Man I just updated to 2015-2 on my NBT navigation. Wish I knew that this was coming out. I wouldve waited. Are the differences substantial?

Can't say what is noticeably different. Never a change Log for new Map.

The Maps are not interchangeable. If you have CCC, then you must run PROFESSIONAL Map. Each newer version is somewhat better than the previous version, and in the order listed above.

From Nav Screen, hit Option Button on Controller, and then Scroll down to Display Navigation Version.

Might be interested as well depending on the price, just took delivery of a 2015 435i GC, which has the 2015-2 map. Dealer wasn't very responsive when I asked for a free update...

Please PM.

Is there any way to check which roads are included in the 2016-1 update? I've got a few Garmins with lifetime updates, and as an example a new I15 expressway direct access ramp in San Diego, which was completed summer 2014, still hasn't shown up on their most recent update

HERE makes the maps (both for Garmin and BMW), and that onramp has been visible on their website at least since January. Makes you wonder why those maps are so far behind compared to the map data source.

Of course if someone with the 2016 maps is willing to check if the I15 Miramar College DAR is there or not I'd much appreciate that

I have never thought it worthwhile to update the mapping because of the cost. When we drive to places like NY or Boston where traffic conditions change rapidly and where there are many routing alternatives, have always found Google Maps to be much better at routing. We keep the navigator on but either my wife or I monitor google maps on our phones. It may be that the navigation has improved in later models; I can only speak for the systems in a 2013 3 series & 2014 X1. I also understand that the 2016 3 series will offer free upgrades for 3 years. Following is quote from press release.
"The navigation maps are automatically updated free of charge for a period of three years via the embedded SIM cards"

This is true for any new car with NBT2 Evo Head Unit.

I just found out that my car accepted the 2016-1 maps without the need for an FSC Must be because it was built just before those maps came out.

However that onramp isn't on there either. In 2016-2 hopefully.

NBT2 Evo is the Next Generation Head Unit for 609 Professional Navigation, which replaces NBT, which replaced CIC, which replaced CCC.

If you want to see NBT2 Evo Head Unit, go look at an F23 with 609 Professional Navigation.
