Cheers; spoke to sales manager yesterday and he says he's confident I'll be in it before Christmas, hopefully be able to pick it up next Friday 21st. It was in customs at Germany yesterday, so I'm hoping it will be on a ship today, landing in the UK Mon/Tues. If it doesn't go to anywhere else in the UK except the dealer, as you said, then he's said recently they've been sending their own transport to get the cars from the port; so if all goes to plan I should hopefully be picking it up on Friday...

Yes I'm sure they will, at least; if they haven't had it earlier. BMW tends to filter the tech and updates down through the Series' (the 7 Series had the new nav a while ago).

In the US, and I'm pretty sure ROW, all 5ers and 7ers got the new Nav beginning July '12 production.

I would assume so (in the UK at least, considering the side-of-the-road issue that I think has been mentioned about this), as the system is the same?

Scothall in MK just had my car in for the day to look at this issue. However, they just called to tell me "we are unable to update your car's software to the new version, because the version we have is lower that that already on your car".

A wasted day, aside from the fact I got a free de-badge and valet.

They will let me know when they have a working fix available. So I will keep yopu posted.

Got naf all as yet still pissing around, car going in tomorrow, not being looked at till monday, they will be reporting back to the tech dept @ BMW UK, so not hopeful of an early fix.
I am away thursday to Egypt for two weeks so prohaps by my return some software could be available, will keep all who are interested up to speed.
It looks like a software glitch to me as it's intermittent.

Had mine in this week at Elms and they said there is no issue. I think it's almost certainly linked to the RTTI.

At least your dealer is decent and is trying to promote a fix. Mine was hopeless and IMO mean and clueless.

I name and shame Berry BMW, West London.

Well it is not the dealerships fault that these problems occur, but it does depend on how they deal with these problems, as to what we think of them. As I have said my supplying dealership is great and I use them because they are great, the ones I have dumped are not so good.
The trouble with "name and shame" is that some customers get better service than others, it's the same throughout all services, so we best "let sleeping dogs lie".

Now "Name and Fame" I am up for.

BMWs do that to one.
The Nile cruise will be the best holiday you'll ever have. It is truly fascinating. Might be a bit hot in March though. It's very early awakenings as it boils by midday. I went in early January when the had their Coptic Christmas. If you go to Cairo, stay at the Four Seasons First Residence. Fabulous Hotel, wonderful food, great wine cellar.
We were supposed to go to Argentina this winter for 3 weeks but had some minor health issues, so could not go.
Now planning a big one for the summer. March to my house in Greece.
OOOOPS!
