What Map Version Will I Get?
If your current Navigation System is Premium you will get the latest Navigation Map which is Premium 2021. If your current Navigation System is Next you will get the latest Navigation Map which is Next 2021. You do not need to provide your current Map Version as the Last 7 Digits of your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) are more than enough for us to determine which system you currently have.
What Is The Difference Between Online Download and Ship USB?
You will be provided a direct download link after the purchase. This download link contains all the necessary information such as Map Data and a video instruction on how to download/uploading data onto a USB, in order to complete the update.
If you are not computer savvy this method is recommended. A USB preloaded with Map Data will be mailed to you. In order to carry out the update, all you need to do is insert the USB into your BMW USB Slot and you will be able to carry out the update. Saves a lot of time and effort.
What Do I Need In Order To Carry Out The Update?
If your method of delivery is Direct Download then you will need one 32Gb USB in order to carry out the update. If your method of delivery is Ship USB, then do not require anything to carry out the update as you will be mailed a USB that is pre-loaded with the Map Data.
What If I Fail To Upgrade Through The Direct Download, Can I Still Complete The Update?
If you have trouble updating the Maps using the Direct Download method, please let us know using the support form on the website and we shall provide the necessary support to assist you. If you are still unable to complete the update, you can order preloaded maps at a small additional cost to cover the USB and shipping.
Please note that once the Maps are made available for download or are shipped, we cannot issue a refund as the FSc codes cannot be taken back once issued.
What Is The Difference Between One Time And Life Time FSC Code?
FSC Code = Password To Update The BMW Maps
OneTime FSC Code: If you purchase the OneTime FSC Code that means that it will allow you to update your navigation system one time. For example, if your current Map Year is 2010, OneTime FSC Code will allow you to update your Map to the latest version which is 2020-1. If there is another update release in 2019 you will have to make another purchase again to get your system to the 2020-2 version.
OneTime FSC Code: LifeTime update means that you can update your system for Life with the latest Map Updates. Your Navigation system will be unlocked and it will NEVER ask you for an FSC Code once you entered the LifeTime FSC code into the system.
