  1. So you can no longer update it yourself? You have to purchase the Map Care card? Also is there a link to the Map Care site and do you still have the link to the original post w/your instructions on how to do it yourself.

    Thanks Jay!

  2. I too would like to know more about this Map Care card. Web searches turn up nothing and using item number 000-051-256-A-DSP at VW parts sites yields no results.

  3. Hey jay what happened to the original article you posted on this w/ the link to the update and instructions?
