The Nav Map software, sold by BMW without an FSC Code, is essentially free. BMW sold the DVD media version last year for only $11 and this year they sell the USB media version for only $42. All you are paying for is the cost of the media itself, i.e. the cost of three DVD Roms or the cost of one 32 GB thumb drive. What they actually sell for profit is the FSC Code, i.e. software license. So, what is out there available for download without an FSC Code in Digital media format from file hosting sites, FTP sites, or as a Torrent costs nothing as it has no actual media related costs. After downloading though, if you want to obtain an FSC Code and use the software, you can choose to buy a legitimate FSC Code from your Dealer, or buy one from "The FSC Code Man".
