    BMW Sat Nav IDrive Professional Sat Nav Update DVD/CD Disc 2012

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this has been asked a number of times before, I can't seem to find an answer!

    I have the 2005 BMW Professional DVD Sat Nav system in my car which is obviously very dated. I wanted to upgrade to the 2012 version and I seen the following item on eBay:

    BMW Sat Nav IDrive Professional Sat Nav Update DVD/CD Disc 2012 | eBay

    I'm pretty sure these are not genuine BMW DVDs as they have speed cameras and postcodes loaded onto them. Should I stay clear from these or do they work perfectly fine?

    I fear it may mess with my iDrive system or something!

    Has anybody else used these DVDs?

    I've only had my 6 series for a month so I don't know much about the iDrive system/Sat Nav in the car.

    Your help and advice is very much appreciated guys

    Kind Regards,
    Hassan

    Genuine DVD? . OEM ones do not come with speed cam info, and at 9 quid, you know it's a burnt copy on DVD. You need to know where to get yourself a free copy . Besides, there is no 2012 version...latest will be 2011 maps

    It's also hit and miss to burn yourself a copy which plays nicely with the iDrive DVD player - I've yet to find a reliable brand which works as well as the OEM discs.

    The price from BMW is good incentive for me to keep trying though...

    I've struggled with write speed of less than 4x. I need to install Nero or suchlike on my windows box and try it as close to 1x as I can get.

    Is it an ISO image you are burning?
