iDrive 2.0 Navigation Map Update

Just wondering if anyone has had their navigation maps updated on the new iDrive navigation system that is hard drive based?
My iDrive states version 2009.1. Where do you get the update and how much does it cost? In the past is was a simple DVD purchase.

Map updates for CIC based systems are now installed through your dealer.

Either you purchase the map's DVD set and FSC code at your dealer using your VIN or let them do the whole load.

I got the email from BMW advertising the map update and directing me to their website (run by TeleAtlas): store.bmwgpsmaps.com

Of course, my dealer (who is *always* completely ignorant of anything nav-related) first sold me the wrong discs, even after I told them I was pretty sure they were wrong, and now wants to charge me $380+ to do the update, despite the website clearly advertising this at a cost of $199.

I *hate* having to deal with the dealership on stuff like this. I called BMW customer service, who is going to call the dealer, but I have little confidence.

Suggestions?
