    Discontinuation of Navigation DVD's ?

    What will happen to navigation DVD from MY2012 onwards?

    Found in the changes list for MY2012’s:

    Former parts:
    RNS 510 Navigations-DVD Westeuropa R2Z / 7RT
    RNS 510 Navigations-DVD Osteuropa R2Z / 7RK


    New parts:
    Navigationsdatenträger für Westeuropa, integriert R2Z / 7QL
    Navigationsdatenträger für Osteuropa, integriert R2Z / 7QM


    Does it mean that navigation DVD’s are discontinued and updates to be done by the dealer (Audi style)?

    It means that the DVD's for MY 2012 are both for the old A,B and C units as well as for the new D-type units
    Just like the 7.1 versions that were already available as Beta Editions

    However it looks like it will be possible to install navigation data from an SD Card

    I'm sorry Gazo, but what I understand is that there is no DVD distributed with the new D versions. Data seems to be already loaded in the HDD and my concern is about future updates: No longer DVD's (I mean for D units) but update by the dealer?

    No, not correct.
    Data will still be distributed by DVD
    DVD is the only possible distribution possibility for A-C units anyway
    And you may have noticed yourself that even with 39xx software, you can still load the DVD onto HDD

    Ok Gazo.

    No doubt that DVD will continue for A, B, C. My doubts were just for D (at least seems to be skiped with the original car).

    If there is a DVD for D as well, my chances of seeing soon the original 7.1 (I mean with the proper database) are still alive !!!
