Re: Problem updating Navigation map

Hi all

I'm new to the forum but hoping someone can help who may have worked out how to update the maps.

I have followed the instructions on the Update Portal and downloaded the files via Safari using an iMac which seems to give me two main folders -Mib1 and Mib2. The instructions say "Open the first file in the folder with the downloaded data and extract into the SD card".

Daft question I know but which folder am I supposed the be extracting to the SD card - is it the whole of the Mib1 folder or am I meant to open that and then transfer the contents of this folder? To be honest I've tried both and get an error message every time saying "ERROR: No data available. Please insert a source with software update data or check the source".

I am using a SanDisk Ultra SDHC1, 32GB, 80 mb/s SD card which has been formatted to MS-DOS (FAT32) format. I see some other comments about updating the SKODA-supplied SD card but, as I couldn't find one, I contacted my dealer who said that as this is a Columbus system I don't need one.

Has anyone else had the same problem and found a solution they can share?

My local dealer has offered to update the maps for me but I don't want to have to rely on this every time.

Have a look at the notes I posted to share the method that worked for me. The crucial pint seems to be reusing the Skoda Sd card.
