If I'm going on a long trip, yes the OEM is fine, but if I'm going near a city both Google and Apple have far better real time traffic and will reroute me around issues that come up, OEM navigation just sends me into traffic and lets me sit there.
Agreed, I've only had my BMW for a few months but from what I've experienced so far Google Maps is better than BMW's maps. Sometimes I just say eff it and use my Android phone with GMaps and use bluetooth audio lol. If BMW would start using the Google Maps API and stop using first party maps their navi would be excellent.
