BMW Update DVD Road MAP Europe PROFESSIONAL 2015 Download
The last thing you want your BMW GPS map to do is send you down a street that hasn't existed for five years, or let you spend an hour weaving through an unfamiliar town when there's a shiny new bypass that could cut your journey time in half. Thousands of miles of new roads are added as part of the BMW iDrive map update every year, so updating your maps means your navigation system is going to work a lot better.

However, if your BMW is not equipped with special cameras but does have a navigation system, you might be able to install a Speed Limit Info Retrofit from BimmerTech. It takes an hour to fit, and also requires a remote BMW coding session done by a BimmerTech technician. The upgrade removes the need for expensive cameras as it uses the updated map info to show the maximum permissible speed on each stretch of road. As the information comes entirely from the nav data, this product is only supported in areas where BMW's maps include speed limit information. Type in your VIN on the Speed Limit Information Retrofit page to check whether your car is compatible with it.
The latest BMWs, on the other hand, store the map data on an internal hard drive, which can be updated either by performing a BMW map update download and manually saving the data to the iDrive or (in some vehicles) automatically updated over-the-air by BMW.
When the process is finished, you'll be good to go. How long does the BMW map update take to upload? Again, It depends on your head unit and the last time you did a BMW navigation update download. The older your map version is, the longer it will take.
