Here is the update file for the Audi Navigation plus system. Works only with the DX Version. Some of the new functions are:

-50m Zoom
-destination possible with GPS Data

Here are some pictures of the new function:

Here is the link for the update file:

Extract the files with Winzip to your harddrive. The files has 2.3MB compressed and 131MB uncompressed. Burn it e.g. with Nero.
Iso image, disc at once, no multisession and not faster than 24x
eject the navigation CD and turn the system off
wait 10 seconds
press the button Navigation and the button on the top of the right side (beside where you put in the navigation CD)
insert the update cd
start the update with the option start unit

We take no response for any failure. Never turn off the unit during the update. Never put in the naviagtion cd if update is canceled, don´t worry you can start the update procedure as often you want.

Have fun!

I updated the software to the Nov 2001 version using the following link I got a similar problem, eventually after turning it on and off a few times, ejecting and reinserting the map CD it seemed to sort itself out.

I have noticed though it seems to be a bit more flakey than the earlier version. i.e. If I press a few buttons while on the navigation screen I can get it to lock up with the egg timer on screen, but then I havn't read the user manual yet :lol:

One other thing, after doing the first part of the install it didn't reboot iteself so I powered it on manually to complete the update. Tried a few times but no joy, thought sh*t! its bust it. Turned out when you power it on you have to hold down the Navigation button and the flag button again.

Good luck!!!
You're correct - after turning it on and off a few times, it finally started to work.

But, my version was May, 2002 before, and now it is Nov, 2001 - does anyone know if that is bad??? Also, it still has not fixed my "real" problem, and that is I continue to get the message that I am not on a "digitized street" and do not get street names on my display.
I thought the Nov 2001 was the latest one. Do you know what the software version number was before?

I've also posted in your other post regarding Digisted Streets!
The version number was 0104, dated may, 2002 - which is what came on my Nav Plus from

Mine came w/ the May 2002 version as well. Seems to me that 2002 is newer than 2001 so I don't see any need to "update"
So does this update work or no?

Sounds like it starts to work but is sketchy?
The Nov01 update is very stable. It's the only one I use. I've updated over 50 units with it.

tried 8x finalized and un finalized. 4x same deal. two different types of CD

No luck. the update screen never shows the CD version.

I'll try a few more CDs. good thing they're cheap. any thoughts?
the newest update i've seen is september 10, 2003. though i havent been able to find the update files. one of our users Lee has this firmware on his nav+. i am currently running the may17 2002 version and it has been extremely stable.
According to my update screen I'm running Jun 2000 IIRC
2002 and 2203 updates didn't bring new features. Main changes were made on foreign language comments. 11/2001 is the only usefull update.

Try to use this link :
This is a prepared Nero Image. Burn it with Nero. I used Memorex, 4X speed.
do you have the 2003 update file? i am not looking for the 2001 version.
It'd be cool if there were confirmed images somewhere here for download
