    1) Did you only have the "AUS_6PR053_CT3WS-201H0_Offline_Update" folder on the USB stick?
    2) Did you have to do anything on the screen to start the process?
    3) I always have a USB stick in a USB port from which I run all my music. I wonder if I have to take that out, rather than just leaving it in and adding the map update stick in the other USB port?

    I did say in regard to the maps that it takes about 20mins and YOU WILL NOT SEE ANYTHING HAPPEN.. According to my dealer it isnt possible to do it so SFA asking them. Follow what I said It works as some have found out.

    Thanks Hillbilly.

    I found out why it isn't working for me, through some instructions I found on the USA VW service website. In my case it was partly due to the wrong formatting of the USB stick and partly due to other files on the USB stick (which my Mac put there). The document says:

    • Insert the USB-C Stick into the USB-C port of your computer. If your computer does not have a USB-C port, this can be connected to the computer using a suitable adapter.
    • Delete all files on the USB-C Stick or reformat your USB-C Stick. There should not be any other files on the USB-C Stick.
    • The USB-C stick must be formatted in the "exFAT" or “NTFS” format so that it can be recognized by the Discover Media.

    In addition, the (Mac) OS-X operating system has a tendency to create hidden additional files on external data media. We therefore recommend that OS X users use the “Keka” unzipping program. We also recommend using the “CleanMyDrive” program to remove any hidden files.

    Installing the map material
    1. Insert the USB-C stick into the USB-C port of your vehicle.
    2. Switch on the ignition.
    3. Now select the "MENU" button on the Discover Media. In the “Setup” menu you will find the“System information”, check the installed navigation database version.
    4. Keep ignition ON for at least 30-40 minutes after USB-C stick with navigation database is inserted in the USB-C port of the vehicle. The engine must be on during map update process.
    5. Your car will automatically start downloading the map update in the background and no interaction or consent is required in HMI to initialize map update process.
    6. Switch off your engine then re-start your vehicle after 5-10 minutes to check the installed map database version. Please make sure that there is no active route in navigation system before turning the engine off.

    NOTE:
    The ignition must be left on while the data is being copied. Please ensure that the battery voltage is high enough to carry out the update (when the vehicle is stationary, switch off all electrical equipment that is not required, e.g. lighting, blowers, seat heating etc.). Connect a charger to the vehicle’s battery, if necessary. If the process is interrupted – for example, by parking the vehicle – the copying process automatically continues at the point at which it was interrupted as soon as the ignition is switched on.

    The ONLY problem you have is that you have a devils spawn Apple product. I have updated our Kamiq with a stick that had other stuff on it and done POI on a MIB2 the same. The stick I used is formatted in FAT32 and it worked first time.
    The rest is a rather long winded version of what I said and is incorrect in that it takes about 20 mins for the map update to load.
    Macs and VW have been fairly incompatible for years and if you use one it pays to say so as most use a real PC LOL, that doesnt do stupid things that are built into Apple products.
    My music is on a USB C stick formatted in FAT 32 and has 1200 tracks on it that play perfectly

    The only real difference in the last 11 years is it wasnt a good idea to interrupt a RNS510 when updating, the MIB 2 can be just turned off and will recommence but gives a progress bar, the MIB3 we get is a crippled version of the Euro one and hasnt got the update bar. NONE of them liked maps unzipped in a MAC
