Ha, nice, thanks for sharing, that is a great commercial. Not to get off topic - but I only mention it because after having issues with my car and posting it on the board, I got a call from BMWNA asking if they could be of assistance. I know it happened to another fellow as well.

Any volunteer with another set of DVD's to try? Please let me know. Thanks!

Sergej has a very reasonable price and gets your code to you quickly.

I recommend him.

Let me know when you're done. I would like to get the DVD next if there isn't a line for this set.

Thanks.

Currently I'm unable to download the map files from kmarei's site, is anybody else having some luck?

Is there any other location the files are being hosted online?

I prefer using USB drives as I would like the update to go more quickly.

Can I listen to the radio during the update? Trying to time it with a ~2 hr road trip.

Thanks all and I have an idea, for all those trading DVDs, why not chip in, buy 3 USB drives, and send those instead? I suppose the only benefit is a faster update.

-Confirmed-
The latest update from BMW appears to include some sort of security update that breaks the ability to use the DVD's, or at least, a non-authentic set of them. Another car used the same DVD's and updated just fine. It was a 2010 non-combox model.

Anyone have the authentic DVD's that I can try? Tischer stopped selling them but someone must have a set. I'm willing to pay $

Thanks

I guess I'll chime in a little late.

I have a 2009 335i with CIC and I got the nav updated successfully. Here is what I did if it helps:

- Buy 3 16GB USB (or just buy 2 and format first when 2nd one is loading) and download ISOs from here (http://kmarei.minidns.net:8000/m/BMW%20Nav/). I cant thank this guy enough.
- I had the FSC code from the dealer for free (dont ask me how). I am not sure how its working for some folks who dont have it(well lucky you).
- Inserted drive 1 in my USB of glove box and after a few seconds(you might need to go under navigation settings) update dialog showed up.

I definitely recommend USB since update is a hella lot faster and smoother. You dont need to keep the car running obviously but dont completely shut down the idrive otherwise you might have to start all over again. EDIT: If you do have to start again, it will just ask you to insert disk 1 or 2 to check where it reached last time. It wont copy again aka it will start from the last halted position so pretty cool. It wont ask for the FSC code again.

Hope it helps

Side note, does anyone know if the FSC code expires after a certain date? My dealer said its valid for 30 days and auto deletes itself. Is that true or can I use it to update to say whenever 2013 comes out?

I don't see how it can expire.

You will need a new FSC for the 2013 maps, assuming we can get the map data. The FSCs are VIN/Product-Feature specific.
