HI,
Could you explain how to change the extension from pdf to .zip please
Thanks!
If you download the file - then using windows explorer you can tick the File Name Extensions option on the View Tab as below - this will show the filename with the ".pdf" extension - which you can then change to be a ".zip" extension - it's useful as it allows you to change extensions and also to see if any attachments are definitely what they claim to be. Only watch out is that if you delete the extension then the associated program won't work - in this case you want a unzip program to work - rather than Adobe which is what the pdf extension is associated with. Hope this helps

Hello,

I updated my maps, the process completed fine but i notice that the map version didn't change. Is this normal?


For some reason the system didn't assume the change at the time, i only switched off my car for some seconds. This morning it has fine.

This may sound really silly but i cant open the key gen file to generate a key, Could someone please guide me, thanks
You need to have JAVA installed on your machine (e.g. Oracle Java Home User) and you'll need to use an unzip program first of all to unzip the .rar / .zip file - suggestion would be to use 7 Zip (PC based) - then check that your keygen.jar file is associated with the JAVA installation program to open it rather than another program. If you right click on the keygen program and select open with - you should be able to see what the default connection is - you may need to change this if it isnt linked to the Java platform. If you still struggle, let me know and I'll help you further.

i have unzipped the files but I’m still struggling to get this Java file opened, I have downloaded the software you suggested, could it be its because I’m using a laptop?

I'm on windows 10 Home Pro laptop, using Java Oracle version 8, Update 271 and 7-Zip to unzip the zip file. The keygen executable works fine on my laptop, so it shouldn't be that, It could be file associations if the default program isn't set to use JAVA, I'm sure I read somewhere that Edge can sometimes be incorrectly associated with Java files, When you unzip the zip file what does your folder look like? when you right click on the keygen and select open with what program does it default to? If you still struggle, if you PM me your VIN, I can generate the key for you but it will be for the maps that are called update M49RG20-Q020-2001 - the link is somewhere in the last pages of this forum, as the key is linked to the map and VIN.

Thanks for your help mate, I have managed to install the latest maps and got the keygen to work, was an issue with the Microsoft edge which wouldn’t let me open the JAR files, I had to disable Microsoft edge and then it worked

Just wanted to confirm, is this the latest firmware and maps installed now?
Maps look to be latest
Firmware wise 5.43 is the latest version - it's on page 1 of this sub-forum - if you do install proceed with caution, engine needs to be running and a few people on here have had their SMEG unit bricked during the installation phase. I did suffer a blue screen when i did mine, which i was able to resolve by unplugging the battery (following the 3 minute rule) and then after reconnecting I was able to restart the installation sequence successfully. I know someone else had issues and they posted that they had to remove the head-unit and replace the micro SD card and was able to recover it. Having said that quite a few have installed the firmware without any issues at all so it's your call. The latest firmware does cure the issue with the head-unit constantly rebooting that's been reported in another topic due to DAB radio station signals. FAT32 USB stick format same as used for MAP update - nothing else on the stick and no keygen codes needed

Thanks Paul! I followed instructions and sucessfully updated my maps! I have 308 2016. 1.6hdi 120hp.

Tried the link for Speed Cameras but it is not valid anymore, I am not even sure do I need this because i live in Serbia (Eastern Europe South on maps), maybe there is no update for my country at all. Important thing is, just follow instructions and everything works like a charm. Only problem I had was with usb, few times formated (FAT32, everything worked fine on PC) and always my Pug gave me "Unreadable media". So I bought new USB stick today and everything was ok.

Can these maps be in the 2015 Peugeot 308 II and how do I get the activation code *?
Read the guide on page 1 of this forum, download the Keygen generator tool, enter your VIN in the Keygen generator tool once you've pointed it to the correct folder and then use the generated activation code to update the maps, or alternatively you can do the following, once you've got the code using your VIN and the tool

Thanks for latest maps. Any link for speed camera updates. I can't seem to find this...thanks
Map Update Procedure:

Java Generator:

You'll need to unzip the generator - i suggest using 7-Zip and then you'll need JAVA for the generator to work - you may need to disable EDGE as a few members have had issues with JAVA not working

If you still struggle PM me your VIN and I'll send you the Activation code
