Exclamation So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye ...

Looks like NavTeq is officially done with BMW...

NAVTEQ - Navigation Map Updates for Your BMW - BMW

The new company, Tele Atlas, sent me this reply when I asked about a map disk for a BMW X5 DVD based nav system:


Dear Sir,

We do support this navigation system . The brand might make use of our mapping material but we do not sell products which have the USA mapped on them.We have mapped USA, but the producer of the system has not opted to develop a product with these maps. It of course depends on which system you have built-in. If it is a Blaupunkt system or a VDO system, we can guarantee you that there is no USA product on the market.

Kind Regards,

The Tele Atlas team


Hope that the USA doesn't change any roads past 10-2008... b/c we're screwed

Well that totally sucks. I am guessing that some negotiations went south. I wonder if Tele Atlas will pick up our early systems some day.

What is most confusing is that they still make the disks for Europe and the rest of the world.

This can not last long, because BMW has a lot of new X3, X5, 6 Series, and other models on the lots that depend on these disks. That would make for a tough sell if a customer could never get an update for a brand new car. It is time to mount a friendly letter campaign to BMW-NA to encourage them to work things out.

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
I'm thinking brand new cars don't require these discs
as the Navi resides on the hard drive.... correct?
BimmerFile Archive iDrive to have 80GB hard disk

Just because NavTeq no longer makes the map discs for BMW, doesn't mean that the maps (and future maps) are no longer available

Maybe BMW has simply changed their supplier from NavTeq to someone else?

eg TeleAtlas sell BMW map discs for Europe:
Online Shop - Tele Atlas

So maybe TeleAtlas will become the new map supplier for BMW USA....

The brand new F01 and F10 models have gone to Tele Atlas data on the hard drive. However, all of BMW's other new models still rely on the DVD map disks that Navteq used to produce. So, if you were to go and buy a new 650i or X5today, the newest map disk BMW could give you is 16 months old.

I am hoping that Tele Atlas will pick up the disks for the US. Maybe they will be more price-competative too. I can always dream.

I'm not sure if you read my 1st post here and also this thread:

http://www.xoutpost.com/navigation-s...h-updates.html

Yes Tele Atlas is the new guy, but you can see their response to me and given that all BMW's will have hard drive based systems going forward, the old technology is getting laid to rest. I suppose the writing was on the wall when the last Nav update (v32) came out in June 2008 and nothing since.

Of note, the new NavTeq Land Rover disks come in two flavors.
- One DVD for North America (version 2009-2010) that covers the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Canada, for $199.
- A second option that comes as two DVD's called the North America and Mexico version (version 2009-2010) and covers
the continental United States, Canada and now Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are included, for $349.

Brian - a letter campaign is a great idea. Want to start one? or better yet how about a website petition that people can sign up on? WWW.BMWNAVDISK.COM or something???

Thsi is very interesting, Since BMW provided the navigation systems for some Range Rovers (don't know what Years though) I wonder if the updated DVD's for Land Rover would work in The Bmw Professional DVD System? Also curious as to the actual date of the 2009-2010 update. Anyone know if is updated beyond what BMW offers?
