Sergej provided the FSC code at 3:45am. Just waiting on Amazon to deliver my USB flash drive.

I will seed for a little bit but my dsl connection has poor upload speeds.

I just connected and I'm wondering which torrent you have .. I am seeing at least 9 seeders right now and no one is connecting to me. I'll leave my laptop running for the rest in the afternoon.

Anyone from Seattle tried this?

I hit Sergej up with my info and he was quick in his response requesting my VIN.

I'm pretty sure I've read each posting on this thread, however, I just wanted to put it out there just in case I missed something.

I'm going to be trying to upgrade a 2009 M3 Sedan with the 2013 mapping software. Any got'chas that I should be aware of? As far as I can tell, I need to validate which firmware version my car's running which should then determine whether it'd be possible to perform the USB upgrade correct?

Ok I have one question - how do you convince the stealership to get you the FSC code and for those that have successfully been able to do this, was it a relatively easy task? I just want to be prepared and know exactly what to ask for when I go in tomorrow.

I have a feeling that they'll tell me they cannot "sell" me this information unless I pay for the upgrade procedure from them... just because it's the way they inherently are.

Why would you go to the dealer if you've downloaded the map updates and you're getting the FSC codes from Sergej?

Worked perfectly!

I downloaded the file, got the code from Sergej and it worked perfectly. Am going to start seeing again today and leave it up all weekend. This forum saved me a LOT of money. Thanks to all involved!

Sorry - I meant to say the Nav firmware update that would allow me to upgrade to the 2013 maps using USB.

Fortunately, after going to this link: I was able to verify that my iDrive version is the latest - WOOO HOOO!

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/nav...update_vin.jsp

For anyone interested, after entering my VIN, here's the message I got back:

Software update with BMW ConnectedDrive.

You are running the latest software. There is no software update available.
To perform the software update via USB stick, you will require the USB audio interface (included in optional equipment codes 6FL, 6NK or 6NL) as well as the Control Display and iDrive. This offer is only available for selected vehicles manufactured after March 2010. Your vehicle can be updated provided that you have the ‘Software update’ option on your ‘Settings’ menu in the Control Display.


With this information, I was able to connect with Sergej, procure the FSC code, and the rest is history.

Basically, I saved a ton of money "by switching to Geico"


Whoda thunk it sticking it to the stealership would be this much fun!

THANK YOU SERGEJ!!!!!!!!!!!

My car was produced in July of 2009 and I was able to load the maps from the USB port.

I have one tip to pass on that I haven't seen mentioned. If you happen to have an external hard drive with a USB interface, you can use that instead of a flash drive. You just have to make sure that the drive is formatted for FAT32 before loading the NAV files to it. I used an old backup drive to do mine instead of buying a new flash drive and it worked like a charm.

Question

Now that I have upgraded to the 2013 maps, what do I have to do (or where must I drive to) in order to see the 3D building maps??

Good question. I finished my update yesterday, thanks to Sergej. I have not been able to find the 3D building view. I'm beginning to think it's a hardware issue. Nothing that map updates can fix. I have a 2010 X6 with a build date of 11/09. No buildings on mine!

OK, I got it. You have to go into your navigation options, and uncheck the traffic/gray maps box.

that's not exactly what it's called, but something like that. Once you uncheck the box you can go into night mode and also see buildings while driving in a city.

How does what work??? The update? Download the maps, buy an FSC code for your car from someone who has access to them and then install it. The process is pretty much explained throughout this thread. Good luck!

BMW CIC NAVIGATION NORTH AMERICA 2013 Upgrade quick guide:
Ok, read through all 20+ pages and completed my upgrade. Here's a quick guide for everyone. So you can skip all these pages. Although I recommend reading it.

1. Download the map via torrent. (attached file) For those who don't know what torrent is, please google it. (dowload took about 10 hrs. Depends on your internet speed)

2. Contact ******* for your FSC Code. You need this code before you can start updating, without a code you cant do anything. I (and many others here) have got our FSC codes from *******. His email is ***************** As for price, you need to email him. (got code within 10 mins after payment)

3. After your map download finishes. You'll need to put your 2013 map into a USB Drive. Reference this guide (click me) on how to do that and to begin your update. (update took about 45 mins)

Done!

Below are my navi photos:

Version before the update:


Version after the update:


3D Mode:


Good Luck, Hope this helps!!
