They are really dealer instructions, but:
read out map status in radio
connect charger to battery
disconnect all external media at radio
switch on radio
fold open display and insert SD card
press "OFF" button 10 to 12 seconds until illumination of radio and button goes out, switch on again. Update starts automatically
Insert activation code.
I don't see any way you can get around going to a dealer, but at least the good news is that you should definitely be able to get maps.
You can direct him/her to the website if he/she has no clue....
