European maps no longer preloaded on ED delivery cars ?

So it seems folks who just took delivery of their F10 M5s didn't have the European maps
preloaded on their NAV systems but got a USB stick instead. This also meant the USB port
was occupied and one couldn't use their iPods for music streaming. Only blootooth
streaming works.

I was just wondering if this is really the case or just a "fluke" of the first batch of M5s delivered ??

Thx,
Jan

Interesting information... I did read in my ED package that arrived yesterday that the maps would be on a USB stick....

But, if I have my cradle, I should be fine without having to stream via BT

Thx so far !
That's all fine but it's still not great for those with recent/current Android phones and a large music library (ie no snap in adapter available) which doesn't fit onto the phone
Hopefully the music import feature will work and I can upload music from my iPod/hard disk...

So true... especially since I will probably have the iPhone 5 by then... ugh... so much for the cradle!

Do the M5's have the updated nav system? I took delivery of my 335 on Sept. 7 and it does have the Euro maps loaded. I was discussing the new nav system with the BMW rep and he said an advantage of having the old system is that the maps were preloaded instead of on a USB stick, so I would still be able to connect my phone through USB.

Per a VERY reliable source in Welt, I was told that MY13 7 Series and 3 Series Wagon come with an updated systems... all others are the same as before.

The MY13 M5s do have the updated system too (updated processor/HDD/video etc) and I hope
it was just the first batch which didn't have the maps loaded.
I've sent mail to the BMW ED folks but haven't heard anything back yet

I hope you do get it! I was hoping for my 2013 Z4 35is to get it, but after contacting one of the top managers at Welt, he gave me the bad news and included that extra tidbit of info. (crossing fingers for you)

Incidentally, this is the same guy I contacted as soon as I saw the Zagato... I told him I want to cancel my order and that car instead... he informed me that it was NOT going to be produced - at least not for now.

Man, that figures, was kind of hoping my MY13 M3 would get the upgrade. Guess the last year gets no love...

Picked up my 550 two days ago; it is indeed using a USB stick for Euro maps (setup at delivery). I never used the 'old' system, but this one seems very quick and (so far) has provided excellent directions.

Gotta say, the Welt and delivery experience was incredible!!

When we took delivery Sept. 13th, 2012, Guido our delivery guy went and got the USB stick and said he needed to download the maps into the Nav system and that the stick with the nice BMW logo would be our souvenir. Then he started up the Nav and noticed that the European maps were already loaded. So then I asked, do I get to keep the stick? He went and asked and the answer was no since they would need it for another delivery. Pretty cheezy response as he had already grabbed it for our car. It wasn't worth getting worked up over.

Another data point.... ED on 8/31 of a '13 535 GT, used the USB-based European maps. Only one USB port on the car now, so the maps got the port. Maps were more important than "driving blind" while waiting for my music library to load from it's USB stick...

Oh well, not a material issue in the scheme of things...

Ditto on what SimiClyde said. Question...did anyone try touching the nav screen to move the map? My daughter and I kept trying, but it's not an iPad, damn it.

Sept 4 delivery of E92, and it had euro maps installed. I also got a flash drive with BMW logo that had the delivery picture on it. Did those complaining about not getting the to keep the flash drive not get one with their delivery pic?

Yes the reason some don't get Europe maps pre-loaded is that BMW can't pre-load maps (Euro) on cars equipped with the new / updated navigation system 609 (F10 5 Series Sedan/Gran Turismo, 7 Series Sedan and ActiveHybrid 3) .
All other cars still have the "old" navigation system and will/should have the euro maps pre-loaded.
Also the cars fitted with the new nav system will only have one USB connector in the middle console, the one
in the glovebox has been removed.
One thing worthwhile trying might be to see if a Y cable/spliter might work for the USB stick and iPod (unlikely).
I decided to buy the media adapter for my iPod Touch so I have music and maps (also note the Media snap-in adapter is the only one working with the new nav system, the "music" snap-in adapter does not work, the media adapter will require some light tweaking in order to make the iPod Touch work (it's smaller/shorter than the iPhone) .

With you filling in the blanks. Guido our delivery guy assumed that their flagship 6 Series Gran Coupe would have the updated nav and therefore would need the USB stick. Would be a good assumption except reading this thread, it would be incorrect. Thanks for clearing up the mystery. We'll have to wait until our next go around. The old nav seemed fine but it does frustrate me, being a tech geek and all.
