Some positive feedback too - just successfully updated to 2015-MOVE maps in a 2011 520d thanks to the advice and direction obtained here, from Shawn.

Had initial difficulty figuring out what/where a 'Root' drive was and which files to extract (i.e. don't extract part 2!), but received good assistance from Shawn's contact (and Google searches) - it was simple, the problem was my inexperience. Needed a massive USB drive too - I got a 32GB but a 16GB would have done the job - it'll be handy for the next updates.

Thanks again for all the input gained here.

Does the newest update affect how you view traffic when zoomed out to, say 1 mile or 5 miles? At that level, I only want to see traffic on freeways and major roads, not all the minor streest.

I have not noticed any difference with my CIC and 6UH Traffic functions using 2015-1 Map.

Shawn,

After the update, I gained the nearby George Washington Bridge in 3D and a few buildings in our neighborhood, but lost 3D representation of an entire town just south of ours. I didn't try NYC yet, but have a feeling that there will not be 3D buildings there as well. I know my equipment works fine since it shows the aforementioned in 3D. I imagine that the programmers intended it this way. Have you heard about it before? Is this normal?

I have not heard of anything similar. I'd like to think they just keep adding 3D renderings, without removing any, but I also know they keep the total PREMIUM map size to under 24 Gb, so maybe they are making Trade-offs in the process.

I hope you are correct. But this is a pretty large neighborhood (Edgewater NJ) just across the river from NYC. Of course, I am not going to get lost there now, but I hate to lose functionality. Hope NYC 3D is still there.

Thank you for quick response.

Hi Shawn,
Wow, you are really a great resource. Could you please help me with an update to my nav system on a 2011 328i xdrive. Not sure if there were different systems put out in 2011, but mine was bought late in the model year - Aug 2011.
Thanks,
Dennis

Hi Shawn,

Just a quick followup on the 3D in the NavData update. I think you are correct about the programmers saving space selectively on the 3D renderings. While I lost the 3D in a nearby suburban neighborhood after the update, the renderings in NYC are quite impressive. There are even many bridges and monuments that stand where they should, and many buildings have photographic imaging superimposed on their exteriors.

Thanks again!
