I found what I needed to do the update here:

The direct link to the torrent file is in post #58 of the thread as

Attached Files
BMW_CIC_NAVIGATION_NORTH_AMERICA_2013.torrent.txt (217.6 KB, 27 views)

Download file to USB Stick.
Insert USB stick into port in glovebox.
If car recognizes file to upgrade maps, you are good to go.
Get FSC code for your car(e-mail address for Sergej can be found in the thread on e90post)
Enter activation code.
Takes 40-45 minutes to load up maps and reboot system.

I was able to update my wife's, 2009 E93 335i w/ 1-31-09 build, my 2009 750Li w/ 4-28-09 build and also my friend's 2010 E64 650i w/ 6-25-2010 build date.

Good luck.

Some links to pics of iDrive screen during the above process are below.
