Here's the newest available map update for the RNS850 Australia Region:

1. You can't find this archive anywhere in the internet, cause it's made by myself. It's a simple Audi MMI3GP conversion.
2. Databases are 100% identical with VW standard. There is no ingeration in originality of the databases.
3. This package is CHECKED. There was a successful upload.
4. Don't use Green Menu, You need to use User Defined method.
5. Don't ask how to upload it into Your RNS. There's answer for that in the internet.
6. If Your map won't work after 3-4 minutes after the update don't panic. It means You need to activate it. This scripts slays process which checks if the maps are activated. Here, it will make Your maps work:

or unblocker from DrGER:

7. Please RESHARE. If You've downloaded it and it's working, upload it to any possible server to share with other people. Even You can post alternative links in here. Don't let other people to earn money on this.
8. Have no knowledge if TMC works, but it should.
9. If someone is successful with updating, please don't be shy and let us know. If it fails, also please send a post.
10. It looks like AN (australian) firmwares are identical with ECE (european) ones. It works for P0824 nad K0821. It won't work with old firmwares.
11. If You don't know what to do please ask for help. No shame in it, but don't be lazy.
12. Ths map is from 2021. The newest means there's no other higher available version. Probably there won't be any.
13. Don't use MacOS to extract or upload Your files onto SD Card!
14. When You'll have 03623 or 03276 errors in 5F module after the update I can help fix them (one of them requires VCDS).

This is how to solve one error:

This is how to solve the other:

15. Use solid SD Card, not a microSD with adapter.
16. Here's P0824 firmware (for ROW - Rest of World and ECE - Europe only):

This is how the Australian maps look like after the update (Thx to @Steve_L):

This is the system information You get after making a successful maps update:

P.S. Feel free to ask me any questions (except for stupid ones).

Thanks OP!

I was game enough to try this today, no issues. Used a USB rather than SD card, took about 15 minutes.

Sure Steve.

Copy the contents of the RNS850 8R0060884HS folder to the root of your USB stick, then just follow the PDF linked in post 5 (except select USB instead of CD/DVD). Slight difference to page 7 where it says click 'Continue', mine showed 'Next'. Does the same thing though and takes you to the last screen where you click 'Cancel Documentation' and you're done!

Don't do this update yet!

After working just fine for a few minutes, I'm now getting a navigation not activated message. Hopefully there's a way to activate this map update...

I've tried one activation, the script method which I found on Форум Touareg Club. It ran and rebooted but the map is still not activated.
No luck so far. I've updated the firmware to 824, but since then I can't seem to get the activators to run.

Haven't given up just yet though...

Turns out that the copy of P0824 firmware would not run any scripts, so I re-installed a different copy of 824 and found an activator that ran straight away. Maps have stayed functional since then.

Thanks to @Lysy for putting these maps together.

@Lysy Yes I can calculate a route and 'Special Destinations' is not empty.
