E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Newbie question--Navigation updates for 2012 128

I tried searching the forum on this and didn't see anything, so...

I have a 2012 128 Convertible. I want to update my maps. According to the manual a DVD and code are purchasable from the dealer and it encourages me to do the update as I drive about so as not to drain the battery.

When I talked to the parts department at my local dealer, I was told that the manual was wrong and that it had to be done in service to the tune of about $375, which strikes me as outrageous. It also strikes me as outrageous if the manual is in fact wrong (or if the parts person didn't know what they were talking about or trying to rook me).

What is the truth of the matter?

Do you have a DVD or hard drive on the idrive? If you have a hard drive then you must have the dealer to perform the upgrade on a newer version.

I believe it is a hard drive, but am not certain. Is there an easy way to tell?

What the hell is this?!

Anyway, you have a HD based NAV. CCC to CIC switch happened in '09, maybe late '08.

Easiest way to verify is CCC (DVD based nav) has 2 CD/DVD slots. CIC (HD based nav) has one DVD/CD slot.
