Navigation system upgrade

Hello,
I have a navigation system professional 2011 edition inbuilt in my car and now i would like to upgrade it. i know i can get this done from a BMW garage but the price is around 300 CHF. is there a BMW garage around waldshut or konstanz which can do this upgrade cheaper.
also, is it not possible that i can buy the navigation cd online on ebay and install it myself? any pointers would be highly appreciated.
i have never done this before and hence looking for a cheaper way of upgrading my navigation system.

cheers

Re: Navigation system upgrade

The map data discs can be easily bought online for a fraction of the cost. Drive unit is norm in the boot. Open and replace job done.

The data is also available for free but depends if you have the correct burner and discs.

Re: Navigation system upgrade

Hello Rob1,
Thanks for your quick reply. can you also post me a link here where i can buy the disc online? sorry for my stupid question. typing in bmw x5 navigation update disc in google brings up several links and i dont find a reliable source that is housed in Switzerland. i tried with several search keywords in google but each one brings up more confusing links and i dont want to buy a wrong disc. i have a bmw x5 3.0 sd from 2008.

Thanks in advance

Re: Navigation system upgrade

ok, some patient searching brings up a link

https://bmw-navi-maps.co.uk/en/

however this website has no address in uk, only an email and phone number is given. has anybody used this website to buy such an upgrade?

also, is it legal to buy an upgrade like that online? obviously the price is very cheap compared to the price quoted by my garage. hence asking if such a thing is legal in Switzerland?

cheers

why not try Ricardo

Just make sure that you buy the right DVD for the right navigation version (for example Business DVD does not work in a Professional system).

Re: Navigation system upgrade

Hello,
I am going to buy the upgrade DVD for 2015 from a BMW garage in Germany. However upon enquiry they say that the upgrade 2015 covers Croatia and Slovenia partially. this is the problem i have with professional 2011 version and this is the main reason why i wanted to upgrade but the garage says even when a new BMW is bought, it comes with this version (2015) of navigation where Croatia and Slovenia are not covered.

can somebody advise what options i have to be sure that i have correct maps when i go to Croatia (through Slovenia) in the next few days? is there a DVD that i can buy and use with my navigation system where these countries are covered?

cheers

Re: Navigation system upgrade

I'm afraid I can't help with specifics but you may want to try this forum. They have a specific topic area that specializes in BMW Nav systems, etc. If your question isn't already answered, you may be more likely to get a good answer there. Good luck!
