    Can anyone who has used the downloadable Comand 2.5 firmware update please lend it to me to update my unit.

    I have downloaded the update and despite using two different types of CD's my unit refuses to update. It starts the process, gets to around 90% then stalls even after leaving the process running for well over one hour.

    If someone would loan me a known working disk i would be most gratefull. I would of course pay postage both ways.

    Thanks in anticipation. :thumb:

    Comand 2.5 firmware would also get updated when you insert a newer version navigation disc.

    With respect I don't think this is correct. I have a 2010 disk and when I first inserted it some data was updated but I don't think the comand firmware was updated as I still do not have the MB logo on the screen when I turn the unit on. Can anyone confirm this?

    You need to use a genuine disk. If you use a copy and it stalls during phase two of the update it will render your comand unit absolutely useless.

    The firmware update should give you the STAR logo. When a new navigation disk is inserted the Navigation software is updated as NPUK says.

    Thanks, I have read of owners sucsessfully doing the firmware update using the downloaded file burnt to good quality CD's.

    I suppose the chance of getting hold of an original will be slim at best.
