|ackman||Ouch. Garmin plus European update, less than 250 dollars. That'll work until we get back to the states. Besides, what else am I going to use that little cubby on the dash for?|

there is no legal way to update the maps for the rns 850 doing it by yourself. the rns is equivalent to the Audi MMI 3G.
You must buy a sd-card with the new materiel for about 230 Euros and bring the t to your dealer. he also has to buy an sd-card called "activation-pack". after the update there must be an online-activation / authorisation with the dealers sd-card and volkswagen ...
the new plan against map-piraqcy ...
the actual maps in germany are over 2 years old ! last week i used the highway Frankfurt -> Eisenach called "A4". In january 2010 (!) they opened a 25 km long new track - it is not shown in my car, manufactured in June 2011

That's what I thought too. You would think that it would be as easy as uploading a map DVD or SD card. I checked with Audi as well, no luck. Funny, cause I updated my garmin with a 50 dollar SD card

a local vw-dealer must be able to help you. The RNS 850 has all maps world-wide "onboard". It's just a little coding with a vcds to change the maps from Northern America to Europe.
