R-Link 2 : Update Map

Last update: April 10th, 2018

Keeping your R-Link 2 GPS up-to-date is important. There are 2 elements that can be updated: the system (software) and the map.

Let’s see how we keep the map up to date because if it’s not up-to-date, the system may offer inconsistent routes.


How to know the version of my R-Link 2?

To check the cartography you have to go in: NAVIGATION / OPTIONS (bottom right) / ABOUT.

To know its software version it is necessary to go in the following menus: SYSTEM / INFORMATION SYSTEME

There are 2 different versions for R-Link 2 2.X and 3.X. To determine the branch, the start of the software version number is based on the System Information menu.

What is the latest map version available for R-Link 2?

2016.12 Asia, Africa, America published in March 2018

It is normal that there is a delay between the capture of the data and the publication of the update (1 year).

* You can install yourself the 2.2.19.300 version of you have the 2.2.17.803, 2.2.18.590 or 2.2.19.200 version (see this page). For the others versions: more informations about software update available on this page.

How to update the R-Link 2 Map?

You will need the R-Link 2 ToolBox (how to download it) on your computer.


Can I get a free map for R-Link 2?

At the launch of the R-Link 2, the user could download a new map for a period of one year.

Since 1st January 2017, map updates are free for 3 years ! The vehicle must have been delivered after 1st January 2017.

What is the price of an upgrading R-Link 2 Map?

If you are no longer in the eligible period, it is possible to subscribe to the updates for 1 year for 89.90 € on the R-Link Store. Normally this should give you right to 2 updates. But experience has shown us that Renault had certainly had difficulties in the beginning but we note in recent months a clear improvement on the subject!

For the branch 2.2.X.Y of R-Link 2, to get the last map update you need the last version: 2.2.18.590, 2.2.19.200 or 2.2.19.300. Don’t buy an update if you don’t have the last version.

    I have installed the 2.2.19.200 Rlink-2 update on my Espace, delivered in october 2016. Due to the know bugs, I did not have the possibility to install updated maps (I have the 06/2015 ), and the one year period has expired.
    Can you extend the period so that I can install the updated map ?

    Thank in advance

      Hello I can’t do anything. If you are out of the free map period (I think it is your case) you have to buy a new Europe map on the R-Link store .

      Is your vehicle still in the free map period (1 year for vehicles delivered before 2017, then 3 years after the 1/1/2017)? If this not the case you must buy a new Europe map on the R-Link Store.

    The car is in subscription period but it’s not possible to install maps after updating from 2.17 to 2.19 firmware….

      Ok, you can try to format your USB key (fat32). Plug it in your car and wait 2 minutes to do the fingerprint. Plug it in your computer, open the R-Link 2 toolbox and your R-Link store (to see if updates are available).

      • Is this solved?

        • I had the similar problem, 2.2.19.200 installed successfully, subscription active, but rlink store web app showing only 2015.6 map update available (even though it has been already successfully installed at least 10 times).
          I’ve contacted customer service, described the problem in detail and asked if they can redirect the case to technical team. Technical team solved the problem pretty fast. 2016.12 was available at the web app and then in toolbox right after their intervention.
          Maps are now installed and running on the vehicle without any problem.

    Hello, so I have installed the 2.2.19.200 Rlink-2 update on my Kadjar. Now the problem is I want to but the two map updates from r-link store but in the description it shows the last map is 11.2015 and the newest one is 12.2016. So, I would like to know if the 12.2016 update for the map is included in the map pack. Thanks, Atapour Majid. P.S. I am buying the map pack from the irish website of renault.

      The description is not up to date. If you take an one year map subscription you will be able to get the 12.2016 map.

  • Hi! I have an Espace (oct. 2016) with 2.2.19.200 but the map is 2015.06 and toolbox is proposing me 2015.06 again (already installed since from the beginning) and not the new one. my map update is still valid till november 2018. What I can do to install the last map version? Thank you.

      Try to install a free application from R-Link store.

    • I wrote what I did and how I’ve solved it. Just read my post and do the same. Customer service will ask you in detail what versions are installed on your vehicle so prepare the numbers before calling them. Rlink2 version, map packages installed, navigation software version… you can find all those info in the vehicle itself.

        Installing a free app seems to work as well to unlock the cards. I had several excellent feedback on this method on the French site. 😉

    Hi, I have some problems with my Kadjar. It’s delivered before 2017, so my free subscription is over now. The problems is that there is no way to buy anything from r-link store. Not from my home – Bulgaria store, not from GB, not from Irish store. No packs, no maps, no apps, no nothing. Also my R-link store button in apps section in car’s menu is grayed out also.

