2019-2 is the current version, but it's been out for almost half a year now maybe? 2020-1 should be out soon.

I have a 2014 and have an connected drive subscription. Are the maps updated on their own or do I need to pay to get new maps downloaded?

My maps are from the original (2013). Would there be any issue if I go directly for the 2019 or 2020.
Also, what is currently the cheapest way to get the maps updated?

Maps are not updated OTA on NBT systems.

There is no issue going to the latest. You just need the map and the FSC code.

The map can be downloaded online (usually I just Google for "BMW North America NEXT 2019-2" and a couple forum threads like this one will pop up:

https://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1603011

To get the FSC code, you either need to pay someone to generate the code or do it yourself. I wouldn't pay someone for something questionable like this, so just get an ENET cable and then you will also be able to run diagnostics using ISTA and code your car.

After you pull the 0xDE file from the car, you will use that with the map code to generate the FSC code using the command line utility. The map code will be different for each release but you don't need to pull the file from the car again.

Thank you for all the good info. In my younger years when I am more ambitious, I definitely would do these things. Now, I see a price point I am comfortable with, I just buy it at that price point. Having said that, if anyone wants an updated map, you can go to Ebay and get a FSC code and the data to download for $20.

Here is the link:

I'm starting to feel that way too (am I getting old?!), but there are two exceptions I'll usually make - one for when it's in the grey area (selling FSC codes is shady business) and one for when there is value in learning how to do it myself. You know you won't be taken for a ride when you know how to do something but choose not to.
