hi, thanks for the info ive been looking around for a noobs how to on this for a while. just wondering, the manual says to update the FIRMWARE first as mine is 2009 and is running 1.5.0 firmware and the update is 1.9.0 when i try and do it via cd like the website says my headunit greys out the update button and i cant update. any ideas on how to update that and if i actually need to update the firmware in order for the new maps to be installed?
im going to try using the laptop to get into the mass storage and do the maps but wondered if itll muck the headunit up if i dont do the firmware and would i be able to use the laptop to do that?

Jumping in on an old subject...
I followed the directions to the letter to install the new firmware and new nav software, both disks failed to register in the head unit. I've tried different formats, tried burning disks on windows and mac and just cant get it to work. Has anyone had any success? Also Ive looked pretty hard for this usb port and cant see it, yes I've have the screen open.

Hi, the USB port is on the back of the unit and it's a mini USB type, I've attached a link to the diagram, I managed to get the cable in by removing the glove box and feeling the back of the unit and using the diagram.
