On the planete-citroen web site lots of people have confirmed that V7 is a good update. What has caused some confusion though is that V7 is dated 15/09 which technically makes it older than V6.0.1. This is probably a mistake as newer roads exist in V7 maps.

I got a brand new C4GP in January. I've been having the "Connected Services" and "Software/Firmware" discussion with my dealer. They were incapable so I walked in with all the documents showing them how to do the services connection and firmware update. It didn't go down well but they still did it.

Anyway, map update - the dealer's (Bristol Street) broadband was terrible and it was going to take 8 hours to download, so in the end I did the map update myself.

What concerned me about the new updated MyCitroen UK site was that it only allowed the download of V7 maps. The first post on this thread mentioned that we need to update the maps in sequence. I was on V4, so I assumed that I would have to install V5, V6 and then V7. Anyway, I had a go at installing V7 without any of the previous updates and fortunately everything worked fine! Perhaps this is because I have the latest firmware?

The new MyCitroen web site has a link to a nice document describing how to update your firmware and maps. It's available to download from here.

Page 6 describes how to uncompress the .RAR file in Windows. (The author doesn't know the difference between a folder and a file but never mind.) If also doesn't mention a .XML file that is part of the .RAR file. I included it just in case and everything still worked fine.

Page 7 has a nice selection of step by step screenshots. DON'T do what slide #7 describes otherwise you'll be installing the map update for a 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc time! Instead answer "No".
