Agree, it isn't the new nav. But the old one is still nice. And the car is awesome!

I am from Russia and my F30 (sedan) make the last week of January 2013. The dealer promises that I will have a new NBT.

I guess? But it is more likely that the world will end tomorrow.
Well you were wrong about the World Ending... how about that NAV in the 5 series that will make its way into the 3. In theory if they run out of old Nav, you have your new nav nice and early! Again, world ending isn't a go, how about that new NAV!

Well, the new Nav will indeed make it to the F30, likely with MY2014 i.e. July 2013 production.

They're not going to "run out" of the old Nav, because they have to use it for 2+ years in current cars like the E89/E70/E71/E84/E82/E88. Besides, I only have to wait 28 more days for the new Nav, as I pick up my ActiveHybrid 3 next month

I suspect your dealer is correct. Seems only BMWNA is holding off on new Nav.

My dealer actually heard from their BMW rep that the reason/excuse has to do with legal issues in US. Horse manure. The AH3, F10 and F07 have it NOW. Its marketing nonsense and BMWNA wants something for the MY14 upgrade sheet to make the new F30 MY more compelling to buyers. Or, could have something to do with BMW US Manufacturing not getting the new Nav for any of their models for MY13 (and from what I understand MY14)

Maybe the F07 and F10 gets the new touch controller for MY14 and the F30 gets the new Nav w/o the touch controller. Just to keep the F07 and F10 more upscale. A guess.

if you go to bmw site and click on build and select nav you should be able to see

(Navigation system with iDrive and Real Time Traffic Information - convenient functions at your fingertips.
The highly detailed maps now offer a variety of views to help make finding your route even easier. If you want more than the 2-D view, select a night view, a height mode, or even 3-D perspective. You can also add verbal or written instructions. Take advantage of the travel planner, for any trip requiring multiple stop-off points. Up to 30 different locations can be programmed along the same route. By switching from a DVD-based system to a quicker, hard drive-based system, BMW also increased the operation speed )maybe the hardware is update but not the software I hope im right lol

3D with current CIC Nav?

BMWNA also changed the screenshot image when you view the Interior dash shot to show the new Nav on all F30's. They did that beginning November 2012. However no new Nav actually in the car. Lawsuit? Probably not, just amounts to stupidity on their part.

Very stupid to make the american market to wait a whole year from BMWNA, it's like selling a car, complete with 4iPhone, when all competitors are selling cars with 5-th )))

And for BMW owners iPhone 5s/6 may be released before BMW officially supports iPhone5 and offers a dock.

Ho hum.

Played around with the new nav and there isn't much different to the old one. Everything is animated which can get annoying pretty quickly. In fact I prefer the old design. Don't stress guys. The old idrive is still brilliant.

No F30s for N. America get the NBT Nav for MY2013. This has been confirmed by owners with PW45 cars.

My CA made the claim the phones pair better and it's much faster. How much, I do not know. I am on the fence about ordering so can't look at 5 for fear I will have second thoughts!

The new traffic is NIGHT AND DAY for me with the Bay Area compared to the old one. I get traffic overlays for literally every city street around work while the old system only tended to show highways and very major roads.

Good to know. Half the time I'm in my car, it is heavy traffic conditions.

I suppose some of the features are country specific. Here in South Africa, most of the online features and traffic is useless
