Navigation Updates

I found this link yesterday:

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/acc...lroadmaps.html

It leads to a press release that says map updates will be downloaded whenever available through Connected Drive, at no cost to the owner.

Questions:
What equipment is required on the vehicle to use Connected Drive? What does Connected Drive cost?

Am I correct that the other way to get updated maps is to buy them from the dealer? And is the cost only a few bucks for the data, but a significant charge for a "code" that lets you upload the data? Does that code work permanently, so that future updates are very cheap? I read some posts that said $10 for the DVD's, and $200 for the "code" - is this accurate?

The Map Updates of the future will come via Connected Drive; however, this will require the next generation Head Unit hardware that will replace the current NBT Head Unit.

As for Map Updates for current hardware, it is like this:
  1. Option 1 - Dealer Service - This is what is normally quoted by dealerships, and it has them programming the entire car with latest ISTA/P version and updating the Map in the process. Cost is typically from $300-$500.
  2. Option 2 - Dealer Parts Department - This is the "Retail" version ordered from parts department, where you get the Map on USB Flash Drive, and the FSC Code. Often the latest Map is not available in retail packaging. Cost is typically from $200-$250.
  3. Option 3 - This is similar to Option 2, except it should be the latest map version and you will download it and make your own Flash Drive, and the cost is a fraction of Option 2.
Since you have 2013 F10, you have NBT Head Unit, which takes NEXT Map, and Road Map North America NEXT 2015-1 version of it was just released last week. See my post here:

The latest version for older CIC Head Unit is Road Map North America PREMIUM 2014-2.

I have PM'd you Option 3 details.

Could I update maps for Korea?

I live in korea and they asked me more than 1000$ for navigation updates...

So I went to web and found this page.

Could it be possible to get maps for South Korea?

If possible I'd appreciate getting it e-mailed.

My address is

Thank you.
