I guess it is time to set something up.

- It's going to be totally free
- I can also update your SatNav maps to latest 2015-1 (free!)

Update:
Please download the appropriate map to a USB disk prior (Read why?) to visiting me. I can then provide a unique code for each of your cars.

Download links for 2015-1 European maps.
Europe_Professional_2015

Reply with what you would like done and which date is more suitable, I am more inclined to Sun.

Update:
1) I have added the location above.

Dammit, this would be perfect for me, but I don't think I would have taken delivery of the new car by then

Yay! Either Saturday or Sunday, I don't mind, whatever the majority agrees on. I will also update later with what I'd like done. Can you either post or pm your/meeting place address.

Thanks so much gspannu!

Polite Request:

Anyone who wishes to upgrade their maps to 2015 (Professional SatNav Media), then Please download the maps from here to a 32GB or larger USB disk and I will provide the necessary code for you.

Maps take a long time to update (1 hour or so), so it serves everyone if people can bring their own USB drives/disks with the maps downloaded. I will provide the code for each car and then you can update at your leisure or on your way back home.

I do have the maps on my laptop, but it does take a while to copy 30GB data onto USB disk, so requesting people to bring their own copy - this will avoid anyone having to wait while maps are being copied.

If you are unable to download the maps, then please bring a laptop and a (blank) 32GB or larger USB along. I will give you my maps on a portable drive and you can then use your own laptop to copy these to your own USB disk - this way at least my laptop will be available to carry on coding the cars.

Thanks very much mate! There's a small chance I may take delivery on the saturday but its all down to when it comes off the ship. If I do then a nice blast down the Basingstoke on the Sunday would be great. If not I appreciate the time to do it another time.

Cheers

Thanks for the PM gspannu!

Unfortunately I can't make it :-(

Also for the purposes of those attending, and are downloading the maps, was that for NBT units only (as we were speaking about this in PM and last we spoke it was NBT specific)?

Great. Just saw your PM about formatting the USB drive.

You can format the disk either as FAT32 or exFAT - both are fine...

it is very interesting to see if my F07 (2013, professional sat nav, NBT) can be upgraded to the latest map.

Do I need to purchase the FSC code for this upgrade? If yes, how much will it be? Do you need my VIN to generate the FSC code? All these all free? (that will be lovely!)

I have downloaded that map data and extracted to a 32GB SD card, going to use a card reader to plug into the car. From your description, it may take a while to load. Does it take 1hour? or 2 hours?

I guess the engine better to be running during the upgrade, so I need to plan driving to somewhere (hopefully with the amount of time required for the upgrade)

Have you spotted anything new (roads) since you have done the upgrade?
Yes, the F07 can also be upgraded - no problems.

No, You do not need to purchase a FSC code nor a VIN. I will read a file from your car and then generate a unique code. This is indeed totally FREE !
Once I have read this file from your car; I can then generate codes for future maps as well.

Mao updates take around an hour or so. You do not need to plan a long trip, you can start/stop your car and the update picks up again automatically from where it stopped, and the best part is that your old maps/ sat-nav continues to function during the update as well.... great BMW technology !

Spotting any new roads on the maps - difficult to tell, but I am sure there will be new stuff.

I haven't really timed these things, its first come first served.... so turn up anytime and we'll get working.

Since you might have a long drive back home, I'm sure other attendees will accommodate you if we need to bump you up.

Just saw your post on my wall (and remember you well).

I have not specifically done the CIC maps, but we can try on Sunday if you are coming around. We can update your token as well - no problems.

As to download links, here are the 3 links for 2015-1 European maps.

Europe_Professional_2015
