I didn't end up getting it done in the end, you have to have a complete software upgrade for the car, it was around 180 however as my car is no longer under warranty they couldn't guarantee it if anything went wrong and I would be liable for any costs if it did so I decided not to go ahead, if your car is still in warranty then you may be able to get it updated F.O.C

I've used him too, no problem. Will update to 2013 sometime soon.

I also vouch for *******. Got my update last week and it works great. I will definitely go back to him when the 2013 maps are out.

Satnav update

Just wanted to add my recommendation for *****************. My nearest BMW dealer wouldn't sell the discs alone and wanted 22 for the discs + 190 for code + 150 labour - all or nothing!

Next dealer would sell separately - discs 33 and code 190.

***************** gave an almost immediate reply, wanted 50 for the code (42), and code arrived withtin half an hour. Worked perfectly.

Total cost 64 - saving 298.

As you will have discovered if you updated yourself, there is no effort to the update at all. For a dealer to quote 150 labour is scandalous. Name and shame - BMW GB should remove their franchise, robbing c*nts.

Well, after this very helpful thread.

I received my discs from BMW in the post this morning. Sent an email (after paying my 50) to Sieras and received my code in less than 10 minutes

Currently sat in the car and I'm on disc 3 at 88.3%

But it'll be worth the wait and soon I should have the latest Premium 2012 maps

I questioned that when I received them and was told these were the most up to date maps! 2013 would not be released until 2013!

Could you let me have the part no and I'll question this again with them!

94.4% and counting...

2013 are definitely available as I have them. However, I downloaded them so I do not have a part number.

Hi I'm looking to get the 2013 update for my pro CIC HDD, anyone have a good link to grab the files from.

Can't see them on any file sharing sites and the link on gpsunderground has tons of files on sites that load a ton of pop ups and rubbish so not keen to use that!

Thanks

When I did it I used the bittorrent available here:

http://pirateproxy.net/torrent/76206...e_PREMIUM_2013

Then burnt the .iso images contained to three dual-layer DVD+R discs. I used ***************** for the FSC code.

Hoping the dealer will get back to me today to arrange that.

Already spoke to Sieras about the code and he confirms it was actually a 2013 code which works with the 2012 disc. The code can also be used more than once, which means I'm OK on that front.

Dear all,

How can you tell what version of maps you have.

Can someone tell me what I have to do to find out what satnav software version/maps I have?

Cheers.

Go to your Nav screen
iDrive knob to the right two or three times.
Then scroll right down to the bottom.

Viola!
