Brand new 328i delivered with 2013 maps..

So i took delivery today of my brand new 328i M-Sport which was manufactured in Jan 2015 and have just checked the latest iDrive Firmware and Maps for the navigation. To my astonishment the FW was old and the Navigation has 2013 maps loaded

So is it normal to have a vehicle delivered with such old software loaded? I mean it was only built 5 weeks ago?

Should i hit up the dealer to try and get the latest maps loaded or are they gonna try and slug me big bickies for the upgrade?

Definitely not normal.

If for some reason the dealer doesn't help you out you can always download latest map and chances are you should already have the FSC for that map.

Btw what nav do you have.

I think 328i only comes with pro-nav now

No worries, let us know how you get on.

FSC can also be generated if no luck, but so far all been good AFAIK

Thanks heaps for this it worked. I guess the factory has a standard software setup for both the idrive and nav and then require the dealer to update. Surprised it was delivered like this.

But anyway, thanks heaps for your help

You will need an enet cable and software available on the forum. There's instructions on here somewhere.

I will pm you the link to the map.

I can help members generate the FSC code but I need access to your car so you will need to be in Brisbane. Just give me a pm.

Thanks mate, appreciate the link.

I have an enet cable and software so I'll do some more research and work that bit out myself. Providing the link is more than I could expect so happy to do more ground work to help myself.
