Navigation DVD 2012

I just bought a Update DVD Road Map Europe Professional 2012 Disc from bmwnavi.co.uk, is there any chance of something going wrong if i was to insert the disc into the car?. The reason im asking is because i was speaking to one of the guys down at BMW and he advised me that sometimes these discs and completely corrupt the whole ECU. All Advise welcome!

The BMW inbuilt sat navs are absolutely crap, the graphics are crap and you can't even enter a postcode. A £80 tomtom is miles better. Does anyone why BMW make such crap sat navs. I've an 08 m3 coupe.

I found that the drive made very annoying whirring noises with my aftermarket disc. Mind you that was a couple if years ago. Anyone else notice this? I think the guy used low quality DVD blanks and the drive struggles to read it. Putting the old one back all us back to normal.

Yes you can enter post codes and the 2010 onward nav is much nicer.

Rubbish. The DVD reader just reads the data on the disc, it does not copy it or send it anywhere. Usual BMW salesman nonsense.....where do they get these people!

Any help or advice is welcome

Well I wrote to the guy and asked him if he'd consider using top quality discs. Got a rather unhelpful reply saying he only used the best and had had no other complaints. Which doesn't give me the confidence to use him again.

Take an ISO image of the disc, buy quality media and burn your own copy.

Isn't it a dual layer disc? Do I need a special burner for that?

Any burner made in the last 5 years will do Dual layer, you do need to get dual layer media though. Most is single.
