    My Sat Nav unit can't read the disc and spits it out after 10 second.

    Can anyone help.
    Or is this not compatible with my car???

    I'm not familiar with the old 7-series nav, but if your system is the BMW High (mk1 mk2 mk3 mk4) or RED Disc, then try the link below
    (have a read of the thread to determine if it applies to your car)...

    BMW High 2010 AUSTRALIA V16 (red disc)

    Re: BMW Navigation Australia / New Zealand Professional 2010 Road Maps

    We've recently bought a 2007 530D with Motorsport pack. It has GPS, but the display is limited to a large arrow on the screen, or position coordinates. There was no disc included with the otherwise complete documentation for the car. The iDrive screen is 6.5" and from reading this thread I've downloaded the business navigation 2009 pack and burned a CD. I insert the CD into the drive, which it accepts, but then there is no action. No error message, it just sits there with the CD somewhere in its innards and no change on the display. Do I have a "poverty pack" GPS or is there something I should be doing to activate the information?

    Thanks

    Rob

    If you can see the large arrows (as stated) you already have the Map CD loaded OR have the Maps on a HDD (unlikely). Are you placing the Map CD in the iDrive system OR the CD Player?

    I've been using the slot below the iDrive screen. There is a 6-stack CD player in the glovebox...

    Being new to BMWs and the Nav systems, I perhaps mistakenly thought that loading a later map system (mine is a 2007 E60 530D Motorsport) would give me an actual street layout a-la any of the TomTom, Garmin aftermarket ones. I note some BMWs do have this type of display - what is the system requirement for this to be enabled?
    Thanks

    If you have the basic Arrow display and smaller 6.5" screen, then yours is the Business Navigation system based on the older M-ASK technology...
    iDrive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A later version of M-ASK provided map displays for Business navigation. More advanced functionality was provided by Professional navigation with larger 8.8" widescreen (optional on most cars). This was based on Car Communication Computer (CCC) technology.

    Of course both technologies have now been superseded by new computers, displays and iDrive controller. The new Business navigation is provided on Car Information Computer (CIC) Basic using Flash storage, while Professional navigation is now provided on CIC Professional using hard drive.

    Worked perfectly on my UK imported 2007 X5 e70, thanks, saved me $400
    Will BMW ever bring anything out with speed alerts that will work? Really got used to that feature on my little $150 Navman! Very handy when you are new in a Country
