Map updates 2018

Post by h2onorth » Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:17 am

As you all know the long awaited update is now at dealerships.
Has anyone else suffered the irritation if not annoyance of the update being done incorrectly?
Apparently it is a 2 stage process. 1 The software on your head unit gets updated by dealership memory card being inserted where your map card currently sits. After that your map card has to be updated with the latest map before being replaced in the slot. One might assume someone checks if it has been done ,No it seems not.
Stage 2 for me was not done despite being told by servicing desk, twice, that it had been.
My map version is still the same as when the car was delivered. I await an apology and another unnecessary visit to dealership. Should I make a written complaint

I took delivery of my Niro 2 on March 9th 2017 and had the head Unit and maps updated on May 2nd 2017.

These are the file numbers

I am having my car updated next week and would like to check before I leave the dealers that I have the latest files installed.

I would be grateful if a NIRO 2 owner who has had the latest updates would post the new file numbers for me to check against

Hi AlanHo. My new firmWare and navigation app refs are as below, but of course my map refs are wrong.
I would like know correct map refs as well
h2onorth
software XXX EUR.SOP.005.9.180306
firmware XXX EUR.0.5.250.180110.MICOM
navigation app STD_AVN_MID.EUR.KMC.170927.a803344
Map reference left off as it's still original

I have the same maps as Splang too, updated in May. I have totally different software and firmware though, as I have MY17 (which isn't in the software or firmware name).
