Do a search on cic upgrade.

Loads of posts about it.

It's not just the software - you need to change the hardware as well - you are looking at 1k to do the whole lot inc coding.

Do you want to change the software of your current DVD set up or do the full hard disk CIC upgrade to the current style Pro Nav?

If it's just a software upgrade then I think this can be done through a map update.

I want to upgrade my current DVD software, so it looks like the newer versions.....if this can be done by a map update that would be a winner.

I have got 2012 maps.......

You need to do the full hardware update for that then.

The system you are running is ccc which has DVD based maps and you want to the cic set up with has the hard drive.

Agree a full nav system change is required for this, however it is possible to get a software update for the older DVD based version-I've just had it added to my 07 E90. However it only updates the graphics-the (annoying) functionality remains the same.

Is there any way of making it start on the map page when the car turns on, rather than computer mode?!

My car was at my local dealer for some warranty work and they did it-uploaded all the latest software for the car.
