        For the moment it's your only problem.
        These two are available.

        But what is the reason you want the 985 8211 version ?

          A friend who has a map update package for the same device, download the latest version of this map, so I thought this would be my best option.

            Depending on your device, another map is also possible
            When you have enough memory, any map with a version number 985 8155 would be the best choice

            Watch the compatible chart.

              Yes you could install that map but the problem with that is WE don't have the meta code (serial number) to activate the map as it hasn't been donated yet...and may never be.

              If your friend is willing to share his download with you & retrieve his meta code & share it with the community, it would help you & others too.
              It's perfectly safe from his perspective....read more on this page under Menu Items: No. 5

              If that's not acceptable then you'll have to look for an alternative map that already has a previously donated meta as pe1agp suggests.

                K. He has been able to get the meta generated. I will post it on forum when I get it from him. Is there a particular place I should post it to when I get it from him.. And should I upload the map as well?

                  Put it somewhere here

                  It's not necessary to upload the map as well

                  Many thanks in advange

                    Thank you (and your friend) for the meta...do you know how to transfer that map to your own device?

                    1. Ensure your UK & ROI 985.8211 map is extracted into it's own folder & resides in the root of your device
                    2. Ensure FastActivate.exe also resides in the root of your device
                    3. Download this file and extract it to the root of your device
                    4. Run FastActivate.exe from the root of your device and select option 2 to patch the map

                    Done.

                        Yes, you're right but those two erroneous files you're talking about relate to UK & ROI 985.8155

                        We're talking about something else....but thanks anyway
