BMW Navigation Map Update Process

During the whole process the engine must be kept running, to avoid any problems.
 
Connect the USB stick with the map files to the system (For Premium, Motion and Move maps use usb in the glovebox, For Next, Route and Evo maps USB in the centre console). Wait 30 seconds and you should see a pop up screen.
Use the iDrive controller to select and activate the Start update option.
Enter the 20-character FSC activation code using the iDrive controller. The activation code does not contain the digits “0” and “1” in order to prevent confusion with the letters “O” and “I”.
The map data will now be updated. Your navigation system’s basic functions continue to operate normally during this procedure. Please leave the USB stick inserted until the end of the update process.
Following successful installation of the update, the system will automatically reboot.
