      It is necessary to have 2 positions:

      - Navigation DVDs
      - Activation Code (from dealer only)

            Hi friends,
            thanks for the answer.

            The activation code is "binded" with the S/N of my car? Or I can buy the update DVD and use it with more cars?

              DVD from dealer is only for your car, dealer order DVD update for your S/N car, no use more cars, BMW speak "copyright"...

              maybe use this DVD update on other car if you have activation code from dealer

                  i think it would be nice to write (under a sticky) that newest idrive systems (with HDD) CAN NOT BE MANUALY upgraded. car has to be connected to a tester and on-the fly upgraded from German servers. thus, this can be ONLY DONE @ the authorized BMW Service partners.
                  - the end

                    Hi,

                    that's probably not an exact information. I have talked to a dealer today and there are 2 ways to upgrade Navi. The first one is through tester and the second one is DVD and code from the dealer. The code costs about 200 Eur (in both cases) and the dvd costs 25 Eur in addition to the code (if chosen). The same information is included in operation manual to the car. But I don't know, if the code could be used in another car also or if there is some kind of protection. Ivan

                      yes, this is correct but at the end you again need an activation code, so let me correct my previous statement and say that, activation is needed and it is unique. it cannot be used again on another car, also generated code is put to a memo (service book) on the car's history. for now there is no way to bypass this, so it does not really help if you have DVDs. you can not use it.

                        If you have DVDs phisically in your hands you will be allowed to make copy in order to add/adjust Points of interest (e.g. Velox)) then install update via modified DVDs using your own activation code.

                          I had my maps updated at the dealer - not much different. I had Premium 2008-2 and now have Premium 2011, I can't see any difference. This is for Europe.

                            Hi all,

                            Philjs, does it update the general look & feel of the system?
                            Are music covers available etc...?

                            Thx
