What’s my MMI version?

First of all, you have to recon which MMI your car have.

The best way it’s just to go to the Engineering menu and check the current firmware version.

You can enter there by pressing the CAR and SETUP (or sometimes MENU or BACK) buttons on your MMI console.

Make sure that MMI is fully booted – after final reboot!
(press all buttons once RADIOCARNAVMEDIATEL).
Wait until all options are ok (no options in grey) even when all options are ok wait a minute more.

Hello, I have updated the software of my basic mmi to the Bnav_eu_k260_1_d1 version, but now it does not take me maps from 5.32.2, I have tried with another sd and it does the same: it tells me at the end: there are no updates, what could it be?, thanks.

Hello!
I’ve updated software from BNav_EU_P0260_D1 to BNav_E_K0260_D1 and the maps from 5.20.4 to latest.
But the activator doesn’t start at all from the SD. I wait for all the processes to start and then insert SD-card, nothing happens.
What could be the issue?
