Talking Newbie issues

Hi!

I'm new to this forum so please excuse me if I ask already answered questions...

I own a 2011 bmw 635d.
I realize (after reading a lot of threads) that I can download a torrent file with the maps update and then I need a code to activate the maps.
Could you please be so kind as to tell me which map I should download? (I live in Portugal so I suppose that it has to be an Europe map, but there are many... motion, move, premium...???)
Is there any tutorial after I get the proper file?

A second problem is related to my iPhone 4 contact list. I can't get all my contacts listed.
The local dealer told me that the car has a limit of 500 contacts (I have 687). Is this true?

The final issue has to do with gracenote recognition of the music CD's data. A lot of new and original CD's are not recognized so I don't get the info on singer/song/album... Does this happen to you?

Thanks a lot,
Pedro

Hi Pedro, congrats on the new car. You should re-post over here in the F12/F13 forum where guys with your model hang out.

Down here in the DIY section there is very little traffic. I have an E64 so I don't know the answer to your questions.
