Your car should come with the latest NAV disc which has the postcode search.

You can add speed camera data to it following the instructions here:

http://www.bmwnavaddpoi.co.uk/

If you can make an ISO of the disc I can e-mail you the altered files. All you would need to do is insert these into your ISO and burn back to DVD.

I haven't signed up for the BMW assist option, but as I understand it you press the assist button which starts a call to the BMW team. You can then ask for directions, phone numbers etc which they can download direct to your nav.

So if you wanted directions to a hotel and it's tel no they would beam them down to your idrive for you.

Unfortunately there is no map update support so you either need to keep buying new nav discs or obtain them by other means
