Not sure what a 2013 325 is, but perhaps such a unique car has a uniquely bad nav system. Also, have you ever tried to figure out a Subaru's? On the other hand, I think the nav system in my 2014...

Nope. My 2014 car was built in March 2014; yours obviously months earlier. Looks like this is just an example of "continuous improvement" BMW applies to its cars over time.

Looks like it is already here. My new 2014 328i Sports Wagon was delivered with TPM showing psi (see photo I took today). No special coding nor advanced monitoring feature required.
