F56 EVO SatNav Map updates

I updated the EVO Maps on my F56 XL SatNav from 2016-02 to 2018-01 yesterday.

I found the maps online for free, and to my surprise I didn't need an FSC code to update them. Zero cost upgrade!

Very interesting! Apart from the data, does the update also change the design of the maps? Would also appreciate a link, if at all possible. Thanks!

I found the link to the torrent file at the link below and downloaded it. They are the Europe Maps.

https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1475899

I used the transmission app to download the files. I then formatted a USB drive as exFAT and copied the contents to it. I plugged it into my F56, it recognised the update and asked if I wanted to update. 40 mins later it was done.

According to the forum, the EVO maps don't need an FSC code, unlike the other maps that BMW use.

No design changes, just updated maps.

Does it have the new road bridge in Edinburgh? If so, I might go for it.

This thread talks more about updates and how you check your current map version

When you say you copied the contents to your exFAT usb stick. How did you extract the files to the usb stick? Did you extract the contents of the NAVD_ folder to the root of the usb stick? Thanks
