Just to clarify, did Wayne remove it before he went to the dealers, and use your device to remove the codes, or was the map left on with codes? Or is he not sure as he bought the car with the map from someone else?

Your site says .....

- Switch to standard or tuned map within 5 mins
- Easy to use
- Reads and clears fault codes
- Available worldwide

I guess there is always a chance BMW will develop new ways of detecting maps - I'm not that bothered about that - its a risk - but would just like to be clear whether you can remove codes with the switch unit?

I'm guessing "obvious" codes that could be left on during remapping may suggest a map being present, which would light up the dealer machine during a normal OBD plug in session (whatever that might be).
He removed it. Whether or not he removed codes in his case was irrelevant as the new codes can not be currently be removed by the switch device. This was something new from BMW which we had never seen them do before otherwise you would have seen reports of it before.

Yes I can ship to France for the same price.
