Well, I was thinking maybe they are too old, and first going to 2012 and then to 2013 may work, but it is stretch, and would cost two FSC Codes.

Are you able to copy music to the CIC hard drive via the Glovebox USB Port?

Sorry, but your E65 will have the older CCC iDrive system. The CIC was not introduced in the 7 Series until September 2008 with the then new F01 chassis.

If you have 609 Navigation, you need a DVD in the dedicated DVD drive, with South Africa Map region.

I was think the same thing. But thought it was risky. I was going to do the 2012 maps if the 2013 was a lost cause. I mean it would get me a way newer version of maps.

I am able to copy music to the hard drive. It is a 12 gig partition for music.

I found a nice person to let me use their USB maps they used to upgrade theirs.

Thanks Shawn!

I assume you mean the other Sean, so USB worked...or you haven't tried it yet?

It's confusing...I know

You're looking to make contact with Shawn, unless your name is Sean also

FYI went great on my 2011 535i (build date 7/2010). Just stuck it in the glovebox USB and it started within 10-15 seconds.

Total time was about 45-50 minutes in the car (note: "copying to car" is the whole thing; I was afraid it would also have to expand once copied).

Other notes:
1. I was afraid to shut off the car, so I kept it running in my garage. I did however shut it off and back on during the load, but it continued.
>> I would not recommend walking away from the car with only ignition on/car not running since it might automatically shut down after 15-20 minutes (this was a software update to the car after mine and other early/mid builds burned out batteries when dealers/valets accidentally left cars on).
2. When I opened the door during the "enter code" screen, it automatically cancelled. So I had to start over before it started.
3. AFTER the load, my screen looked a lot more blurry (the grey/traffic screen got a lot better, btw). Turns out that "perspective during 3D" got more realistic, which = blurry). If you don't like it, turn off perspective during 3D.
4. It all seemed a lot slower at first, but got faster after turning car off/locking and then returning.
5. Initially the navigation version screen was completely blank, but similar to #4, it fixed itself.
6. I used a $15 Sandisk Cruzer Glide 32GB USB stick.
