Hello. That looks like the pro-nav system to me (with the split screen). This system uses a DVD which slots in underneath the main CD player.
That being the case, you must have a disc in otherwise you wouldn't get to the navigation screen. Does the disc you're using cover your country (i.e. can you rotate the idrive know to zoom out and see if any other countries are covered)?
The only other thing I could suggest is performing a system restart: Hard reset for the 2009 iDrive
Also worth a try is disconnecting the battery for half an hour or so.
well ....i guess iam missing out my map's country ,,,
so i need to u to help me find an online source to download from it or even an online store i might buy it and fix this issue...
ur help is really appreciated
