What is the current version of my map?
Please select the main MMI menu to view your current map version.
Go to: Setup MMI
Navigate to Version Information by scrolling down.
Here, under the Nav. Database version, is the most recent version of your map.
My Audi’s current version as of 18 November 2020 is 6.33.1 (Europe!).
How can I prepare an SD CARD with the latest maps?
You will see something like this when you receive download links for maps from myAudi.org:
One by one, download!
When you have all the files, please only use 7zip to open the first one, 7z.001!
Additional files will automatically join!
How can I extract downloaded files? For a detailed guide on how to handle downloaded files, click here.
Put your SD CARD in FAT32 format.
Put a copy of your maps’ directory on the SD card (like picture below).
When you enter the created folder after unpacking the files with maps, you might see something similar to what is seen in the screenshot below.
Do not count the files, etc., because the file list may differ for the EU, USA, and Canada.
Now copy all of those files directly to the SDCARD, omitting any parent folders with names like 6.30.1 or 6.19.1.
Recommended SD CARDs for map updates:
- Samsung EVO
Map updates for Europe and USA/Canada/Mexico require 64GB sdcard.. other regions can use 32GB SD.
How can I delete an outdated nav database?
Removing the previous map is an optional step. However, is strongly advised.
- Avoiding the error Fault Code 03175 – Invalid Data Set
- Don’t make mistakes when duplicating the map (out of size, slow write speed)
- The new map does not contain any files from the old map.

You risk bricking your device if you insert the SD before MMI has finished starting up.
A bricked (dead) MMI device will result from using the improper activator, therefore please double check that you’re using the right licensing for your firmware.
your SD card in FAT32 format.
Copy your license’s root file onto the clear SD card, making sure to format it with FAT32 first!
The license is contained in the license.zip file if you purchased our maps update.
After the last reboot, verify that MMI has started up completely!
(Press the RADIO, CAR, NAV, MEDIA, and TEL buttons all at once.)
Wait for a minute once every choice has been approved (there should be no alternatives in gray).
Maps and the most recent firmware must already be installed.
SD card should be inserted into the first MMI slot.
If everything has been completed as instructed after about 15 seconds, MMI will show you the next steps. Eject the SD CARD and try in the second slot if the first one doesn’t work.
It’s necessary to completely reboot your mmi after maps activation. (Please note that switching the ignition on and off will not restart MMI.)
Unless you perform a firmware update, in which case you might need to install license once more, you won’t need to install maps activation for feature map updates because it will already be stored in firmware memory.
Audi RSE – Rear Seat Entertainment – how to update?
The RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) system in your Audi needs to be upgraded as well. The process is the same as it is for the main MMI unit; there are simply various button combinations.
You can then complete the remaining installation, which resembles that of the front MMI unit. Just be aware that there are several button combinations.
