Default $275 for Audi to update MMI firmware

I called University Park Audi in Dallas to ask them how much would it cost to update my firmware for my 2006 A6. They said it's about 2 hours to get done and $275. Why does that just seem not right?!?! My question would be, is there a download that we can just do ourselves and burn onto disc and our MMI system would just pick it up? For some strange reason my system won't store any sites I choose in the navigation. Everything else seems to work. It's very annoying. Any help on this is appreciated. Thanks gang.

Is your car out of warranty?
Call more dealers and compare the options.

IMHO - (with direct experience) - Navigation is pure waste of $$$.

Price is about right. A few forum members have tried doing it themselves and have reported frying the MMI module and then spending $1200 to replace the module. A few other forum members were able to do it themselves succesfuly.

He will need to update the MMI if it's original 06 mmi, it takes 6 CD's (I think) and a very specific process..then he'll be able to get newer maps, POI's etc..I consider it a 'must have' when I go unknown areas even though the maps are limited..nothing like my Megellan but definitely convenient, shop around for that better deal if the price doesn't include a newer Nav v DVD, talk'em in to it.

that's not a bad idea. maybe i can ask the dealer to throw in a map disc with the mmi update if i go that route. one other question is, have any of you guys bought the Navi disc from Navimaps? he is selling the 2010 navigation disc for $75 on this forum. Just seeing if anyone has used him and if the maps are legit?
