This applies only to US/Canada North America DVD Trunk-Loading Navigation Unit.

Disclaimer: Use this instruction at YOUR OWN RISK. I will not accept responsibility or liability for any damages to your car.

Here are a few improvements of the latest V32 firmware:

Reading dual layer DVDs
Loading voice files (male or female)
Fix: Navigation system is inoperative after arrival at destination
Fix: Incorrect address book
...


Step 1: Use the secret iDrive menu to determine what's your NAV version. Here's how:


Press the iDrive knob down for at least 10 seconds
Turn the knob 3 clicks clockwise
Turn the knob 3 clicks counterclockwise
Turn the knob 1 click clockwise
Turn the knob 1 click counterclockwise
Turn the knob 1 click clockwise
Press the knob down firmly and release
Select "MOST Devices".
Scroll down and select "Navigation".
Scroll down a few pages until "Software Version" is displayed.


If version is 8.4.4 hex, then your system is NAVI02 which already had the latest firmware. Nothing needs to be done. Skip the rest.

If version is 9.x.x hex, but not 9.8.2 hex, then your system is NAVI03. Proceed to the next step.

E65, E66 NAVI01 (CD-drive): later version is 7.3.2 (not applicable here)
E65, E66 NAVI02 (DVD-drive): latest version is 8.4.4 hex
E65, E66 NAVI03 (DVD-drive): latest version is 9.8.2 hex

Step 2: Download the latest firmware V32

https://www.rapidshare.com/files/67875757/v32_usa.bin
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/1460690572/v32_usa.cue
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/3919791712/v32_usa.toc

Note that V32 is the latest released firmware from BMW.
BMW engineers stopped producing upgrade for E65/E66 after 03/2008.
There are many other versions V32.1 or V32.2 floating around on the net.
They are customized firmware, not the genuine BMW released firmware.

Alternatively, you can buy this firmware CD from the dealer.
This is the product number: P/N 01 59 0 141 891 index "y"


Step 3: Burn firmware (cue or bin) to a CD (or DVD)

You will need a single blank CD-R 700MB, not CD-RW.
Specified write speed 48x or 52x is not really important.
Verbatim and Memorex are reliable brands.
Other brands such as Maxell, Imation, TDK, or Sony are just fine.

For Windows users, you can use Nero Burning or freeware such are ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com/).

For Mac users, you can user Burn (http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html).

Burn at the lowest speed 1x to 4x if possible.
Always verify the image to make sure the burn was good.

Step 4: Install the firmware

This is the official instructions from BMW SI B65 21 02:


Insert the key fob into Ready state. Do not start the car.
Enter the navigation menu.
Remove the road map DVD.
Insert the navigation operating software CD V32 into the navigation unit.
Select "Yes" with the controller to install the software.
The software will then load in two steps, taking approximately 10-15 minutes.
Do not touch the iDrive while the software is loading.
When the installation is finished, the CD will be ejected. The message "Installation Successful, Remove Software loading CD and press OK" will appear. At this point, select "OK" with the controller.
The navigation system will then "Reinitialize".
When prompted, insert the road map DVD.
Make sure the battery is sufficiently charged. DO NOT SWITCH OFF THE IGNITION DURING UPDATE PROGRESS, otherwise you'll kill your navi.

All files came from the same source. Technically you only need the cue and bin files.

This is not a map disc. If you don't have a map disc, your navigation won't work. This is firmware, which has to do with how the unit uses and interprets the data on the map disc.

If your navigation screen says to insert a map disc, that should be all you need. If someone retro-fitted a DVD unit and didn't configure it, then there's a lot more work to be done.

No, it will NOT work! This is for DVD navigation system only.

I recently purchased my 745Li and did not test the navigation during purchase. It does not appear to be working.

I figured I would pose this question to you sir, since you seem to be very knowledgeable.

I've located the correct CD through the dealership. When I insert it into the DVD navigation system in the trunk, and then attempt to use the navigation through iDrive, I receive a "No CD is inserted..."

