Any help would be greatly appreciated
You have the older HIFI system, not CIC.

The script will not work with your car.

This car has CIC. I'm sure sure what you're talking about. CIC replaced CCC in 2009 and was available on 3 series from 09-11 when they changed to the NBT system.

It's the same system I have in my 1 series. HIFI has nothing to do with navigation.
Yes you have S609.

I was looking at the results of a different VIN check.

Make sure the drive is 32gb or less in size. I use smaller 8gb drives.

Plug it in after your CIC is fully powered up with GPS fixes and wait 5 minutes.

If you can perform music transfers to the HDD it should work.

Hi all,

Not sure if the F25 X3 is supported on this forum, but couldn't find a similar post on the model specific site.

I'm unable to pull out the 1B file from my car as it does not have a glove box USB port. Only one I can find is in the middle console and managed to update the system firmware through that one.

My question is, how do I create the required FSC code without the 1B file?

My VIN is WBAWZ510900L01164

You have NBT Head unit, which has DE file instead of 1B File. You need to pull the DE File with E-Sys.

Ok, so I need some kind of cable and a software. Better to contact a local BMW coder in this case

Thanks a million for your quick reply.

Ok, downloaded the Road Map Next 2020-1 East for my area and noticed that it only shows highways for some reason. Update went well in 40min without issues but does it require me to turn off the car or is it somehow indexing the new map data for a while? Or is it just the wrong map data? Both West and East should have the complete road data for Finland.

Thanks in advance

It can take a good while to process the data after the upload.

Just let it finish.

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.
Do you have link for South America version? Or, where can I find it? ty

Great write-up!

Question, I have a 2016 X5M that does not have a glove box USB, only a center console USB. Do you think this will work for my car?

The MAPS.zip file in the OP hasn't been updated since 2018, and is therefore out-of-date.

You're better off doing a search for more recent maps (2019 or 2020) on this forum. Higher version number is more recent (yyyy-2 is newer than yyyy-1).

Unfortunately, the script doesn't work with Next (iDrive Professional NBT aka "Next Big Thing") which replaced CIC around 2012:

Ah, that makes sense. I tried several USB drives and bought 2 from Best Buy, no luck there.

So should I just pay one of the folks on eBay for my FSC code? Thoughts?

I do have the 2020 update maps on a USB drive that is recognized by my iDrive when plugged into the center console, I just need the FSC code at this point.

Or can I buy an ODB2 to Ethernet cable and use E-Sys?

Hi, I have 525xD (12/2015) and I need to update my maps. As far as I understood, there is no chance to get the file to USB, because there is no USB in the glove box. I downloaded maps from this post, but I assume there are not for NBT.

Can you guide me what should I do. Is there a way to use that OBD 2 Eth cable and get Europa maps somewhere to update my NAVI? Thank you so much for any help.

I already ordered the cable (OBDII-Eth), so i need to wait to test if I will be able to grab that DE file. But TBH, i haven´t found any NBT maps Europe newer than 2018.

For anyone looking for up to date maps just use this tool on this forum and go through the steps then when it comes to downloading maps just download them from gpspower - https://www.gpspower.net/bmw/358594-...020-1-a-9.html

Thank you so much guys. Will try that as soon as Cable arrives.

Btw. If I want the whole Europe, can I use EAST and WEST to update the system, or I just can use only one from those?

Hi guys. I would like to thank you for that advice.

First of all I struggled the most with the E-SYS, because I was unable to connect to the car at the first moment. Then I decided to try a different version and that worked ( i think 3.2.8 worked for me). Eth cable was working fine.

I was able to retrieve DE file from the car with the brilliant guide here, generating the code with the keygen was easy. I used some USB 2.0 Sandisk 32GB, and it was recognized immediately. And then I was able to update my my maps in approx 45 min.

Thank you.

I just wander, if I need to download the file everytime, or I can use the same one. Maybe it´s in some older post, but I was unable to find it.
