You can always find out 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.

Here's an example from the 2015-1 North America NEXT map:

Am I doing something wrong. Every time I try and run fsc, I get the following output.

C:\EC-Apps>fsc.exe NPXXXXX_001B0001.fsc 0x2D 0x09

version after create() = 0xD1.

You have to b64dec (decode from MIME) the .fsc to binary first. Then feed the binary version to the fsc generator.

The generator only works on the binary version of the FSC.

Binary FSC's are always 319 bytes long.

For 2015-1 NA Premium, it's in the USB1\pkgdb\INFO_MAP_NA_112134_2_12 directory. The # part of the directory may change from region and sequence, so just look for the INFO_MAP_NA_... directory.

The file name can also vary, but it always starts with Info_Map...

It generates the FSC in three steps. But you have to change the "year-parameter" in the batch-file to a later map (e.g. 2016 - or even later - instead of 2014), then it works perfectly.
The Default 0x06 for 2014 does not work, but 0x09 does!

In adition, you'll need an ENET cable and a working EDIABAS intallation (32-bit - It does not run on 64-bit Windows!)

Look for the intruction Video on Youtube:




thank you very much for the tip Dr.Ho

Hi there guys, this is a great thread - very informative. Is there possibly a newer version of the generator linked by Dr.Ho, one that includes Road Map Europe Move 2015?

Right, I pulled my FSC with e-sys, base64 encoded it using http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp

Copy paste into a new file on a SINGLE LINE and save as FXXXXXX_0001B001.fsc for CIC or FXXXXXX_000DE001.fsc for NBT where FXXXXXX is your VIN.

Then downloaded BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator.rar from

https://mega.co.nz/#F!ugo0HB5L!TPCmejMKPBlRRkz2SDvg0Q

Followed those instructions:
Generating FSC code for CIC systems, copy fsc.exe in the "CIC_FSC" to "tools"
Generating FSC code for NBT systems, copy fsc.exe in the "NBT_FSC" to "tools"

Drag and dropped my base64 encoded FSC into the GUI and selected the correct map, clicked GENERATE.

It didnt work the first time, I didnt put the correct VIN in the file name, this seems important since I changed it to the correct VIN, tried it again and my NAV accepted the code without problems.

Hi,

I am French, and I'm trying with difficulty translating your comments I am very interested.

I understand: It is impossible to generate the activation code card with only the VIN (7 characters)?

You connected your PC to the car with it cable?

Thank you to you.

Fabrice,

1- Tu dois récupérer la cartographie en premier lieu et la copier sur une clé USB (32 Go minimum).
Pour la dernière carto Europe "Europe_Next_2014-2" pour le GPS PRO (NBT) tu auras donc sur ta clé USB un répertoire du genre "NAVD_000014B9_255_001_048"

Pour te procurer la carto, demande à shawnsheridan qui te filera un lien de téléchargement

2- Tu insères la clé dans ton port USB et tu suis les instructions

3- il va te demander le fameux cade FSC que tu récupères au moyen de 2 logiciels:
a- "SWID_reader" (il y a 2 versions en fonction de ton type de GPS => SWID_1B_reader pour un ancien GPS "CIC" et SWID_DE_reader pour un GPS dernière génération "NBT") te donnera le fichier en ".fsc". Ce logiciel ne fonctionne que connecté à ta voiture au moyen d'un cable ...
b- Ensuite tu utilises le soft "BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator" dans lequel tu lui précises le fichier fsc et la carte. Il te donnera le code FSC que tu rentreras dans ton GPS en étape 2

Merci beaucoup pour ces infos.

J'avais déjà trouvé la carte.... mais apparemment pas la dernière car premium 2014-1.

La version du GPS dépend de la voiture ou de l'année ? dans mon cas un X1 luxe de 2010.

Et pour ce fameux cable, il se trouve facilement ? car après une rapide recherche sur un célèbre site d'enchère je trouve que des cables coutant plusieurs fois le cout d'une mise à jour.

Merci encore (en espérant que je ne pollu pas le forum avec du français).

Has anyone here brought their car to the dealer after generating their own FSC code and uploading the latest maps ? I don't want them to void the warranty on my NAV unit :/ . Thanks.

It is not an issue. The FSC Code you generate is identical to that which BMW would provide for you.

Finally got it working

Firstly I extracted my DE file using ESys, using Aritaurus post:

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.
Then I followed these steps using the BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator, you will need the NBT.exe in your tools directory (google for the file):

1. Save the FSC file and name the file to XYYYYYY.FSC [XYYYYYY are the last 7 characters of your VIN]
2. Put the FSC-file into same directory as your Base64.exe (in tools directory)
3. Open a command prompt (DOS Screen) and go to this directory (tools directory)
4. Type "Base64 XYYYYYY.FSC XYYYYYY_000DE001.FSC" and press enter
5. Open BMW-FSC-NBT-Generator.exe
6. Click "Browse" and select the FSC file you generated in step 1
7. Choose your map product from the list (For me it was "Road Map EUROPE NEXT 2014-2")
8. Click "Generate"

update maps on i3

I have successfully updated to the latest Europe maps for X3 (2011 with CIC) and F30 (2014 with NBT) using the methods described (e-sys and tools from BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator.rar) . Many thanks to this great forum.

Now I am trying the same procedure with my friends i3. The procedure seems to works just fine but the code generated is not accepted. Mind you it is the same map that I could successfully load on my own F30.

I would appreciate if anyone can confirm that this method also works on i3. Or do they have their own maps maybe with charging points included (just a wild guess).

Thanks!

Is a token required to run E-sys to grab the 1B or DE file?
