    Map updates - Discover Pro

    Just wondering if anyone has used the map updates available at navigation.com

    This appears to be a factory-supported distribution point, but before I go updating I was interested if anyone had any information on this provider.
    Cheers

    That's the official VW update portal.
    Or you can use the new DiscoverCare tool on the UK website which does some of the steps for you as was found by superuser DV52:

    Good info, thanks dude

    I've already downloaded the compressed package (100mbs FTTP has to be good for something, right?), so will pop it onto an SD card and trial it on my wifes car before updating mine

    Just make sure you have the correct package as the update is different for Discover Media (7GB) compared to Discover Pro (20GB).
    If you have the wrong one it won't find anything on the card to update...

    Thanks for the tip mate. Thankfully we have pro in both our cars, so hopefully reduces the chances of user-error

    May 2017 Updates available; VW_APAC_Pro_MIB2_New

    Has anyone actually done this?
    Does it take the 4hrs to update on the car as stated?

    I have completed the download and have on an SD Card ready to complete tomorrow.

    My current version is VO39598O1E OO49 ROW 2015/2016 (as per what is in the car now).

    I was getting worried when the files were being copied over to the SD Card as it was coming up with Argentina / South Africa etc. (a well Australia) - then I realised it was for ROW - Rest of World, so should be ok?

    Am I missing something here, is there a way to back up what I already have?
    As I have no SD Card with this sat nav details on?
    Is it just pre-installed on the hard drive of the Discover Pro?

    Yes you just overwrite what is on the flash storage on your discover pro unit you can't back up your current maps.

    I did the updates last night on both cars. Took a few minutes per vehicle. In the update tool I elected to only download the Aus/NZ update package - I can't see either of my vehicles being used abroad during my period of ownership

    Total size of the update package was ~800MB on the SD card. My wifes Passat (B8 Comfortline) was V 2016, my Alltrack Wolfsburg was V2017, however the update still applied as the software on the card was newer than what was on the vehicle.

    No differences noticed thus far, but I am now happy to know that latest map data is applied to both vehicles.

    Such a simple process (THANK YOU VW!) that my intention at this stage is to perform the update on the 6-monthly release cycle of the updated software versions.
    Cheers

    That's good to know that the tool doesn't make you download the whole row2 map set.
