I have factory Navigation RNS-E (2010?) / MMI, in which I need to have the Navigation DVD inserted in order to use it. What do I have to do to update it with new maps/software/DVD?

Watch out when buying nav discs on EBay. I bought cheap copy of the 2015/16 North America disc. Some people have had luck with burned copy's but unfortunately for me my copy didn't work. Good thing it was only like $8 :laugh:
Yeah, I took a $20 flier out on this one:

I popped it in the head unit and it looks like it can't read it, that is why I was wondering if i needed to do something else, via VCDS or another method or install sequence.

I get what you are saying, but I don't have unlimited data to run Nav Apps all the time.
How often do you rely upon Navigation? I find I rarely use it. Only when traveling into dense traffic or to new places do I rely upon it. And the phone based Navigation works pretty well. But if you have RNS-E installed then it probably makes sense to upgrade it for the the convenience.
