Hello everyone, I have just signed up and I congratulate those who actively participate in this interesting discussion.
I have read most of the more than 100 pages before to intervene as I do not think I have found an answer to my question that I ask below.
I have a Suzuki Ignis from 2017 so with dated maps and firmware (Europe), in this area Suzuki does not provide free or do-it-yourself updates, absurd!
It is absolutely not my intention to clone maps for profit, I would simply like to update the device I have.
I have excellent technical and computer knowledge (it's my job) so I don't think I have any difficulties with the firmware, a different problem for the navigator's maps.
It is not possible for me to get an SD with modifiable CID and therefore I am forced to buy a new SD with updated maps?
I saw that from the web I can find the contents of the SD updated but I was wondering if I can simply cut (delete) the old files of 2016 (the entire content practically) from my original SD and replace themwith the new ones found on the web.
Or is the famous CID uniquely closely linked to the file group of the original SD and if I replace the files with new ones, I make the navigator unusable?
I don't know if I was clear enough...
I thank in advance those who can provide me with clarifications on the matter...
Buongiorno a tutti, mi sono appena iscritto e faccio i complimenti a chi partecipa attivamente a questa interessante discussione.
Ho letto gran parte delle oltre 100 pagine prima di intervenire in quanto non credo di avere trovato una risposta alla mia domanda che pongo qui di seguito.
Ho una Suzuki Ignis del 2017 quindi con mappe e firmware (Europa) datati, in questa zona Suzuki non fornisce gli aggiornamenti gratuiti o fai da te, assurdo!
Non è assolutamente mia intenzione clonare le mappe a scopo di lucro, vorrei semplicemente aggiornare l’apparato che ho.
Ho ottime conoscenze tecniche e informatiche (è il mio lavoro) quindi non credo di avere difficoltà per il firmware, problema diverso per le mappe del navigatore.
Non mi è possibile procurarmi una SD con CID modificabile e quindi sono costretto a comprare una nuova SD con le mappe aggiornate?
Ho visto che dal web si può trovare il contenuto della SD ma mi chiedevo se posso semplicemente tagliare (eliminare) i vecchi file del 2016 (l’intero contenuto praticamente) dalla mia SD originale e rimpiazzarli (sostituirli) con quelli nuovi trovati in rete.
Oppure il famoso CID è strettamente legato univocamente al gruppo di file della SD originale e se rimpiazzo i file con quelli nuovi rendo il navigatore inutilizzabile?
Non so se sono stato abbastanza chiaro…
Ringrazio anticipatamente chi potrà fornirmi chiarimenti in merito...
Thanks mauriciomatos, now everything is clearYou can't use the SD card with the old maps and simply copy the new maps to that card. You really need to buy an SD card with changeable CID or buy one pre programmed with the required CID.
Or...you can just do like I and many others do. Just buy the SD card with the most recent maps on eBay for 30 euros or so.
No, unfortunately no.View attachment 5611689
One question: I am a loving user of the TomTom (app Go for Android) which shows the speed limits and warns you when you exceed them and real instant speed (see attached photo).
Since the integrated navigator in the car is very convenient for use, I would like to be able to view these data, is there the possibility of seeing them also on SLDA?
I have not found a way to make them appear...
I have no such entry in my slda menu...Hello Zabo64,
there is something, however, that I do not understand ...
I downloaded the manual and it looks like you can select to show speed limits!
Am I consulting a non-EU manual?
The same possibility exists in the manual in Italian (I write from Italy) with also the example screens while in the manual in English the procedure is described but there are no relative screens.
Should the FW of the SLDA be updated?
I have the original one of the car (registered in 2017: Software Version 1810.2_161007) ...
Si ho installato i POI con l'avviso ma è veramente poco visibile e il suono brevissimo.
Hi to all,
I am one of those who read almost all the hundred pages of this thread, but I found no solution to my issue.
I read that many just downloaded the firmware from the BOSCH website (currently 1790 is the latest suitable for Suzuki Baleno 2016 model for European market, is that correct?), extracted to a USB pendrive (FAT32 file system) and plugged it into the USB slot of the car, but this does not work for me.
Someone wrote that the above is just the source code, not installable because it should be compiled first and in that case I do hope you may want to help me compile that source code, if needed in order to install the updated version. I wish I will not be obliged to download the SLDA_SOP9 available from web for two reasons: I should trust the owner of that file but most of all I do want to learn how to do it by myself.
I do have some programming skills and I do know how to compile a software written in C/C++ when a makefile is present, but I see no makefile in the above source code.
Meanwhile, this is what I get when I unpack the source files

What should I do next?
Thank you so much for your reply. Actually the BOSCH website mentions that version numbers starting with 18xx are for cars produced in Hungary while those starting with 17xx are for cars produced in India. My car is not produced in Hungary, but in India, despite it's for European market.You have all your information wrong
If you want the European version of the SLDA firmware, it's 1890 and not 1790. You will find it somewhere on this thread. The new versions are always shared here when someone has access to it. The stuff on Bosch website is indeed the source code and it's completely useless to us.
Thank you so much for your reply. Actually the BOSCH website mentions that version numbers starting with 18xx are for cars produced in Hungary while those starting with 17xx are for cars produced in India. My car is not produced in Hungary, but in India, despite it's for European market.
As you say, this interpretation is not correct, also considering that my infotainment has always had version numbers starting with 18xx (I had the service guys update the software a couple of time while the car was in the warranty period).
Last but not the least, is it possible to get the instruction to compile the software by ourselves?
Hello guys, I'm totally new with the software updates and I am looking for a help. I'm driving Suzuki Baleno 2017 GLX bought in North Macedonia (Europe) and it doesn't have AndroidAuto. Firstly, I tried lots of apps and pre-installed AndroidAuto from my Samsung phone to connect my phone to the car, but with no luck. Finally, I understood that it's impossible to connect them, because of the old software my car has.
Currently, my car has the factory 0850 software version and if I understood correctly, I need 18xx versions to "unlock" all the new stuff this update has. I really want to have all those 2022 car benefits, so I decided to search a little bit more.
Today I called the official Suzuki service partner where I live and the price for an update to the 18xx software version will cost me 100$ and I need to wait for 1 month. And an updated SD card for the European navigation will cost me around 400$, which is crazy expensive.
I was reading lots of pages of this forum, and I found that there's an aliexpress SD card containing the needed files and it works just like "plug & play". I insert the SD card and immediately I will have the 2022 maps.
And even more important, I really like to have AndroidAuto in my 2017 Suzuki Baleno GLX. But, the 100$ price tag for someone to install it it's too steep for me, and the waiting period of 1 month is unaccaptable. The thing is, I am really scared to destroy my car if I try to install it myself, given the fact I'm not an IT guy at all.
What's the best software version for my car, any good videos that can explain me well the process of installing, is it worth it all to risk it, and what's the difference between my car's version (0850) vs (18xx) software versio
We did not believe you unless you share the content with us! (evil grin)Today I received a small package that I have been waiting for a long time and surprise. For those who don't believe Suzuki SLDA 2021 SD card exist, here are some pictures. They are real sd2-Suzuki-SLN_EUR_2021 v1.
Map files are from 10.09.20
