We picked up our 2013 535i on 13 Sep. We have the updated nav which required loading via the USB stick.

2013 7 w/ USB for MAPS on ED

Picked up our 7 last week and yes BMW provided a USB stick (BMW logo) for the maps in Europe. It occupied the USB slot in the middle console. The USB drive is over 30GB but the maps take about 23GB of space. And yes, it is only for Europe. The stick becomes a nice 30GB drive for you to use in the States.

It's only pre-loaded on the old Nav systems. On the new Nav systems, it's accessed via the USB stick. Stateside, the USB stick becomes a souvenir.

Any update on this issue of preloaded maps v. UBS. If I understand correctly, my MY13 335 (expected May prodection / April delivery) will have the old nav (or is there any chance it will get the upgrade by then), and if if does I will have pre-loaded maps. I guess either way I am glad that the old school method of renting map disk from beewang is no longer necessary

Either way it's not a problem.
If someone has the new NAV system the maps will be pre-loaded on a USB stick and this stick will occupy the USB slot under the center console armrest .
Only drawback is that one can't use the USB port for audio/iPod whilst the maps are loaded (the new NAV system no longer has an additional USB port in the glove box)
So you have to use the media/phone snap-in adapter or Bluetooth streaming if you want to play your own music/playlists

Mein Auto: Z4 35i
I took delivery of my Z4 on Oct 9. Drove through Europe with no issues. Got my car back in the states and have been driving with no issues here either.

I did not get a USB drive for maps and I did not have to do anything special - just picked up my car and that's it.

Yes . Because the Z4 is still using the "old" NAV system/
Maps loaded via the USB stick are ONLY needed if your car has the new NAV system
