    New Nav map available in Skoda update portal

    A new map is available in the portal called MRM 2016/2017. The last version released in Nov 2015 was called ROW 2016, the ROW meaning 'rest of world'. Anyone know what MRM refers to and whether that applies to Australia?

    Good find. It looks like it could be the right one. When I go to the portal a message says next update is in June 2016. I entered my VIN and it came up with MRM 2016/2017. Last week I installed ROW 2016 as our new car came with ROW 2015/2016. Now for another big download.

    I still want to know what MRM denotes before installing. I know it's unlikely, but I don't want to risk inadvertently installing a map that isn't for Australia.

    My Octavia never came with the SD for the map, do you need that to be able to update the maps?

    Cheers,

    I've just managed to successfully update my Nav Data to the latest release and it all went smoothly. The file does take forever to download and in my case I managed to raise another two children and put them through university by the time all 20.6 GB dropped down through the ether. To be honest though it was perhaps 15 - 16 hours or so.
    I've no idea what the 'MRM' stands for in the file name but this download aside from Australia does indeed include multiple countries again covering a lot of Africa, South America, Middle East, India, Asia and New Zealand........road trip anyone?
    So there you have it. The second update since I took delivery of my Scout last October and aside from the length of time taken was a pain free experience.

    Great thanks. Have downloaded the file and will install over the weekend. Like you, this is the second update I will be installing since I took delivery of my MY16 car in Nov2015.

    I believe so. Best way to determine is to head to the Skoda update portal and enter your VIN. Then you can determine whether your car qualifies for updates - seems to be a bit hit and miss with some cars not eligible.
