Talking 2015 Navigation Map Updates

A handful of 2015 Navigation Map Updates have been released including Road Map North America NEXT 2015-1 for car's with Option 609 Professional Navigation System and the latest NBT Head Unit:

For Map update, you will need to obtain the correct Map version for your Head Unit Type / Geographic Region, and a Map Update FSC Code for Installation.

If you have 609 Professional Navigation System, and are unsure of which Head Unit type / Map version (PROFESSIONAL, PREMIUM, or NEXT) you need, see here:

If you have 606 Business Navigation System, you will need either MOVE, MOTION, or ROUTE Map version.

If you have questions on how to update, send me a PM.

I have no idea.

2014-2 Europe NEXT was just released, so maybe 2014-2 PREMIUM will follow soon.

2015 map release

I'm trying to assess if an update from my '13 maps (I can go look at the actual version on my car if that's necessary) is worth the effort and cost especially if the actual data was collected many many months ago before it went to production.

Is there a website that provides (any) detail about the changes, additions, corrections made between this version and the earlier (2013) maps?

Unfortunately BMW never posts a Change Log or Release Notes for any new map release, so one is always left wondering what specifically was added. We just know more streets and POI's are added, and improvements to the routing algorithm are made.

Thanks Shawn - You are the MAP

I seem to recall the previous company that did mapping did post generalized map updates but my search didn't prove helpful. I have reported map errors from time to time (esp to Google) but I had a 2014 loaner a few weeks ago and that car still reported that the street my son lives on is a thru street when in fact it dead ends at a utility company easement and picks up again on the other side of the high tension power lines. Been that way for 10 years!!

Google fixed their maps 3 years ago - BMW not so far!

SO when he tells people to gps/map directions to his house he always reminds them use Google / smartphone maps esp if they are driving a BMW/Mini etc.

It's a nit but when companies can't get the little stuff right I'm skeptical of how they treat the rest of the data - the devil is in the details!

Shawn - I saw on another thread that one of the changes for MY2015 was improved realtime traffic routing. Do you know if this is a hardware-based change or do we get this with the 2015 map update? The blurb I saw:

"When equipped with Navigation, an advanced version of Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI; option 6AM) provides a new function. Additional route suggestions are offered, highlighted by a "globe" icon in the NAV screen. This is especially helpful when traveling in heavy traffic situations such as rush hour."

Thanks

I don't know for sure. 6AM ARTTI has been around since NBT introduction in 0712, as a replacement for 6UH RTTI. If they made further enhancements to 6AM, I would expect that it is a function of the NBT Firmware, and not the map itself.

I updated to the 2015-1 map. Is there something I can test with the routes to see if the my2015 is included with the update?

If you want the latest Roads, POI's, and routing Algorithm, yes. Otherwise, no.

It's not free, but damn cheap.
