Vendor feedback: great source for Navigation DVD

Since our new to us X5 still had a navigation DVD from 2009, I decided to update it.

I bought them from a seller on eBay: I was a little skeptical at the beginning, because of the price, but they turned out excellent and work like a charm. I paid 15 bucks for the 2013 version (update in 2012) which comes in 2 DVD (one for east and one for west).

Not only they work as advertised, but the seller was very helpful so I thought I would let you guys know since I was the guinea pig and the experience was great: http://myworld.ebay.com/twnavigation

Of course I am in no way affiliated with this guy, and your mileage might vary. If in doubt, sent him a message and he'll tell you which one you need for your car.

Enjoy!!!!

Thank you.
Unfortunately for us Canucs shipping is more $$ than dvd itself, so I got it from internet "for free" - by spending whole Sunday evening downloading, burning, testing.
However end result is there - I have a 2013 set that works.
Thanks for pushing me to finally do it.
Next - my Garmins has to be updated..

Did your update help in updating Canadian maps? If so, I would be interested in purchasing a copy from you.

alex800st, what I meant was if with the new DVD, whether the Canadian maps were updated or just the USA maps were updated. On my original DVD when I use a new portion of the freeway that was built several years ago still shows that I am travelling through a farmers field.

Looks like both, because when I check my local area, I see new restaurants etc. If you tell me which freeway - I can try take a look.
