2019 maps version 6.28.2 - 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.

For facelift cars with 3G+/3GP see other 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

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

I did not need to re-activate, having done so for 2018 maps. I did still get the SVM error in VCDS, which doesn't stop it working if you leave it/don't have VCDS.

If you need to activate the maps, this one worked for me last year:

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:

If you don't have up to date firmware, links in the thread below:

Hiya

I didn't update the instructions - it's a repeat of what was posted in 2017, so I think you're probably right that there's a later one. It's not critical as the methodology hasn't changed.

I didn't bother deleting anything - just ran the update, reboot, clear SVM code and job done :)

the 1st picture indicates, that the firmware is updated.
so, the maps are probably not downloaded correctly.
or there is a problem with the SD-card.
I would say: try again downloading and loading the maps.

Dear all,
I want to thank all the contributors and authors of this topic and also summarize some findings.

This regards update firmware and maps to:
- 257_6_D1
- 6.28.2

Starting point: factory firmware and maps from 2010.

Car considered: Audi A5, MMI 3G High, European distribution

1. Error 141.
This appears to be fault of the SD card.
First, when 64GB SDXC card used, formatted exFAT - first error came up.
Then, same card formatted FAT32 - still error 141.
Finally SDHC 32GB card, formatted from factory in FAT32.
This one worked perfectly (you will not fit both 3GHigh and 3GPlus data on single card).

2. With 6.28.2 no need to use any of the activators.

3. The nav partition deleted in green menu. Not sure if this was needed. There are contradictory statements on many forums about this one.

4. For the firmware, One by one step approach. So 5 separate firmware updates.

5. The whole process takes exactly (maps): 2 hours 58 minutes

6. Be aware you might need to start the engine during the map upload process to secure proper power supply. This depends on your battery.

Once again. Thank you

Dear All,

I have an S5 2008 with BO sound system.

SW: K0022_1_D1.

How can I update the SW, do I need to do anything special?

Thank you!

If your sd card is bigger than 32GB windows will only format in exFAT32 which the car cannot read. Download this below:
www(dot)ridgecrop.demon(dot)co(dot)uk/index(dot)htm?guiformat(dot)htm (replace (dot) with actual dots since i cannot post links yet. Then click on the image to download)

and format your sd card to FAT32 and then try again. Let me know how it goes :)
