First of all you need to get map files for Mib2 unit.
We do have map update for Mib2 for areas:

- Row ( Argentina*, Australia, Bahrain, Botswana*, Brazil*, Brunei*, Chile*, Indonesia*, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lesotho*, Malaysia, Mexico*, Mozambique*, Namibia*, New Zealand, Oman, Philippines*, Qatar, Reunion*, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Swaziland*, Thailand*, Turkey*, United Arab Emirates. * partially) – link
How to deal with files?
When you download all files you will see that there’s quite a lot of parts (depends on area might be up to 30 7zip files).
Make sure you have all files in same place (for example Mid2 map folder).
To unpack files you will need 7zip application – you can download it from 7zip.org for free.
When you have already installed 7zip, go to the map files. Click on first file (with ending: 7z.001) with right mouse click and select Extract to “filename…”
This might take some time to unpack the files.
then you can start preparing SD CARD.
How to prepare SD CARD for Mib2 map update.
Map update takes quite a lot of space, you will need to use 64GB SD CARD, the smaller might not fit all files.
There’s a video manual how to format 64GB SD to FAT32.
Application used in this video: link (click to download)
For macOS users please take a look here (click)
When you have formatted your SD CARD to FAT32 now you need to copy files on to SD.
To do that, go inside newly unpacked files – you should see new folder with files inside:
all you need to do now select all those files (Mib1, Mib2 metainfo2) and copy directly on to SD CARD.
THOSE FILES MUST BE DIRECTLY ON SD, WITHOUT ANY PARENT FOLDER. WHEN YOU ENTER SD YOU MUST SEE ABOVE FILES DIRECTLY
This process might take up to 1h – depends on how fast is your SD CARD. After moving files, you can jump to the car 🙂 (do not forget to take your SD with maps).
