Despite following the instructions here (and from Lapies posts) im getting nowhere :oops:

Downloaded the "test" zip from dropbox... unzipped "SD-Karte2" putting PersonalPOI and metainfo2.txt onto the root of the SD (those 2 files only)

In the car,
inserting the SD card - SD CARD 2 SOFTWARE UPDATE IS AVAILABLE

Manage memory / update my POIs
YOU CAN INSTALL YOUR NEW POIs DATABASE.... PLEASE INSERT A DATA MEDIUM

UPDATE .... ERROR NO DATA AVAILABLE

AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH, I wont let this beat me !!! LOL
Its as if the database isnt compatible with my map ... the car reads the card, it knows theres an update on it, but wont go any further :-(
Anyone have any ideas please before I burn the car :eek:

Thanks Lampie... exactly the same m8, upon inserting the card a banner pops up on the map display saying there's an update, but when you try to update it says there's no data available !
Tried deleting all my data... but it still won't play :-(

I dont use speed camera data But as stuck at home isolation with nothing to do i thought i would give it a try Just to stop you burning the Car
following Lampies instructions used his downloaded his data base put it on SD card worked perfect
Just make sure you have extracted the files and put them on the card not the zip folder
mine did not work at first so when i checked i had to many files
this is what i did
in sat nav / setting /manage memory then update POI insert sd card you should see it reading it will then ask you updates found click OK the all files

Thanks for that Brian... sure its the same as I did !
from my understanding, it IS only the files from disk 2 (not English named) and you end up with a poi folder and a text file on the sd card...

It seems you are doing it correct format SD Card an try again and make sure you only have the one folder and text file try putting the SD card in after you sat nav have asked for it it seems quick

I insert the SD card into the slot...


Navigate to MANAGE MEMORY...


...then to UPDATE MY POIs


Where I see this...


Click top/left UPDATE...


Anything bindingly obvious to anyone as to why IT WONT ****ING WORK ?

As alway-thanks to the guys trying to help...

Because I have time on my hands I have just followed the instructions from Lampie and have successfully added and activated the speed camera data base to my 6PO system.
Just confirming that it does work.
Paulie I put the update card in slot 1 and my map card is in slot 2.

Can't see what difference the card slot would make... but hey !
Tried both slots, ignition on and off... fingers crossed, begging, swearing... and finally... finally, nope - exactly the same :-(
Even tried both sets of data in the zip (karte2)
Tried a couple of SD cards, a usb stick too.

There must be something different with MY car, either the satnav or head unit software... I managed to update the map via the Seat site so you'd think all this was "standard" but obviously not.

Mega thanks to you guys... any more suggestions welcome.

Stay safe everyone.

Thought I'd give this a go.

Didn't have a spare SD card, so used a USB stick. Copied the folder + file within the SD Karte 2 folder first. Put the stick into USB slot in car... Zilch!

Tried the other USB slot: then the folder + file within SD Karte 1 in both slots. Still zilch.

It's just not recognising the data on the USB stick as a valid update for my car and hangs while trying to read it. I gave it a full 10 minutes on one occasion, but no joy.

BigFatPaulie, I share your frustrations!
