2011 335d  [0.00]
Downloaded the torrent a month ago and finally got around to the install this week. Took about 45m for the import of map data.

Dracon provided me with a code very quickly and at a great price, I highly recommend his services!


note for Mac users: I used my coding VM in parallels to format and correct the usb key. This is the process I followed.

1) mounted usb key in VM - if you have Parallels just tell it that you want the VM to use the key and not the mac host.

2) installed the HP usb key tool. Not sure if it's still available for download but I had a saved copy which I can provide to anyone who needs it. Win7 by default will only format the key with NTFS or exFAT (mine was 64gb). The HP tool formatted it to FAT32.

3) eject key in parallels, unlplug then reinsert for use with macos. From there I copied the config file and pkgdb folders over. Took about an hour.

4) eject key in macos, move back over to the VM and reinsert. Tell parallels to have the VM use the USB

5) delete the .Ds_store and spotlight folders. basically all the hidden stuff macos creates. you just want the config file & pkgdb folders left. Eject and plug it in the car

Hello, so I bought BMW Navigation Professional 2013 on DVD-R from one guy. I tried to insert DVD into car but nothing happens. Tried download navigation from internet, burned with 2x speed on Verbatim DVD-R and my car still doesn't load DVD.. Tried it with USB sticks too.. Any recommendation please?

Have E90 2009 with hard drive.
Thank you

You have the wrong update. 2009 models with CIC use the PREMIUM maps, not the PROFESSIONAL maps.

Professional is for the older CCC based iDrive units only and cannot be used to update the CIC.

2014 maps for North America are shipping to dealerships now. Should be available in the next few days.

2014 for Europe may be a few months.

Renik,

As I stated earlier, you have the wrong maps.

You need Road Map Premium for the CIC, Road Map Professional is for the CCC and will not work at all (completely different map data formats).

I'm assuming you are from Europe (you are marked as from Slovakia).

You will need these maps to update your car.

Who is the provider for the mapping data? I was reading that some users found the 2013 version to be worse than the previous years as BMW switched the mapping provider.

My car doesn't have a CD/DVD slot for maps. I'm interested in a 2014 map update. How do I get one?

It will be option code 609 on your build sheet / VO.

You can check your options here and see:

Thanks for your help in this. So BMWVIN says I have the "S609A Navigation System Professional". Is my car good to have the 2014 map update?

If you have 609 Nav in an 2012 E9x, you must have CIC Head Unit, and it must have a CD / DVD drive.

In any event, with CIC, your map update would be through the glovebox USB Port.

Anyone needs an update you can contact me on details at alex@alpinemss.com or PM me, direct downloads available, no torrents needed.
So are you charging people for this? If so I gotta say that is pretty mean. This thread was created to share the 2013 maps for FREE. The media is only like $50 from Tischer.

I think your confused with the understanding of what's free, and what's not, the maps itself you can obtain a copy for free, but it requires an activation code to install, and there isn't a single person on these forums offering that for free or for as cheap as I do.
Oh. I didn't realize you were offering the FSC code along with the download. There are others on the forums that sell these as well ($60 for the 2013 maps if I recall correctly). If you are selling the FSC code for less then I stand corrected. Thanks for your support of the forums then. :-)

Stuck at this screen! Formatted as FAT32 on windows PC, same memory stick I used for my 2013 update (trying to go to 2014), hasn't asked for FSC yet! Any ideas?

UPDATE: Alex is the man, I was trying to uncompressed the 3 files he sent me into one folder (like my 2013 update) you have to do each of the sets of files he sends you at a time!
