Maybe November, but more likely December.

Well Shawn, I almost feel guilty to ask you but would you mind PM-ing me the information too? I just purchased a 2011 550 and it's got the initial software version. I'm a little confused on the update, as a quick web search returns $245 upgrades store.bmwgpsmaps.com

New to BMW and found this forum while browsing for info on my new (used) 2011 5281. Would love to update nav but don't have a clue with BMW. My prior Lexus ride just needed new cd.

Would you mind sharing your knowledge?

I had my 535i and my wife's 328ci updated via Shawn's directions. Worked out very well.

You have to be somewhat computer and software literate, but once you figured it out the install is pretty easy.

I recently got the link to download the 2013, should I go for the 2014 instead? If that is the case would you PM the newer link?

DonM

Just guessing here but I don't think the update helps the way things are routed and the fact that it doesn't provide street names and that it doesn't properly calculate routes and that it doesn't know how to properly interpret traffic data and the fact that it doesn't know to avoid chronically high traffic areas (ie times square) and that it tells you 5 minutes ahead to prepare to turn but doesn't properly guide you through the turn when you arrive at it and it does not tell you speed limits without the heads up display (really? It must have the data as part of traffic and there is no reason it cannot be displayed on the monitor). It think it will just update the maps with new roads. My $100 TomTom does all these things on top of providing lifetime map updates for no extra cost at all and my iPhone has multiple free apps that all work better than this NAV. It is a travesty that they attempt to extort additional money to update such a poor product. They should really just focus on their Apps application and making it easy to display map apps from smart phones and give up on the NAV. This way you can use whatever you like.

This though is a new version to hate and rant about.

Why? Would this code still be good for the 2014 maps if bought late enough - in the past 3 months or so?

No. That was my point in that a 2013 FSC Code will not work for 2014.
