The link works - the file is almost 3GB as a download even over broadband shees - that's an overnighter at least!!!

If all else fails I will update my 2006-1 camera database, but I hope to crack the 2007-2 problem by the end of the week with any luck.
I hate starting something and not being able to finish it.

Alex - Thanks for the info.
An official 0702 disc may fall into my hands quite soon. I have offered to add speed camera data to it for someone and a copy might find its way onto my PC.

When I have it I will PM you.

Had an email from Navteq today, they advised that if the cars system is CD based they can provide 2007-2, but if it's DVD based it must be supplied by BMW.

What I find strange with that is, I was not aware that any 3 series 2006 onwards were CD based, unless the business version is CD based ??

Also the High version is no good for iDrive.

At a tangent to this thread, but still slightly relevant.

Today, I received a letter from BMW UK offering the 2007-2 DVD for 99+my old genuine Nav DVD.

Still overpriced, but worthy of consideration (I think they must have hired the Banker from "Deal or no deal" as head of their special offers dept

True, I received my letter today, sounds a lot better than the 250 quoted last week. :rocks:

Well at last I have everything working.

Took a trip to the dealer to pick up my 2007-2 offer at 99.
However was told that because of the offer, stocks had run out and it would be 3 weeks before new stocks arrived.

I asked if they could just try a 2007-2 out of another vehicle, to confirm that my vehicle did or did not require a iDrive software update.

He agreed and returned with a brand new 2007-2, undid the wrapping and stuck the DVD in the drive.
He did not even wait 5 minutes, hit the iDrive knob over to Navigation and BINGO, there was the 2007-2 Map in all it's glory.

He then looked at my existing DVD 2006-1 and said he thought there was a problem with this version and may be possible to exchange it for the 2007-2.

He then ejected the 2007-2 and put my 2006-1 back in and it popped up the error "DVD Read Error".

That's what I thought would happen he said, so off we went back inside.
After a few minutes my 2006-1 was exchanged for the 2007-2.

Once I was back home I ejected the original and stuck my mod version in.

At last it's working.

Now is there some code on the original, that's hidden because other than sticking the original in for a couple of minutes the mod would not work without it.

You would think that the copy was no different to the original other than the added POI camera files.

Beats Me.
