Mein Auto: '09 535i GT
The GT has harddisk-based navigation (CIC). All updates must be made via your BMW Dealer.
In Europe the total costs are 190 Euro (about 240 US$). The DVDs are cheap (20 Euro), but
the activiation code (made by BMW in Munich) is very expensive.

I got my activiation code for less than 60 Euro with a little help from an IT specialist in east
europe I wasn't sure if it works and if the "dealer" is trustworthy. But I gave it a try - and
it worked fine for me. He provided me the actual maps and sent me the code.

I copied the three iso-Files to an usb-stick und updated my system within 2 hours.

Please send me a note if you want more information...

(hope I didn't violate any board rules here)
greetings, Stefan

535i GT
