USA RNS850 Map update V12

Anyone interested in a map updated loaner program?

You pay a deposit $350 (cost of new) for the maps and activator SD cards, and a small fee say $50 for the update for a week, and $25 for each additional week if needed.

When the cards are returned you get your refund back, and are only charged the $50 or more if you had it for more than a week.

The other thing I could do is a group purchase where people pay the $50 for the updates and I can provide a link for the map and activator downloads.
Note that the activator needs to be ordered by each vehicle...

What do you guys and gals like best?

It sure does. I will send you a message with my email and cellphone number.

I just need you to get some information from your RNS850 for me

Why can't you just offer to send someone the SD cards for a fee which would also cover your shipping costs/sd card costs and they can keep em. You keep your original ones.
Not sure how many people feel comfortable w/a $350 refundable deposit fee.

That's why I was also thinking the download option.
That way people can use their own SD cards for the update and then use them for whatever after the fact.

Saves me from having to burn and ship cards all over and people having SD cards that they may never use again

The DL option is a great idea. I've seen others post this in other threads but it requires you to sign in to the file hosting site to which I had no luck.
I read other threads at length and someone posted a link to a guy on a popular auction site selling genuine VW software and map updates and the activation code on SD cards with instructions on how to use them. I just purchased them and will see how they do.
He only has one left and I can't post links for another 2 posts or so, otherwise I would link it.

Let me know when you need to erase the error codes that you and he get

My maps are also the genuine article. That's one thing I didn't want to mess with...
