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updated could you post what was involved please, hopefully I can then take that information to VW to get my 3 year out of date maps only 1 year out of date.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