    Yeah I did this a couple of years ago, copied the map update onto SD and sold on eBay, good racket $150 a pop then.
    Well, good while the goings good - sold to a German WWII nutter who whistle blew to eBay, Holden, and the copyright owner who I had no idea was Sensis, ie Telstra!?
    Anyway made reparations and suspended from eBay for a while flagged as an online terrorist, etc.
    Do you think a few pirated megs copied onto cheap old SD is worth $50? How much would you pay me for a DropBox link?
    Hard to pay anything for software unless it is legit from the source I think.

    What sort of douche dobs you in for that, a German I guess.

    Make the most of easy VE updates as they made it really hard for VF, you have to request the update from Holden with a VIN and it's encrypted to only work with the VIN you supply.

    At least the IQ maps are more up to date than the Mylink maps...

    I am a little confused @monster.....you say it is hard to pay for software unless legit yet were selling similar, for more $$$, yourself ?

    Is it worth $50 ? Is it worth $149 ? This is my query.

    Has anyone used these eBay items or similar and how do they perform ?

    I am certainly keen to get the update. Mine is currently version 7606.

    The IQ software version is D313 which appears to be the current version from what I can gather.

    It is the same software, copied at no cost, traded without owners permission on eBay and gumtree. I was shipping two or three a day at $200 until I came across a Nazi. Is very easy (but not as good as baby formula for making a lazy quid) and I thought why not sorta fits my interests. But having been read the complete riot act decided not worth it.
    What I meant by “only pay for originals” not fakes, is glib advice FWIW, because if you didn’t know it is strictly illegal to trade in copies of these maps. Much worse than music or videos.
    The more upmarket Holden buyer’s forum has member downloadable links for the latest maps for VE.

    LOL ok all cards on the table... since then have paid for the authentic article from legit reseller at reasonable rate, like TazzI above. Seriously (PayPal ID 9L170278R74488102 1/7/16) :)
    Cost is small, real tax invoice, full software write-off.

    So I paid for a 2 day subscription for GM online service programming and whilst updating the various modules, I found an option to copy Navi data to SD card

    The instructions state you will need a separate SD card which is used for configuring and updating the existing MAP SD card.

    I'm pretty sure it worked because I had a MY12 SD card but now have the latest maps

    It was 50 USD but they have now changed it to 40 USD which gives you access to only 1 VIN for 2 years.

    You still need a suitable cable as you can't input the vin and the system needs to get it from the car

    If you or anyone else is in Sydney Metro, I'm happy to lend my cable for any programming
