.

If my car battery is fully charged do you think it will be ok to do the map update with the engine off? Also if doing the map update will the car autolock when I walk back into the house. Will the update be affected if I'm having to unlock the car to check on how the update is going. :)
I would not take my chances.
it will depend on the quality of the battery.
your car will not autolock, it never does.
just keep the engine going and sit it out :)

Why don't you follow the instructions ??
Download the update, put it on an sd-card and perform the update.
Messing with the files and folders is the perfect way to get in trouble :nerd:

It's no different from the previous update.
1. Clear the current navi DB and HDD partition (green menu).
I have update mine about 4 times now and have never erased the current maps.

always used the FSC-activation, which I cannot find anymore :)
do I have to reactivate, at all ??
