Lhughes593 Well if you wind up having to pay for something like an SD or update I can buy it off you when you are done..Or halves or something. Be over there in a couple of weeks.

ackman Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

Lhughes593 Exactly...

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?

Lhughes593 Of course not, who pays 899 Euro for a GPS Update...sheesh

... The RNS 850 unit has to be sent to our head office! ... Remove the drive - Place the order online - Ship the drive with a copy of the order ...

Here is a solution, expensive though.

Zed1963 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

ackman Zed,

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

Zed1963 hi,

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.
