I tried buying these: from seller neco223 on eBay. No dice.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get my maps updated? You would have a highly grateful fan in me. I got the OS to update, just cannot get the map disks right.

The downloads discussed in this thread are for the hard drive based system that BMW introduced in 2009. The discs are only used to load the data to the hard drive and do not remain in the drive for functionality.

If you have the disc based system, then perhaps Ebay may be the best source.
Geekgirl did mentioned how he/she purchased a 2 disc dvd from ebay and from that particular link, that would be the disc based navigation maps.

I'm not familiar with the mini so I got nothing for you

You can try whats77inhisname's link. Seems like the best option for ya
