Another 2009 success!

Build date of 10/08

Downloaded the torrent in 12 hours and copied to USB stick in 30 minutes. Got the fsc code from (******* at inbox.lt) in an hour and updated the car in 45 minutes.

All in all, pretty painless.


ps. my car had the shopping car update done in mid-late 2009.
*******'s price is very reasonable.

Bam! I am done, Sir! Can't see anything that has changed though... Except for Route Information, maybe that is old...

Plug USB into glovebox. Wait a few minutes for it to recognize it. Put in fsc code and wait 1 hour. Done

I tried that and it didn't work. It reads the flash drive but it doesn't ask if I want to update the map. Do I have to update the idrive firmware since my car is 05/09?

Check the other thread for DVD version.

Sidenote, so my car is at the dealer right now hopefully getting its software for the idrive updated!! and they even gave me an F30 as a loner. Alpine white on black nappa 328. I actually really like it and it drives just like my e90. Base seats suck compared to my sports package seats, but i do like the layout of the center console and idrive. New gear selector is pretty slick and the idrive screen (although no as wide) is nice up top on the dash. I do not like that they moved the cruise control to the steering wheel, i went to set it and it wasnt there! Eco pro on the highway is perfect and sport is perfect for around streets. Comfort isnt bad but i think id just leave it in sport day to day and use eco on the highway.

I got one of those new F30 loaners last time I was at the dealer as well. The one I got had the M-Sport package and was that awesome blue color they use on all the advertisements. Overall, I think the new 328 is a big step up above the E90 328. The little turbo motor really makes the car a lot more fun to drive as it isn't such a dog anymore, especially at low RPM. The new auto transmission shifts really fast, too. The different driving modes were fun to play with as well, and you could really feel the difference between them. I'm not sold on the interior layout, though. But overall, it is a pretty good car.

Just got my new F30 (2013 335i xDrive M Sport) since I lost the 2011 to Hurricane Sandy (anyone need a winter tire set for there e90? practically new). One change I love in the interior is the HUD - has speedometer, nav mini map pops up when a turn is coming up, and you can control the radio/satellite stations which display in the HUD using this rubber scroll wheel on the steering wheel. Sweet.

Thanks for hearing me whine guys..

my dealer just keeps fighting it with "there is no update available at this time" so i finally just told them that in order to update maps via USB, i am looking for this simple update." The car is already there for service anyways and i just had them inspect it as well. This is so frustrating dealing with them over a simple software update. Its not like i asked for a new transmission.


Update. Dealer denied there even is an update available. SA was no help. Either was the tech. Service manager is calling me Monday.

The other thread is for the Professional version DVD in-dash loading (CCC). I'm looking for the trunk loading Navigation System version.
I'm looking for the one like this:
http://www.bmwnavdvd.com/27-2013-bmw...-east-dvd.html
http://store.bmwgpsmaps.com/prod_01.aspx?

Any ideas where I can find a torrent for this one?
Thanks!

Technically what you're asking them to update is the vehicle's ISTA/P firmware/software. I know my car has version 2.37.1.0.1 (the X.37.X.X.X is the version number since they all start with 2 now). There is no way for the end user to check what version you have without coding tools, but the dealer told me what mine was. I believe the current version is now 47. They can hook your car up and see what version you have and I can almost guarantee you have a version older than 37 (I think the '09s shipped with version 33 or 34).

They're probably pretty reluctant to do it because from what I've been told, each module in the car needs to be updated separately and the whole process takes hours. It's a slow data transfer, multiple reboots, etc, and sometimes they have to repeat updating a module multiple times if it fails on the first try. It's definitely an all-day affair. The other reason they don't just do this at customer request is because it can also introduce new problems to other systems in the car since you're updating the entire car, not just the iDrive/navigation. Everything needs to be on the same page to talk to each other.

If they still claim there is no update, because of what you've already stated about your firmware behavior yours is old enough to be affected by the 'shopping cart bug'. This bug showed up in the first CIC vehicles where in you tell iDrive NOT to display POIs on the map, but even with every POI disabled when you zoom in to 400 feet or closer the shopping cart icon still displays. In urban areas with lots of shopping POIs the icons can literally cover the map and keep you from seeing the streets. The fix: update the ISTA/P because this was fixed in later versions. Here is the SIB that covers the problem.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
SI B 65 04 09
Audio, Navigation, Monitors, Alarms, SRS April 2009
Technical Service

SUBJECT
Shopping Cart Icons Displayed Permanently


MODEL
E82, E88 *(1 Series) from September 2008

E90, E91, E92, E93 *(3 Series) from September 2008

E60, E61 *(5 Series) from March 2009

E63, E64 *(6 Series) from March 2009

F01, F02 *(7 Series)

*with option 609 (NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL, CIC)


SITUATION
The shopping cart icon is permanently displayed in the navigation map display in scale 400 feet and below, even when the setting for display points of interest (POI) is set to "No Points of Interest".

When scale 800 feet and up is selected, it is not displayed.

CAUSE
Software issue in the Car Information Computer (CIC)

INFORMATION
Do not replace parts! Please explain the cause of the problem to the customer. This Service Information will be updated as soon as an improvement is available.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
Information only
--------------------------------------------------------------------

So if they don't want to fix your USB problem (because it may not be documented), you can go this route and get this problem fixed, which will by default fix your USB problem.

I have a 2009 and it required a hardware update (parts were ordered) and spent all night hooked up to their computer in order to take the 2012 maps. It was the first time it had been updated, thankfully they had told me the maps were up to date when I bought it so they covered it all otherwise it would have been very costly.

Is anybody willing to seed? I got to about 30% before the lone seeder disappeared. I promise to seed for at least a few days after I get the entire file. Thanks.

Unfortunately I don't. But if you give your SA that SIB number in bold listed above he should be able to pull it up.
