was informed by the local BMW dealer that as of 2008, the BMW cars do not use DVD for updates or issue as updates. The updated map data are downloaded into the car via the workshop computer. Is this correct ?
Assuming that the files are on the local computer hard drive, is it possible to "copy" the relevant map data file ? e.g. The IMG file ?
Newest BMW iDrive 2 navigation system uses HDD drive to load the maps.
It's not possible to install map without BMW dealer.
