Can you run the update if you have an iPhone plugged into the car for AA at the same time, or can no other USB port be in use when updating the maps?

The update instructions provided by @jwq2 say no other devices should be plugged into other USB ports.

*
This should give 2 files, a .dct file (license) and a .bin file (map)
  • place the 2 files on root of USB stick
  • start engine, switch off auto start/stop
  • place stick in USB port car. Don't use usb port in rear, as this is power only
  • make sure there are no other devices in any of the other USB ports
  • select <settings> <system> <maps update>
  • update should start, takes approx 70 minutes on "old" 1st gen hardware, 30 minutes on "new" 2nd gen.

Good to see still nothing on the maps front for Oceania. At least TomTom Amigo using AA kinda looks like the factory system

Does anyone have recent eu maps (10xx) for the 8.8" screen downloaded and willing to share? I still have the original 2016 v.971 maps in mine. Have updated infotaiment successfully to fw. 2.010.41. Otherwise map update only available via dealer anymore.

i was able to update with AA connected.
it says update take about 1hr and i left the car running while i was getting 1st covid19 shot.
took about 30 minutes to get to vaccine site + 30minutes for me to get back to the car from getting vaccine.
when i came back, it was done.

It’s 21,6gb dct file and 1 kB bin file. I use a 32gb Memory stick.
it should be the other way round, 1 kb dct file, and a large bin file.
On my "old" European system the mapfile is around 11 Gb .....

Assuming you just made a mistake listing, the mapfile still seems quite big.... Maybe someone with a new system can chip in
For European cars, you will probably get more response on the UK forum here, seeing as that you seem to be in Europe :
