    So I bought a used 2014 A4 Se Technik. I got it home and noticed that the firmware for the MMI was out of date and so were the maps. I phoned up to see how much it would cost for them to update the maps or if they could do it as a courtesy as I'd just bought the car. The wee sales rep came back, I'll give him his due he was shocked as well, to tell me they can't do it as a courtesy but the SD card with the new maps on it was around 400 quid, then he told me if I wanted the garage to do it they wpould also charge 102 for labour!!! They can go take a f**k to themselves. Apparently they'll only update the firmware if they do a recall?

    Thats why i've signed up here, is there anyone in the area who can do this? This is what showing just now, I don't have the console with the sim card slot but I do have two sd card slots..mmiaudi.jpg.

    I'm in the wishaw area.

    You can buy the SD cards on ebay. I have the DVD type (MMI 2G) and bought a disk off ebay. Worked a treat. I think the SD version will be equally as simple. Certainly cheaper than what you've been quoted.

    I bought the updates for my A5 and A7 off a seller on eBay. They took my current versions and car model/year and send some SD cards. Worked a treat and substantially cheaper than Audi!

    I got the map update and firmware from another forum, free. Updated them both this morning and they're working a treat. Obviously I can't post another forum here but if anyone wants the info give me a shout. Next I'm going to see if I can get Audi connect working on it

    If you google 6.26.1 you’ll find the 2018 maps
