    Maby a stupid question.

    Is it possible that i copy a old backup on the virgin card en do the v8 update by download manager to software version v8 ?


    I have update my original card this afternoon in the download manager to version v8.
    when i place the orginal card in the cardreader from my computer en start the download manager then i get the message activate it first in the car before you can use the download manager.

    I have make of course a copy from the original SDCARD before i place it in my car & go to test it this evening in a CLA with the virgin 32GB SDCARD

    Yes it's possible.
    I've made this on my two cloned cards.
    After the upgrade every card need to be married with the car before you can use the download manager.
    But the download manager don't show any update for the map... there are something wrote in the card that prevent upgrade after 60 days from the first actication.

    I've also a cloned card (samsung evo 64gb) with same CID and label.
    (My car have more than 60 days).
    That's why I say do not use the MD download manager until you're sure there's a map upgrade. At that point reset the backup and re-enable the card in the car and then try to upgrade in the MB download manager.

    Theoretically MB Download Manager must register the activation date of the card, if we have reset and never tried the upgrade in principle will be considered within 60 days.

    PS - I have upgrade V5 software to v6 then to 6.1 then back to v6 and now to v8 ... the maps unfortunately got in V5 because I still had thought of the subject and I used MB download Manager several times before there is a New version of maps and possibly no map update in 60 days.

    I just managed to update the software the maps remain at V5.
    Mercedes is probably distributing the software V8 gradually by countries, it is probably not yet available in your country.

    I think that's the reason why you still do not have the software V8 available. According to Mercedes the software update is free and supposedly forever. As long as the version fits on the 32GB cards !!!

    I do not know if the availability is made by IP address or if something is analyzed in garmindevice.xml that gives you the indication to make the update available or not.

    1) No matter which version, they have to be an SD card (ID) that has never been placed in MB Download Manager. If it was already used in MB download Manager it probably will not upgrade maps.

    ID is on the garmindevice.xml
    <Volume Permissions = "1" Free_space = "14827226088" Id = "1XXXXXXXX2" Name = "Internal-0" />

    <Volume Permissions = "- 1" Free_space = "0" Id = "1XXXXXXXX2" Name = "Internal-1" />

    2) If it is a purchased version of ebay, it probably will not upgrade maps. Almost sure that all SD cards sold on Ebay are clones, unless sold with a cover, brochure and sealed !!!!
    There will be tons of buyers updating the same SD ID in MB Download Manager.


    The ID can be seen on the Audio 20 CD and Garmindevice.xml and it is probably also with this ID that the SD card activates the livetraffic.
    All SD / ID's are registered in the MB download manager through the vehicle's vin number. You can check when trying to recover the SD card through the VIN.

    Note - ID is not the CID
