Maps (Europe & Rusia) - Download / Update

Post by liben96 » Wed Feb 17, 2021 9:05 am

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if it is possible to download the maps for our velar from the internet? My license will expire in a few days. Im currently downloading the last version (Europe & Russia), but I would like to know if it is possible to download it from any other places (it is possible for Audi, VW, etc).

LR already sent me an email to renew my license (around 300 Euros just to get an update...)

How do you guys do it? :)

I think you can ask someone who has a valid license upload it to a cloud drive and download it from there!

I think the files might be tied to the VIN used to download?

I haven't tested if the map is tied to a VIN, never tried to do any security audit to the apps and software, I have to drive it.. but I can certainly say that it takes days to download the 33Gigabytes, sometimes gets to 20Mbps, sometimes to 10, 5..and for sure two or three connection losts.. nevermind if you are wired to your fiber router, on a good wifi..it's a pain in the a$$ :-(

Definitely agree. It takes ages to download. The juice is not woth the squeeze. This is one of reasons (the price being the most important) I gave up subscription

I takes me less than 2 hours to download, but I really don't need the whole of Europe and Russia - It would be far better if individual countries could be selected for download.....

Then comes the 30-minute upload from the USB stick to the car - has anyone found a way to leave the ignition on without the engine running? As soon as I open and close the door to leave the upload to happen, the car goes to sleep, so I have to leave the engine running.....
