Navigation Map Update

I recently purchased the navigation map update package North America Premium 2018 for a 2014 28i X1.

I created four USB thumb drives as instructed but am having problems downloading the apps to the car. When I insert the first of four USB thumb drive into the USB port, I am expecting to see the prompt to enter the FSC Enabling Code, but nothing is happening. I waited for over five minutes, but nothing!


The instructions said to insert the thumb drive into the USB port located in glove box, but the X1 does not have a USB port in the glove box. It has only one USB port which is located in the front console by the ashtray. Could this be the problem?


I previously did an installation to my 328i without any problem, so I thought it would be a straightforward process to upgrade my daughter's car.

I would appreciate any help form those who have successfully upgraded their GPS system.

Thanks.

Indeed it is there - takes good eyes and a bit of contorting to find it - tucked away in the upper left-hand corner of the glovebox.

Thanks, you are a life saver! There is a USB port in the glove box! Its on the right upper corner near the front. You have to literally stick your head down to the floor mats and look up with a high beam light to see it.

I found when I did the multimedia update that it would not recognize a USB3 thumb drive but USB2 worked fine. Stuck with the same thumb drive for the maps, but used the glovebox USB connection for that.
