2020 maps version 6.30.1 - 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.

26.99 GB folder on MEGA

The link above includes an activator file, but if you've successfully updated in the last couple of years you shouldn't need it. Note that the activator needs to go on a seperate SD card, and shouldn't be copied with the map files.

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.

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:

6.31.1 (2020/2021) Maps are out now. See GPSPOWER forums.

Or 38.14 GB folder on MEGA
So I’m in the US, what would happen if I tried to update it to that but only the MMI and not the NAV. Keep in mind I’ve never updated my A7’s OS. Dealer said it was never updated and priced it around $800 to do it for me. I’d rather do it myself since I can handle the technicality. Honestly any advice would work.
Get a new dealer. That's an outrageous price for a routine task that is mostly unattended.

And yes you can update firmware without maps yourself if you want to.
Here in North America what happens is the dealer is going to charge for the Firmware if outside warranty, or in warranty if you do not have the right "description" of a fault fixed by the newer Firmware. It's like knowing the secret handshake...

So they will charge for the SD card with the Firmware, and then they will charge at least 2 hours labor as the car occupies on of their bays! This is also how a Navigation map update also costs a fortune...

Back on the topic, read up from initial posting here on how to do the Firmware yourself. It should apply to your US market car to do the firmware described.
Yes its perfectly normal to pay for dealer installation of firmware updates outside of warranty.

And I know you commonly get stuffed in the colonies with vast fees for services like healthcare, education, pensions, dentists, care homes, etc. etc. but that's still $400 an hour! Surely that's not normal? Here in London its under $200 an hour for Audi or under $100 an hour for a 3rd party Audi specialist such as iAutoUK.
Audi dealer labour prices in Ontario are around $150 per hour, so you are likely still going to pay around $600 all-in to get navigation updated.
Still sounds excessive. Doing maps + firmware should be circa 2 hours of which maybe 10 minutes is attended.
