Standard commute for me. The update will stop when the power's cut off and it will ask you to restart it once you turn the car on again. Nav will restart after it's uploaded and you're good to go.

Great thread. First post. Downloaded maps to usb stick, paid Sergej and updated navigation. It worked great. Now I can see the street I live on. Dealership wanted $325 to update maps so the forum saved me some $$.

Updated to 2013 maps successesfully! Thanks Dracon!

Got some help from Dracon with the FSC process and just performed the update. Worked great!

Dracon, thanks for the help.

Just updated and DRACON supplied me the FSC code.
Great communication and he's very fast.
He has the maps available for you, but I already had mine from a torrent a while back.
Would recommend!

BMW does not update it for free if my car is under the warranty?

I had it updated to E89x-10-12-503 which is v40.2 a while back as part of the software recall for the HPFP. Because of this update I was able to use the USB to update the maps. Not sure which version USB update was enabled in.

Question, how do you know which version of the firmware is on the vehicle? Where are you able to retrieve that yourself or is that a dealer visit type of thing?

cruzine: I believe someone said earlier in the thread that if you can press the idrive knob and cause the gray status overlay window to go away your software is updated. I didn't know about it before mine had been updated, so can't verify.

You could also download the torrent, put it on a stick, plug it in, and see if the car recognizes it. If it asks for an FSC code you're good to go, if not then you need to update (or you goofed up the process)...

The easiest non-techy way is to goto the dealer and ask for a key print out. They scan your keyfob. Look for the line on the print out that says integration level.

Compare it to this link to get the software version.

Thanks to Dracon , I could complete the 2013 map update without any problems. Not only did I receive help in obtaining the 2013 map file, which I transferred to a new 32GB memory stick as directed, but within few minutes Dracon was able to provide me the FSC code.
I completed the update while driving - took about an hour, but it was a seamless installation.

So how are retailers (often sketchy looking) getting the FSC codes anyway? I assume none of this is technically legal and they've cracked the authentication methods. The fact that some are willing to provide the maps data as well (copyrighted intellectual property, illegal to transfer) leads me to believe that they're profiting off of piracy.

Also, I'm rather curious what they're charging for these codes.

Can someone please PM me the torrent address for the 2013 CIC map updates? I want to test that my car will take the update before I pay for an FSC code.

Thanks,

Tommyudo

First off, thanks to those who made this post happen! I'm trying to download the file via the torrent but it's going at a SLOW 3K/s. If anyone has any other way to get the file to me, I will then keep it seeded here at my office. (I can give you an FTP address or whatever you prefer). I'm a Network Admin and have direct access to our 200Mbps connection. :-) If not, I'll just wait the "11 weeks" and then do so, LOL....course it'll probably end up not being seeded at all by then :-(

Thanks again! Just got into the world of BMWs last week and hope to be around this site more often!

Well I got a printout and I see three I-items.
- iLevel.iLevelBackup
- I-stage DO
- I-stage Plant

I presume "I-stage DO" is what's currently installed on the car, is that correct?

You are correct.

iLevel.iLevelBackup is your previous software version
I-stage DO is your current software version
I-stage Plant is your original software version from the factory

I am in the EXACT same boat! I'm stuck at 84% downloaded and there's nobody seeding. If anyone would be so kind to seed for a little bit I think we could get enough people at a completion level to keep this torrent going.

PLEASE SEED!!! Oh, and a big thank you for everyone that has contributed to this post. I just bought an X5M and am in the process of updating the maps.

I know I should just shut up but you guys do know that for a whole $40 you can get the file legitimately on a USB drive (presumably a 32g one you get to keep) and not have to deal with any of this?!?

I mean seriously, what's your time worth not to mention the questionable ethics/legality of this method.
