Agreed. Just weird that so many people were able to do it successfully. Oh well. I appreciate the help.

I have been having a very difficult time in downloading the files after multiple attempts over a number of days. I am currently stationed in Germany with crappy DSL in my area, so that is likely the issue

Any wish to part with or loan a set of DVDs? Shipping would be to an APO via USPS, so it would be the same rate as any other US address. I can upload and return them back to you if preferred.

I can definitely compensate you for your time and efforts. It is great to have the opportunity to serve in Germany, but the internet here is horrific.

I am going to drop the car off in a week or two for shipment back to the US and wanted to have the maps updated for the Georgia to Kansas drive. I will the minimum amount of time to knock this out, so the early update would be of benefit! I know of a few other guys over here in a similar time frame, or within a few months.

Any assistance or advice would be appreciated!

I will gladly make a copy and send them via courier however no compensation is required, consider it a small token of apprecation for your service PM your name/address/number and I will have them out by Tuesday.

Osteome, I am assuming you bought your car through the military sales program. When I PCSed back to the States from Germany, I took my car to the BMW dealer I bought my car through and they updated my car from the Europe maps to the US maps free of charge. I recommend you try that prior to spending any of your own money. Best of luck on the move, you will definitely miss driving the M3 in Europe. Its just not the same driving in the States...

That is one that I considered. I have heard differing opinions on success in the US (no seems to have luck in San Antonio). The local German dealer does not seem to have a clue. The other rub is I plan to pick it up and knock out the drive from GA to KS and would rather not spend four hours at the dealer for the update.

I figure that the cost of the code is the price for convenience.

updating successful!

thanks to kmarei for hosting the file, and sergej to provide the FSC code.

Guys, shouldn't we all chip in to get kmarei something for his M? By hosting the files for all of us, he saved us the trouble of burning DVDs and stuff, which is a pain in the butt. Just a thought!

I'd put in on some beer/mod fund for the guy!

Can't wait to DL once I get home as the speed where I'm staying is pitiful.

I'm going to see if I can RAR the files and break them down so they're more download friendly.

So, after compressing the files, the total still comes out to a whopping 15GB. Is anyone interested? I'm not going to upload unless several people are still having problems with the original files.

If you send me the files
I can upload them and keep the ISOs
So we have 2 options
I can send you details for an FTP site

Someday I'll get down to doing this on my car
But too much going on now
I have 6 family members from my wife's family staying with us
Including a 10 month old baby
Fun!

Hi Guys I have a late 2010 built M3 that has a built in hard drive with Nav data stored. Is there any way I could upgrade that without taking and paying to the dealer?

The option isn't there any more, or it doesn't work when you toggle it? Night mode is working on mine and a handful of other cars that I updated.

The update shouldn't have affected night mode as that's part of the software (operating system) in the CIC, and is stored in a completely separate place than the MAP data.

Those of you that need a link to the ISO's let me know.


Edit: I think I know why your night mode isn't working. Click to the right to get to the options screen, make sure that Night Mode is checked, and then un-check the option for "Traffic conditions/grey maps".

That should bring your night mode back again Let us know if it does the trick.

Just a quick note to say that I successfully updated the maps in both of my BMWs, a 2009 M3 and a 2011 X535d using the USB technique (on a mac, fwiw). I purchased the codes for both cars for $100 from Sergej Markovic (*****************), who was very responsive. A sincere thank you to kmarei for hosting the files!
