2012 NAV map update for a 2009 E90

Not to sound like an idiot at all but I have read and re-read as much as I can get my hands on but am still confused as hell.

I just want to update the NAV maps on my 2009 E90 to the latest. (Should be an easy process.)
I have the Hard Drive option so I dont know if thats a CCC system or CIC system.

Where can I buy these discs and What exactly do I need and need to do? I perfer not going back to BMW to do this as I have been told it is very easy to do myself and cheaper.

I am reading about FSC codes. What are they userd for?

If someone wants to explain this verbally I would be more than happy to reach out.

Thanks

You have a CIC system - the CCC is the DVD based navigation system on 08's. FSC codes are used to unlock the DVDs so you can install them into your car - think of it as piracy protection. FSC codes are unique for each VIN so you can't use someone else's.

Thanks for the reply.
Can I purcahse these disks from BMW?

I rely on my NAV everyday for business reasons and want to upgrade and dont mind paying for the disks. I just dont want to pay BMW for something that I can do myself. I am thinking that what I need is found at the following link. Do you think that it comes with the FSC codes and everything else that I need?

Thanks Again.

The 3-DVD set costs about $10 or so at your local dealer, P/N 01990037287; you may receive 2 sets of DVD's, the 2011ii and the 2012 versions for the same price. The enabling codes (FSC) cost about $350 at your dealer.

Contact forum vendor BimmerTech for less expensive map FSC.

You can update your own maps if you get the FSC in a pdf document: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...23&postcount=3

There is no need of the dealer, but most probably they are going to tell you otherwise.

Technic thanks for the response. I checked a few dealers around me and no one has the disk set any more. They all say it is discontinued.

Any ideas?

At least it lasted quite some time... the crackdown is here.

Updates will be handled exclusively by the dealer then.

So I received my FSC code very quickly from one of the sites that were recommended in this forum.

Would someone be willing to rent me thier DVD's of the 2012 Navigation Maps or very possibly copy the ones they have.

I have no problem for paying for the DVD rental or for your time and material to copy the disks.

Thanks
