2006 Navigation update

Bought my 2006 650i cab a couple of months ago. Nav system cd is missing. Nav system does not work. Assuming the nav system is not defective, do I just buy a disc off of Ebay, put it in the dvd player and load it up, or is it more complicated than that? If I buy a disc off of Ebay do I have to get one for a 2006 or can I get one for a more current year? I have searched for a thread on this but have not found one for my particular model and year.

Depending on the current firmware in your car and the disc you get the system may need to update itself. All needed files should no on the disc. If you put in the disc you may see a message that tells you it is updating. After a few minutes, it will say turn off the car for 15 minutes (not positive about the time). Follow the instructions and turn off the car, and walk away for a few Minutes so it goes to sleep. When you restart it, you should be good to go.

Careful with eBay. The one I got with latest maps did not work. Nav screen goes blank. Works fine with original DVD.

Got the 2013 CD from this guy on ebay. Put it in, screen went blank, said updating, and turn off car. simple instructions. After that worked fine for 10 minutes and then screen shut down again and restarted. Thought it might be an issue but it never happened again, guess it was just updating again when I started the car.
Been few months, no problems and works great.
