It's probably too complicated so il just pay the local go to guy. I got 2017 maps at moment, hel do it around £20. Btw I have connected the car through Dr Gini or FSC tools but I have no idea what to do there either.

The following is by far the easiest and most convenient way to pull your 1b file from your car and generate an FSC update code for your BMW CIC navigation unit (at least for me) and I haven't come across any other method that is easier.

Tools required:

-one usb stick.
- 1b.zip: Attached below.
- “bmw_cic_fsc_generator.zip“: Download Windows version from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lW0...ew?usp=sharing or directly from Jaeger's thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1453464
- Maps.zip: Attached below.

“1b.zip” contains the files necessary to pull the 1b file from your car via USB, “bmw_cic_fsc_generator.zip“ contains the FSC generator (a big thanks to user Jaeger and I hope he doesn't mind me using his generator as my preferred choice for generating fsc codes) and “MAPS.zip“ contains different map versions covering the most popular regions (North America, Europe and OZ/New Zealand).

First step: Pull 1b file from your car via usb stick.

1. Unpack the ZIP file (1b.zip) to the root of an empty USB stick
2. Power on your car (ignition on is fine, you don't need to start your car) and wait until the navigation system has started completely
3. Put the USB stick in the USB port in the glove box (do not use the usb port found in the middle console).
4. Wait for around 30 seconds
5. Remove the USB stick from the port in the glove box and put it in your (windows) computer
6. Check if the file 1b.hex is present on the USB stick (if not go to step 2 and try another USB stick). The file should be exactly 319 bytes in size and you can check your file by opening it with a hex editor such as HxD https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/

Second step: Generate your FSC code using Jaeger's FSC generator


1. Unpack the ZIP file (bmw_cic_fsc_generator.zip) in Windows/Mac (after unpacking wait for a couple of seconds for the generator to automatically download the file Lookup.xml")
2. Open the FSC generator by clicking on "BMW_CIC_FSC_Generator.exe" and select the 1b file you pulled from your car as described above.
3. Select desired map type, region and version to generate your code.

Last step: Download desired map version and install on USB stick:


1. Unpack the ZIP file (MAPS.zip) and click on your desired map version (make sure you have a bit torrent client installed) to download it.
2. Put the downloaded map on an empty USB stick (just make sure it has been formatted using fat32).


Plug the usb stick containing your downloaded map version in the glove box of your car and switch your ignition on. After a couple of minutes your CIC will prompt you to update your map version. Just enter your generated code and the update will commence automatically.
That's it, you're done and good to go!


Big thanks again to Jaeger for his excellent fsc code generator http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1453464.

Update: Maps.zip now contains a direct torrent download link for north america premium 2018-1 which supports both updating via dvd or alternatively via usb stick.


Having trouble, My F31 has an NBT Pro nav andI don't have a USB in the glove box.I tried get the 1b file using the USB in the arm rest, But that hasn't worked. Can anyone help? Looking to get the 1b file to work as reading it i know the genorator wont work on non CIC modles

Extra infomation, Using a USB 2GB 2.0 formatted to FAT with just the copie_scr.sh file in there

If you have a CIC with the right firmware, yes.

Many of us have been running the 2021 maps since last year.

What maps do you currently have installed? Use iDrive to find the map version and year (it should look something like post #701 https://www.e90post.com/forums/showp...&postcount=701).

If maps are PREMIUM, then this is the right thread.
Otherwise, you'll need to search other threads for your map type.

Your linked 1b file has an invalid decryption key (it cannot be downloaded).

Did your 1b.hex file contain a generic/incorrect VIN of 1234567 (characters 27 to 33)?

If so, refer to my comment (in another thread) for an alternative option: https://www.e90post.com/forums/showp...&postcount=283

I answered in the other thread too...

Once you fix the 1b file as Bcoz mentions, you can add the map and year codes to the configuration files to generate a newer map code...

