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.

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 Ttore. Normally this should give you right to 2 updates. But experience has shown us that Renault has not fulfilled its commitments so far for R-Link 2.
For the branch 2.2.X.Y of R-Link 2, to get the last map update you need the last version: 18.104.22.1680. Don’t buy an update if you don’t have the last version.