The DVD navigation system is ON and I can hear the disc spinning in the drive. Where should I begin for troubleshooting? Would an update like this possibly help the problem if it's deemed an update is applicable?

Any thoughts or recomendations you might have are greatly appreciated.

thx,

c

Rear DVD Navigation System with proper DVD Disc. 2005 745li

Hi,

You should be using the 'High" DVD and not the 'Professional' I'm sure if you got it from the dealer then you have the right one.

The DVD/CD drives are a common failure, My NAVI01 died and I have since replaced it with a NAVI03.

You could try cleaning the lens, there is a fan in the NAV unit and it sucks loads of dust through the unit and alot gets deposited on the DVD/CD and lens itself, the disc in my NAVI01 had been in there 9 years! it was filthy! :yikes:

Worth a try, I would keep an eye out for a replacement on ebay, I waited ages and got my NAVI03 for $250 which was pretty good!

Question, I have a 2007 - 750Li with E66 NAVI03 that needs the v32 software update. I found a 2013 Eastern High version map on e-Bay. Will I need to update to v32 in order to use the new map DVD disc? And if so, in order to make the v32 software update Disc, do I simply download both files and burn both to the disc and just put it in the Navigation DVD drive? Finally, if you know, will I need some type of access code for the Map DVD disc from e-Bay or do I simply get the disk and use it? I know it is allot of information I'm asking but I really do appreciate it.

Follow the instructions to know whether you need firmware update or not. Though update is optional. No, you don't need access code.

Hi

I have 06 730i (E65) with software version 9.1.10 hex
I followed your instructions and looks OK until step 4 of the upgrade where the system recognize the CD as firmware upgrade. Then it very quickly show progress bar and cancel the process and display no nvai cd, I never get to the "yes" step at all! the DVD in the trunk keep working for 2 min or so then eject the CD. I checked the system again and nothing change and when I insert the MAP DVD it works as usual. what am I doing wrong?! (BTW, I repeated the process maybe 10 times with different copies from different sites and still the same result)

I followed your instructions and looks OK until step 4 of the upgrade where the system recognize the CD as firmware upgrade. Then it very quickly show progress bar and cancel the process and display no nvai cd, I never get to the "yes" step at all! the DVD in the trunk keep working for 2 min or so then eject the CD. I checked the system again and nothing change and when I insert the MAP DVD it works as usual. what am I doing wrong?! (BTW, I repeated the process maybe 10 times with different copies from different sites and still the same result)

I noticed your location is in KSA .... is that for Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?

The firmware and instruction provided is for E65/E66 in US and Canada only.

In deed I am in Saudi Arabia, but I don't think this matter at all. I downloaded the same version form many different locations and the instruction where almost the identical (the hidden menu and upgrade procedure). I made many CDs from these copies and tried them all and have the same result... I thought I could get some help from some enthusiasts...

I have a 2006 750Li, with Nav SW version 9.7.2, with a North America 2005-2 DVD.

I am interested in upgrading.

I followed the links in your original post and got error message that files were not found.

sorry guy you cannot, unless you go a full retrofit upgrade which includes: MMI, Navigation Unit and for good measures ASK unit from a post 2006 and on model/s.

So I tried to update my firmware/ software version for my CD navigation (NAVI01) from 7.2.8 to 7.3.2 and I was successful; however, it's now stuck at the following "software loading is in progress screen". I have tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting and still stuck at the same screen when I go to the navigation. All the rest of my idrive functions work fine. Suggestions?

Can anyone advise on the best source for updated map DVD's for east USA for a 2008 750Li? I didn't check the firmware version yet; just picked the car up today. But I did notice the nav. maps are more than limited and seem old/off. There were whole streets missing from a town nearby that aren't new streets, at least not in 30 yrs.

Do I have to get them (the DVD/s) from BMW for hundreds (or similar) or are they downloadable, etc? Any risk in taking the current DVD out of the navigation module in the trunk to check its version details? Any risk in downloading map files?

Any recommendation on tires for 750Li. I have at the back PZero 285/30/21. I'm trying to shy away from PZero because of the road noise.

I upgraded from a Navi01 CD based to a Navi03 DVD based and all works great! It was plug and play.

