Updating Sat Nav

I posted this in the audio forum but thought its probably better here:

I have a European 07/2009 build E90 with professional navigation. i think its option 609.

basically i found out the other day it has the 2008-2 version of European premium! so i phoned BMW Park Lane, where i bought it from, and had to argue with them for quite a while, explaining that i think its unacceptable for a 07/2009 build car to have 2008-2 sat nav. they finally agreed and sent me a free 2009-2 disk.

i have now found out, from other BMW dealers, that this disk will not work! apparantly because my sat nav doesnt have a disk, its needs to get coded as well.

i got a quote and BMW will charge 220 (20 disk and 200 for just a code!) and around 100 for labour. so about 320 just to update my nav to 2012!!

I was wondering if there was a way i could get this done cheaper by third parties?
