You can actually grab the 1B or DE file from E-sys by doing the following:

FSC Extended

Base variant 0x63 (For HU_CIC or HU_NBT)
Click Identify
Application ID 0x1B for (App ID 27 for CIC) 0xDE (App ID222 for NBT) <--- This is the App for your Nav enabler
Upgrade Index 0x1

Move Store FSC from the left to the right
Click Read
Click Save and name the file FXXXXXX_0001B001.fsc for CIC or FXXXXXX_000DE001.fsc for NBT where FXXXXXX is your VIN.

I've tried this method for both CIC and NBT and it works.

Trying Aritaurus method above with E-Sys, but am getting the following error:

"Base variant not determinable. Check diagnostic address. [G175]"

I'm using the following data for CIC:
- Diagnostic Address: 0x63
- Base Variant: HU_CIC
- Application number: 27
- Upgrade Index: 0x1

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Would this method mean that you don't need a cable like this?

That is only for Activation of a Retrofitted Head Unit where Head Unit VIN & FSC Codes do not match car VIN.

Yes, but being able to create whole new FSC codes to match one's VIN would replace the need in getting a cable like that, right? Or am I missing something?

I'm planning on doing a NBT Navi retrofit.

There are many different FSC Codes in Head Unit, of which you can only generate one of them, thus for retrofitted Head Unit you still need the activation module.

help with a e89

Hi all, I've spent the last 5 to 6 hours reading all of the posts on obtaining the FSC but am having problems determining the exact procedure for my 2011 Z4, an E89.

Will someone kindly confirm if I should be buying the Enet cable or the k+dcan usb cable? I have not been able to find anywhere that has any specific reference to my car, so I'm hoping some generous soul will help me out.

Thanks in advance!

ENET Cable is for Fxx use only.

For normal coding and diagnosis of Exx cars, you would use a DCAN Cable. However, you cannot read 1B file from CIC with DCAN Cable. Instead you need an expensive ICOM Interface. And, you cannot use E-Sys to read it either. You would have to use a program called SWID Reader.

Thanks Shawnsheridan. I appreciate your reply. I have the swid reader, and have watched videos on how to use it. Will I be able to access my cars FSC code by using the k+dcan wire?

No, I don't think so. All Exx owners I have ever heard from cannot read it with DCAN, and those with ICOM can.

You can check by looking in the Info_Map.imp file.

The region code is 2 bytes at offset 8, and the sequence number is the 2 bytes after that.
Maybe a crazy question, but what program do you use to open the Info_Map.imp file? I tried notepad and all I see is . - ZO %Road Map North America PREMIUM 2015-1

I'm still not able to see the region code and region number in that file... Is there a setting in Notepad++ I need to change in order for it to display those characters?

You need a hex editor. I used HexEdit.

Notepad++ will do it if you enable the Hex Editor plugin.

Are you saying that Achem is an alternative to open the binary image file, or are you asking a question?

I have BMW F10 530xD (2013 year pre-facelift). Here are the steps I went through updating my map. I have professional navigation (NBT - next big thing). Originally the navigation had Road map Europe Next 2013. I downloaded Europe Next 2014-2, formatted 32 GB stick with FAT32 filesystem, copied the files and plugged into the usb port of the car. The car started transferring the contents to the internal hard drive and after one hour successfully updated the map. On the next restart of the car - it wanted the activation code. I wasn't able to extract it with SWID tool so I used Ariataurus method with the following settings into E-Sys (downloaded E-sys from http://rutracker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4662346 ) - (there are installation instructions within the torrent):
- Diagnostic Address: 0x63
- Base Variant: HU_NBT
- Application number: 0xDE
- Upgrade Index: 0x1
I successfully extracted the FSC code and saved it to a file - FDZ17056_000DE001.fsc.
Then downloaded BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator from https://mega.co.nz/#F!ugo0HB5L!TPCmejMKPBlRRkz2SDvg0Q. Extracted it and then went to NBT_fsc subdirectory. Then issued the command
fsc FDZ17056_000DE001.fsc 0xA9 0x05 last_seven_digits_of_you_vin_here
and got the correct activation code. The correct parameters for map Europe Next 2014-2 are 0xA9 and 0x05.
Thanks to everybody in this forum for their great posts.
