Mine is a vert also. I have tried standing still with the engine off and still get the "I couldn't understand you" response. I would really like to hear from anyone that has had success doing this.

Dealer vs DVD NAV update for 2010 650i

I just purchased a pre-owned 650i and I want to update the NAV maps. How do I know if I can just buy the DVDs for about $200 or if I have to have it done by the dealer and pay about $500?
