well not really sure what's going on....

now I re encoded the original binary through the site and got a working base64....

something I found out is that the name of the file does matter....

good.hex will generate a different code than bad.hex even if the files are exactly the same.... the good code that the car accepted was generated with KS91992_00DE0001.fsc

now wonder if either code would work

That did an ASCII compare, these are binary files.

Try fc /b <file A> <file B>

to perform a binary comparison.

I can't see how two identical files could generate different results.

As I said before, I think something something wrong is happening with your encoding and/or decoding.

what is the correct parameter for 2015-1 NEXT for NA? Is it 0xA8 0x07?

It's 0xA8 0x06

You can check by looking in the Info_Map.imp file.

The region code is 2 bytes at offset 8, and the sequence number is the 2 bytes after that.

Thanks. I actually tried 0xA8 0x06 and it worked.

Like the poster above, I just read FSC from car using E-Sys, and without encoding, i used the following command:

nbt.exe DE.fsc 0xA8 0x06 <7DIGITVIN>

Map is currently updating

Well, I managed to get my FSC code for my M4 ready to put it in...
When it finished loading the maps from the USB stick (2014-2 Europe NEXT) it started with no request for the FSC code!!!!

Why is this, have they stopped using FSC codes?

AFAIK, FSC codes are still used. If the car needs a new FSC code, it prompts for it before it starts loading the new maps.

For your case, I think the FSC code built into your car at the factory was already enabled for the 2104-2 map (sequence 0x05) even though it was loaded with 2014-1 (sequence 0x04). I've heard of this happening in the US too.

I'm guessing that when you start the installation of a new map, the software checks that the map region codes match and only prompts for a new FSC code if the installing map sequence number is greater than the sequence number stored in the cars' current FSC.

This would explain the ability to revert maps to prior versions (which I have heard other people doing) without having to re-install an old FSC code.

This has interesting implications!

While visiting the plant in SC the other day, I was told that new production cars will automatically update the NAV through the 4G connection built into cars... They said it started with some 2014 models and should be in the 2015's... I was told they are not charging for them (that it was built into the price of the car)... Fact or some employee hearing from somebody else and relaying - not sure - but that is what the guy told me... So this could be your case why it didn't ask for FSC code? not sure... (but then again, if it was your case, then it should have already updated the maps I suppose).

Thanks to the information in this thread I have been able to update to the Europe Next 2014-2 maps.

I used E-Sys to obtain / create the .fsc file.

The question I have will this .fsc data ever change or will I be able to use the same file on my next map update?

I presume it would only change if the car was updated?

You can use the same FSC file. I used my previously pulled FSC file to upgrade to 2015-1 maps.

I think I'm very close but perhaps missing a step. I got the FSC directly from E-sys. It is in hex and 256bit. From what I gathered by reading here I should be able to do what exactly F30EDR mentioned but I'm getting error that my FSC file is not in correct format.
I really appreciate any help I can get.
