2009 CIC are fine as long as they have had a firmware update. My updated 2009 CIC is identical to one I got from a 2013. Check to see if you have the check/tick shown in the lower left-hand corner of the pic below. If you have that, your CIC firmware is new enough to accept USB map updates. If not, you can only get the old DVD updates which are no longer being updated.

To get a firmware update you need the dealer to do a full car software update. 1 - 2 hours of labor depending on the dealer. Or DIY with a BMW ICOM fiber interface. Either option takes a few hours so this is not a simple process.
