Weirdly.. this is TomTom/Garmin's fault. Mapping for any sat nav in Europe has various licences to pay to various authorities (like the OS in the UK). Garmin and TomTom pay a flat fee as their unit sales make it worthwhile, whereas poor old BMW don't shift enough units to be able to do this.

That said, I'm pretty impressed with the maps on iDrive. Belgium changes its road system on a seemingly nightly basis and so far it's not let me down/tried to send me the wrong way down a one way street...

£150 or so for an update is fairly low by comparison to others (Volvo is about £400, Audi about £500, Range Rover £300ish, Aston... If you have to ask, you can't afford it :))
