    Hello I am new here but have a question for anyone who might be able to assist.

    I am in Australia and have a Ford Falcon FG2 with Factory SatNav in the screen, Ford Australia no longer supports map updates for it and as it is 2014 maps this is crazy.

    The factory system runs a version of iGO (developed by NNG Kft), running 2 licenses Sumitomo Australia and New Zealand & Sumitomo Aus+NZ 2012 Q4.
    the Maps List shows the following: Australia 18 (WhereIS map data is [110126], Base Map 2009.09 (data source C Nima VMAPO [091215] and New Zealand 7 (WhereIS map data [110125].

    I do not care or need to update the NZ maps, just the Australia.

    When I plug a USB in and go to update, it copies the files needed to the USB under a NaviSync folder.inside that folder it has similar to my iGO portable unit the following folders: Content, License, save and the 2 files.

    I went in to the Content folder and the main difference I could see in all the folders including the MAP folder is that the files all have the standard iGO file extension of .fbl and .fda, HOWEVER after every file name and extension it then also has .stm at the end.

    I have tried copying my new maps from iGO primo and adding the .stm at the end of all the relevant files but still no luck being able to update it.

    Is there anyone on here who is able to help please, I have a full copy of the files that the Cars SatNav puts on to the USB ready for updating and can provide them to anyone able to assist.

    Please help.

    Ray
