I haven't read the attachment yet, so apologies if the answers to above are already addressed in it. I've updated the OP to include the firmware levels included - this will be updated as mentioned, once the map file is done.This thread will only cover 3G - 3GP I have no knowledge of at all, since I don't have it._6 is not necessary to run the maps and I gather it is only a small update compared to _5 if you're already there.
It shouldn't be necessary to do it after the firmware has been updated to the current level, so maybe it's something I need to revisit in the guide.
I think I caveat it a bit in the guide, but I did delete as a belt and braces approach and didn't suffer any problems.
Ok found the thread for the 2016 maps still have a couple of questions which I hope someone can help me (a newbie) with, they are as follows: I assume that this will work for my Audi A5 2010 2.0 TDI Software version: HNav_EU_K0206_3_D1 Nav.database version: 8R0060884R ECE 5.11.7 to be on the safe side I think I'm going to download the Firmware files again and then the 2016 maps once the link is available So my final question is in respect to unzipped the files.
Do I just drop each of the folders onto the SD card (ie Audi MMI 3G HDD 2015.part01) or do I need to copy the files over at the lower folder level (ie 8R0060884CH and Activation_3GHi_2015_6.20.4)?
Each MMI 2G software update brought stability and performance fixes for bluetooth, GPS navigation, amplifier, radio & TV tuner.
Also some new features were introduced with Audi Multi Media Interface updates, like GPS map 3D view from software version no. Performing this procedure may cause permanent damage to your car. This is needed only if your car is equipped with bluetooth handsfree system. You have to do it twice since first update procedure will erase bluetooth device memory.
in the file MMI3G - metainfo2it says for every folder: Delete Destination Dir Before Copy = "true", which explains it for me in Adrian's excellent pdf, it says to delete the old maps, before installing new ones.
in the file MMI3G - metainfo2it says for every folder: Delete Destination Dir Before Copy = "true", which explains it for me The reason for recommending deleting the partition is that many pre-2010 vehicles left the factory with any inadequately sized nav partition, so after updating the firmware it resets the partition size to make sure you don't get the failed install message.
It might work for the software upgrade but it wont work for the map.
If your map version is older that 2015 reported as 8R0051884CH (6.20.4 2015) you will need to delete the NAV partition first.
mine have been updated now 3 times, and the old maps have never been deleted separately, as suggested by Adrian's pdf.
