RSN850 Australian map updates

Putting the question to anyone with a 2011 plus Touareg with the RNS850 navigation system (in Australia please)....has anyone been able to get a map update from their dealer yet?
Version 6 Australian/New Zealand maps are now hitting dealers for the RNS510 Satnav and after contacting several dealers in Sydney I am still getting a run around with their lack of any knowlegde on how to conduct a map update (it appears the RNS510 disc is not able to load into the RNS850 without an activation code, the so called activation code even VW Australia knows nothing about).

If anyone managed to get their maps updated could you post what was involved please, hopefully I can then take that information to VW to get my 3 year out of date maps only 1 year out of date.

Of interest was the statement from a VW dealer when inquiring about a map update, "Why would you need to update your maps if they work alright now?" I'll leave my comment to everyone imagination.

Finally received a reply from VW Australia in reference to updated mapping data;
"Unfortunately there is no update available for the RNS850 as yet, there is an update for the RNS510 but this will not be compatible for the RNS850. We advise keeping in contact with your local dealership as to when the update will be available, however we do not have any information on when the update will be available at this time."

So stuck with 1st Q 2010 maps with no sign of this being fixed in the near future, no thank you, time to make some noise

FD, it would be interesting if you were asking the same questions at Audi.
Audi may infact be able to help as hardware of RNS850 is Audi MMI hardware.

I had my 2011 in today for a service to fix the engine light, the ACC and a map update. They quoted $852 for the map update.

I told them Ned Kelly was hunted down and shot. If they keep this line up they could be next!

This is total extortion and I won't pay that .

That's why it is called a RSN850, really **** nav for $850. Keep the old maps, surely the updates won't affect you.

So they had my car for the day, did they fix the ACC? no, Did they fix the Engine light? no.

They had the car all day today. None of the above fixed. VW service is crap. And I have found a company that will update the RNS 850 for 75% less than VW.

They charged me $185 for wiper blades. VW lift your game, love the car, but you are really testing me....

That's disgusting. It's this sort of thing that will leave a very sour taste in my mouth when it happens to me, which I have no doubt it will sooner or later…

Pls tell where you get the cheap RNS850 maps upgrade - might be worth it at that price!
Cheers.
