The '13 maps appear to have slightly more detail than the '11 but no better accuracy. On the way home from the supermarket I normally take the exit ramp off one 4 lane highway and then turn right at the end of the ramp. Today I was directed to take the off ramp but then instead of turning right, I was instructed to cross the highway, take the on ramp back to the same highway, go about a quarter mile, do a u-turn, take the off ramp and then turn left. I didn't follow its instructions. At least the roads are more up to date even if the software is still misleading.

Sure glad I didn't pay $400.

Shawn could you kindly send me the info on where to get the 2013 NAV maps and the FSC code. I use the USB access to charge my phone and/or iPod. Just wondering if one can use the on board memory, instead, to store the map information.

Many thanks,

Richard

I am not sure what you mean. The Map's are installed from the Glovebox USB Port to the CIC Hard Drive, where they then run from.

I have the newest version of the maps for EU, but all I can tell you about the maps for Poland is that they suck, unfortunately. Some BMW buddies still consider my country sort of a wild east

Yes - it's true that we have plenty of roads (including motorways) under construction, but the A2 motorway (Berlin - Warsaw) has been open for the Euro 2012 football games, and yet it's still not present on the BMW's maps. Same for some important parts of the A1 motorway, etc.

It's really annoying (and pathetic) that I'd need my smartphone navigation active all the time, having paid for the BMW Professional Navigation System...

Hello Shawn, others,

I have formatted my 32GB USB drive, and it says there is 29.9GB available. I can't get the file onto the drive because it says there is not enough room.

Am I doing something wrong, or do I just need to go out and get a bigger USB?

Thanks!

Did you not follow the instructions, this in particular?

3) Open .img file with 7-Zip
4) Extract the 1 file and 1 folder to the root of your 32 GB Fat32 Formatted USB Drive.

If you did, the 32 gb .img file extracted to the one file and folder would only total around 16.5 gb.
