Help Alfa 166 ICS&Nav updates database

Ciao alfisti,
I'm building a database of all the updates made for the Alfa Romeo 166 ICS and navigation system to make it freely available to all the alfisti.
I started this project because the need to pass trough some mid update (that they are no more available from Navteq) in order to use the latest update if you come from a very earlier version.

So I ask you all to contribute to the database with updates CDs (must be Alfa genuine not Opel or "remix") and original equipment CD of whatever country, I've contacted several Italian owners and the database is rapidly growing.
Actually I've 2 CD for G2 (Italy 1998 and 1999) and 1 CD for G3 unit (Germany 2002) and I'm waiting 4 more CD (Italy).

Grazie

Stefano

i've got a 2001 GB image somewhere if that's any good? It is a dual G2 and G3 disc and is the last available for the G2. The important disc is the later one though that does the update for G3 (around 2003?)

I think I have two CDs. G2 covering Germany and "major roads". From 2000 or 2001 I think.

The last update for G2 is the 2003 CD, in Italy at least.
I think that the discs containing the indispensable updates are the 2003 and the 2006 (maybe all CD after the 2003 and after 2006 they contain them).

While I'm building the database with the CDs required for the functioning of the latest updates it doesn't cost to much to add all the other CDs, even for "historical" reason, then alfisti decide which they need.

Sadly I don't have a public IP so I can't make an ftp by myself, in the meantime I use a free file hosting service to obtain the image from the owners.
I'm looking for a long-term solution.

NAVTEQ - Alfa AIUI, - they work perfectly and show the Alfa Dealers on the map (I think!) so must be Alfa.

Good answer from Pomeo ... and on the Opel CDs there's no ICS update and Alfa dealers.

I'll keep the image you gave me, maybe I'll make an unofficial CD with 2010 maps and put it aside the database.
