I just bought and installed the 2021 maps and MMI update. I think my original map was 2016. Don't know if it's any better yet as i have not had a chance to go anywhere. I do know that on my original map when i drove to Newcastle that on a few occasions my sat-nav thought i was driving through a field. This was because they have upgraded the A1M and needed to install some new sections of road. The next time i go there i should know if my update is any better.

6.31.1 are 2020/21 maps (so the 'half way through the year' update) - same map my S5 has installed.

The maps files are available online from various hooky sources, but require an activation file as well. Mostly when done once you don't need to re-activate for future map updates.

@H-M3 - I can still help you out with yours

Not sure when Audi are stopping updates for these systems, as I'd expect full 2021 maps to have been out since October '20 but suspect they've not released.

Default Help needed

Just when i thought my update was going so well !. Everything works ok with my new update and my map now shows the new roads near to where i live. But i have a problem and i only found out by sitting in the back of my car. My RSE ( rear seat entertainment ) also needs updating as it must use a separate navigation system. The rear passengers can set destinations in the nav then transfer the route to the driver in the front. Also the rear passengers can take full control of the media system and play/watch whatever they want.
The problem is that my new update disks don't seam to be compatible with the RSE. Does anyone know if i require different update disks ? Also my RSE shows on it's display that it has its own SD card slot, does anyone know where i would find this and is this the slot that i would use to update the system ?

Hi Darren

It looks like you need to run a separate update on the RSE - possibly using the same files you already have on SD card?

There's button presses to use in the back outlined at the link below:

https://upgrademyaudi.net/tutorials/...-audi-mmi/#rse

ETA - I think the RSE units themselves have SD card slots for playback, but I'm betting you just need to have the files in the front SD card slot for it to recognise them as being there when you do the button presses to get into the red engineering menu from the rear seats

Wow; that was quick!

Yes, that's what the road system is like now.

I presume that's the 2021 map but I don't recognise the mapping format; I presume the S5 is different than the A8?

Thanks - Julian

Mineís a B8 S5 so thatís MMI 3G rather than 3G+

I couldnít find a way to get to the junction apart from by scrolling across the map with the tiny thumb mouse on top of the click wheel 😂

They are 2021 maps on it

A quick final note to say that I acquired the 2021 maps and they are successfully installed and showing the Ashford map layout as above ...
