Map updates Aust.

So I updated my mkIV to 4-1/00 recently after joining this site and doing some reading - orsm.

I currently have map disc 12 (latest is 16 I believe) australia and this works fine on my existing system, tonight my mate brings over his OEM factory non copied disc 13 and my system wont recognise the disc

Q: is there something I need to do to get my system to recognise the new map disc at all?

Thanks

Dubs

there is nothing that can be changed on the nav to read or ignore different maps.

Your mates disc will be from a different vehicle with different nav

There are a few different map formats in use with BMW - eg the iDrive nav systems use different maps to the non-iDrive - with 1 exception: 10 points to you if you can point out the exception :-)

The maps from the idrive m3 and the non-iDrive X5 are different formats: incompatible and non interchangable.

To *coff* aquire one at an affordable price, become good friends with your BMW parts manager in your town and try and win one in a game of poker, swap one for a crate of beer, or get him to enter triple staff discount for you......

For your car if you have radio sat nav i.e no screen then you need the green disk. If you have a screen then you need the red disk. The purple disk is for Idrive cars. Version 15 is the latest.
