Default 2019 Map Updates Now Available on MyAudi

For those that have been waiting, the full 2019 map download appear to now be available (for at least NA) on the https://my.audi.com/ site, if you wanted more than the 2-3 regions/states that you are able to install OTA.

I was looking for this just just last week I believe and nothing. Planing a couple of trips so this is perfect. Thanks for taking the time to post!

For anyone who doesn't know / remember the ins and outs of this process, here is a great step-by-step written by another member:

The new nav update is out. I’ve seen update instructions several places but not everything in one place. Here is a concise step by step of how to update your maps from the internet for Audi owners. I did this on a Mac, Windows may be a little different.

1) Get a 32 Gig SD memory card. Mine cost $20.
2) Go to My Audi site, https://www.audiusa.com/myaudi. Log in.
3) Click on the “Audi connect services” icon (below the car).
4) On the services tab, click the right arrow to scroll to “Map update.” Click on it.
5) You can choose “Complete package” or “Individual country.” Your choice. I chose complete package.
6) Put you SD card in your computer. Alternately, you can load the map files to your hard drive. Click on “prepare package” at the bottom.
7) This will download a file called “downloader” with a bunch of numbers after the word.
8) You need the latest version of Java. It will prompt you if needed.
9) On the Mac, I needed to go into my security settings to allow the downloader file to open.
10) It will open with a Java screen, followed by a Download client window that says “my Audi.” It asks you to choose a folder location for the files. Pick a location on your hard drive or SD card and click to go.
11) The download starts and is tracked in the Download client window. The size of the files is 10.6 gig. It took about 2 hours to download on my computer.
12) Once the files are downloaded, transfer them to your SD card if you didn’t load them direct. There will be two files “0231001C.md5”, “metainfo2.txt” and two folders “Mib1” and Mib2”. All are needed.
13) Go to your car. You can do this while you are driving or stationary but the car must be on (not necessarily running but on). I did it in my garage.
14) Stick the SD card into the SD1 slot in your glove box.
15) In your MMI, go to Main menu>>Settings. Push the MMI scroll wheel to the left, it brings up a menu that says “MMI setup” and “System update.” Pick “System update.”
16) Pick SD1 (i.e. where you put your SD card) and press the MMI button to select.
17) The nav update will start and inform you of progress on the MMI screen. My update took about 20 minutes to load in my car.

Lots of steps but really pretty easy. I hope this helps. Enjoy your new maps.
Thanks to the Original Poster - FPF - for this very detailed process.

Does this work even if one has let the initial subscription expire? OTA I am getting max download exceeded on OTA update.

When I go to Map update on myAudi, they state that "The first five updates for the Audi connect map update are free of charge to you". However, when I click the Further information link, they state that "You can download and install updates as many times as you like".

So I can only update my maps for free five time? Or as many times as I want?

I wonder if they mean the first five update releases are free (free updates for five years), but that you can install each update an unlimited number of times.

Exactly right. But the FREE 5 Upgrades will only take you through two and a half years as the updates are released twice a year. And whether or not you downlaod them every 6 months -- the offer is only good for 2.5 years. This was in another thread that was posted quite awhile ago, unless Audi has had a change of heart.

Geez. Another reason to use Car Play and not bother getting used to the built-in maps...
