Speed limit info on a 2014 vs 2015

So I have a 2014 535 that I got in October of 2013. From what I've noticed is, the speed limit info is only displayed after passing an actual speed limit sign. So when I first turn onto a road I have a (--) instead the speed limit. Once I pass a speed limit sign, then the speed is displayed in the car. Now my wife just got a new 2015 X5D. Her speed limit info always has a number displayed even in places where mine doesn't. In her car, when you first turn onto a road the speed limit is displayed and updated and I haven't even seen or passed a posted sign yet. So I'm guessing her X5 is displaying the speed based off of GPS in the NAV. So my question is, is there a NAV update that will allow my car to do this? To the 2015 5 series owners, is yours working from the NAV or Camera or both? Where I live there's not a lot of signs posted so a lot of the time the info displayed is (--)

My Car is Nov 13 build...its same as your wife's X5D. I suspect it's to do with Map update. Mine came with 2013-2, and I just upgraded it to 2015-1.

Great! Thanks for the info. Did you do the update at BMW or did you download the maps and buy the $50 FSC code?

Interesting...maybe my car was the same as yours until I got the map updates and then it changed. I'm not 100% sure which is true, but what I know is that when I get out of my house and onto the street it is already showing the speed limit and when I get onto the highway it again is showing correct speed limit for the highway.

One more thing. Newer maps have a slightly different color scheme for highways and I definitely notice new routes/places in it. For $50, I'd say go for it.

As to where & whom, there was a 2015 Maps Update thread in this forum, a member there was helping people out. I'd start from there...

Yep, already downloaded and installed. This did fix my speed limit info problem. No more -- I actually have real time turn by turn speed limit info.
