    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.

    If I copy it on the card, is there a way to upgrade both software and map to v8 ?
    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

    I have no idea. If there is not know how.
    One thing I'm sure the MB Download Manager does not analyze the CID... analyzes the ID.

    Yes. That's true. When I changed ID from xml file, Download Manager told me card is broken.

    I also tracked the software requests from mb servers. It checks what software and map files are available. I tried different version of the files but I do not know actual partnumber

    Even I can download new map files, I may need some unlock codes.

    I researched how to crack updating procedure from MB download manager via decompiling asobe air application (mb download manager)

    It checks what updates is available according to the Id and vinn information. It keeps in an xml file. Then it downloads. If we can capture the right update xml file, we can download these updates. But we will need unlock codes. This is so hard process when Id is checked in mb servers.

    MB download manager does not care VIN number as I remember.

    What I wonder is what would happen if you buy another card for a new map and that card will have the same device ID (audio 20 device id) and VIN number?

    Clone card works on cars. But you cannot use in MB download manager as I think. But software update is totaly free and there is no time limit. Therefore clone carda may be used but with partial update.

    Whenever I update my sd card (software update), audio 20 asks me if I want to get it married eith sd card or not. Thus, Can I use this card another car?
    If not, why does it ask me?

    When you update the software from the card to version V8 in the download manager it says after update first activatie the card in the Garmin system.

    What i have done after update the software. is make copy from the card to my harddrive before activated in the Garmin system.

    Then i have watch what has changed in the GarminDevice.xml
    When you look at the last 2 lines in the GarminDevice.xml is the vin from the car where card has been married with it has not changed.
    I have try to run it on a Virgin 32 Gb card in the car from my neightbour the card whas not working

    I have give it up i will wait for a solution !!!

    Not working because Audio20 check the CID number (and perhaps card label ?)
