Map update installation from a mac

Post by Midinotes » Tue Oct 22, 2019 6:27 pm

Hi everyone
Has anyone updated the sat nav maps from an Apple computer? I ask because I downloaded the latest map update from the Vauxhall website to my iMac. I uncompressed the files using the built in uncompress and also tried unpacker utility. Copied the files to a 16GB sandisk memory stick formatted to FAT 32. When I insert it into the usb socket, the infotainment system detects the update and asks me if I want to install it. I ticked the european map and install, it starts for a second or so then comes with an error “unable to install, Error”.

Will try on a pc later to see if that helps.

Simon

I also tried using a Mac and failed multiple times using various de-compression apps. Eventually dug out an older windows pc used a long format usb (not quick format-took about half an hour) and then used winrar to decompress direct to the usb (took 80mins) and that successfully updated the maps

I have given up trying to do a firmware update after spending nearly a whole weekend believing life is just too short

Thanks, I will do the same and dig out my pc. I would like to get the firmware updated as its never been done since early 2018, but I don’t fancy trying to use the Peugeot one.

Hi Simon

It was the Peugeot firmware that I failed to load and I have pretty much the identical car to you. (Saw your pic on this site) except a bit lower milage.

There are many people on the Grandland Facebook group who have succeeded in loading the Peugeot FW but not me

The current map version on the Vauxhall website is: Q3 2019.
For the past few weeks I have been unable to successfully down load this version due to interruptions to the download process but this morning it downloaded first time without a problem.

Hi, I have 2019-Q3 Europe Crossland Grandland installed. I downloaded it from the Vauxhall website.

This is what shows upon Settings. Hope this helps.
