Installation

The new map update process is effortless and straightforward. It may take about 5–30 minutes depending on when your last update was carried out.

BMW recommends performing a navigation system map update at least once a year. For anybody who drives a lot, though, it’s better to get new information every three to six months.

NOT JUST THE NEWEST ROUTES

When you regularly refresh your BMW navigation, your map shows you:

• New roads opened or existing ones closed
• Time-saving detours for your usual rides
• Intuitive management like a smartphone
• Possibility to enter the destination via free search
• Fast route recalculation in case of changes in the traffic situation
• Precise calculation of the estimated time of arrival
• Almost 300 000 new points of interest added each year
• Current speed limit information (for cars with speed limit/cameras retrofit)

HOW TO UPDATE

In vehicles that require manually updating your navigation's map data, the process is simple and no BMW coding software or programming is required. The map data is loaded to a USB flash drive which can be plugged in to the USB port in your BMW's glove compartment (in older vehicles with the CIC iDrive system) or arm rest (in newer vehicles).
The system will automatically detect that there is a new map available to install on the iDrive. You'll be prompted to enter a BMW-issued FSC activation code with your iDrive controller to begin installation. Everything is done through the USB port, meaning you won't need to use any BMW coding software.
