1 Switch off ignition and withdraw ignition key.
2 Switch on operating unit with ON touch switch and wait about
10 s until operating unit is correctly switched off.
3 Press keys * and # at the same time and hold and switch on
unit with ON switch. Wait until download screenis displayed,
then release keys.

First of all RET alone, then 2 and 3 (and 9) at the same time.
6 For download with ICAN activity (if ICAN active, download
stops endlessly in the case of checking CD) press keys 1 and 3
at the same time (before start of download!)

knob and press on rotary knob.
8 The download now runs automatically in two stages and takes
about 45 minutes in total.
9 Confirm final message with OK, remove download CD and

Procedure in the case of download problems
If the download does not continue running or takes significantly more
than 45 minutes:
Remove fuse F61 (for radio/sound/COMAND operating unit and
navigation) and insert again. This fuse is located in the right below the rear seat bench in the footwell (fuse and relay box below right rear seat). The fuse box is enclosed with a black rectangular plastic cover and can easily be opened without a tool. A drawing of the fuse assignment is provided at the vehicle tool kit in the trunk above the spare wheel. F61 is the 5th, counting from the middle of the vehicle, and the 14th, counting from the door (long row of fuses with a total of 18 fuse positions, not all of which are fitted).
After this, once again start the download process.
