Mein Auto: X5 35D -
I've had my 2010 X35d for 2 years now with a hard disk navigation system that gives the wrong directions about 40% of the time. Each time I ask the dealer to fix it, they push it off on the map data and won't do anything.

This time 1/2012 I offered to pay the $400 to have it updated, but after having my car for 2 days, they showed me an internal BMW bulletin dated 12/2011 that said; not to do this update on E70's because it causes computer errors that cannot be fixed at this time. I find it hard to believe that could be true.

I've read the post, but has anyone gotten the dealer to or self performed the map update on a 2010 X35d with a hard disk nav system?

Side note: they gave me a 2011 535i for a loaner and the nav system had some nice improvements, like larger txt and automatic night colors on the map. These type of changes would be great if they were part of a system update.
