More Satnav Map Update Problems

Post by Anteca » Sat Nov 10, 2018 3:43 pm

OK so, with my Ateca's second service due soon, I thought I'd take the plunge and update the maps. Downloaded successfully, followed the instructions, backed up the car SD card, deleted the only folder there (maps), copied the newly downloaded folder (maps) onto the SD card, bunged it back in the Ateca and... "No Map Data Found" (or some such).

Panic.

Put the original folder back on the SD card, rebooted the entertainment/satnav system, put the SD card back in its slot and held my breath. Satnav recognised the old maps. Phew! So what did I do wrong? Thinking back, should I have rebooted the system before putting the SD card with the new maps in? Only occurred to me later, but I'm wary of going through the trauma again. Any advice? I may be strange but I'm happy with the satnav and don't want to be without it, though I'd like up to date maps.

You need to do everything you did earlier then copy from your backup this file
MAPS/EEC/EEC_WLD/OVERALL.NDS to your SD card.
You might want to backup your updated card to a new file too, I keep a copy of every update (just in case)
BTW the maps are due another update quite soon, what version are you updating to?
1030 is the current version.

Thanks Bedlam, do you know why this has to be done? No mention of it in the Here instructions! They make out its straightforward but it seems anything but! I have seen elsewhere that 1030 is the latest version, but the Here website gave me 0915_MP171-1284.xEUR1. Maybe I'm getting this from the wrong place?

It's the link to your vehicle, the "Here" website is not the best
I will post a better link later or tmw

Many thanks. Why do things have to be so complicated?

Because the manufacturer wishes you to have the maps upgraded at the dealership would be my guess.

Sorry can't find a link to the next update yet....probably not out yet, but forget "Here", instead check out Audi, VW, Skoda update sites

Out of interest I asked my dealer if they would update the maps at the service last year and he put me onto the Here update site!

Cheers Bedlam. Any particular link you can suggest, for a 2017 Ateca with standard Satnav (not plus)?
