They are RAR files and show up on my laptop when I plug the usb in.

My car doesn’t have the option to update the navigation maps via idrive.

Any suggestions?

Thank you
You have to unzip them first before copying them into your usb. Once unzipped, it should result in a 4 folders I believe.

Thank you for your reply, I unzipped the files prior to copying them to the usb sticks.
I had previously done the same type of upgrade in 2016 and had no problems.
This time, the car doesn’t recognize the usb.

hmm thats interesting, hopefully others can chime in. For me, when i plugged it in, the idrive recognized right away. However, I am having trouble getting the script to pull the 1b file for me after trying it on 3 different usb.

I reformatted the usb sticks, reloaded the maps on my laptop. Unzipped them and copied the cofig and pkgdb files only onto each of the 4 usb sticks ( not the entire usb folder, but the two inside items of each usb folder). This is what worked for me in 2016.
Will try to load the maps to my car tomorrow and will post here if successful or not.

Thank you!!! portalseo & Jagaer .
I have been doint this procedure for about 3 times from the Romanian BMW club forum without success because of the FSC Generator program. The 1b.hex file extracted from the glovebox had exactly 319 bytes and checking it with hex editor program contained also my VIN.
Just added the extracted file in the FSC Generator and my FSC code was generated automatically "LIFETIME code" for Road Map Europe Premium EAST 2018-1.