Glad to hear you had success, the MMI will give you al little more features. (not much just other program related).

Can someone post an update to the links for this firmware? The original ones no longer work. TIA.

Edit: I finally got around to doing this update last weekend and it worked like a charm. Thanks to OP.

Hi, This is Jake and I'm new to this forum and have a question regarding nav. update.
I have 04 745i and checked the software version and it says 8.3.E hex... is this nav02? if it is then do I need to upgrade the firmware before updating the map?
It just seems odd that everyone has 8.4.4. or 9.x.x mine says 8.3.E.
Thanks in advance!

This applies only to US/Canada North America DVD Trunk-Loading Navigation Unit.

Disclaimer: Use this instruction at YOUR OWN RISK. I will not accept responsibility or liability for any damages to your car.

Here are a few improvements of the latest V32 firmware:

Reading dual layer DVDs
Loading voice files (male or female)
Fix: Navigation system is inoperative after arrival at destination
Fix: Incorrect address book
...


Step 1: Use the secret iDrive menu to determine what's your NAV version. Here's how:


Press the iDrive knob down for at least 10 seconds
Turn the knob 3 clicks clockwise
Turn the knob 3 clicks counterclockwise
Turn the knob 1 click clockwise
Turn the knob 1 click counterclockwise
Turn the knob 1 click clockwise
Press the knob down firmly and release
Select "MOST Devices".
Scroll down and select "Navigation".
Scroll down a few pages until "Software Version" is displayed.


If version is 8.4.4 hex, then your system is NAVI02 which already had the latest firmware. Nothing needs to be done. Skip the rest.

If version is 9.x.x hex, but not 9.8.2 hex, then your system is NAVI03. Proceed to the next step.

E65, E66 NAVI01 (CD-drive): later version is 7.3.2 (not applicable here)
E65, E66 NAVI02 (DVD-drive): latest version is 8.4.4 hex
E65, E66 NAVI03 (DVD-drive): latest version is 9.8.2 hex

Step 2: Download the latest firmware V32

https://www.rapidshare.com/files/67875757/v32_usa.bin
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/1460690572/v32_usa.cue
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/3919791712/v32_usa.toc

Note that V32 is the latest released firmware from BMW.
BMW engineers stopped producing upgrade for E65/E66 after 03/2008.
There are many other versions V32.1 or V32.2 floating around on the net.
They are customized firmware, not the genuine BMW released firmware.

Alternatively, you can buy this firmware CD from the dealer.
This is the product number: P/N 01 59 0 141 891 index "y"


Step 3: Burn firmware (cue or bin) to a CD (or DVD)

You will need a single blank CD-R 700MB, not CD-RW.
Specified write speed 48x or 52x is not really important.
Verbatim and Memorex are reliable brands.
Other brands such as Maxell, Imation, TDK, or Sony are just fine.

For Windows users, you can use Nero Burning or freeware such are ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com/).

For Mac users, you can user Burn (http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html).

Burn at the lowest speed 1x to 4x if possible.
Always verify the image to make sure the burn was good.

Step 4: Install the firmware

This is the official instructions from BMW SI B65 21 02:


Insert the key fob into Ready state. Do not start the car.
Enter the navigation menu.
Remove the road map DVD.
Insert the navigation operating software CD V32 into the navigation unit.
Select "Yes" with the controller to install the software.
The software will then load in two steps, taking approximately 10-15 minutes.
Do not touch the iDrive while the software is loading.
When the installation is finished, the CD will be ejected. The message "Installation Successful, Remove Software loading CD and press OK" will appear. At this point, select "OK" with the controller.
The navigation system will then "Reinitialize".
When prompted, insert the road map DVD.
Make sure the battery is sufficiently charged. DO NOT SWITCH OFF THE IGNITION DURING UPDATE PROGRESS, otherwise you'll kill your navi.


Did every thing in the list until I get to the [ Press the knob down firmly and release ] when I do that I get a blank / black screen . No info at all from that point . I do have the trunk DVD nav. sys on the 04 745li . Any help on this matter ??
