 On the DVD the maps are stored as cab files and on the MMC card these
maps seem to be dirs. Turns out you can use cabextract -d /tmp
Italy.cab and then copy to mapdata_Italy on the card. Seems the
current region is called just mapdata.

Trying to use  update.navicore.com requires you to download a windows binary :(
