    Maps and POIs for Discover Media

    The "2015" version of ROW (rest of world) maps is available for download from Navteq. It is a 4.5gb download that takes between 12 to 24 hours on a typical home connection. The actual installation process (decompressing, backing up existing map data, copying new data, installation) takes 2-4 hours on a typical PC.

    Please read the following before choosing to do this upgrade:
    0. The update only works if you have a V2 card (see below). V1 owners are out of luck. Sorry.
    1. This upgrade is at your own risk (duh!). Remember to back-up your data before beginning.
    2. The VW SD card must be re-used. The card itself is the copy protection. You can not use another SD card.
    3. Don't ask your $stealership about this update. They will either not know anything about it, be unwilling to help you, or ask for $1000+ to buy the new maps.
    4. There are 3 versions of VW maps: USA, Europe and ROW (rest of world). Don't expect to see anything on the VW Australia website.

    To download the maps we're going to go to the SOUTH AMERICA VW maps website:
    VW_Landing_SA

    choose discover media. Download the map files from here:
    VW_Discover_Media_SA

    Update instructions are available here:
    VW_Discover_Media_PDF_SA

    To see what version you have press MENU, SETTINGS, System information:
    Maps and POIs for Discover Media-fullsizerender-jpg

    On the root directory of your map SD card is a file called DbInfo.

    IF you see the following you have a V1 card. STOP. The update will not work. Sorry.
    V1 cards have the following DbInfo file. You can see the 022 in the system information screen.
    PartNumber2="5G0919866A "
    PartNumber3="5E0919866A "
    PartNumber4="5F0919866A "
    ApplicationSoftwareVersionNumber="0022"
    SystemName=" ROW 2013 "

    V2 version: (Same maps as V1)
    PartNumber2="5G0919866G "
    PartNumber3="5E0051236D "
    PartNumber4="5F0919866G "
    ApplicationSoftwareVersionNumber="0027"
    SystemName=" ROW 2014 "

    Here is the same from the new version:
    PartNumber2="5G0919866R "
    PartNumber3="5E0051236H "
    PartNumber4="5F0919866L "
    ApplicationSoftwareVersionNumber="0031"
    SystemName=" ROW 2015 "

    If you're in Sydney and would like help with this or VCDS coding (activate your traffic) send me a PM. Bring beer

    Enjoy!

    What's new in "2015" maps?

    UPDATE: This does not work with V1 SD cards (early 2012/2013 Models)

    Auto zoom fixed?? -- Nope. Still jumps around.
    Voice pronunciation improvement?? No - still crappy Uk pronunciation. (Text to speech files have been updated however)
    Latest maps??

    Stay tuned to find out!

    "Road" still pronounced 're-yewd'

    It's a map upgrade, not voice I'm guessing (Would be great to be wrong!)

    I'm going to have to wait for someone with V1 maps to test this out.

    Great news, thanks for sharing mate.
    Will definitely be doing this update, will be interested to see if there is much change apart from streets.

    Thanks for that — going to try it on V1 map card when (and if...) the download finishes.

    Wish I could duplicate the card, tho'. Haven't found anything that'll do it as yet.

    I think the Chinese can do it, but have yet to discover how.

    I'm downloading it now, in the name of the downloading file is ROW. I'm assuming its Rest Of World ?
