My dealer sent me the 2013 maps, following the problem where they sent me the 2012 (thinking this was the most up-to-date version of the maps). However, as i'd previously updated to 2012 maps only last week, there was no need to renter the code (provided by Siera) second time round. Just had to put in the disks and W...A...I...T! This confirms the code he supplies will work with either 12 or 13 discs.
Now running Premium 2013 Europe and I'm well happy
I'm keen to find out if indeed doughboy did have 7 digit when trying this method - it would be the main reason I'd do the upgrade.
