England 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 HSE Auto Orkney Grey

ill try and grab a picture of it the next time it pops up.

doesn't seem to affect anything as the mapping still works.

The only thing ive noticed is that on my HSE with the 825w surround meridian system I had the option to select dolby, meridian or another sound 'effect'
I don't have that option on the 380w meridian system I have now, so im assuming its because it isn't the surround system even though it has subwoofer. 2013 FL2 SD4 HSE Auto Orkney Grey - loved it
2011 Evoque SD4 Prestige Coupe Manual Indus Silver - loving it Smile

Christopher would you mind checking the map date by following the video, and posting a pic of the version please, it would be interesting to find out what’s being sold as 2018/19. Many thanks

Hi Christopher I have jut purchased the maps from the same supplier. When you updated your system did you go for a long drive, put on a charger or just went for a number of short drives or ..... as it takes 2 plus hours. Your experience would be a great help.

I hooked it up to a battery charger/optimiser (CTEK MXS 5.0) on the driveway. Mine took the best part of 3 hours; and after it's done updated you're advised to switch the engine off, lock the car, and wait 15 minutes before using it.

Sorry to revive an old thread, this is my first post so please bear with me if it has been covered before.

I wondered if there was a more recent USB Map update other than V30.18.03 at all? My local dealer is quoting an astronomical figure for the update but is unable to give me a version number, other than "it's the latest one", which is less than helpful.

HERE, who are responsible for the mapping are telling me that they no longer support the vehicle as it is out of production, and the last release that they offered was 2017 Mapping. Does anybody know if there is a newer map or option available, as mine is currently sitting on 2012 Mapping, which is wildly out of date.

Thanks in advance.

That is the latest map for Europe and UK, although dated 2018, the data for the map was collected during Quarter 3 of 2017. This is the usual timeframe for map releases, the 2018 map was only released by Here in the last few months. The maps will continue to be updated as the maps are the same as Incontrol touch pro maps used in new models

I have a 2013 HSE and am considering a map update. There are offers on verious sites for about £100. The HERE map site wants £169. Has anybody got a recomendation as to which supply to use ?.


I suppose it depends on how reliant you are on having brand new maps, bearing in mind that very few new roads have been built in recent years and probably none that you couldnt navigate along without Sat Nav. Also considering the Sat Nav on the FL2 is not very good in comparison to other systems, you might want to consider simply using your phone as Sat Nav - Google Maps or Waze are as up to date as can be and function very well - with real time traffic information etc

You can use your phone as a dash cam at the same time, I believe.

Plus you can set up navigation on your phone before you even get into the car. Jules

Ah, right you are, thank you for the information. We have a Discovery Sport in the family with InControl Touch Pro (the bigger screen) as well....the Maps for that are updated/downloaded via the web quarterly - would the USB that they are downloaded to work in the Freelander do you think? Assuming that the mapping data is the same?

If your system is getting on a bit, I'd use a smartphone (if you have one), with Google Maps. No need to worry about updates. I use it exclusively and I use it a lot. Learned to drive in 2011.
Bought a Micra - great little car
"Upgraded" to Kia Sportage - hated it
Proper upgrade to FL2 TD4 GS 60 reg Facelift - tailgate paint issues, fuel gauge rewire, transfer box failure at 36k miles
