Ok, something new here...
The 2 USB ports of my car are not working (both of them, the one in the armrest and the one on the front panel).
They don't charge my iPhone and nothing happens when I plug a USB stick with music files (can't see it in the Media\USB).
I tested with a USB stick who has a red led on it. It flashes when it's plugged in my colleague's Passat but nothing when it's plugged into my car.

Several weeks ago, I had to replace the fuse because the front cigarette lighter (12v) socket wasn't working. But at the moment, it's working.
Is there a separate USB fuse for USB's ?

I was able to get the maps on a 64 GB stick that was Fat32. It started the update but after an HOUR it's still only at 12%.....any idea how.long this update takes??
I had the 2018-1 on there (2015 X6) and I dont remember it taking this long.

Last question, does the car have to be running or can it do it off the battery with the car off?? Except at current rate it will take like 7 hours.....

Any ideas??

It's hilarious just how slow the BMW download manager is at putting the files onto a USB 3 drive though
I think it’s because they’re compressed files that are being extracted.

I think connected drive is playing up, the download app won't let me check for map updates, and the website is not showing any cars linked to my account!

And I can't find a way to start/force the update in the iDrive.

Car : 2016 BMW 330e F30 with NBTevo
USB stick: Samsung 64Gb Fit Plus

Maps download and saved on the USB stick using the BMW software "Download manager"
I formatted the USB stick in FAT32 with my MacBook.

Could someone help me ?
I had to click on "navigate" in the main menu after the USB was installed to start the update process. But I have a 2013 with CIC, yours may be different.
