Updating navteq gps maps
BMW recommends that you update your maps twice a year, or at least annually.You can purchase new system map updates at your local BMW Center or online.
All Navteq map updates also require the driver to type in their own unique serial number, so it’s highly unlikely that you will ever succeed in installed hacked or torrent versions of Navteq maps.
It’s not worth the trouble, and could mean you actually damage your GPS beyond repair.
