So I have a 2016 TDI with current software version HN+_US_VW_P0737 and MU Software 0933, how can I check what map NAR version I have? Thanks!I purchased one of the RNS850 map updates from VAG-TECHNIK in the UK that is currently being offered for sale on E-Bay. The kit being sold as a package has a P0711 firmware update and a version 12 NAR map update.
My 2014 Touareg R-Line TDI RNS850 navigation system that I own already has a more advanced firmware (HN+_US_VW_P0726 and MU Software 0783). I contacted them directly and only purchased the NAR map update. The cost of the map update was 101.98 British pounds including the 10 pounds freight or $188.65 Canadian dollars (roughly $146.00 USD).
I received two VW original SD cards by mail and comprehensive installation instructions (file attached). I connected a battery charger to the Touareg during the update process and the charger provided approximately 4 12V amps during the entire process. The instructions indicated that the process could take 80 to 90 minutes to upload the maps. My actual time required 127 minutes or just over two hours.
The authorization SD only took a minute to update and then I was complete. It did take about 15 minutes and a reboot to get the satellites online and routing functioning.
Before the update my map was NAR 6.9.2 (8R0060884BL) and post update my map is NAR 6.16.2. I have noticed significant upgrades to streets, highways and POIs (The new VW dealer location has been updated).
Very pleased with the result!
Try these guys - https://jku.com.au/2016-volkswagen-touareg-map-update-rns-850-navigation-service-oem-firmware-3400.htmlI am a 2016 Touareg owner in Australia and incenced that our dealers are price gouging on map updates also AU$450 for an updated SD card (RNS850). Do you know of another source? I am on version 5.8.6 and although I am aware of a new version being available I don't know the current version. Do you?
My 850 do DAB+ without mods.Hi iSagen, fellow viking
Downloaded, unpacked and getting ready for upgrade. Recently upgraded to K0821 which fixed a lot of BT issues, but looking forward to this one. A quick question as you mention firmware mods: do you have any link or documentation for different mods and possibilities? I'm wondering if I'll add a data SIM card just to see how it works with WIFI AP in the car (without removing the option for BT which I've seen commented in several forums).
Also, my RNS 850 has DAB but not DAB+ which of course is a pain in the a** in Norway as FM is shut down. Have you done the DAB+ upgrade on your unit? Specifically the DAB+ radiotuner for VW Touareg 7P at bilkomponenter.no site.
Hi iSagenMy 850 do DAB+ without mods.
As far as I know BT Handsfree stops working with SIM-card inserted. I use a SIM-card for Google Earth, so no BT Handsfree.

Remember that the Here maps offered up to VW/Audi are generally 18 months old before release. If you need current mapping than looking at a mobile device is the only answer.With so many projects happening in Melbourne (ie. Westgate Tunnel and the new underground railway lines), not sure when maps will be upgraded to contain these.
Not sure if it is worth upgrading the current maps until these two projects are completed.
