Navteq 2007?

Anyone know what time of year the new nav disks are released? Don't want to go out and get the 2006-2 DVD just to have the 2007 version come out less than a month later

Navteq has been very sporatic and unpredictable with the frequency and timing of disk updates. I wouldn't look for a 2007 version to be released until early 2007.

Navteq 2007

Currently BMW and MINI release two navigation updates per year; one in February or March, and one in July or August which are not tied to a model year.
hope this helps,

I hate to disagree with you on your first post here, but Navteq has never released more than one a year in North America ever since the first DVD was released in 2003.

As I understand it, the raw mapping data is released on a monthly cycle & is available to manufacturers to purchase. This info directly from Navteq after submitting a batch of corrections for the 2006-2 BMW release.

It is then up to the manufacturer which mapping dataset they choose to use/release, and the frequency of release. BMW seem to choose to release twice per year. BMW also never seem to release the very latest mapping dataset, though this could be down to time taken to package and release the data they have bought from Navteq (3 month lag time?)

I spoke to my dealer about this they showed me a release date of November on their system just after the V28 release in October.

Thanks for the replies. Guess I will wait for a few months to see if the new one comes out. I just hate to spend $200 just to have a new one come out a month later.

The 2006.2 DVD for North America didn't get released until the spring of 2006. I'll be very surprised if you see the 2007 version released until spring of 2007.

Hi everyone...I purchased my 2006 x5 3.0 and it has the 2005 navigation Cd software. Is the 2007 CD software worth purchasing, is it going to be much of a difference ?

Thanks in advance

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
If you purchased your 2006 X3 after the release of the 2006 edition of Navteq, i would be asking for the latest version.
