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.
I haven't followed-up with my local BMW parts Tech, but I'd posted the response I'd received when I too offered to pay the $ to get map updates on my 2010 X5d last December in this thread:

So, at the time, I was left with the impression that there was definitely a reason they couldn't order me the map updates, but I certainly didn't hear them say it was due to any sort of TSB.

However, in hindsight, I'd guess that it's looking more like there really could be an issue that needs to be resolved.

I'll have to give my parts guy or Service Advisor a call to get an update.
