Navdy-MapDownloader vmware image
Other than the direct download method, the only way to update an existing offline maps database is via HERE mobile sdk's.
These can only be used on a PC with an android emulator.
The quickest way to get up and going with this is my pre-build vmware image.
See the walkthrough here: https://youtu.be/RjamxmK6CmU
Get the prebuild vm at: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1322778262904012164
Requires VMware Player to be pre-installed (free on Windows and Linux): https://www.vmware.com/au/products/workstation-player.html
On mac, VMware Fusion would work however it does cost money.
Virtualbox may work on mac/linux but is untested as I've never been able to get it's usb work on Windows.

Other Android emulators
This is an android app by EdwXD which we are going to run in an emulator on computer.
If you've updated your navdy display to my unofficial alelec firmware you'll want this:
If you're on the original display firmware from navdy you'll need the maps v4 version:
Most android emulators are set up to run games and/or force you to log into google play. We don't need this so I recommend installing a kiosk app to make it easier to use for maps updates.
This one works for me, download the apk from here: https://apkpure.com/gokiosk-kiosk-lockdown-android/net.intricare.enterprisedevicekiosklockdown
Install KOPLAYER (http://www.koplayer.com/)
Follow the youtube to install and run Navdy-MapDownloader to update your maps:
Note: in the video I install app-debug.apk, this is the Navdy-MapDownloader apk downloaded above.
Install Nox: https://www.bignox.com/
Download EdwXD's Navdy-Nox-Mounter:https://gitlab.com/navdy-hackers/Navdy-Nox-Mounterhttps://gitlab.com/navdy-hackers/Navdy-Nox-Mounter/uploads/0a73903e1c6aaf90d6c85b43e9ec28f7/Navdy_Nox_Mounter_v1.0.zip
Install the Navdy-MapDownloader and kiosk apk's from above similar to the youtube in windows instructions.
While nox is running, start Navdy Nox Mounter and plug your navdy.
Bind the navdy flash drive to nox like so: https://gitlab.com/navdy-hackers/Navdy-Nox-Mounter/raw/master/preview.gif
Then start Navdy-MapDownloader in nox and use as per the youtube
