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,
Vladimir
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.

PS If you were local we could meet up and try it...you'll know in 30 seconds (as the the need for the FSC or not)
