Unfortunately BMW doesn't release the changes. We have had numerous customers tell us the new updates have added roads near them. Usually in new housing development areas. We have also had people report one-way road changes.

Excellent service!

I purchased the USB version. It arrived, it worked the first time no issues. I did have some questions before it came (including about the delivery which the USPS delayed) and they were answered promptly, even on the weekend. Excellent service and prompt helpful support.

I am somewhat amazed that people still use in-built navigation system... I mean I have it too, but mostly as backup... I switched to Waze couple of years ago, and it is so much better! I would never drop any more $ on navi system updates.

We use the BMW navigation all the time. We like the traffic re-routing and seeing our destination time. If my wife is driving I will often have Google Maps running in silent mode as a backup if it is someplace we are not familiar with.

I agree 80%. I love Waze, I use it every day, but I also drive in areas where there is either no cell coverage, or where the Waze metadata actually sucks. Sometimes there is no substitute for real GPS and metadata that's been collected and updated for many years.

Worked Great

I just updated my 2014 X3 to the 2017-1 maps. Shipping of the USB was fast. Took about 40 minutes. I had the original 2013-1 maps in my car. Huge improvement in data.

Highly Recommended.

I purchased the download option, and the whole process went very smoothly. The file downloads are large, so I recommend letting the downloads run during sleeping hours.

2017-1 NEXT and 2017-1 PREMIUM Map Updates are here![/SIZE][/B]

The newest iteration of BMW maps have been released and are available through Bimmer America LLC. [/URL]

I ordered the 2017-1 Premium USB version update for my wife's 2012 X3 35. Shipped very quickly. Installed quickly.

Unfortunately the updates still did not have my street (built 2008) nor my house (built 2013), which is the main reason I was updating from the 2015 version (previous update). After informing Tyler of the issue, he researched it with BMW. Turns out BMW has different map updates for different navigation models. The "NEXT" model has my street (and home) and more detailed maps of my area, whereas the Premium model which I have, does not.

Since the Premium version didn't meet my needs, Tyler offered a very agreeable resolution, even though it was a BMW issue. He was very professional about it.

If you're going to purchase an update, I highly recommend Tyler (this site).

I'm assuming that the map updates from Bimmer America also include updated POI's. Is this correct? Tks.

Hi, just got my 2011 X3 and wanted to get the latest Nav update. Is there a way to see what version (update) my car has. Will you ship USB stick to Canada?

Your X3 has the Premium version. Unfortunately, we do not currently ship map updates to Canada but we sent the download versions worldwide.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Nav Update Request

Thank's for your reply. After I wrote, I checked your forum comments and will look for my latest up-date date. I am not a real computer guy, will "normal" users be able to update using your on line connection or should I get one of my kids (30+) to help. What does the premium version include that is better than the non-premium nav?

I have a 2013 X3 and 2012 Z4, both with nav. If I purchase and download a copy will I be able to update both vehicles, or is it vin specific?

The release code is VIN specific so you would need to purchase updates for both.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
