If it's a pre Sep 2008 build, then you have a DVD based navigation. Just eject the DVD disk from the drive to see what version it is.

If it's post Sep 2008, then it's Hard Drive based (for Professional - not sure about Business). You can find the version thru iDrive.

There's also 2 versions, Business or Professional. You can verify by the size of the screen (6.5" for Biz, 8.8" widescreen for Pro).

+1 I'm still using the Professional Navigation V13 for our X5, does anyone in Sydney has a newer version? If not, does anyone know where I could buy a copy without getting raped by the dealer?

Did you download from the link above? Does it have the school zones etc??? I think I got it but It seems a little slower (I burnt to a cd) than the dvd I have and I don't see any difference.

It could be I am a little slow and need to change some setting on the iDrive?

The business one from the site are 2009 with a lot of roads missing or shown as to be constructed. Still an improvement from V13 especially considering it didn't cost. I also experienced a slight lag of approx 2-3 seconds when selecting address information, but otherwise once address is keyed in works fine.

True. It seems the updates stop at V16 unless we buy a new car.

Moral behind the story. Do not rely on in-car navigation. Once the car is more than 5 years old...maps are outdated and manufacturers will not bother about outdated models. Get a Garmin!!

LOL. Yeah the new 3 series looks like it has a portable GPS on the dash...without the suction cups!!

Was wondering if the software for the new lci models with the hard disk navigation can be burned onto a dvd/cd-r. This would be one way to update our maps if it's possible at all. Hmm..
