You may also want to refer to the recent Japan to UK iDrive/Navigation map conversion help thread: https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1813594

Even though it relates to UK, it may also be relevant to NZ.

Cheers,
I'm getting stuck downloading the maps, I fall over at 26.4%, guessing that there aren't any seeders for the file???

Is there anywhere else I can get it? Or maybe a different Torrent?

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.
Guys if you need help to do the 1b file from the glovebox usb. I've made a video. It's on private the link but if it helps please subscribe.

Also I'm just getting the hang of coding and flashing modules if you want me to make a vid pm me. Thanks

Try downloading the 2020 Aus/NZ PREMIUM maps from the Aussie thread below (post #93):
https://www.e90post.com/forums/showt...7#post25816567

These are CIC PREMIUM maps for Professional nav. I don't know where to get MOTION maps (Business nav) from.

It may take a while to ZIP the file (20-30 mins) before the download starts. If you have problems with the download, post on that thread.

Awesome thanks, I have professional nav so fingers crossed. Downloading (well waiting to start DL) now.

When I generate an FSC (in the FSC Generator tool) I assume its the map version I am GOING to that I select rather than the maps version I am coming from? for example when generating the code I would select 2020 Aus/NZ PREMIUM in this case?

Yep, select the 2020 map.
Make sure you also Tick the Lifetime box. As it's a Lifetime code, it should then work for all future maps, including 2021 (if/when released).

Sweet, I've downloaded to an USB but it isn't recognised by my CIC. Nav doesn't have that tick at the bottom left, just an empty circle, so I am trying to write them to a DVD now and I'll give that a whirl.

I have an MMI box coming anyway so failing that I will still have maps available through the MMI/Androud Auto

LOL Scratch that, the maps are ever so slightly too big for a DVD.... I'll just wait for the MMI box
