    January 2018 MMI Maps update for Canadian Vehicles - need some help...

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello,
    I have a 2015 SQ5 technik. The dealer confirmed the update was not done when I took delivery last week and I did see there was a thread here confirming that the January 2018 update was able to be done to Canadian Vehicles.....


    My question is, how!?!
    Are we able to use the myaudiusa website, or is there a Canadian Portal?
    What info is needed for log-in access?

    Are the instructions simple for doing this wireless?
    Not concerned about data - I realize that thereís a long process. Thatís ok.

    Perhaps the Canadian guys who contributed to the MMI update thread can advise how they gained access to perform this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I downloaded the installer through myaudi(USA). After running the Java installer you choose an SD card as the installation destination. When finished, put the SD card in MMI and perform a Map update. I can send you the installer file tomorrow if you could not get it.

    You can get map updates via the myAudi (USA)?

    Yes, register here: https://www.audiusa.com/myaudi#/
    Then you can download the jnlp installer and download the MAP update. You can download maps for any country (or all of them), it does not need to be Canada or US.

    Looks like my Canadian VIN# doesnít like the myaudiconnect website.... ďvehicle not foundĒ to get the subscription.
    Unless no subscription is needed....?

    Happy to go for a rip in the SQ for maps help :-)
    Even in the winter, this thing is nuts.

    Registered on the USA side, just selected a 2011 S4 (I don't think the maps are compatible with the 2010), tried the download, access forbidden!

    Is this really a way to update older Audis?
    I couldn't even see a download tab after selecting the Audi Connect Services tab. It took my VIN OK though but had to lie about my location.

    I'm guessing not. Audi, MB and BMW acquired HERE from Nokia a few years back and using their digital maps.

    I got the latest file using the 'Canadian' myaudi site. Once registered you can find the map downloads under the 'Audi connect' menu (I don't have Audi connect, its just the place I found the maps).
    When I got my car in 2015 I was able to access the US site but it changed over the years and now I have to use the new site.

    I registered via the Canadian link and I don't see anything available for download from the Audi Connect tab. All I see is my vehicle then Vehicle Details and My Service.

    Thanks for the downloader. I got to the start of the download, made sure I was logged in to myAudi USA (had to delete my Canadian profile), and it asked for my email and password to start the download. Now I can't get any further. It just keeps popping up the password request. So close!

    This happened to me once before. It got fixed the day after (no idea why!). Probably the server was down at that time.
    Just make sure you can login with the same credentials in myAudi website.

    I log in OK on myAudi then go straight to the downloader and still no joy. I'll keep trying.

    Still no luck. I get different reasons now though. Access forbidden - Authenticate via login screen, time outs and login screen just pops back up.

    I believe the reason is that only the newer Audi's can receive the maps due to licensing. BMW, MB and Audi bought out a company that used to be part of Nokia a few years ago and thinking that updates are now "free".

    Prior to this, map updates for the older MMI systems are not part of this and still not free due to the licensing.

    I guess I'll wait until I replace the car to get a map upgrade then. Or use my phone or lifetime Garmin that I bought about 8 years ago!

    All those that cannot get the free update can always contact member Philip0001 in Vaughan. He did my 08 A5 2g high firmware and map update a few years ago. Very inexpensive and quick.

    My B8 S5 is a toy for me. It's sits in my garage all winter.

    After reading these forums, and learning about Phil, I contacted him. (He was great BTW) Over a few days, when I could get to it, Phil helped me via email to fully update the MMI.

    You probably have to be a little technically inclined to get it done without Phil watching over your shoulder. But it's easily do able. This is my first Audi, and I managed to get it done correctly on the first attempt.

    I'd you happen to be reading this, Phil. Thanks again.
