iDrive sat nav 2013?

Post by Big Bad Boris » Sat Sep 24, 2022 7:12 pm

Below is a screen shot of the “version” on our 2013 iDrive. Does this show the maps have never been updated since the car was new? Alternatively is it just an indication that the system is from 2013?

The map has not been updated. Current version is probably NEXT 2022-2

Genuine ones can be got from here if you have a ConnectedDrive account: https://www.bmw.co.uk/en/topics/owners/ ... dates.html

You will probably need a 64GB USB drive.

Thanks X5. I have set up a “connected” account (my Z4 doesn’t have iDrive so I’ve never needed one before). I have a new shiny memory stick, but first…..

I assume this what I need and will work on our 2013 system?

Here is the build spec from the VIN number.

Just want to be sure I’m buying the right thing before pulling the trigger :roll:

Mine asked for my VIN and only let me have the correct version for my car. S609 is what most of us have fitted.

Quick update. Downloaded the map version in the link I posted, which took hours and hours for some reason. Uploaded onto memory stick and have now updated into the car which now shows Map version as 2023-1.

So looks like Mrs Boris is all up to date 👍
