Are we still on for the new nav system starting November?

Also, is there any way to ensure during the ordering process that you're actually getting the new system other than just getting a November start date?

Here is the original news article on Nov production : http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=716908

Well, we still have MY2012 over here so november production means MY2013 and new navigation. So quite easy to see for us (I'm in Europe). Harder for you guys to see since BMW USA decided to introduce MY2013 with M Sport.

The dealers i've spoken to told me they never heard of a new system in November. And when I Google it, everything leads back to this forum.

Is there anything besides this form to confirm this?

I asked a similar question in another thread...when can we order so that we get a week 45 build?

Thanks,

So, I've already put in an order for an F30 M-sport with this new nav with a CA near Baltimore through ED near the end of July. He wrote on the ED order sheet to make sure my car is built with the new nav and submitted for ED pick-up around the thanksgiving time frame.

I still have not received a production number yet (I'm thinking this is pretty obvious?? not sure), nor have I received an order number yet either. I've been trying to contact my CA but haven't heard from him in a while and so I've been hesitant to post to these forums about anything specific about my order.

Seems to have been a very, very tight time frame in which it could have bneen done. I ordered just over two weeks ago and have a W43 build and yet a car ordered today would have a January 2013 build.

Just a heads-up ... Novemeber production of new Nav is not guranteed. Canada is 100% for sure not getting new Nav this year. You might want to hold up on placing orders if that is your core requirement, as nothing has been confirmed w/ the exception of a few european countries.

Maybe it's German built cars only? If your car comes from Germany then it will have the new NAV as of W45. That's confirmed from several sources. It's not like they're going to see a car come down the line and shout "Vait! Ze Canadian car iz cummink down ze line! Shtop ze line und get ze old SatNAV!" That would be silly. Now if your car is built elsewhere then that might make sense

You're wrong my friend. Canadian cars (for the most part) are Germany builds. Same line. I agree that it makes no sense ... but they are 100% going to be using different parts (old Nav) on the same assembly line. Canadian MY2013 started in August ... and Canada did not want to introduce a model change update mid-year.. hence why it will NOT be included in November, and likley won't be included on the F30 until MY2014 (August 2013).

Europe on the other hand does not begin MY2013 until November, hence why it is being introduced at that time.

Each market can dictate when they want to introduce its enhancements to their lines.

Well, I have seen it on the real world F31s that are popping up out there now so it does exist. The F31 gets it from the production start.

So, you're saying this post is wrong?

Certain markets will have different rollout dates, but this is the expected dates for the U.S. market.

This was too funny!!! I nearly fell of my chair here at work!

But on a serious note: the Canadian market WILL NOT get the new nav until the next model year, i.e. 2014! These guys suck like hell here in BMW Canada; what a bunch of morons!

Thanks Jason.

Is there a way to determine from an order if the car does indeed have the new technology?

My M-Sport is scheduled for a week 45 production out of Munich, I cannot wait for it! I am hoping I get the new system, but I guess I will find out late December, early January for sure!
