HOW do I enable this feature?

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)


again I ask - how do we enable 3D maps? I have a 2009 and it doesn't appear that this is an option?
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!!
Again I ask - HOW do I enable this? Is this feature only available in some navs? I have a 2009 vehicle

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.

just what he said.

Check night mode (if you like)
Check Satellite images
Check Perspective view in 3D
Uncheck the traffic/gray maps box

I don't have the "satellite images" option... is something horked? Do I need an upgrade @ the dealership to enable?

When I check version I have 112121.2.18 - NA Premium 2013-A

got the file off the torrent

I haven't seen anything 3D yet but I usually have the grey traffic maps enabled; I find it useful and I didn't know that that disabled 3D
thanks!

I think only the 2011 and newer show sat images. My 2009 did not, but my 2011 does.

Having "grey traffic maps enabled" does disable 3D. I tested it.

Well I was in Pittsburgh last night & did finally see 3D! I guess I must have had it set on grey map last time I was in DC.

Got the maps and the code but my 2011 doesn't detect the map update on my UBS stick. Is the car finicky with the type of memory stick used?

I used a 32 GB SD card with a USB reader so it's not that finicky. All I can suggest is to make sure your USB is in FAT32 format and the files are in the root folder of the drive.

Tischers BMW quote "CIC equipped vehicles up to 9/2009 require FSC Code + a visit to your local BMW dealership for media upload". Mine unfortunately has a build date of 09/08 so no go for me either. Don't know why yours won't read the USB stick though

Help

I've read through all the pages and have tried pretty much everything and still no luck. I plug in USB into the glove box and car doesnt recognize it. I called BMW to get firmware updated since i have a 2009 and told them i have the shopping cart bug issue. When they checked out my car they said it doesnt need an update and the shopping cart issue is non existant.

- Is BMW right in saying i have updated firmware since i dont have shopping cart issue?
- i am using a PNY 64GB memory stick formated to FAT32, should i try a different brand of memory stick?
- someone mentioned if i press down the idrive knob i can get rid of the cell reception icon, can you please clarify i want to make sure i have latest firmware and dealer isnt bs me.
- Anyone in the Toronto area that possibly has a usb stick with the update installed and would be willing to lend it to me?

Thanks Guys

You'll need to get a smaller usb drive. Like a 32GB. Anything larger than 32GB gets buggy when formatting it to fat 32. I had the same problem. gl!

Have you noticed if this problem is just with certain manufacturers or any make over 32gb......I believe some have used 64gb and it worked?

its 64GB in general. I had a SanDisk 64GB, had problems with it. Used another Sandisk 32GB. Worked out fine.

I figured out what I was doing wrong...I didn't read the instructions!! Because I updated the iDrive firmware using the UBS port located in the center console, I just assumed I was supposed to use the same for the map updates. After re-reading the instructions for the third time...I realized my dumb mistake. Use the port in the glove box... Thanks to Sergej for the code!

Just updated following the instruction in this thread! Downloaded via uploaded.net, got my code from Sergej, copied to a 32Gb flash drive, and it all worked like a charm! Update took almost an hour though.
