Hello yrktreg, I appear to be a little slow on the draw getting to this string, would there be any chance that you would be able to post a new link?

I'm new to this forum and new to the VW Touareg, I purchased a 2011 TDI Ex line and have been working on getting it up to date, and the Map is one of the big ones.
Thank you Rob
All the files and directions for both firmware and maps are here:

So we still haven't seen the V13 version of the north american maps come out yet.

I'm still hopeful that it could still come.

But rather than charge people for the V12 maps update, I decided to give back the my favorite community.

You will need the following:
0711 firmware or higher
32gb high speed SD card
battery charger and/ or enough fuel to have your vehicle running for 3 hours
a windows PC using the native unzip utility to unzip the folder

The instructions are inside of the zipped folder.

This link is good for ~7 days, i'll keep uploading and posting new links to keep this going...
Enjoy my friends :grin2:

Hello. I’m hoping this is still an active place to find this info. This is what I’m running currently in my 2016 Touareg. I would like to update the maps and any firmware needed. I can’t seem to find a radio model on it. I think it’s an RNS850.
Also while I’m here... do you know of anyway to update the software on the radio so that apple car play is available? Or if it’s even possible?
Thank you in advance!

Is there a changelog or list of changes for the firmware update? I've heard maybe better backup camera performance and other menu options? I don't really use the maps, but am curious what other benefits there are before diving in. Sorry if I missed it, I read through the thread, but didn't see specific changes listed.

Thanks,

Drew

Yes you do have RNS850 (I believe it's the model year 2011 to 2017 came standard with this model). Unfortunately for us in the US there isn't an option to upgrade to adding Android Auto/Apple CarPlay into the factory radio. You'd need to purchase an aftermarket kit (JoyAuto, NaviPlus) and install some additional hardware to make it work.



Check these links out for more info on the smart phone integration into the Treg.

Best of luck!

In the US the Touareg Sport Trim level came with an RCD550 (non-nav). On 7Ps, if the stock radio has a NAV button, it's an RNS850. If it has a CD slot and no NAV button, it's an RCD550.

Pretty sure K0821 is European only, not North America, and as such will bork your unit.

I updated maps and went to firmware version K0821 and something terrible went wrong. Long story short is I lost all the fonts throughout the radio and the satellite radio. Tried reinstalling with no success in fixing this. Tried stepping back to V0711, denied. If anyone can be of assistance it would be much appreciated. Details below:

2013 VW Touareg, located in So Cal
MU Version 0934
Firmware HN+_EU_VW_K0821
Using a VCDS cable for "green screen" access

Thanks,
Brandon

Pacala, as far as I know, K0711 is the latest for us.

Same map set as the software and map set (from yrktreg) I put in my 2012 in July 2019.

Thanks to the forum for keeping this up and going! I just picked up a 2015 TDI last week and it has NAR 6.11.2 maps. I've already had a few instances where the maps were off due to new construction. Hopefully this brings it a little more current. Copying to a 32GB card now and will update later today.

That's good. Should I worry MU Software: 0706 and not 0711?
Thanks for your help, guys.
To be safe, I would update to K0711 before trying to update the maps. There is a MEGA link to the K0711 firmware in Post #5 of this thread. I think that some of the people posting already have the newer firmware. My 2015 has P0735.

Just to clarify, my 2012 Tdi (screenshot above in#294) already had been updated to HN+_US_VW_K0711 by the dealership in January 2015. Upon the recent installation, I assume the firmware stayed the same (same version number) and the navigation database upgraded from version. NAR 5.5.3 (original to our 2012) to NAR 6.16.2 (which is apparently the most current version).

Yes, If you go back to the beginning of the thread, it clearly warns that the RNS850 must be updated to at least K0711 firmware prior to installing this V12 Map pack. The MEGA download for V12 does NOT include the firmware update. That is a separate download, see Post #5 for the K0711 firmware.

BTW, I finished the update to NAR 6.16.2 a little while ago. It went absolutely according the the guide. No problems and it activated easily as well.
