Buy the 49.99 DVD...its a copy of the 199.99 DVD


And to be accurate, you are just inserting the DVD with the updated DATA...the "program" doesnt change, you just want the same system to display updated data (roads, stores, etc)

Now, there may be updates to your navigation system operation that can be done, but if it doesnt bother you, just get the new data.

OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"

OEM is NOT WHAT YOU BUY AT THE DEALER.
