Are these DVDs good for updating the HD based system?
I have a 2012 X5 which I took posession on October 31st 2011 - my Nav system version is 112093.2.27 - can I just use the DVDs (Part 0199003728) for 2012 to update what I have?
Actually, I am also trying to figure out why my total unit does not give me the same functuionality as BMW shows on their "Owner manual Movies" - for instance, I do not have the on-line interactive manual option.
I plan to go to the dealer to ask why, but their service advisors are incompetent (probably by design) - when I asked them for software update steps - they had no information that the updated software existed and how to do it. I just downloaded the software and installed it myself (took some experimentation)
Best regards,
Get the discs, pop #1 in...I am willing to bet your car already has the FSC code. You may get the 2012 map for $10.

Report back


PS If you were local we could meet up and try'll know in 30 seconds (as the the need for the FSC or not)
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
