That’s right I’m referring to a NEW sd card okDo not Format the card. It is locked to the vehicle. You can not update a clean formatted card. The MB download manager will only update your own card. I can only assume in your case that updating a card that is five years out of date, is possibly a step too far, and yes it should look like your picture on the right. And it sounds as if you are doing everything correctly
I will definitely try all of those things before I get my wallet outOf course you can try it and try it again.
Did you delete the cookies for example? Did you installed the MB-DLM again? Did you used another browser as usual? Did you follow all instructions and have introduced a valid VIN and so on?!
This is correct, but it only applies to cars that have the TomTom Live Traffic feature (fitted to MB cars from mid-2013 onwards).
If the car has only the basic TMC traffic service, then this is a free service (in the UK) and it never expires, and in this case there will be no 'Subscription information' option in the COMAND menu.
To be precise....:I think it is slightly more complex than that.
You have TMC in the UK but you cannot use it with a car having an MB NTG 4.5, 4.7 unit.
Here is my experience:
Some older and less smart devices, like my old Volvo (MY 2008) could get UK TMC without any problem (no internet based traffic info could be used there). However, this does not work with the recent day MB navis (Command 4.5, 4.7, like mine). Even though the NTG 4.5, 4.7 have the TMC capability builtin and it works in some countries (BE, NL, DE, AT, ... for me) but in the UK it wants to use the Tom Tom dynamic service and refuses to use any TMC. This service is dynamic traffic info coming from 10-20k fixed sensors (as private service) combined with Voda service (cell position change I guess) as a (B2B) service. I think it uses not the TMC technically but the data connection of the unit. (Via the built-in sim card for MY 2015+ tethering for MY 2013-14)
The price of such service is included into the first 3 yr of subscription (comes with the car and the Tom Tom sw), then it stops. You need to pay quite a significant amount (100+) for a year to make it work again. (It is double or the triple of the price you would pay for the same service + online maps into your phone...) Again it has nothing to do to the map updates and the device's firmware.
So due to tricky MB marketing, you can have premium service at a premium price and you cannot have the free service. At least not in the UK.
Ok everyone, I'm not sure this is the End, or the beginning of the end!! Having complained to the Head Office of the dealership, I have just had the latest Garmin map installed. It would seem that on each occasion I visited the 2 outlets of the dealership, the technicians were all under the impression that "updating" the SD card would provide the latest map updates. This is not correct, the only updates are to the firmware as confirmed earlier in this thread. The technicians have only been made aware very recently. The only way to get map updates is to buy a new SD card - I'm told they are £99 which was waived for me because of the hassle I'd experienced. The SD was installed for me & I have the empty case - A2139064307 (Version 12.0 (Map 12.0) Europe. They also pointed out that new maps come out quite regularly but I'm not bothered since I've now moved from the V8 2017!! I have also had confirmation that the operation of the Live Traffic is seperate as a subscription & is not tied to the SD card. I have searched on the internet for A2139064307 which takes you to the MB accessories site but strangely there is no way to purchase the map & it doesn't state any price!! I'm sure I've seen someone on this forum showing a list of available firmware/map versions - can anyone point me to this? Finally, I'm wondering whether using the Download Manager will firstly indicate & update the firmware, but will also tell you if there's a new map version? I presume then you would need to contact the dealer. Incidentally, my new map took nearly 12 days to arrive so I dont know where they get it from!!

Most car satnav systems can have speed cameras loaded as personal POIs, though this solution is not as good as having a proper speed camera add-on, i.e. in the same way as Waze does.Hi I called holland (head office) I think well that’s where the line goes to. And asked is there any way I can put speed cameras alerts on the system. He said a few years ago yes. But now you can’t so I’ll use Waze for now thanks guys
