New Pro Nav Does Not Show 3D Terrain?

Hi all.

Newbie here!

Currently test driving a brand new 420d gran coupe with pro nav and I noticed that the 3D images of the hills and mountains has gone flat! I have turned on 3D perspective view and 3D buildings are displayed in 3D but the hills and mountains are not

My wife's 2010 3 series with pro nav shows the hills and mountains up treat in 3D so I had a word with the dealer today to see if was missing something. He said that BMW have dumbed down the 3D for hills on the latest pro nav due to a reduced number of satellites to pick up the signal from?!!?

Big step back if they have!

Can anyone else confirm this or had this same issue with pro nav on new cars?

The GPS/GLONASS satellite fleets are stable. HERE.com writes the software and database. Dealer as in owner, senior manager or flunky, 'cause that was a lie.
Post hoc ergo propter hoc is a weak logic.
