This is my first car with a navigation system and the car's seems to be in need of an update.
The version said "Road map North America premium2010".
I live in Staten Island NY.
What is the best, easiest and least expensive way to update it.
I have purchased Road Map North America PREMIUM 2017-1 from Gerry at BMW Nav Codes multiple times. He has a very quick turnaround.
The cost is $50.00 USD (versus $250 - $300 USD from Dealership), payable via PayPal to: "bmwnavcodes(at)gmail.com"
(preferably made as "Send money to friends and family" and not "Pay for goods or services").
Upon receipt of Payment, Gerry will send you the Map Update FSC Code (generated per your VIN), Map Download Links, and Instructions.
I did my updates through Bimmer America LLC. I'm sure other methods work fine, but I felt more comfortable doing it through a website. I did the update with a single 64 GB flash drive and kept my laptop with me during the update.
I used BimmerAmerica on this forum. It was $65 for the download. You need to be a little savvy with the download, files, and USB sticks unless you get the single USB stick with all the data. I went from the 2010 to the 2016-2 edition.
I just did my update for my 2011 x5 thru BIMMERAMERICA, it was super easy and only $75. they shipped me 4 USBs, install in glovebox and just follow prompts, very easy and took about 1 hour. BIMMERAMERICA.COM for details