See the other thread.

Thank you very much for your help, I coped with a trusted friend bcoz - Thank you very much!
For posterity, I will give tips on which I spent a while that were not necessary:
-My Cic connected using the Fierfox Browser without the need to set up getway, ip etc, everything went from the machine, I entered the ftp connection with ip in the browser and it connected, no password or login was required.
-My file that I downloaded in the first "searches" had vin "1234567" encoded, only somewhere at the end of the line there was a suitable VIN (important to check your vin) probably enough, thank you all for your help, I wish you a nice weekend!

Hello everyone, first post for me. I have a 2009 e92 M3 with BMW v 1.4.6 Road Map North America PREMIUM 2009-2. I have successfully downloaded the latest 2021 map files and have an FSC code for my vehicle VIN. I have copied the pkgdb and config.nfm files to the root of a 32GB flash drive formatted FAT32. When I turn on the ignition in the car and insert the USB stick into the glovebox USB slot after the Navigation systems boots nothing happens for me. I have tries multiple USB sticks and verified that I can back up mp3 files via the USB port so I know the port in the glove box is functioning. I have also tried downloading 2018 map files but still had no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There are a few possibilities...

Your CIC firmware is too old to do the update via the USB port...

You did not copy the files over correctly.

The USB drive has a partition table that is not recognized by the car.

The car's USB interface is not working properly.

You have the wrong maps for your CIC.

If the USB drive were to have been recognized correctly by the firmware you would have at the least seen the message offering to perform the update.

Hi guys, hoping someone has some answers here :-)

I have just swapped out CIC Business to CIC Professional and Navigation is greyed out.
So I followed the steps at the beginning of this post, managed to get the 1b.hex file and used the fsc generator to grab the activation codes.

I have downloaded the map files (EUROPE WEST PREMIUM 2021-1) and put them onto a 32GB FAT32 usb drive and inserted into glovebox USB port and the it shows the update available and activation screens. However both (non and lifetime) codes are not valid and it will not update.

First thing i have noticed is the generator offered ROAD MAP EUROPEAN WEST PREMIUM (USB) 2021-1 - a slightly different name to the map files I have downloaded. Should the names match? If they should match, it may explain what the codes are not working.

Secondly thing I have now noticed the 1b.hex file is not 319mb, instead its 1Kb. And I also noticed there is an fsc.bat file that came down from the the new CIC.

Have I done or not done something prior to attempting this nav update?

Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

Edit: the 1b hex file is indeed 319bytes.
And after reading the file with winhex, it seems it might contain the original VIN rather than my VIN ?!??

The FSC of your new CIC does not match your car.

The CIC should have been virginized first, and new enabling FSC's added to turn on navigation that match your vehicle.

That would permit existing tools such as the generator, to work properly.

That said there are other hack tools available to generate new enabling FSC's for your car.

Check out the other threads here about FSC's for retrofits and emulator equipped CIC's.

Ok thankyou, that makes sense. The new CIC came from a breaker, rather than a seller who deals in CIC's hence why its not tied to my car then?

Ok cool so as I understand it, I need to find a way of coding it to my car for the nav to be activated and work in the first instance. Then I can update it, right?

If you can apply an enabling FSC that makes the car believe the CIC is an OEM install, then yes the updates should work.

Otherwise you will need to use script activation for both Navigation and the maps.

Hey Guys,
I've read through the thread and don't think I've seen the questions asked yet but I am using an NTFS formatted USB drive and with the map *.rar files direct in the root and I can't seem to extract the 1b.hex? My Nav is NBT.

Kidding....

Real question though, I have just bought (yet to physically receive) a 2011 e90 (VIN WBAPM560X0NN35473). It's a Japanese car that has been imported to NZ, can I use this process to load Aus/NZ maps and will it work or is there something else I need to so to change region or something???

Cheers,
Karl

You typically must first change the vehicles region before tackling the maps.
