Mein Auto: '14 X3 35i / '03 F350
2014 X3 35i with Navigtaion (609) option, built 16 Apr 2013. My Nav system version reads:

North America BMW Group
112 113.2.121
Road Map North America Next 2013


This nav system places my address about 1 mile down the road from where it really is. I am in rural Colorado. Other nav systems (google, bing, etc.) will also make a mistake - some the same mistake, some make a different mistake. Every revision of those systems causes the mistake to change.

I have put in some other addresses in cities and the X3 nav system places them correctly. Since I have only had the car a few days, I have not done extensive tests.

I think routes will get re-calculated based on perceived traffic conditions and depending on how you have set the settings.

As I said - I am still learning this system's logic