  • Hello I have some problems with the software update 2.2.19.200
    My multimedia system doesn’t work now.
    I have a iPhone X and now I can’t connect multimedia with my r-link

      Hello, what exactly doesn’t work? Do you try to remove your iPhone of Bluetooth settings and do again the Bluetooth connection? Do you try to reboot your R-Link System (long press of power button)?

  • Dear Sirs

    I’ve bought brand new Renault Talisman Initiale Paris Energy TCe 200 EDC Sto 4 control (full packed) in November 2017 with R-Link2 installed in Belgrade. I’ve updated system to latest one using Fat32 formatted SD card and all works great BUT my car is NOT online (all free apps I downloaded from My Renault website but I had to set Croatia (there is no Serbia!? as selectable country) and I’ve got Calculator, My Profile app and few others that are free). I want to get more apps that I will pay (for example – by PayPal, Bank Transfer, anything online – everything works here, I am buying Apps & Games on iOS for very long time.) but I just want to go online and be able to see traffic and any other (default) views (that even works in Google Maps).

    Car Play works well (even it has some a bit strange graphics bugs in car play maps, some pixels dissapearing and reappearing, like overlay problems with PC’s graphics cards. Since I bought iPhoneX those glitches started (system worked better with iPhone7 before).). Strange errors appears with blue tooth connection, it can disable BT connection sometimes?) but I am more interesting in going ONLINE with Renault Talisman. As a car is OFFLINE (even I turned on all sharing datas etc.) there is no GPS connection with the rest of the world, only maps are working?)

    Is it possible to set iPhoneX as a router and go online & download / buy some apps from the Talisma? Or easier – how to turn data connection on (Connect button on R-Link2 is gray, non-pressable)?

    Please can you help me, I really enjoy in this great car but this “bug” is really annoying me. People from official Renault here in Belgrade said that they can`t help me – they do not know how to set it up to go online?!

      Prika, piši na uk / gb rlink support. Meni su odgovarali prilično brzo u odnosu na naše i davali jako dobre informacije u odnosu na ovo kod nas. Što se mene tiče, u 1. mjesecu sam instalirao samostalno update na Rlink2, a kad sam im to rekao reakcija im je bila da je to nemoguće, da korisnici na Rlink 2 nisu u mogućnosti sami to napraviti… Dok su mi u UK supportu još u 10./11. mjesecu govorili da se očekuje da korisnici uskoro sami rade update, i da to očekuju početkom 2018. i nemaju točan datum. guglaj R-Link Helpline UK da ne pišem tu mailove.. samo reci englezima da naši ne znaju popravit..

    I have updated the map in my Kadjar (7″ screen) to version to 12.2016 but it doesn’t show a local roundabout which was finished in 2015.

  • Maybe I am stupid but you say 8.7″ landscape and 7″ portrait. You are sure? I think they are vice versa ( 8.7″ portrait and 7″ landscape)

    • Ok, I found now another guy saw the same issue. Sorry! I must say you lost me at ” Meni su odgovarali prilično brzo brbbzbrbdr ghtttdhbrzzzz bgrzz…..” post

    Salut! Am un renault talisman si am cumpărat un abonament pentru 3 ani map update full europa am instalat cea mai nouă versiune firmware 2.2.19.300. În contul my renault am doar update pentru 06.2015. De ce nu gasesc noile hărți pentru care am platit? Am întrebat si la dealer ă spus sa astept. Dar tot astept de 3 luni si nimic, nu este normal am platit 150€ si eu am in continuare harta de 2015.

    Hello! I have a renault talisman and I bought a subscription for 3 years map update full europa I have installed the latest firmware version 2.2.19.300. In my renault account I only have update for 06.2015. Why do not I find the new maps for which I paid? I asked the dealer to wait. But I still wait for 3 months and nothing, it’s not normal I paid 150 € and I still have the 2015 map.

    • Try to install a free application in the R-Link Store using the R-Link 2 toolbox (like the clock) . After you should have the last map on the update page of the R-Link Store. 😉

      • What free application? How does it call? I do have version 2.2.19.200 but I can not updated anything. R – link tool box does not recognize USB and the file on the drive. Also I can not connect with R-link store. Data sharing is On but I can not access to the shop.

  • I keep getting checksum error update failed. Any idea?

  • I followed your guide and installed the latest firmware version 2.2.19.300. The only map update available for me when trying to update the map was 2015.06 after updating my R-link. I tried to install a free app but I still didn’t get other map updates. It still offered me map update 2015.06 which I already had installed one year ago. I have a Espace from April 2016 so my map subscription had expired in april 2017. Now I paid a map subscription for a year and the update to 2017.06 was available in R-LINK toolbox. Hallelujah, It’s downloading right now. Finally a new map👍
