wont load from USB

Still having trouble.
Checked my current software using VIN # and the BMW site said it was current with no updates needed or available.

Looking at the USB it shows several files for the 2013 Nav, but only a few GB's of space used.

Should I download again and start over?

The first download took about a day and a half.

Anyone have a loaded USB they would be willing to lend or sell me?

Thanks

Also you can just leave the usb plugged in the glove box until it is finished,when ever you turn off the car and start it up the next time it will pick up where it left off until such time you have logged about 45 minutes of driving time to complete the task.

x2 to all the above. I payed for the activation code, and my car did not request the code, it simply started the update. Likewise, I had to stop the car for an appointment, and as noted above, it simply picked up the update where it left off.

Interesting. I have the newest firmware and it still askes me for a code. Maybe because I have a 2009 ?

Hello all,

I was getting a shuttle ride from my dealership to work today in a 2013 5 series. I noticed the map now has traffic indicators for inside street (not just highway). I have 2011 E92 with CIC (I think). If I update to 2013 map will this get me the local street traffic.

If yes, how do I go about getting the new map without paying $300+?

Thank you.

yes, mine worked - but I'd already had it in the dealership for updates/coding prior to trying it. (I'd added the Sirius tuner and alarm system and paid the dealership to code those in and apparently they applied all applicable updates at the same time.) I think my build is 9/2008, I'm pretty sure

Thanks for the response N8N! Did the dealer charge for the firmware update?

it was a $150 flat fee for coding, and I guess they needed to do all updates at the same time. I would ASSume that they will charge for updates if not required for other work and you're out of warranty... I just don't know though

Hard to get most dealers to update software without an actual problem, even if you offer to pay. A few will, but most are reluctant for whatever reason.

How do I enable 3D buildings

I'm at my wits end here. I do have 3D terrain mapping showing up when I zoom out to .25Miles, however, when I'm in downtown metropolis area (Seattle or Bellevue in my case), I don't see the 3D buildings like I would expect to.

Anyone from Seattle please jump in and let me know whether you're able to.

I have followed all kinds of guidelines, turn traffic info OFF, be in Night Mode etc etc. NADA.

Super SUPER sad face guys. HELP!

oh and yeah I have upgraded to the 2013 maps.

Hi All

Anyone have the 2013 Nav loaded on a USB that they would be willing to loan or sell?
Let me know.
Thanks

I think the local street traffic is a feature of the new NBT based Navigation units (the successor to the CIC you have).

But if you still want to update your maps to 2013, you'll need to download the maps from the torrent in this thread. Then you'll need to get an FSC code from someone who can supply them.

There's a couple people who can generate the map codes, including myself you can reach out to and get them alot cheaper than the dealership.

Does anybody know the BMW part number for the 2013 maps on USB? I can't find it at getbmwparts.com (formerly Tischer). Thanks.

Never mind - found it: http://www.getbmwparts.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

Are you talking about the BMW site that tells you if your Combox bluetooth software is up to date? One one where you download a .bin to put on USB to update what phones work with the car?

I don't think that site has anything to do with the rest of the software in your car, particularly the software the allows the Nav system to update maps from USB.
