Upgrade for navigation system

I'm trying to find a disc to upgrade the maps on the stock radio/navigation system in my 2012 fortwo. The maps in it now are 2010/2011 are are outdated pretty bad. I've tried the Mercedes dealer and they say they are waiting on a disc from Smart (but this has been going on for 3 months now). Any help would be appreciated.

I've upgraded two navigation systems so far...

...(car based ones, that is), and in each case getting the new data disks was not a walk in the park.

The one from Toyota took a couple of months, one because the upgrade was not ready yet, and one to get the thing delivered. Once received, it was a simple matter to eject the old one and fire up the new.

The one from Pioneer (for the smart mounted unit) took a little less time, but it came in the form of a SD card and required a complex install process, one that required me to idle the car for a half hour while the install took place.

In both cases, the 'new' data was 'obsolescent' within a year - you'll never be 100% up to date.
